    The Swan

    Our community hub

    The Swan has stood for over 350 years in our little village of Enford which sits on the River Avon, just 7 miles north of Stonehenge. It has seen many changes in this time as the village has grown from a small farming community to a popular home for locals and commuters alike. When you visit us, we take pleasure in sharing this heritage with you. The photos and postcards you'll see in the pub are copies of ones loaned to us by villagers who have lived in and around Enford for many years or from keen collectors of local history memorabilia. Some even date back to the late 1800s.


    As the villagers watched their local bakery, garage, post office and shop disappear over time, they were deterined to keep the pub as the village's last remaining amenity. In fact, the building is still owned by a small group of villagers who are as passionate as we are about our unique public house.


    This is where you find The Swan today. At the heart of its community. We serve locals not just from Enford but from the surrounding hamlets of Coombe, Compton and East Chisenbury as well as the larger villages such as Netheravon, Upavon and Durrington.


    Our Grade II listed building has historic significance and is in a conservation area which runs through our pretty village to the south and north. Swans nest just across the road and are often seen with their cygnets from Enford bridge which links the village to the main A345. The National Cycle Network also runs directly through Enford and we back onto Salisbury Plain which is a popular walking spot, especially with Buster! We are popular with cyclists, walkers and tourists as well as villagers who all blend together to create a special atmosphere unique to The Swan.

    Hannah Timperley

    Operations Manager

    I am delighted to introduce myself as the new operator of The Swan. My name is Hannah, and I am thrilled to become a part of this wonderful community. I bring with me a deep passion for hospitality, a love for good food and drink, and a commitment to creating a welcoming and vibrant atmosphere for everyone.


    My journey in the hospitality industry began over a 25 years ago in a small, family-owned pub, where I quickly fell in love with the energy and camaraderie that a great pub can foster. Over the years, I have done pretty much every job in food apart from being a Chef!


    I firmly believe that a pub is more than just a place to enjoy a drink – it is the cornerstone of the community, a place where friendships are forged, stories are shared, and memories are made. My vision for The Swan is to create a warm, inviting space where everyone feels at home. Whether you are here to catch up with friends, enjoy a family meal, or simply relax with a pint, you can always expect a friendly welcome and excellent service.


    To celebrate this new chapter, I would like to invite you all to a Grand Reopening event on Friday 2nd August. Join us for an evening of drinks, delicious food, and live music. It will be a fantastic opportunity to meet you all, share my vision for the pub, and listen to your thoughts and ideas.


    Thank you for welcoming me into this incredible community. I am truly excited about the future of The Swan and look forward to many wonderful times ahead. Here's to new beginnings and to making The Swan the best it can be!




    Hannah and the team are looking forward to bringing you lots of new events in the future!

    Grand Reopening!!

    Friday 2nd August 2024

    My team and I are looking forward to welcoming you all back to The Swan on Friday 2nd August! We will have food, music and drinks available on the night! You will see we have some recognisable faces behind the bar and a couple of new ones too! It really has been a team effort (you all know who you are!) to get us to this point and I will be forever eternally grateful for all the work you have put in!


    See you all very soon! Lets get the party started!

    SWANFEST was simply the best!

    An epic round up of our favourite music and beers

    Our annual beer and music festival, held on the last bank holiday in August 2023 was quite simply the best one yet. The rain held off for most of the day despite dire forecasts and we had record numbers to come and celebrate 9 summers in the Swan.

    The day began with the young guitarists from Emma's school and ended in chaos with Kova Me Badd who have played all but one of our festivals. With their funky 'Smash Hits' mash up and everything designed to make you dance, they are epic! I suppose we should have an 'arty' photo of the event but this one sums up the brilliant end to a brilliant day with literally everyone dancing and drinking.

    Summers at The Swan are very special indeed and will be the stuff of legends.

    The village celebrates!

    The King's Coronation was a party and a half

    Coming not all too long after the Queen's jubilee which was a celebratory 'Big Roast', the villages of Enford, Coombe, New Buildings, Chisenbury all gathered together on the road outside the Swan for a party to end all street parties.


