A former dairy farm, The Willy Wicket serves quintessentially British food from an extensive menu, and enjoys a grassy beer garden framed by the pub’s red-brick exterior. Based in Bristol, the dining room features roaring open fires, black oak beam ceilings and squashy leather sofas.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Willy Wicket menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies designed by celebrity chef James Martin offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while the ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

Surrounded by rolling countryside, The Willy Wicket in Downend boasts many rambling walks and idyllic beauty spots, while The Kendleshire Golf Club is just a 4-minute drive away.

    We dine at the Willy Wicket on a regular basis. This time it fell short of its usual standards. Chicken pie - plenty of pastry but very little filling. Turkey dinner - 2 very small pieces of Turkey, 8 hard roast potatoes and a very dry Yorkshire pudding. Two of our party had blackberry & Apple crumble, the colour was there but where were the Blackberries. We note that they were advertising for a chef so put the disappointing meal down to that. We will give it a month or two before we revisit. Staff as usual excellent and venue very clean and pleasant.
