A Wiltshire pub has been named one of the best gastropubs in the UK.

The Methuen Arms on Corsham High Street, managed by Butcombe Pubs & Inns, was ranked number 86 in a list of the top 100 venues in the country.

This list, compiled by Estrella Damm, has run since 2009 and aims to be the go-to source for the best dining pubs.

It collected votes from over 100 key hospitality industry professionals from across the UK.

The Methuen Arms’ general manger James Vincent believes this recognition is a testament to the work of his staff.

“This achievement inspires us to keep pushing the boundaries of beautiful pub food and providing a memorable dining experience for our guests.”

Head chef Zac Henderson said being named on the “hugely respected” list was an “awesome achievement” for him and his team.

He added: “Stripped back, simple food full of flavour is what we are all about and I’m super excited to build on this success and to see what the future holds here at The Methuen Arms.”