    People bought their own food (cooking for 274 on the Jubilee was enough, thank you very much!) and bought drinks from us and generally had a good old knees up.


    With maypole, garden games, informal straw bales as well as picnic tables galore it all kicked off with a rousing rendition of the new National Anthem and ended with people leaving to go and climb the bell tower of our local church.


    A day to remember.

    Down but not out!

    We posted this message on social media channels on Wed 15th Dec

    Dearest followers of the Swan.


    It is with really heavy hearts that we have had to make the decision to close The Swan fully until the 1st February, unless the rules change and believe us when we say, we’ll be the first with our doors open!!


    We want The Swan to be a happy, busy, thriving place with our current staff team and in order to protect this and give our customers the experience they expect & deserve, we are making this tough decision.


    As many of you know since the start of the pandemic The Swan has done its utmost to make sure that the village and surrounding areas have been looked after; our pop-up shop and delivery to takeaways and the Eat out to Help out scheme however, the new rules in place at the moment really don’t allow us to run the Swan as it should be.


    The last two weeks, with limited opening because of limited mixing rules, limited hours and limited food offer we feel it’s not sensible to open and throw away money which could be used to ensure we are safe in the near future. To be clear, the business is still very viable and we have been almost fully booked on each sitting we’ve opened for but this is an old building that costs lots to heat, look after and love and a staff team who depend on us to keep their families safe, happy, heated and fed. We can’t afford to lose it for them, if no one else. Instead, we’ve urged them to find volunteer work to support others locally.


    Christmas in our pub is full of laughter, joy, full tummies and happy people and our favourite time of year. To not be able to share it with you is gut wrenching – we’re thinking Christmas in July?!


    We know that some people will be saying “well, other pubs are staying open” but please remember all pubs run very differently with different costs and they too will be doing what’s best for the survival of their business whether that’s staying open or making the same hard decision we have had to make.


    We’ve spoken to all who’ve ordered hampers and they’re still available for collection on Christmas Eve. We will let you know when take away begins again and if the rules change, you can expect us to be ‘on it’ and back open in a flash!


    A big thank you to all that have supported us in these very strange times and WE WILL BE BACK once it is viable to do so.


    Have a very happy Christmas and New Year

    Pete, Emma and team Swan.

    Coronavirus can't keep us down!

    Opening again on the anniversary of our 7th birthday - 4th July

    An irony not lost on us!


    We have had 6 amazing years in The Swan since opening our doors on 4th July 2014 and this 4th July we will reopen them again for our 7th birthday. We hope the next 5 years match the successes and meet the needs of the community we serve as well as the many who come to visit from afar. On our opening day this year (2020), a family drove from London to come and eat with us proving it really is worth the drive!


    We have got all our COVID-19 risk assessment and safety measures in place with tables spaced out a little more than usual and no drinking at the bar, it's going to take us all a little time to get used to it but the sound of happy voices inside and out on 4th July was possibly the best sound we've heard all year!


    Welcome back!

    Essential services for our community

    We won't be beaten by a virus!

    Coronavirus might have closed our pub on Friday March 20th but we are not ones to sit back so we opened up a pop-up shop for the duration of closure doing deliveries to local villages. As lockdown eased, we opened a weekend takeaway service which proved so popular, it's here to stay! 


    We want to look back on the enforced closure and periods of isolation with memories of how a community came together to support each other. We believe we CAN make this a positive time if we all act together.

    The shop how now closed although if you are running short of any dry goods, meat, milk, butter, eggs, bread or fruit and veg, we've probably got it in stock so please do ask.


    The take-away service will run each night we are open (Tues - Sat) between 6pm and 8pm.

    Super Swanfest

    We celebrated our 5th birthday in style: 10 bands, 20 beers, 100s of people!

    We’ve just celebrated our 4th Swanfest for our 5th birthday and it was AMAZING! The weather was very kind with a resurgence of hot sunny weather just being perfectly timed and beer and cider flowed freely.

