Couldn't be bothered to cook breakfast for our guests so tried breakfast at here for the first time; brilliant value, less than £5 for each meal (all day breakfasts and eggs benedict) , food was good, staff were friendly. Also my son left his iPad and they picked it up from our table outside and kept hold of it, which... More

Very disappointed to say the least. I requested a quite room when checking in and was told a room at the front would be quieter than one above the kitchen. The room was extremely noisey from the lorries and cars on the main road and also from other room doors slamming shut as well as the creaky hallway floor boards!... More

Superb breakfast and evening meal. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Hall carpets really do need to be shampood or better still replaced. Pub has a great atmosphere. Situated near the theatre which was where I needed to be. Staff were very helpful.

In Swindon for the night visiting friends. Cheap, clean, tidy, basic but fit our needs. Parking at the back of the pub and a full English breakfast included for only a few extra pounds. Spent most of the evening in the pub, I've drank here on numerous occasions and never had any complaints. Friendly staff, quick service and inexpensive. Generally... More

Stayed at the Goddard on Saturday night so we were within walking distance of The Town Festival and The Victoria pub's live music. It is fine. The rooms are quite dated and rough, but overall very clean, and the bed was particularly comfortable. We found the staff very helpful and friendly and have not complaints. Didn't eat there this time,... More

This is really a pub with rooms in my opinion. The pub is definitely the priority here. There is parking behind the hotel which you pay for. The food is ok, just ok, nothing to rave about. The drinks are not too expensive. We had planned to stay but called for a drink and changed our minds about the stay... More

Stopped in today for lunch, the food was spot on, staff were great and our family had a great afternoon out. There is parking behind the hotel but not loads, so suggest getting there early. We will be back.

This pub is walking distance from our house. Does great food, good beers & wines & most importantly, welcomes our children. There's something for everyone on the menu & we have never been disappointed with our meals. They even do a great breakfast! Well worth a visit, it's a firm favourite with our family!
