Housed in a magnificent Victorian manor dating back to 1859, the King John Inn Tollard Royal is a gourmet gastropub boasting an AA Rosette. Serving a choice selection of fine British cuisine, the restaurant features both a cosy interior dining area and a bucolic terraced garden. The King John Inn is part of The Good Pub Guide's Pub Group of The Year 2016

Whether it’s slow-braised red Devon beef pie with vegetables, or twice-baked Westcombe chedder cheese soufflé, the King John Inn menu offers inspired variations on classic regional favourites. Enjoy the eclectic range of organic and biodynamic wines, and divine desserts like Earl Grey tea panna cotta with chocolate and hazelnut biscotti that make for a delectable post-dinner treat.

The historic façade of the King John Inn in Wiltshire is complemented by its beautifully refurbished interior. The rustic décor includes a warming open hearth and a wonderful handmade bar made of solid oak.

Home to a private function room and Victorian garden, the King John Inn near Salisbury is just a 5-minute drive from the scenic Rushmore Park.

    Really nice menu and meal. Very dissatisfied with the noise in the pub....a party of approx 20 drunk men turned up who talked very loudly. In the end we couldn't wait to leave, but food was really great and service was pretty quick for a busy Good Friday there. I didn't like paying £3+ for bottle of coke though!

    Easy booking, a delicious lunch and the right balance of service, friendly, professional. I've known the King John for years and this is the best it's ever been. Everyone of the eight of us enjoyed our choice of food.

    The food, service and atmosphere was excellent as always which is why we return as regularly as possible.
    The crab starter was the best crab I've had in years and the steak superb.
    Only criticism we needed a torch to read the menu maybe even a lit candle on the table would have helped!!!

    Everything we'd been promised by Angie and her equestrian team. Pheasant and apple donuts particularly lovely and staff delightful. Going back soon!
