About The Packhorse

In May 2016 the community of South Stoke was presented with the opportunity to bring The Packhorse pub back under local ownership. The response to the scheme was overwhelming, and in March 2018, this C17th building – the sole pub in the village of South Stoke re-opened as a freehouse, with all its original character intact.
We serve beautiful fresh food from a state of the art kitchen. Our team of chefs are highly skilled with a great pedigree in cooking. Our menu is made up of great British classic dishes and some with more modern twists, seasonality and simplicity is the theme, we are perfect for lunch, dinner and special occasions.
Our fully landscaped garden shows off some stunning views of this quite wonderful countryside, truly breathtaking.

Parking at the pub and in the village is quite limited but there is a lovely short walk into the village from the main Midford road.
We are dog friendly in the garden, and the ground floor only, so please advise when booking if you're bringing the extra member of the family.

If you have any trouble booking please feel free to give us a call and we'll do what we can to help.

The food was as lovely as ever despite the limited menu. We appreciated being able to order 'double starters', the roasted salmon was excellent. Looking forward to eating inside at The Packhorse soon.

Great festival vibe in the garden thanks to live music which really made our Sunday fish and chips in the sun very special 😀

Taking social distancing seriously but still maintaining a friendly environment. Restricted menu still covers most bases and the (local) beers and ciders are great. Lovely setting too.

Amazing food and service. Was blown away by the calamari and scotch egg, burgers were decent. Wish we had room for dessert!

Lunch in the garden at the Packhorse again, and excellent again (and luckily nice weather). There was a small delay with the food (honestly I probably wouldn't have even noticed) - they informed us, apologised and gave us a free drink each. Food was good; the scotch egg is brilliant, and the sea bass was also very good. And the Honeys Cider is great. Can't recommend them enough - but maybe I shouldn't so otherwise there may not be enough room for us to go again :-)

Met with a friend for our first al fresco lunch this year. Service was very friendly, food tasty and well prepared and the atmosphere relaxed and unhurried. Thank you and hope to return soon.

PERFECT OUTING x 2 I couldn’t rate The Packhorse highly enough. Excellent all round, delicious food and very well priced, ate here Friday and Monday after one of their walk suggestions. A perfect way to venture out after lockdown, it’s one of Baths hidden gems.

We had a fantastic Sunday roast at The Packhorse. Met with a very warm welcome, the service throughout was fantastic - friendly, attentive, genuine - not always the case when eating out at pubs and restaurants. The garden was beautifully presented and all the tables nicely spaced out. They were also taking covid secure measures seriously, but not in a way that affected the experience. The food was fantastic and plentiful. We will be back!
