We have tried to create the perfect 21st century pub…with due reference to the Leo’s history and that of Upton Lovell.
The bar-room is panelled - as it might have been when built - and hung with pictures and artefacts relating to its century and a half at the heart of the village. The bar itself has been designed and built by local craftsman Matthew Burt. Matthew creates all things in wood, and has constructed a tailor-made three sided bar, topped by swathes of elm - a tree that once saturated the Wylye Valley and this part of Wiltshire. All in all, a room both to serve as the traditional heart of the village public bar, and to provide a welcoming experience to first time visitors.
To the right of the front door lies a particular gem. A Victorian Snug, complete with log fire and cameos of village history along with sumptuous sofas and today's newspapers.
Beyond this lies what the Victorians might have called the parlour…a dining room with tables and chairs, either for informal eating or for a party of drinkers simply to take the weight off their feet.
And finally what gives the Prince Leopold its unique charm - the terraced riverside garden, looking across the shallow babbling River Wylye to the old water meadows beyond. The perfect setting for summer salad, an autumn Ploughman’s, or just a peaceful pint in the Wiltshire countryside.
