As much as I love the hustle and bustle of the nightlife around different cities, I have to have those nights where I chill with a few friends in front of the fire, with a glass of wine in hand. If you ever wander through the Wiltshire countryside, then I have found the perfect little spot for just that!
Found right in the centre of a little village called Bulkington, The Well is a traditional Wiltshire pub that screams community and village life. Originally called The Tipsy Toad, the owners Sam and Tim have really transformed the place and brought back a country pub to a small village.
And did I mention that the food is to die for!
If you fancy going for an evening, then chill by the log fire with a beer or wine in hand. It’s relaxing, and I could have easily put my feet up on the sofa and had a nap. The locals are usually in there having a pint of local cider (said in a farmer accent!) and it brings a sense of community and warmth there. A group of friends are always welcome, so don’t worry that you may be the youngest amongst the OAP’s because it caters for everyone.
The food is, simply, fantastic. Pub grub with a mix of specials fill the menu, whilst each piece of meat is sourced locally and the desserts are home made. It is literally home from home. If you do fancy eating there, prices range from £8.95 for the traditional scampi and chips, to £19.50 for a 16oz T Bone steak, whilst they also offer a sunday lunch. Sod the diet and have the pork, you wont regret it.
If you are a Wiltshire Country Bumpkin looking for a new watering hole, or a drive-through visitor fancying a spot of lunch, then I really do suggest trying out here. It has become one of my regular pubs now and it is worth that extra bit of petrol to get to.