    The day kicked off with Jimmy Moore on the guitar and ended with The Chaos Brothers punk band and finally Soul Traders 12 piece band gave us an incredible finish.

    Food was eaten, beer was drunk and we’ve booked bands already for next year! Saturday August 29th - keep it free

    Litter picking locals

    A very special village where community is king!

    What to do when the sun comes out in early Spring and the dregs of winter need to be banished?


    Call on the locals! They came in droves to help clear the village, from East Chisenbury through to Coombe of all things litter. With a huge stash of bags full of little from the bridleways, footpaths and roadsides, the helpful volunteers were rewarded with breakfast (well, brunch really) from us at The Swan, paid for by The Hub in the Pub, our Thursday coffee and cake stop.

    The village looked resplendent afterwards and nothing can beat the sense of satisfaction when you drive along the road knowing you played a part in making it a better place. Thankyou to one and all who helped out.

    See in the New Year with us!

    Our first ever 'Silent Disco' night at The Swan to dance in the 2019

    OK so we're a small pub but we never, ever let this stop us from having a good old party and knees up! If there's one time of year when you should be partying and not sat at home watching boring old TV, it's New Year's Eve!


    Of course, we have lovely neighbours and already test their limits with the annual beerfest in Autumn so we were completely inspired by the Silent Disco idea which means we can all have a party but not be too rowdy. Well, that's the idea at least!


    Headphones with 3 different channels of music, a glitter ball and smoke machine as well as sparkly curtains mean we are in for a lot of fun!


    You can book a table with us to eat from 6pm onwards (food stops at 9pm though so do get one booked) and then we clear tables at 9.30pm and dancing starts thereafter until we see in the New Year at midnight when we'll serve bacon buns.


    We can't wait!

    Best of British - it's official

    Voted Countryside Alliance British Pub Champion 2017

    It's all about community, great beer and good food


    This award is really special to us as it celebrates all that is good rurally and that's what we're passionate about. We are committed to using local suppliers, listening to the needs of our community and trying hard to accommodate what they want from our rural setting. We were overwhelmed when we were nominated and got through to win the regional South West finals but had no idea that we'd be crowned British Champion of these 'Rural Oscars'. This award goes much further than just Pete and Emma, it's the whole community and all the people who've worked so hard for us since we began here in July 2014 - thank you to one and all!

    We will simply continue doing what we do best and welcoming one and all, trying not to say no to new ideas and keep putting the countryside and community and the heart of it all.

    Easy wind and downy flake

    Snow has found our village and looks set to stay for a while

    We've been waiting for a snow photo of the pub for 4 years and finally, we have it! This one was taken on Thurs 1 March at about 5pm when the light was fading but the cosiness of the pub shone as the beacon of light in the village. We're open throughout the snow and even having a new floor laid in the bar area but beers, wines and a bit of a laughter await those who dare to brave the snow.

    Brand new kitchen!

    Our old kitchen was dragged into the 21st Century!

    We've been in the pub for 3 and a half years and the kitchen was beginning to show it's age - the team were using just 3 hobs (you probably have more at home) and an oven that only worked on one side and the top shelf. The grill had seen better days too BUT, October 2017 saw the dawn of a brand new kitchen.

    An old cupboard was knocked out to create one long prep space (With 3 full time chefs, we also needed more space), a new Rationale oven installed (at extortionate cost but Pete assures us it's worth it!), a new 6 burner oven replaced our tired old one and new cladding on the wall and non-slip flooring topped it all off.

    We regularly cook for almost 100 people a day and Christmas 2017 saw us smash all of our previous records for people served. We host parties of 20-40 people for various functions and the new kitchen means we can food to you quicker and more consistently.

    It was certainly worth the wait!

    50 years of Barrel emptying!

    Sheriff, our lovely local reaches an important milestone

    Every pub has a group of locals that really make the pub special. We are no different.


