Three pubs in Wiltshire with rooms to stay in have been named some of the best in the UK.

In a list by Conde Nast Traveller, three Wiltshire pubs with rooms have been named as some of the best country pubs in the UK.

The Bell and Crown, Zeals



Located just off the A303, a convenient spot for a Sunday roast and a local ale or two after a stroll around the nearby and impressive gardens at Stourhead House.

Conde Nast Traveller said: "Originally renovated in 2019, The Bell and Crown did not just survive through the pandemic, it thrived.

"It's set in Zeals – a picturesque village in southwest Wiltshire, a short drive from trendy Frome and Bruton. Now, adding six upstairs rooms, they have turned a locals' favourite pub into a city dwellers’ weekend getaway, all while keeping the regulars constantly coming back."

On the ever-changing menu is classic pub fare with a twist – 'Nduja scotch eggs, a locally sourced rack of lamb with garlic mash and a sticky toffee pudding.

In the morning, a hearty traditional breakfast includes surprises like Negroni shots (the first one's on them) and pop tarts.

Address: The Bell and Crown, New Road, Zeals, BA12 6NJ, United Kingdom
Price: Double rooms from £100

The Bradley Hare, Maiden Bradley


Described by Conde Nast Traveller as "Wiltshire's smartest new countryside inn", the pub is set in the tiny village of Maiden Bradley, part of the historical Duke of Somerset’s estate, where waves of barley and manicured tree tunnels shape the landscape beyond.

Visitors can enjoy exceptional food and unwind in elegantly appointed rooms characterised by high ceilings, bay windows, and 19th Century furnishings.

Vegetables are grown on the nearby community allotment and the kitchen is aiming towards zero-waste with a seasonal menu of dishes such as whipped smoked mackerel with rainbow beetroot and a sirloin sandwich with Isle of Wight tomatoes.

Address: The Bradley Hare, Church Street, Maiden Bradley BA12 7HW
Price: Double rooms from £115

The Lamb at Hindon, Hindon


Described as "a 12th Century pub and country inn nestled in the beautiful village of Hindon in the West Wiltshire Downs with Stonehenge as it's neighbour".

Scottish touches are found everywhere, from the 100 types of whisky behind the bar to the haggis in the cooked breakfast and tartan carpet on the creaking, sloping floors in the corridor.

The 19 Highland-fling-styled bedrooms have names such as Glenrothes and Bruichladdich. with heavy walnut furniture, walk-in cupboards for wardrobes and Neal's Yard products in the bathroom.

Most rooms are above the pub, but some are in the adjoining old stables.

Dining at The Lamb features the "best from British land and sea". Their classic menu has a twist of elegance and innovation, paired with fine wine and real ales.

Address: The Lamb at Hindon, Wiltshire, England
Price: Double rooms from £99
