Fodor's Review

A 17th-century thatched-roof building with foundations made from sarsen stones, this traditional inn and pub is a two-minute drive from the Avebury stone circle (the beer garden has views of Silbury Hill). Dickens mentioned the building in the Pickwick Papers. Excellent lunches and dinners are served beside a fire; homemade dishes include duck leg in a port, blackberry, and thyme sauce; wild boar, with apple and sage sausages; and a butternut squash, sage, and blue cheese risotto. In high season it's something of a tourist hub.
