400 year old thatched roof coaching inn which inspired a scene in Dickens The Pickwick Papers.
"It was a comfortable-looking place. There was a strong cheerful light in the bar-window," begins Dickens's description of this handsome stone and thatch 16th-century inn on the Marlborough Downs. Its heyday was as a coaching inn between London and Bath, (hence the name), when waggoners would stop to freshen up and horses would get re-shoed at the inn's smithy. Dickens travelled this way in 1835 and featured it in The Bagman's Story in The Pickwick Papers. The open-plan bar retains great charm and character, with stone walls, old settles on flagstones, and a blazing log fire on winter days.

Sorry for my bad English!

Now this is something I could see myself doing in another time and place. A quiet little pub for friends and family to meet and enjoy each others company. Excellent image from a far different place then the world is seems now.

This place is named Wagons & Horses (www.waggonandhorsesbeckhampton…). The building looks a lot more warm and inviting in your photo than the photo on the web site.

I love these buildings.  The first time I visited England we went to a pub like this one and stayed in an old inn which also had a thatched roof!  I actually saw the thatcher making repairs! :D  I can see why Dickens liked this place--it looks pretty and cozy!

Yes, this is really a fun place if you want to take a break from driving from town to town without having the stress for a parking space. There is a small sense of seclusion .
Inside it is very beautiful , friendly, warm and cozy, with a crackling fireplace. :-) :heart:
