Accommodation is in a small block just across from this Marstons pub. The rooms themselves are small but prefectly formed. Reasonable bed, good bathroom and good facilities - including copious amounts of tea & coffee provisions; a welcome change from the parsimonious attitude of most places. Although it's literally across from the station on the main line, with level crossing... More

Stayed here with eh family 2 nights for a wedding in the area. When we arrived Fri night the place was buzzing - really happy busy atmosphere, and lots of folks enjoying what looked like great food, and filling the large beer garden. Despite the busy bar, check in was efficient and friendly. The rooms are in a separate block... More

I have now stayed at the Swan twice, in one of their double rooms. I find the Swan comfortable its local to where I visit family and its only a couple of steps away from the railway station which makes life so easy. Thatcham town is only about fifteen minutes walk away and a lovely stroll from the hotel, though... More

This Marstons pub is in a great location, right near the train station. Very nice food, quick, but it felt like they were trying to make pub food into posh pub food. I had my Burger served on a wooden block, and my chips served in a cup ?? just serve it on a plate and be done with it... More

Myself, wife and 3 girls visited on a recommendation from a friend and we weren't disappointed. My wife had a steak, perfectly cooked to her liking and I had a steak burger, one of the best I've had (I've had a lot of burgers). Good food and although it was late in the service and there wasn't a lot of... More

For a large group of friends to meet up on a sunny day this was a great venue. But if you are someone who knows what real home cooked food tastes like, then avoid the food here. Very bland and my sister was violently ill afterwards! The head waitress was not good at receiving complaints, but all the other staff... More

Avoid if you can , Not the greatest of locations but could be a good pub if a few details were attended to, ie cleanliness , being made to feel welcome , and just overall shabbiness , foods not that great either while I'm at it. Will be voting with my feet, hope you do too.
