Red Lion Freehouse & Troutbeck Guest House

Pewsey, Wiltshire

Super rooms with rural views, lovely staff and a Michelin star... pigs in the pen, swings in the yards and caramel poached apples to die for


5 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


Unless you found yourself lost on Salisbury Plain, chances are you wouldn’t stumble upon the Red Lion. You’d be missing much: this smart thatched village inn is a local serving ale from Wiltshire microbreweries, a restaurant drawing food lovers from far and wide, and, since December 2012, a glorious place to stay, with the addition of ultra cosy rooms in a spruced up property (Troutbeck) just down the lane. Having worked under Thomas Keller at the breathtaking Per Se restaurant in New York, owner-chefs Guy and Brittany Manning apply cutting-edge cookery techniques to simple rustic dishes and the results are very special. The Michelin-starred menu offers the likes of chicken liver pâté with madeira jelly, braised ox cheek with mash, bacon, and red wine, and caramel poached apples with candied walnuts and sage ice cream. Indulge yourself and then retire to one of the five very individual rooms; all have luxury Somnus beds, the finest cotton and down, Bang & Olufsen flatscreens, fluffy bathrobes and organic smellies in natural stone bathrooms, and a private deck with serene rural views across the Avon chalk stream. Bliss.
