Welcome

A traditional country pub just outside Melksham

Situated on the edge of the market town of Melksham, just off the A350 and surrounded by lush, green Wiltshire countryside, the Milk Churn, built in 2014 in the style of a Wiltshire farmhouse with attached barn, is the perfect example of a proper country pub at the heart of its local community.  

The Milk Churn’s hand-painted pictorial sign reflects the town’s dairy farming heritage on one side and on the other side also tells a story, as it was painted by 95-year-old ex-local farmer Victor Steel, after he won a competition at Dorset Arts Weeks.

Convenient for Chippenham, Trowbridge and Warminster, with a beautiful garden and outside children’s play area ideal for summer, as well as roaring log fires and oak beams inside, perfect for the shorter and colder winter months, the Milk Churn really is the perfect pub all year round.

Old Mout Cider

Old Mout was dreamed up 65 years ago by New Zealander Wanda, who, on a cycling trip to England, took a liking to the local scrumpy. On her return to Nelson, she decided to set up a cidery in her shed! 60 years later, cider pioneers Justin and Scottie, inspired by amazing island fruits, developed a range of award-winning flavours in New Zealand.

Check out our drinks page for our range of Old Mout Ciders.

 

 

Our Drinks

Forum Lager

Introducing Forum, the brand new lager from Hall & Woodhouse.

Forum is a 4.2% refreshing Helles style lager, with a delicate flavour from the Weihenstephan yeast and a subtle fruity lemon character from Hallertau Blanc and Huell Melon hops.

The name refers not only to Blandford Forum, the location of the H&W brewery where this new, exciting lager is brewed, but also to a meeting or gathering where ideas and views can be exchanged.  And where better to meet and put the world to rights than in a traditional British pub, where you can enjoy this refreshing drink with friends and family.

So what are you waiting for, make sure you try a pint next time you visit.
