Places to eat & drink in Bradford-on-Avon.

An important centre of the wool trade in the Middle Ages, this splendid town lies in a steep-sided hollow on the banks of the River Avon which is spanned by a magnificent 13th century, arched bridge. On the bridge is a domed building once used as a chapel for religious pilgrims.

Fifteenth century Westwood Manor is noted for its plasterwork, historic windows and topiary garden and a nearby 14th century tithe barn is one of the finest in Britain, measuring more than 160 feet.

Bradford's most remarkable building, however, is the tiny church of St Lawrence. Dating to the seventh century it was badly damaged by the Vikings but rescued by a local clergyman in the 19th century. Nearby Iford Manor has Italianate pools, statues, terraces and panoramic views.

We cannot give a full list of all available food outlets but below is a small selection of those available in Bradford-on-Avon or surrounding areas.

Visitors can enjoy the wonderful dining area with it's tapestries and set pewter plates, or sit next to the log fire in the village bar and chat about the hostelry's ghostly history over a drink or two.
