Skittles Alley

The Silver Plough has one of the few remaining long alley skittle alleys which is available for private parties. The alley is a completely private room and is accessed through the Snug Bar. The Skittle Alley has one long table along side the alley which can accommodate up to 30 guests. If your party is larger, we can make the Snug Bar exclusive use with the Skittle Alley. Parties using the Skittle Alley have a variety of options for food. We have a hot buffet menu which is the most popular for parties it is a selection of hot dishes that are served in large buffet style trays for the party to help themselves at £9.95 per person. The buffet trays cater 10 portions in each one, the hot buffet menu is not for individual ordering it is designed for large parties ordering the same dish in volume. E.g. If your party has thirty guests, three buffet trays of either the same or different dish will need to be ordered, this keeps it very easy for the organiser of the party. We would need the pre order one week prior to the chosen date of the party. The Skittle Alley is extremely popular, there is no charge to use it! The Skittle Alley can be booked in advance for Birthday Parties, Anniversaries, Family Gatherings and Christmas Parties, please feel free to call us to check its availability. Please call to discuss through food options for Skittle parties. Please see menu choices under “Food”.

Local Walks

Whilst in Pitton why not enjoy a leisurely walk. There are many beautiful country walks around the village, most of them with fantastic views across open countryside including the famous Salisbury Cathedral spire.

Pitton is on the famous Clarendon Way walk, a 24 mile walk joining the two Wessex cities of Winchester and Salisbury crossing the Test Valley between Kings Somborne and Houghton. It starts beside the waters of the Itchen in the heart of Winchester and ends near the Avon at Salisbury Cathedral. It provides a splendid variety of scenery along the way, ranging from the water meadows of the valleys with their charming villages through woodland – ancient as well as modern – to downlands with far-ranging views.

The Clarendon Way is named from Clarendon Park on the eastern edge of Salisbury. The Park contains the site of Clarendon Palace, a royal hunting lodge for Norman Kings, but later expanded by the Plantagenets into a great county house. Almost nothing remains now, only a few feet of flint wall lying a few yards from the Clarendon Way.

At Winchester one sees smaller remains which are even older, a few stones beside the River Itchen which are all that survive from the Roman wall built around the City in the 3rd Century. A mile down the valley lies the hospice of St Cross where even 400 years ago the choir boys carved their names on the stalls in the chapel.
