OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

On the edge of Salisbury, the inn sits at the centre of the once wealthy riverside market town of Wilton. The town's architectural highlights are within walking distance, such as its surprisingly large and beautiful Italianate church and 16th-century Wilton House, just opposite. Salisbury's cathedral is a ten-minute drive away. Just outside Salisbury is Old Sarum, an Iron Age hill fort. For formal British cooking, try beguiling Howard's House, 15 minutes away by car.

By car: around 1 hour 30 minutes from Bristol, 2 hours 30 minutes from London and 4 hours 10 minutes from Manchester. There is free parking available on-site.

By train: direct trains run to Salisbury Station from London Waterloo (1 hour 30 minutes), Cardiff Central (2 hours 5 minutes) and Portsmouth Harbour (1 hour). The hotel is a 10-minute taxi ride from Salisbury Station. Book traisn to Salisbury.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

The pub has a welcoming and genteel old-world feel, thanks to its collection of antiques and spacious rooms, warmed by open fires. Expect a quiet lounge with an array of armchairs, an open bar area and a restaurant. In summer, the garden at the back is a good bet for a sundowner, with picnic benches lined up beside an attractive walled lawn.

THE FACILITIES

Staff are attentive and always ready to help, despite also enjoying engaging guests in conversation. Check-in is by way of a wooden hatch beside the bar and there is a pleasing degree of separation between the sleeping quarters and the bar area.