    Sheriff (really called Dave) has been drinking in The Swan for 50 years - na incredible milestone. He is our 'go to' for all things Swan and Enford related and has seen the pub go through good times and bad. He remembers the old fireplace, helping to clear out the garden, the old staircase that went up through the middle of the pub to the upstairs, the various landlords and comings and goings. He is a walking talking Enford encyclopaedia! Chances are, if you come into the pub on a Friday or Saturday evening or a Sunday lunchtime, you'll meet Sheriff and, although he keeps himself to himself and is (relatively) well behaved (!) he'll have a laugh and point out the good beers to try.

    Wiltshire Life - BEST PUB OF THE YEAR!!

    Awarded in March 2017

    We are so honoured to have been voted Wiltshire Life's Pub of the Year 2017. Who would have thought that it could ever be us?! We absolutely love Wiltshire, are very proud to call it home and very proud to serve Wiltshire food to both our local customers and those who visit us from farther afield. The award is a great recognition of all that we do but also of our customer's passion for all things Wiltshire too and their unrelenting enthusiasm for the pub and village life. We are very, very lucky in this day and age to have such a fabulous staff and be a popular pub - the statistics of pubs closing every week are staggering and we're delighted to be battling against this. Thank you!

    Conker competition!

    Who said conkers were for children?!

    Some boys just never really grow up!


    Each month our fireplace is redecorated to reflect the season or events. On spying the conkers on the fireplace for autumn, these naughty chaps from the First Thursday Club couldn't resist and were soon skewering holes in them, stealing laces from their shoes and playing conkers. Hume had even brought conkers from home (I wonder if his sons spotted them missing?!).

    Simon emerged victorious in the inaugural competition in 2016 but Johnnie won in 2017 so it's all up for grabs in the autumn of 2018! We did spy the cheating though - stealing them from the fireplace once they're baked nice and hard is not really fair is it?!!!

    Stocking Local Ales ALL the time

    Keeping it local is so important

    It was fantastic to receive CAMRA recognition for our pursuit of fine ales recently. The LocAle award means that we permanently stock locally brewed cask ales all supplied by breweries within 30 miles of our pub. We always have something from our most local brewery on tap: Stonehenge Ales (www.stonehengeales.co.uk) and then take from a huge range;

    • Three Daggers at Edington  www.threedaggers.co.uk
    • Plain Ales at Sutton Veny      www.plainales.co.uk
    • Twisted at Westbury               www.twisted-brewing.com
    • Milk Street in Frome               www.milkstreetbrewery.co.uk     to name but a few.

    Pop in and see what we have on offer!

    Specialist + scaffold =super cob!

    Our beautiful building needed a bit of 21st century help

    It's amazing what you find when you scratch the surface


    Our beautiful building (OK, not looking so lovely in this photo!) needed a new coat! The main part of the pub dates from the 16th century and was made from brick, flint, lime mortar and cob but over the years, has been repainted with modern plastic based paints and taken a bit of a beating. We have worked with Nick Buxcey, cob and lime specialist, to restore the outside of the building to it's former glory. He and his son Harry, have spent many painstaking hours scraping paint from the back and front of the building and are now re-coating with natural lime products and repairing chunks of the damaged wall.

    During the process, we have discovered an old clay pipe, a coin from 1771 buried in the mortar of a later extension of the pub and the original fire insurance plaque from the 1770s!

  • FOOD

    All our food is home made and, wherever possible, locally sourced.

    We work closely with all of our suppliers to get the very best available as well as other small producers who believe in the same things we do.

    Homemade without the hassle of washing up!


    We have a good selection of warm and cold starters to share or keep all to yourself as well as a 'Swan favourites' board full of pub classics which are all homemade by Pete & Jemma in our kitchen. Lasagne (meat & veggie options), sausages made to our own recipe, chilli, salmon goujons or fresh fishcakes and more as well as our own infamous 'Swan's burger' with as much cheese and bacon as you can manage! In addition to this, we have a good range of additional main meals which reflect seasonal availability; game, fish freshly caught or a proper pie handmade by us as well as the choice of the best steaks we can find.

