A few words
about our traditional English country inn
At The Silver Plough you will find great food, a selection of real ales and a warm welcome from your hosts Mike and Katie and their dedicated team.
Set in the heart of the rolling Wiltshire countryside, this fine looking pub started life in the eighteenth century as a farmhouse, originally known as Ivy Clad Farm, it then became an inn after World War II which is fitted out with old carved benches and settles.
The pub also has its own skittle alley, which can be used for private functions and can also be hired for conferences and meetings. We are purveyors of our home cooked food and use local suppliers were possible.
We can make it the perfect weekend retreat, or provide comfortable overflow accommodation when family or friends are visiting, as we have two self-contained en-suite letting rooms.
We bake cakes!
We do not allow consumption of homemade or bought in cakes at The Silver Plough.
We are more than happy to bake a cake for you to enjoy after the meal, whether it be a small table celebrating a birthday or a large party.

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 Skittle Alley menu which 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.
The finger buffet menu which consists of a selection of sandwiches, quiches, sausage rolls and cakes at £9.95 per person (coffee included).
The last option is the entire party pre order off our main menu, this can be different dishes or the same dish from the main menu. We would need the pre order one week prior to the chosen date of the party. There is not an additional charge for use of the Skittle Alley. It is ideal for parties, anniversaries, charity events and family gatherings. Please see sample menus choices under “Food”.
We have recently decorated the skittle alley with a fresh new look, pictures will be uploaded shortly.
