Looking to drink, dine or stay with us? Don't just take our word for it. Here are a few second opinions from satisfied guests of the Leo...
"We were driving from Cambridgeshire to Cornwall and decided to break the journey at the Prince Leopold. We had booked an evening meal in the restaurant but got stuck in horrific traffic to the point where it started to look like we might miss last orders for food. I phoned ahead and explained. When we arrived in the nick of time, we were shown straight through to our table, being told that we could 'worry about checking in later'! A couple of pints of lovely real ale and some fantastic food later (I think we managed to squish in three courses!) we were feeling a lot more human.
Our room was lovely, with plenty of original character and a really big bathroom. The bed was very comfortable and we slept really well. The next morning, we enjoyed a freshly prepared hearty breakfast and set off on the rest of our journey feeling fully recovered from the stresses of the day before.
The Prince Leopold is a great place. We'd love to come back for a longer stay so that we could explore the lovely surrounding countryside."

We took advantage of the two nights B & B for £100.00.The room was lovely and clean with a view over the fields and you could just about see the river.
Staff very welcoming with 6X and Butcombe on offer.They have a very interesting top shelf with lots of unusual drinks available. Wine list was good, bar very friendly with an open fire. There’s a lovely little snug tucked away round the corner with arm chairs that will swallow you up. As for food,we went for the onion soup ,steak (very good) and the Brill (beautifully cooked). There’s a good range of desserts to be had too. Service good, very attentive and courteous, eager to help.
Breakfast was possibly the best I’ve ever had…toast made from home made bread, Black pudding, great bacon and lovely chipolatas served on piping hot plates made for a brilliant start to the day.
Handy for Bath, this was a great find. Although close to the A36 ,you couldn’t hear it at all.The railway line passes nearby but you can barely hear it. We loved it and we will be back for sure."

"We retired to France a few years ago but have family who have recently moved to the Frome / Warminster area, so we will be visiting the area quite frequently. We stayed at The Prince Leopold, (a delightful Victorian house where that theme has been retained throughout ) during our first visit and thank goodness it had been recommended to us. We couldn’t have asked for more or better. A warm welcome, very clean and tidy rooms, a comfortable bed, excellent bar with good beers and a super bistro style restaurant with excellent fare. As in France, it is always an excellent recommendation to see a restaurant full of local people eating, you just have to join them. A really great B & B and we will most certainly be back."

"Found this gem by chance,we stopped for lunch on a lovely summers day and what a surprise a quintessential english scene,a river running thru at the bottom of the garden..river Wylye i was told by the very helpful waitress.The food was good,fishcakes,pork roll and chicken salad were served with a smile.Its a shame we dont live in driving distance to use the pub more frequently.Well doneto the staff for a very pleasant welcome."

"We live near Bath, and have been meaning to have lunch here for ages, so was glad when we finally had an excuse. Chef Andy Lee did us proud. Really good food, imaginatively presented, and the staff were very pleasant. 'The Leo', as the locals call it, seems to draw a lot of people from the Warminster area, but it's only about 10 minutes away from the A303, so would also be handy to break the journey from London to the South West. The dining-room is modern and comfortable, but try to choose a sunny day (remember those?) so you can be out in the charming little garden beside the River Wylye. You can almost see Mr Toad and Ratty messing about on the bank!"

"The Prince Leopold is a small inn in a rural setting not far from Salisbury and in striking distance of Bath which was the purpose of our visit. We stayed for two nights on a groupon deal. The room was rather disappointing, very small with a separate shower and toilet - no bathroom as there was no room!! However, after our initial disappointment we visited the newly refurbished restaurant - the choice here was fantastic, priced accordingly, but nevertheless an excellent dining experience on both our nights stay. The breakfast is cooked to order and of excellent quality. It is a peaceful location in a quiet hamlet, but well placed for touring the area. We would certainly recommend it."

"i stayed here with my daughter a few days ago. The service is outstanding - the girls behind the bar and at breakfast couldnt have been more helpful. The food is absolutely fabulous - fresh cooked, great ingredients and great presentation - i recommend the puddings if you have any space left after the main courses. The place itself is idyllic, a shallow river in the back of the Inn with swans and fish - my daughter loved it. The back garden with wooden tables and chairs and a glass of wine is as near to heaven as you are likely to get. Downstairs is rustic and really atmospheric. The bedrooms are small but immaculate and incredibly comfortable - with bottled water, biscuits, tea and coffee provided. I stay in places all over the world - this was great value and the customer service is of the highest standard."

"We had a great night and I felt that the staff felt nothing was too much trouble. Catering for 85+ is very difficult and you did it VERY well! Thank you so much for looking after all those who look after others, it really makes a difference.....Perfection....Amazingness, thank you very much!"

"We stayed overnight at the Prince Leo and would have liked to stay longer. This pretty pub, sitting on the banks of the Wylye River in Upton Lovell, was for us the sort of place that dreams are made of. Locals in the front bar, and a nicely restored building sitting on a country lane opposite green meadows. We had arranged a dinner for five on arrival and we were very impressed with the quality and choice of dishes on their menu. Particularly delicious was the pan fried calves liver, notwithstanding the looks we we getting from from the cows on the hill opposite."

"This B&B is located about 10 miles from Warminster (ideal if you want to visit Longleat Safari Park). It is set in a very quiet pretty spot with a lovely river running at the bottom of the garden, accommodation is very clean and comfortable and the restaurant is very good and popular with people in the surrounding area. Very warm welcome from staff. Thoroughly recommendable"

"Very comfortable stay, very friendly staff - would recommend. Many thanks."

