The Spread Eagle, Stourton nr Warminster
This is a rather trendy boutique pub, right next to Stourhead, a world-famous 18th Century house and gardens, now owned by the National Trust. It almost seems to be in the grounds of the house, but that's not entirely accurate, as the village of Stourton butts almost up to the grounds. On the hand pumps there are decent beers including Butcombe's bitter and a local brew called Potter from Cheddar. The food's pretty good, if a little on the pricey side, though the local Keene's cheddar in the ploughman's was predictably tasty. The food in the National Trust cafe is a bit more reasonably priced, but that's not why you'd go here, is it? You can also stay in the pub in one of their five en-suite rooms with views over the gardens. It doesn't have much regular clientele, but this doesn't detract from the pub. If you're in the area, give it a go.
