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.

Upstairs room very pleasant but table seating rather cramped and the quite high overall noise level in the room we found difficult to cope with hence only 4 stars for atmosphere.

It is useful to be able to pay the bill per person,-thank you.Also your hose outside the back door is good for washing off muddy boots.As the Park and Ride is only 30 minutes away (along the Wansdyke) we can get back to Bradford-on- Avon with ease. We enjoyed our meal,- thank you again. Neil Andrews.

I can’t speak highly enough of the help and thoughtfulness in accommodating our large group booking for Sunday lunch. Everything was perfect and we had a lovely time. All 3 courses of food were extremely nice, including the deserts ; a sign of good food at a pub. Thank you. Heather Ash.

The dining room became quite noisy when a large group of 8-9 were seated next to our table.