Our ice creams are all from local supplier Marshfields and you can round off your meal with coffee.

    Roasts on Sundays

    Simply legendary

    Why cook when you can go out?


    We think there's nothing better than relaxing in a pub with a cold drink and huge roast in the company of family, friends or just on your own, particularly when the fire is roaring and it's cold outside!


    We usually have at least 2 roast meats; beef and pork but are also known to have venison or partridge or chicken depending on our local supply. Of course, you can't have pork without crunchy crackling and you can't have beef without Yorkshire puds - Pete's a Yorkshire man through and through so knows how to do them well!

    We've got it all; a proper pint, great wine and everything in between!


    We held our inaugural beer festival 'Swanfest' in August 2015 and showcased 20 local beers; in 2016 we showcased 25, from a range of our usual suppliers as well as new ones for you to all test out - the most popular are now stocked in the Swan and we're planning 2021's already!


    You can even try them out with our 'beer flights' - have a third of a pint of 3 different beers all for the price of 1!


    To top it off, we've just been awarded the Cask Marque seal of approval for the 6th year in a row and CAMRA's LocAle award for stocking local beers.


    We also have 30+ gins in stock all of the time and an extensive wine list from our brilliant suppliers, WineUtopia. Something for everyone!

    Brewed less than 2 miles away in Netheravon, James & Nicola have done a phenomenal job taking over from the longstanding team of Stig, Anne-Marie. Stig's Danish brewing techniques remain and James and Nicola are adding their own style to this old brewery. They're our most popular beers by far.

    Great Bustard is our best seller - a deep amber bitter with a deep red hue - at 4.8% it's not for the faint hearted!

    Stone Daisy Brewery

    This year we were keen to feature some new breweries at our annual Swanfest but wanted to keep it local - within 30 miles which is the official CAMRA definition.

    We chanced upon Stone Daisy brewery and put two of their beers on - they flew!

    Add to this the guys who brew them are just lovely and keen to work with local pubs and they haven't been off the bar since!

    We put the 3Daggers Ale on as a trial back in February 2015 and haven't been able to take it off the bar since! It's an easy, amber drink at 4.1%ABV and, it's brewed locally in Edington which is a bonus! Our locals have gone to great lengths to ensure we never run out, even fetching a barrel of it for us direct from the brewery over a bank holiday after drinking us dry the night before!! We regularly stock the 'Daggers Ale' but have been know to try their specialist 'Festival Ale' at 4.2% and 'Daggers edge' at 4.7%.

    We added to our cider range back in 2016 with Kingstone Press Classic Apple and Kingstone Press Berries - both are extra chilled and super delicious with just enough sparkle.

    If you prefer something a bit more traditional, Thatchers Gold, a classic, is also on tap.

    This is a special one! Not only do we get beer from here, we also buy our customer's favourite vodka - homemade on the Ramsbury estate, and now, their new gin too! We love the folks at Ramsbury because they're always onto the next big thing. The vodka is so smooth and the gin so tasty, you'd be forgiven for forgetting about their beer (although that's great too!)

    This fantastic micro-brewery, under the White Horse at Westbury in Wiltshire, was a chance entry onto our Swanfest list in 2015 and we haven't looked back. Goucho (4.6% ABV), a ruby ale, is our favourite but we are spoilt for choice! The team at Twisted produce great session ales and we love their beer badges too!

    Milward wines were born in 2021 but we'd worked closely with Richard for many years.

    Along with Jemma, our manager, he makes sure we have the best selection of wines available. We've also added to our port range as this is a popular favourite and we are very proud to stock wine from Danebury Vineyard which is less than 30 miles from our pub. You can try their lovely crisp white or a sparkling English wine knowing that it's so local you can get there in 20 minutes.

    We are well known for a huge selection of gins and it would be impossible to limit it to just one supplier or brand - we love them all! Honouring Pete's Yorkshire heritage, we always have Mason's gins in (the tea one is our fav) and we're hooked by Tarquin's Cornish gin but also partial to a little Jensen's, Bloom, Gin Mare, Test Valley summer solstice, Ramsbury Gin made only 30 miles away....we could carry on but it's best you come and try them with us!


