The Castle Inn

Bradford-on-Avon, Wiltshire

Delicious pub classics in planked rooms, fat sofas, log fires, lovely staff, lazy breakfasts and stylish, characterful bedrooms upstairs


4 rooms


Rooms sleep 2 – 4


On top of the hill that dips down to the mellow heart of Bradford-on-Avon, this heart-warming renovation of a neglected Bath stone inn is the work of Flatcappers, who, in their first foray into the world of real pubs, struck gold. Enter a warren of planked rooms – one large, three small – in muted greys, reds and greens, lovingly and imaginatively restored. Expect solid stone walls and little log fires, recycled chairs and long farmhouse tables, a leather sofa to sink into, books on the shelves, prints on the walls and a youthful vibe. Six ales from local breweries dominate the bar as locals pop in for a pint and the papers, and muted jazz plays. An Anglo-Saxon take on tapas stands alongside British pub classics, the specials are special (rabbit ragoût with handmade pappardelle) and our Sunday sirloin with Yorkshire pud was heaven. Above, four equally characterful bedrooms have modish wallpapers and stylish hues, wonky door frames and period fireplaces, stunning walk-in bathrooms and wide-reaching views of the church, or the White Horse on the Wiltshire hills. And breakfast lasts until 12!
