Well if you are there is plenty of it and mighty fine examples of the Traditional Ale brewers craft are there for you to sample.However there is a lot more to this tour than Beer.An interesting visitors centre ,a couple of stunning shire horses (Sam and Jac), gleaming harnesses and vintage industrial architecture. Becky our guide was friendly and knowledgable and led us up and down the brew house allowing inspection of the coppers, mash tun's and fermenting vessels. Great Value for money and a must do if you are visiting wiltshire or on your way to the west country.

I've passed this museum many times and finally got to visit it. It's a super place and the staff were most welcoming. It has a wide range of prehistoric artefacts, in particular from the Bronze Age. Finds from local sights include some exquisite gold pieces. The local history is interesting, while the Anglo-Saxon room contains some rare pieces. I rather rushed round but do allow more time.

Just brilliant ,home cooked food , ready to pick up during this lock down from a friendly face. Today is Sunday and beef was on the menu from the Pelican ! It was amazing , fresh veg locally sourced and the beef , wow , bow to the cow , so many slices of perfectly cook beef served with a home made gravy that could be a food group of its own. Masses of food , enough to have left overs as bubble and squeak the next morning (looking forward to that). It’s not the first time I have had food from this establishment and will definitely not be the last , great food , great value , great people
