Welcome to The Horse Guards

Welcome to The Horse Guards, an early 18th Century free house, where we serve the best in food, wines and real ales.

In the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, just outside Malmesbury and not far from Tetbury,  The Horse Guards nestles in the tiny village of Brokenborough. We are a traditional Cotswold country pub complete with a roaring log fire on cold winter days, a cosy bar, restaurant, spacious guest accommodation, extensive gardens and car parking.

The Horse Guards can be booked for a variety of functions from wedding receptions to intimate family or friends' gatherings. 

We believe our hospitality is second to none and look forward to your company.

landlord and landlady, and Arthur and Janette
are very welcoming and totally professional."
