Just had lunch here, can't fault the decor, service or food. What a difference, well done! We would recommend it. The restaurant is excellent and relatively inexpensive with a small but nice choice of wines.

Recently visited the Lansdowne Strand and was very impressed with the recent refit, as you walked in there was a lovely smell of wood burning fire and a warm welcome from the bar staff. From beginning to end nothing was too much trouble and we were able to feel relaxed and at home in quite sophisticated surroundings. We started with...

Tried out the Lansdowne for the first time after reading positive reviews and they are well justified.A comfortable,attractive dining room staffed by smart,polite well trained young people whose service was first class.This was matched by the excellent food produced by obviously well trained kitchen staff.The pork steaks we sampled were as close to perfection as anyone could cook a piece...

The last time we ate at the Lansdowne it was a disaster, cold and unwelcoming, they couldn't get anything right, not even the free bottle of ice cold red wine, over the years have seen this place go from bad to worst, getting very dirty and shabby, such a shame being the first place you see when you come into...

Needed a place to stay for a night & I wasn't disappointed. It is great value, well old but I loved that. Staff were very friendly. I had an evening meal what was very satisfactory and I thought the breakfast was great. I had a single room and I parked the motorbike in the yard, which was pretty safe. I...

This landmark building in Calne has been transformed by Arkell's Brewery into a really good venue for eating, drinking and sleeping. The public areas have been imaginatively modernised whilst retaining the character of an old coaching inn. The upstairs rooms will no doubt be given a make-over in time, but overall the quality of the bed, the bed linen and...

What do you look for in a pub/ inn/ old coach house? I look for warm welcome, comfortable seating areas with fires where coffees served as well as alcoholic drinks and attentive staff plus great food at a reasonable price. Well we had it all at this one!! It is recently converted and redesigned to create a great space and...

For years this hotel has been run down, dirty, scruffy and the thought of having a meal there akin to torture. However at the end of last year it had a complete revamp and some new managers. The place had been transformed and a welcome relief to us locals who have been desperate for somewhere decent for a night out...

Hello finedinerWiltshire, What a lovely review by somebody with a name full of such promise (albeit self-proclaimed!)! It's so encouraging, and much appreciated by all, to receive such effusive feedback. As you say it has been quite a transformation and we are very proud to have just received recognition for the fantastic food by the AA who have awarded us...
