Extensively refurbished early 2012 and situated on Britain’s widest high street, The Castle & Ball has had a fascinating past dating back to the 15th century, with some of the original oak timbers pre-dating the Spanish Armada. The building’s age accounts for some individual features including the split level brasserie-style restaurant. The hotel’s walled Beer Garden at the rear provides a relaxing setting for those looking to enjoy a drink and a meal alfresco-style.
From J15 on the M4 take the A346. If travelling from Chippenham take the A4 or, from Amesbury, the A345.
The 35 well appointed bedrooms are all comfortably furnished and individual in design, including a number of grand feature rooms, and reflect the historic nature of the hotel. All the rooms have colour TV and tea & coffee making facilities. Free Wifi.
The Brasserie/Restaurant area which we can arrange for private dining, for a party up to 60 people.
Step off the high street and sink into our comfy sofas in our traditional beamed bar area. Here you can enjoy light bites, tasty meals and a selection of traditional ales from our imaginative menu. If the weather permits, you can dine on our terrace, next to the bustling high street, or in our walled beer garden at the rear of the hotel. During the winter months we have a roaring open fire to add to the cosy and relaxed atmosphere.
The attractive Brasserie Restaurant with wooden floors, offers an extensive, seasonal menu with a wide selection of modern and traditional dishes and daily "specials" to suit everyone complemented with specially selected fine wines and speciality coffees.
