Review on The Silver Plough
Set in the heart of the rolling Wiltshire countryside, this fine-looking, scrupulously maintained pub started life in the seventeenth century as a farmhouse and became an inn after World War II. Toby jugs, antique glass rolling pins, painted clogs, prints and curios are festooned around the heavily beamed bar, which is fitted out with old carved benches and settles including Ted Heath's favourite seat! Winter log fires ensure a cosy and welcoming atmosphere and in the summer there is al fresco dining in the garden. The pub also has its own skittle alley, which can be hired for private functions.
New owners Stephen and Susan Keys have taken the helm of the Silver Plough, and they are keen to build on the solid reputation and popularity of this immensely likeable pub. The food is based around keenly sourced fresh regional ingredients, including fish on Wednesdays to Sundays. Typical pub classics appear on the menu in the form of a tender steak and ale pie, fish and chips or a tasty sirloin steak. Other options that you could choose would be dolcelatte tart or a honey and goat's cheese salad. The kitchen steps up a gear for their specials, as in seared scallops with black pudding on a pea puree, or duck breast in a fresh cherry and port sauce. The food is supported by a carefully chosen wine list that offers something for everyone in terms of both taste and budget, together with well kept ale.
