Arrived here after much debate and dithering about where we wanted to eat and decided on Silks on the Downs because it has always delivered exceptional food on previous occasions, although we hadn't been here for at least 18 months. What can I say? The...More

We have visited the Silks previously when visiting family nearby. Following our previous visits we would have recommended it to friends, good atmosphere and food. However, on our last visit for Saturday lunch with family we noted that standards are slipping. Similar menu to my...More

Restaurant clean, staff friendly. Really enjoyed ham terrine and roast beef. The posset we ordered for dessert was very liquid but this was swapped for a chocolate brownie and an excellent cheese board . Will definitely be back. Thanks

We went back to Silks for the first time in 2 years (not sure where that time went?!). Was slightly disappointed mainly because the menu was almost entirely the same and the service wasn't great. They are still just waving you over to your table...More

Hi There are a couple of tables on the patio where they serve food. The garden area is through the car park where they have a few tables but they tend to be for drinks. If you want food outside, make sure you ask when you... More

Silks On The Downs is best described as a friendly & homely ' Gastro Pub '. Our menus change regularly and we source locally from the fantastic produce available around us. We are located in Ogbourne St Andrew, one mile outside the beautiful market town of Marlborough. Adorning our walls are framed silks of leading racehorse owners as worn by the jockeys, reflecting Wiltshire's rich racing heritage, as well as giving the pub its name. We are open daily for lunch and dinner (closed on a Sunday evening).
