Early evening visit, at a time when it was busy and should have had more than two bar staff on duty. Pleasant surroundings though.

The pub is found in Melksham, Wiltshire, SN12 6LL.

Not your typical Wetherspoon pub, this having served the people of Melksham since long before its 2012 acquisition by the Pub Co. Stone-built frontage with extensive bars behind. Beer garden to side.

We have visited this pub once, seen 8 different beers and tried 3 of them.
