Pigs, pies, pints and pillows

We are a dining pub with rooms in the middle of our own organic farm in the village of Bishopstone, on the edge of the Wiltshire Downs.
Great service, informally, and a welcome as if it’s your own front room.

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, with their own doors off a sunny, shared 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.

Activities

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.

Events

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.
