  • The Harrow at Little Bedwyn

    The Harrow at Little Bedwyn opened in December 1998 following a chance remark from friends which led Sue and Roger Jones to view a sad and empty pub in Little Bedwyn.  Within two months, they had sold up in London, made swift repairs and The Harrow was open for business. In 2006, the restaurant was awarded a Michelin star, an award it has kept every year to 2018. Sue and Roger’s original vision for The Harrow has been key to their remarkable journey:  fresh, honest food with authentic ingredients, all served beautifully, combined with a warm, genuine welcome and professional yet discrete service. For every dish, there are recommended wines. Sue has her own favourite combinations. “ We currently have a lovely Sancerre that grows on flint giving it a very mineral character, it matches beautifully the acidity of the Ceviche. The two become one, almost like soul mates.” The Harrow offers a range of tasting menus all with fresh ingredients and the same attention to detail. The Lunch Menu is 5 courses for £40, the 6 course Tasting Menu is £50 and there is an 8 course Gourmet Menu for £75. All menus come with an optional range of matched wines to complement the food perfectly....»

  • The Three Tuns, Great Bedwyn

    The death knell had sounded for Great Bedwyn’s village pub when James and Ashley Wilsey saved it from closure. After years of cooking in London and USA James was keen to have his own pub; and a long 3 year hunt brought them to The Three Tuns. 6 months after closing, the doors re-opened in September 2012. “We put our heart and soul into giving it new life and respecting its heritage as a village pub. It’s important it feels like home and has high quality food while being affordable.” Customers have responded well to the relaxed atmosphere and food is homemade and full of flavour. The menu and wine list are deliberately tight with an emphasis on local sourcing. There’s an a la carte for more sophisticated dishes and a bar menu – the sea bream with Mexican twist is an explosion of flavours, you can always get a good burger and their pulled pork with jalapeno coleslaw is pretty spectacular. And with their eldest being born a month after opening it’s child-friendly, with a kids menu, and they always welcome furry friends. There are BBQs and Jazz in the garden in summer and James has recently launched his catering arm Full Flavour Behaviour. ...»

  • The George and Dragon

    After a long career at Soho House, Chippy Day craved a better life in the country so bought the George and Dragon in Rowde in 2004. A 14th Century building, with many original features, it was the perfect place to create a relaxed pub with great service and understated touches. ‘Rowde is a lovely village - ever since we opened we’ve been welcomed and supported by the locals. Our leafy walled garden is a great venue for summer bbqs and bonfire nights and we often hold quiz nights or wine and cheese evenings.’ Seafood is their specialty with daily deliveries from Cornwall. Signature dishes include Cornish lobster with garlic butter and oysters, but there’s plenty on the a la carte menu - their cheese soufflé being particularly popular. The bar is well stocked with an ever changing selection of local craft beers, and their bespoke catering service and party room means they can hold parties or weddings at the pub or come to you. Their 3 bedrooms are especially welcoming – rustic luxury with higgledy piggledly floors, exposed oak beams and modern comforts, with breakfast served in the pub in front of the old fireplace. Dogs are welcome for a drink or to stay and Caen Hill Locks is in walking distance. Hot water bottles hang off a door for punters to take to keep warm outside, while B&B guests can choose from a selection of DVDs. This place is a gem. ...»

  • JW Fine Foods

    When James Hayward was praised for the smoked salmon he’d made for a wedding, he decided to turn it into a business. As a former chef in Michelin star restaurants, and a career in event catering and food styling, it fits perfectly with his passion for food. ‘I want to be locally based so I opened my informal tasting shop in Woodborough In December 2017. As well as my cured and smoked salmon I stock some of my favourite foods and aim to create a Southern European vibe where people can walk in, sit on the side and try a few things’. Customers can enjoy smoked salmon on crispbread with ricotta cheese and salted capers, charcuterie, fish or cheese platters accompanied with a glass of bubbly, wine or sherry. Take home smoked salmon, gravlax, pâté and various hams, salamis and condiments. ‘I buy fish fresh from Scotland and make two gravlax - beetroot and liquorice salmon with a sashimi like texture and gin infused salmon cured in a juniper liqueur with lime. Our Smoked salmon is cured, salted and cold smoked on oak and hung for 3 days minimum. I also make smoked salmon pâté and chicken liver parfait paired with our homemade crostini.’ Pop in any day of the week, for a tasting evening or on Sunday for their hot specialty. It’s perfect for meeting up with a friend for a light bite of something delicious. ...»

  • Worsley Training

    A former teacher Louise Worsley mastered first aid in her years as an expedition leader of school and adult groups in far flung places. She’s seen a lot, from twisted knees in horse falls to helping someone with typhoid in the jungle. ‘I hung up my rucksack when I met my now husband and realized I needed to find a career closer to home. So, I got qualified as a first aid trainer and set-up Worsley Training in 2006. We’ve recently moved to Upavon in Wiltshire and I’m keen to teach basic First Aid to as many people as possible’. Her earlier work focused mainly on outdoor first aid, but since having children Louise has qualified to teach Paediatric courses. She’s taught mums and children and loves to go into schools to help and teach teachers. Working with small business owners also gives her great enjoyment. ‘Since moving to Wiltshire I’ve noticed there are defibrillators in most of the villages, but do people know how to use them? Everyone should know Emergency first aid especially as ambulances can take a while to get to you.’ Louise’s teaching background means her sessions are practical, memorable and engaging. Her years as an expedition leader showed her how to think on her feet. She wants to help people have the confidence to step forward – if someone collapsed on the street near you what would you do? . ...»
