The Milk Churn

The Milk Churn

A traditional Wiltshire country pub on the outskirts of Melksham

A recreation of a Wiltshire farmhouse and conveniently located on the edge of the market town of Melksham (just off the A350) the Milk Churn celebrates the long association of the area with dairy farming and pasture. With a beer garden, broad terraces and a children’s play area, it’s the ideal place to spend long summer days, and watch the world go by. In the colder winter months its roaring log fires and rustic oak beams make it perfect for cosying up. This is a pub-restaurant as much at home serving breakfast to guests of the adjacent Melksham Travelodge, a meal or coffee to those pondering a purchase of a Jaguar from Dick Lovatt next door, or an early-evening drink by folk from one of the nearby businesses. It’s the perfect example of a proper country pub at the heart of its local community – fulfilling many different needs.
