Food and drink
You’ll eat (and sleep) well here. Generous organic food from our farm or our neighbours. A menu that changes most days and always with the seasons. All accompanied by excellent local Arkell’s ales, wines, gins and juices. Our family, friends, and farm workers have shared meals and beers here for 10 years and we only serve the food and drink that we enjoy ourselves.
Stay with us
Our 12 luxurious rooms are a world away from the crowd, set apart from the pub, in a sunny, peaceful courtyard. Each unique room is named and themed after a field on our farm here at Eastbrook, a perfect place to unwind in the beautiful Wiltshire countryside. Sleep deeply in crisp cotton bedding. A hearty breakfast to set you up for your day, whatever it holds, and high speed wifi to keep you connected. Two of our rooms are dog friendly – Kate’s Folly and Barn Field (pet cleaning charge of £20 applies) and dogs are welcome in the pub.
Circular walks to The Ridgeway National Trail that runs across our (tenanted) 1,400 acre organic farm start from our front door. Our farm boundaries to the south give access to thousands more acres of open land, criss-crossed with paths and bridleways, and the glories of pre-historic Wiltshire and Oxfordshire lie all around us. At the right time of year there’s a proper fire to come back to and always newspapers, magazines, books to borrow. Dogs and muddy boots welcome.
Classic car days; track days; garden barbecues, occasional music, always local, and surprisingly talented people who want to play here.
Pigstock in August is usually fun and of course the renowned International Pig Racing Festival is held here annually.
How to find us
This is your place to enjoy. Just a medium stone’s throw from Swindon station, with easy access to London and The Cotswolds.
We’re now combining everything—the pigs, the cows and calves, the landscapes, the wildlife—deer, owls, badgers, flora and fauna generally, although not all of it appears on cue. Our colleague James Andrews, expert at wildlife photography among other skills, will lead the ‘Safari’ tours, in the red land rover