    We believe in serving the best food that comes from the best ingredients we can find and, where possible, this being local. We're learning all the time and always on the lookout for a new supplier to provide us with something that's local and that extends beyond the food too. As we've been updating the pub and giving the building that little bit of love that it has needed for so long, we sought out some of the best local business people and trades.

    No pub is a proper pub anymore without a good food offer and we are extremely loyal to our suppliers, many of whom have worked with Pete over the past 15 years. We've also really enjoyed finding out what suppliers are local to us and making sure we support them too.

    Building bits

    Living and working in a grade II listed building requires a good deal of dedication, pennies and being completely honest with yourself about your limits. Find out who we've worked with to restore our beautiful old pub.

    The wall in the photo opposite became damp after we lined the chimney and when our cob man took it back to brick, we discovered an original beam, hidden cubby hole and part of the original foundations!  Needless to say, we've restored them so that you can have a sneaky peek at the old building as well as traditional cob and lime mortar plaster.

    Our other partners

    From the decorations around the fireplace to the framed pictures, printing, Swanfest partners and many more. 


    Delicious, home-made, home-cooked food is what we're all about (and good beer of course).

    Forest Meats

    We've teamed up with this award winning butchers who work hard to provide us with the best quality meats available. They can offer full traceability and are consistent - without them, we are nothing!


    Kenyons - Fruit & vegetables

    Niki, Steve and Jason work the longest hours we know to provide us and lots of local businesses with the best fruit and veg. Niki will often pop a few extras of something in our order which will later turn up on the menu as something exciting. They're based in Andover and deliver to other restaurants, pubs and greengrocers.


    James Waight- meat - as local as you can get!

    When James, our local farmer, approached us about stocking some of his pork and beef, we jumped at the chance but our local venison also comes from him too and he lives and farms in Enford.


    Fowle Play at Willowdene

    Cassie, who used to work for us, introduced us to her family farm and their egg-cellent eggs and we haven't looked back. Just 3 miles up the road, Tim delivers trays upon trays for us; many are double yolkers and, because they're free range, they're always the most phenomenal rich yolk colour.


    Where would we be without good beer and a range of good wines and soft drinks?

    Stonehenge Ales - 1 mile away!

    Stig and his small team produce our most popular cask ale by hand less than a mile away. Based at the mill in Netheravon, we sell around 140 pints of this beautiful beer each week. You can even arrange for a brewery tour of your own.




    Marstons - all over the place!

    We have worked closely with David and the team at Marstons since moving into The Swan and they have been first class at giving us a helping hand and guiding our ale choices. We love Marstons because although they own many of the smaller brewers, Ringwood, Jennings, Banks etc, they have allowed these smaller brewers to retain their own characters. Our lagers, cider and some beers come from them.



    This Somerset soft drinks company are our go-to for our Coke, Lemonade and Diet Coke. Super reliable and great tasting, they keep us going all year round.


    Milward Wines

    Milward Wines may be a small company but they are perfectly formed! Based only 30 miles from us, they source wine from around the globe, ensuring we get to hear about new things first and always have a great selection in stock. We were so impressed by Richard's knowledge and clear passion to get even a non-drinker drinking that we went with them and formed a whole new wine menu.



    We used to buy our soft drinks and spirits from a range of suppliers far away but found that Nectar's growth in this market was only bettered by the fact that they are so local to us. We are a small business and we love local so why not support them and they support us?! Although we stock soft drinks from all over the place, they all come through a local firm. Can't beat that!




    Who knew that there would be so much to do on an old building. Not quite Grand Designs but certainly a labour of love! We are so grateful to all the people who have been so patient with us as we've learnt new things about restoring a beautiful old building.

