This pub used to be a firm favourite with the family when in the area. We returned this week after at least a year, if not more to find that the menu is exactly the same but the people running it and also the quality...More

Nice staff, good food, all freshly cooked and good selection too. Beers Ramsbury ale which both men enjoyed. Worth a visit.

Really nice venue. The food is superb and the staff are really friendly and helpful. The car park is a bit of a challenge but other than that, the Silks can't be faulted.

We visited midweek, and it wasn’t too busy, but since it’s the only place (as far as I know) where you can get food or drink in this village, then you’d probably be advised to book. It makes me sad to see lovely old pubs...More

Hi There are a couple of tables on the patio where they serve food. The garden area is through the car park where they have a few tables but they tend to be for drinks. If you want food outside, make sure you ask when you... More

Silks On The Downs is best described as a friendly & homely ' Gastro Pub '. Our menus change regularly and we source locally from the fantastic produce available around us. We are located in Ogbourne St Andrew, one mile outside the beautiful market town of Marlborough. Adorning our walls are framed silks of leading racehorse owners as worn by the jockeys, reflecting Wiltshire's rich racing heritage, as well as giving the pub its name. We are open daily for lunch and dinner (closed on a Sunday evening).
