The Horse Guards restaurant and pub in Brokenborough near Malmesbury is what English country pubs are all about. Hidden down a tranquil country lane, The Horse Guards is a 17th century, Cotswold stone charmer with exposed stone walls, ancient beams, crackling fires and a sunny garden. Arthur and Janette, the friendly proprietors, are passionate about continuing the historical pub’s legacy, offering warm welcomes and traditional pub hospitality. Beers here are award-winning handcrafted local real ales though luckily the wine list features first rate international wines. As with the beer, food here is all sourced within a 25 mile radius of the pub, and the menu features a judicious mix of snacks (available at lunchtime); pub classics like steak and kidney pudding or ham and eggs; and a selection of more sophisticated mains like pheasant with smoked bacon and juniper and red wine gravy, or fish ragout with tagliatelle. Sunday lunch is a big draw card here, too,with a choice of two roast.
