Next to the beautiful Fonthill Estate lake (20 mins away), this is a popular, upmarket pub with great food and service. It is very atmospheric in winter and also has a lovely beer garden including a children's play area at the back. You must book well in advance. Tel: 01747 870385

Great pub with large terrace and garden serving good food with friendly service. Combine with a walk around the stunning Fonthill Estate or a visit to Tisbury.
