Places to eat

We can personally recommend all the pubs mentioned!

The Museum Inn – a 5-minute walk up the lane to the village of Farnham is where you will find our favourite pub… www.museuminn.co.uk (Tel: 01725 516261)

The King John is a 5-minute drive, in the lovely village of Tollard Royal – we often walk to it through Farnham, passing the back of the Larmer Tree, dropping down to the road leading to Tollard Royal. Proper directions will be given if needed!.. www.kingjohninn.co.uk (Tel: 01725 516207)

The Beckford Arms at Fonthill Gifford (another favourite) is a 20-minute drive; this has the feel of a very relaxed country house, (only because you can have coffee in another room on comfy sofas after your meal) – www.beckfordarms.com (Tel: 01747 870385)

The Fontmell at Fontmell Magna is also great, we prefer to have a table in the bar area, that could be because we are nosy! www.thefontmell.com (Tel: 01747 811441)

The Anchor at Shapwick has gone through a few changes, and thankfully is back to being a good pub again… www.anchorshapwick.co.uk (Tel: 01258 857269)

The Forester at Donhead St Andrew does the best fish dishes, they are passionate about fish, but for meat eaters, the standard is also excellent – www.theforesterdonheadstandrew.co.uk (Tel: 01747 828038)
