Always consistently good food here, although the menu could be changed more often. Cosy in the bar by the fireplace in the winter. Well worth the twisty turning roads to get here!

Ate here after a country walk but we were glad we had changed our muddy boots in the car as it has a very modernised restaurant/lounge type atmosphere albeit with 'wooden' flooring. All traces of a country pub have long since vanished apart maybe from...More

Amazing fresh, locally sourced food. A wonderful choice of good food, with generous portions. Wine list varied and reasonably priced. Breakfast was equally as good.

The Crown & Garter's newly refurbished restaurant is the place to enjoy good British cooking. The largest part of the refurbishment costs was the amount spent on the kitchen, so we hope that the investment will be reflected in the food that comes to your table through it's doors. But of course, the kitchen isn't only about new equipment and having lots of space, primarily it is about people who work in the kitchen and we have spent a great deal of time and effort finding a superb staff to cook for you.

The team is led by Matthew Ambrose our Executive Chef. A local man from Marlborough, who trained at Claridges, where he came third in the British Culinary Federation Young Chef of the Year in 2011. In 2013 he achieved the highest marks for kitchen and the title of Royal Academy of Culinary Arts Young Chef of the Year 2013. He is a very talented young chef whose meals will definitely excite your palate.
