The Poplars – Wingfield

The Poplars has been a Pub since the early 1950s. Prior to that it was an off licence and village shop. The Pub building is about 250 years old and was originally a farmhouse.

The Populars, Wingfield The Pub is full of old English charm and boasts a wonderful menu; this attracts people from far afield as well as serving a very enthusiastic local trade. Unlike some Pubs, the two trades seem to co-exist quite happily, a fact probably much due to the Landlord and Landlady, Mick and Sue Marshall.

What distinguishes ‘the Pops’ from so many similar Pubs is that it has its own cricket ground. The Pub is always busy but especially so during the cricket season when supporters and players gather in the bar and lounge to celebrate their victories and mourn their losses! However, the choice of real ale from Wiltshire brewers Wadworths plus other beers and lagers from around Europe, soon help to ease the pain of defeat.

The Poplars is situated in the village of Wingfield, several miles west of Trowbridge just to the south of the A366 on the B3109. Other attractions in the near vicinity are a number of beautiful country walks; Farleigh Castle (just over the county border in Somerset) and a golf driving range. The historic town of Bradford-on-Avon lies some three miles to the north.
