After dropping my son off for prom his mum and myself dropped in for a meal. We both ordered Chicken from the main menu. It was beautifully presented and tasted wonderful. Very pleasant staff. This was my first visit and will certainly be going back.

Whilst staying nearby in Chippenham my husband and I twice had lunch in this lovely gem of a pub. Very friendly staff, and most of all excellent standard of food. The quality was first class. We had the £10 lunch time menu and and both occasions were exceedingly happy with what we had. My husband had the steak and ale... More

My elderly mother and I arrived and were seated at 1.55pm for the 2pm sitting for the Sunday Carvery. However we then waited until 2.20pm until the carvery commenced - when the whole room, save for maybe a dozen people, got out of their seats and started to queue!! Seemed a very strange way to run a carvery. That said,... More

Thank you for the review we had some technical problems on Sunday which meant we ran over on the 2pm sitting by a few minutes. I am sorry you had to wait but very happy you enjoyed your meal. Regards James More

I think it's very hard to find a good Sunday Lunch but today came pretty close! The roast beef was amazing and the cauliflower cheese very good. Gluten free gravy and Yorkshire Puddings were available for my daughter which was good to see (gravy very 'peppery' she thought). If I had any criticism it was that the meal wasn't piping... More

Have you ever had a starter served on a bed of ketchup? I have, just now, at the Biddestone Arms. For my main course, I had Cornish hake with crab risotto. If I was making risotto, I would chop the vegetables up before I added them to the saucepan. Oh, and remove the tomato stems. And add the crab at... More

Brilliant night on Saturday. Family outing with my brother and sister and respective partners. The three siblings are all allergic to wheat so brilliant to find somewhere with a comprehensive gluten free menu, a real privilege. The pub is in a beautiful place, it's easy to find, it has a huge car park. We received a very warm welcome and... More

Superb quality meals. The pies were delicious and the fish and chips top notch. The children's meal we ordered was of a very good portion size and high standard. The setting was very comfortable with plenty of table space and room between tables. Service was friendly and helpful without being intrusive. Very impressive selection of specials.
