The Waggon and Horses, Beckhampton


The chefs have been working hard at putting together our new menu. There will be lots of lovely dishes ideal for 

the spring days ahead, fingers crossed!The Waggon & Horses, although wonderfully cosy inside has a fantastic garden overlooking Silbury hill and the rolling landscape surrounding it.

We also have a fantastic Gluten free menu which we are accredited by the coeliac society and you can download our SAMPLE  Gluten Free Sample MenuWe also offer a gluten free bottled beer to compliment your beer 6x gold please ask at the bar on your visit. 

Although we try to cater for everyone we do struggle with large parties, so although very welcome we do suggest booking.  If you have any particular dietry needs or wish for something in particular for a special occassion then with a couple of days notice we will do all we can to provide. Please also note that we try to use fresh local produce whenever possible and sometimes this may mean that we change our menu slightly depending on what produce is avaliable.

Mark and Harriet and the team look forward to welcoming you.

It's hard to miss this old gem of a pub on the main A4 as you drive between Devizes and Marlborough. Famous as the inspiration for a scene in Dickens' The Pickwick Papers, this four hundred year old inn represents what an English pub should look like.

The Waggon and Horses is a quintessential and traditional thatched pub, built in 1669 with the foundation stones made of sarsen stone, which the locals believe to be from the Avebury stones.

Legend has it that the Waggon and Horses has two resident ghosts one of which is believed to be that of a previously landlady, in traditional white attire people have claimed to see her standing on the drinkers side of the bar although she is very harmless, the other is a Victorian Gent who stands at the fireplace, smoking a pipe with a little dog asleep beside him, people also claim that they have smelt the aroma of a pipe burning!

The Waggon and Horses is in ideal location nestled between Marlborough and Devizes it is a fantastic place to meet, eat and drink. Our extensive menu is complimented by our ever changing daily specials, all of which is locally sourced as far as possible with traditional and contemporary dishes alike. We serve many different wine from different countries to enjoy, on its own or to compliment any meal, and for those special occasions we offer a fantastic Champagne. Please ask for recommendations.

Just one hundred meters from the roundabout at the junction with the A361 between Avebury and Devizes, by road the Waggon and Horses is only six miles from Marlborough or Devizes. There is ample parking both behind the pub and on the opposite side of the A4.
