Having eaten at the Silver Plough for many years and had many excellent meals our recent visit however was very disappointing.

Our party choose either meat lasagne or vegetarian lasagne for our skittles evening. The meat lasagne was very good and so would have been the vegetarian lasagne if it had not been served cold. We asked the waitress to take it away to heat it properly, it was brought back a few minutes later only slightly warm, (it really needed at least half an hour in the oven).

So it rather spoilt the evening, especially as some of our family had travelled from the US and Canada.

Imaginative rural menu with exceptionally good ingredients, great cooking and superb service. And an excellent choice of real ales too! One of the best rural pub experiences you'll find anywhere. MId week is best.

My faith in pubs in the Wiltshire countryside has been restored. Pitton is a lovely village with great walks around it and this pub with its traditional skittle alley was a great place to finish. Helped by some great food and beer and lovely staff.

Atmosphere was warm and welcoming, the staff friendly. Our starters of chicken liver parfait and mussels in cream and white wine were light and tasty. However, the main courses were far too big and heavy. My partner's pork belly on a bed of chorizo and chickpeas would have fed a family of four for a week; at least our server offered to pack it up so that we could take it home. My fish and chips with mushy peas, was a beautiful lump of deep fried hake, again far too large a portion, wedges and crushed petit pois. NB: these are NOT mushy peas. The desserts were unremarkable.
A good selection of beers was available.

We went here twice here in August for lunch. Both times my partner had the fish cakes and I had the pork belly and then the crayfish salad. All were excellent and the service was friendly and efficient. A cut above the average pub grub. It has recently changed hands so we hope the quality will be maintained. It is also a gorgeous old pub and feels homely.