"We stayed at this venue as part of a wedding party and left it to our friends to book us all together. We weren't spending much time there and so hadn't really researched it. What a surprise and delight though. Essentially it's a pub/restaurant and they have recently refurbished the rooms to let. It was very boutique with beautifully co-ordinated rooms. The only gripe was that the bathroom was very small but then it's an old building where en-suite bathrooms have been "made" in corners of rooms. Certainly didn't detract in any way. Breakfast was standard but very well cooked and served. A beautiful setting with friendly staff. Highly recommended."

"The food was a most pleasant surprise. Our evening meals were superb. Alex (girl) and Alex (boy) are both assets to the Prince Leopold Inn; we thoroughly enjoyed their service and their warm hospitality. We appreciate Lucy's special at breakfast; it was excellent. Wish the Western US was not so far away - we would like to return more often. This was a serendipitous find for us."

"Lovely village location. Not very impressive from the outside but delightful inside. The room was compact but comfy and clean. A large bathroom with shower and bath. The bar was light and airy and well stocked with a great selection of lagers, beers, spirits and wines. We ate in the restaurant overlooking the river. Service was excellent and as vegetarians we had a good selection of home made food. There was a super selection of fish and meat also on the menu. We sat in the snug after dinner and enjoyed another drink and shared a joke or two with the staff! We slept well and had a lovely cooked breakfast in the morning before leaving. would love to go back and would recommend to anyone."

"We were a party of 18!!! Age ranging from 7 months to 70 years!! As we were not local to the area we found the Prince Leopold Inn on Goggle. We looked at the Web site and was amazed at how nice it looked. We pre ordered from a set Sunday lunch meal. The food was excellent!!! Would recommend!!!"

"Polly, Alex and Lucy were very accommodating on our return from a fabulous wedding day in Sutton Veny, making us most welcome after an evening spent consuming copious amounts of food and alcohol! Even though they were clearly exhausted, they were waiting for us, washing glasses by hand and polishing to their normal (perfect) standard!"
Chris, Trevor and Amanda, 3 July 2011
"Soooo different from the previous 'Prince'! The room is lovely, the décor modern and inviting and the staff are welcoming. Best of all is the food - good quality and extensive menu. We will definitely return and hopefully for a longer period. We wish the new owners well and keep up the good work! Give the chef our best wishes to carry on the good work."

"A real gem of a country inn which is rare to find. A great welcome by the friendly staff, spotless room and outstanding food. The idyllic location is a real pleasure to find and the Prince Leopold deserves every success in the future."

“Chris and I had one of our most enjoyable meals last evening and wish you to let your team know how much their skills were appreciated. Given a fine evening in this beautiful setting was obviously a great start, but the particular skills of the chefs balanced this with outstanding results. Thank you all so much.”

"I heard of the Prince Leopold from a friend and duly visited. We were impressed with the layout and interior design and the general ambience of the Inn, the riverside gardens are a plus. We were made very welcome and enjoyed a fantastic lunch from a varied menu. We will recommend the Inn to our friends and we ourselves will definitely return! Well worth the 30 mile journey!"

"What a delight to find such a welcoming Inn after a long journey from the West Country. We were well-served and the food was excellent, and it was so nice to find that children are welcome and that your serving hours (for meals) are flexible. We will certainly return when we are back this way."

“Thank you for a lovely weekend when we recently stayed for our horse-riding weekend. On Saturday I rang to book our next trip...and I am hoping again to fill all rooms. We would like dinner both nights in the restaurant please - that worked out really well. All in all, as the organiser, I am very pleased that we made the change and came to stay with you. Looking forward to October!”

"Came with no expectations, just somewhere close to a friend who was having a 40th. What a lovely place. Great rooms, fantastic people and excellent food. We opted to stay another night and enjoy dinner. We would highly recommend The Leopold, a real find!"

"Having decided to take our daughter to Longleat I trawled the Internet for places to stay to avoid a day of travelling. i was very pleased that I managed to find this place. We booked a twin room for my mother who shared a room with our daughter, and a double for my husband and myself. The location was fab, a short drive from Salisbury ( great for a day out) and even closer to Longleat. The pub/ restaurant was beautifully refurbished, modern without losing the character. the garden backed onto a river, so great for my 7 year old to feed the fishes with supervision. Would be superb to sit out on a sunny day. We ate in the restaurant, just choosing from the pub menu, but the food was delicious and with a different twist to standard pub food. My Vegetarian burger was homemade with proper veggie chunks, and the other food looked equally as good. The rooms, although smallish, were clean and tidy, with comfortable beds. The breakfast certainly set us up for the day, without being over bearing. I would certainly be happy to stay again, giving myself more time to explore the little village of Upton Lovell and the surrounding area. A beautiful part of the the country, and a gem of a place to stay."

“I wanted to write a quick note to say thank you to you and all your staff for what was a lovely evening last Wednesday. The meal was superb and I know enjoyed by all, so please pass on our appreciation to the chef. It was a treat too to sit in your newly refurbished restaurant - a transformation from our last visit! It has, as everywhere else, been beautifully and tastefully done. Thank you too for allowing us all to view your B&B accommodation. You have done an amazing job with all of the rooms. We will try and not make it too long before our next visit.”

"Just up the road from Center Parcs, had lunch here whilst kids did a riding activity off site. Excellent food, value for money and lovely surroundings, a real find in the middle of nnowhere. Did not stay in the rooms but if the standards are as high as the public areas, definitely worth a visit for a long weekend in the country. Also if you fancy going offsite from Longleat then its only 7 mins drive. Well recommended."
