The Bustard Inn was situated on Great Bustard Road. Originally a coaching inn (400-500 years old) it is now a therapy centre run by a charity called God Unlimited (GUL).
 
In 1863 it was used as the headquarters by prominent members of The Old Hawking Club (which later gave rise to the current day British Falconers Club) when they went rook Hawking on Salisbury Plain.
