DescriptionThis 16th century coaching inn at Newton Tony enjoys an idyllic position on the banks of the river Bourne just off the A338 and A303 only 8 miles NE of Salisbury.
As an inn renowned for its high quality home produced food, its ales and wines, owners Noel and Annie Cardrew and their friendly efficient staff. The low beamed interconnecting rooms are well furnished with old prints, hunting trophies and all manner of curiosities with a roaring fire of logs and coal in the enormous inglenook fireplace.
The main front windows are said to be made from the stern of a ship. There is a marked absence of gambling machines and background music
The snug is noteworthy for its fantastic collection of photographs and prints celebrating the local aviation history of Boscombe Down alongside archive photographs of Stonehenge festivals of the 1970's and '80s.
There are seats on the small front terrace overlooking the all-weather cricket pitch on the village green and more seats on grass and in the back garden.
FOOD AND DRINK
Using seasonal game from local shoots, lamb raised in the surrounding fields and free-range local pork, the enjoyable food includes a popular spicy rarebit, chicken liver pâté with home-made onion bread, mackerel with gremolata and parsley potatoes, venison en croûte with port jus, breast of lamb stuffed with spicy sausage with rosemary gravy, and puddings such as spiced pear crumble cake and Devon Fudge cheesecake.
Wherever possible food ingredients are sourced locally and are changed on a regular basis. Seasons together with market availability dictate changes to the food and drink offered. Noel the landlord is a keen deer stalker and venison appears regularly on the menu throughout the year with a varied choice of high quality wines and ales to accompany your meal.
The four beer hand pumps are rotated regularly and you may have a choice of any of the following local real ales from breweries such as Butcombe, Fullers, Hop Back, Itchen Valley, Ramsbury, Salisbury, Stonehenge and Triple fff. The Malet also keeps 40 malt whiskies, eight wines by the glass and Westons Old Rosie cider.
