Popped in here while in Marlborough for a brief time. Arkells house with 3B and Wiltshire Gold on. I chose the Wiltshire Gold but was not impressed with it at all.

Attractive, imposing corner building. An Arkells house with three of theirs on, my Wiltshire Gold was warm and rather poor all-round. Two levels within; the upper (a weirdly large and open-plan room but with few tables) had just been decorated by someone who likes loud things (silver fern wallpaper and an epileptic striped carpet). The bar area further down was a bit more traditional. All furnishings were wobbly, “an earthquake simulator” quipped a companion who almost fell off his chair. Overall, pretty poor – I think Arkells really need to get a grip on some parts of their estate, having been let down by a few of their pubs in recent months.

The Bear is at the very top of the high street.
I was really looking forward to going into this pub as it is the only Arkells tied house in Marlborough the pub looked quite nice from the outside i went in the front door and this area was'nt being used so i had to go down the steps to get to the other bar this was full with pushchairs kids and screaming kids which was very off putting.
There was 2B and 3B on the bar i had a drink of 3B and this was a fairly decent drink but would have been even better if the pub was run better and not been aloud to be over run with kids.
