Description: The Smoking Dog - a traditional Butcombe pub in the heart of the Cotswolds. Serving real ales and delicious freshly home-made food.
Reviewed 19 May 2018

I have been a local in the dog since I turned 18 two years ago and have always loved the pub. It has improved even more since Butcombe took it over last autumn. During the day & evening the pub has a lovely family environment, then at night turns in a buzzing bar with a great mix of people all ages! I'm not a fan of bars aimed at just older people or just younger people - the smoking dog certainly isn't either which I really like. Great menu with traditional pub favourites and a good selection of specials. Have eaten in the pub a few times and service has always been great. Staff are always very nice. Beautiful garden with lots of seating. One of the very few pubs in Malmesbury which has a garden & is dog friendly. Would highly recommend to locals or to visitors to the town!

Visited this place for a few drinks in the bank holiday sun! The staff were friendly and the drinks nice - worth a visit!

We went for lunch today with my family (3 little children plus baby) and friends. The staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. The food was wonderful and amazingly large portions of meat with the Sunday roasts. The children's food was fresh rather than fried or frozen which made a refreshing change. The service was relaxed but to us that was perfect. We were able to take our time and never felt rushed to finish.
Highly recommend.

We had a lovely family meal at The Smoking Dog on Sunday 15th.The Sunday roast and burger were excellent, the whole meal very reasonably priced. The staff were both attentive and professional. Top stuff all round.
