Residing on the edge of the Cotswold, The Horse and Groom in Charlton, Malmesbury, has officially re-opened its doors under the expert stewardship of Marco Pierre White. This picture-perfect traditional country pub with five en-suite rooms has undergone an intensive “Marco Makeover”, with every square inch (from structural changes, flooring, furniture, lighting and furnishings to textures, colours, sculptures, pictures and photographs) carefully collected and displayed by Marco to make the most of the pub’s original features and to create a variety of eating and drinking areas to suit every occasion.
The Horse & Groom Inn, Charlton, is one of those rare Wiltshire pubs where there is truly sensational food, real ales and stylish accommodation all set in glorious surroundings on the edge of the Cotswolds.
Fronted by a tree-sheltered lawn and surrounded by its own paddock, this 16th Century property’s interior is entirely in keeping with the grade II listed building where none of the charm or Country Inn feel has been compromised.
The cosy Charlton Bar with its original flagstone floors and open log fire is warm and welcoming, serving real ales and outstanding food. The restaurant provides a relaxed and charming space to sample our award-winning menus, whilst our gardens offer the perfect place for al fresco dining in the summer.
They have five spacious and stylish bedrooms, each completely unique and with their own large and airy bathroom, complete with roll-top bath.
They pride themselves on friendly, yet professional style and relaxed and informal surroundings and hope to welcome you to The Horse & Groom Inn very soon.
