Situated in the picturesque village of Whiteparish on the edge of the New The Kings Head, Whiteparish was re-opened in 2017 having been closed for almost 5 years.
It is a 16th Century old coaching house, which has been lovingly restored and renovated.
The new owners have invested a significant amount of capital in renovation, including the conversion of a disused derelict barn into luxury accommodation.
We are truly independent, it is a family owned and operated business, which means we can chose the best selection of beers, wines, ales, craft ales and spirits befitting of a gastro pub.
We are customer focused, and aim to give the customer the best food & service with value for money, and aim to deliver the highest quality food and excellent service, but also one that offers a very warm welcome to those who also want to just stop by for a drink or a cup of coffee. For the local community we offer events that keep the community spirit alive, and make a place where people want to come, meet, eat, and even sleep.
We offer diners the opportunity to stay over, or conversely visitors who want so stay in the area the opportunity to enjoy the best food available.
Our Chef Patron is Roux Scholar and Great British Chef, Matthew Tomkinson. Matt joined us in March 2019, opening his signature restaurant Betony by Matt Tomkinson shortly thereafter, a restaurant offering the best quality local food with excellent service in a cosy relaxed, yet intimate environment.
We recently received 2 AA rosette recognition for this restaurant,
We feature in the 2020 edition of the Good Food Guide.
Also, we were featured in The Times Weekend supplement as one of the 40 best summer pubs in the UK!
The 8 luxury en-suite bedrooms have been carefully designed, with thought given to comfort, but are quietly luxurious. They all are individual, being named after local villages in Wiltshire.
All our rooms feature paintings by a local artist, who was commissioned to paint local landscape scenes. These paintings are one off bespoke, and can be purchased by public should they wish.
Our bedrooms opened in May and we have already been awarded 4* standard the AA.