    TurnItRound - Property maintenance

    Emma's dad Richard has been, at times, the only ray of sunshine when we've had burst pipes and damp walls. They are no more as he has worked his wonderful magic on the building as well as the back and front gardens, drains, gutters, plumbing, painting, get the picture? It takes a very special someone to be able to turn their hand to all these jobs which are immediate as well as having an eye on the longer term needs of an old building.



    Adam Nash - Master thatcher

    Adam and his team came to us in August 2014 when our thatch leaked very badly. They stopped other jobs and prioritised the pub as the roof wouldn't make it through the winter and by the end of November, we had the most beautiful, newly thatched roof. It was a pleasure watching it be transformed as well as being educated in this incredible trade. Truly a master craftsman.



    Bits & Pieces - DIY store

    **Sadly closed but we loved them whilst they were open**


    RGV Engineering - plumbing, heating and electrical engineers

    A really local business only 1 mile away have helped us through the colder months by installing a brand new boiler and sorting our very ancient heating system.



    Juan & Stuart Rolfe - Painter Decorators

    Our angels in painting aprons! Juan and Stuart had worked with Emma at her school and were the first people to give us a ray of hope when we moved in. They work through the night to make miracles happen and transformed the pub from a dark old building into a beautiful, Farrow & Ball green country pub!


    Justin Woods - Grove Plumbers

    We're sure we're not the only ones to find sourcing a good plumber a complete headache but Justin is fab! A one man band, we're reluctant to share his details too widely in case you all book him up! He sorted our new toilets for us and is always on hand and understanding of the needs of our old building.



    JK Carpets - Durrington

    For a small shop, they have an amazing choice of floors and have helped to make our upstairs feel like a home again. Jason & Kevin are just the best carpet fitters who get it all done in a jiffy - even our tricky stairs that everyone else said 'couldn't be done'.



    Tree Technique

    If you knew the pub or village of old, you'd know that some massive Leylandii had taken up residence outside the pub and overgrown the telegraph pole, the water meter and half of the car park. Lee and his team sorted this for us and now the village has sight of our beautiful roof and the car park has gained an extra space! And they're local - based in Amesbury.



    Wiltshire hurdles - Market Lavington

    By removing the huge trees near the car park, not only was blue sky revealed but also our gas bottles, oil tank and various other, unsightly bits that keep the pub functioning. Bill and Debbie handbuilt our beautiful hazel hurdle fencing that runs over the edge of the car park and restores the pub to it's former pretty outlook. Plus gives our neighbours a nicer view!




    If we've missed anyone out - we're sorry! Please let us know.  

    We couldn't have done it without these very special little (and big) businesses and continue to use them and any others to bring all of our customers a great English pub experience. 

    These Fair Hands - Hampshire

    Emma spotted Paul from These Fair Hnds at a craft show and loved his work instantly so we commissioned him to create our beer bats (see the photos on the drinks page of our website. We love them and so do our visitors as it means they can try three beers at once! www.thesefairhands.co.uk


    Unstuck design - Salisbury

    We knew the moment we stepped into the design studio tucked away into the little barn in Upper Woodford that we would love working with Unstuck and we haven't been disappointed. James and his team (including the brilliant Paul and Bexi) have listened to what we want and come up with things that totally reflect us and our style. www.unstuckdesign.co.uk


    Garden Inn - Stockbridge

    So, a little further out than normal but the lovely ladies at the Garden Inn help Emma to get the flowers for the pub spot on.



    Original Glory - Framers in Devizes

    Although a tiny shop front, this is an aladdin's cave of Farrow and Ball paints plus frames and mounts for pictures. We've used them on several occasions and are always pleased with the result.



    Barbara Leatham Photography

    99% of the photos on our website are Barbara's. Her patience, energy and ability to see things from all kinds of angles and think of things we'd never considered are second to none. Highly recommended.

    Refill station

    Our then local MP, Claire Perry, asked us if we'd consider being part of the 'refill' app network and of course, we said yes!

    You can fill your water bottles here for free from our cold, filtered tap water which is not only great for walkers and cyclists but more importantly, for the environment as we do away with plastic disposable bottles. Just ask at the bar and we'll happily oblige!
