A number of us visited on a Saturday lunchtime. 4 of us ordered breakfast, the pub wasn't particularly busy. Three full English breakfasts arrived within 10 minutes. The presentation, size and taste was good, unfortunately the 4th breakfast never arrived. After chasing it up twice it arrived taking 40 minutes. It's not the fact that the breakfast was late, simply... More

Had lunch here this week during a trip to see some friends and family in Swindon. Meals were great, even the ones which were on offer at 2 for £10.50, which you'd normally expect to be cheaper and smaller. This is one of those genuine offers where you actually get some value for money. Great staff, fabulous old building, recommended... More

I came to Swindon for a friends birthday celebration and this pub came recommended. Being a hotel above a pub at a cost of £50 per night, my expectations weren't very high, but I was pleasantly surprised. Check in was easy, although could do with some signage to highlight that's where you need to check in. The rooms were small... More

Booked a weekend in Wiltshire at short notice and this was the only hotel available at a reasonable price. The hotel has a pay and display car park to the rear, residents do not have to pay make sure you obtain a permit when you check in. We were accompanied to our room by a member of staff who explained... More

Ate from the main menu three times, everything was very high standard. No complaints on the food but drinks were quite pricey. The restaurant has a vibrant atmosphere and always seemed quite busy. Our room was a bit noisy from the road but all in all a great trip to old town.

Excellent food and drink, hotel rooms are a bit dated but In general a well looked after pub. Worth booking for an evening meal as it gets very busy. Place was very clean, staff friendly, good selection of beers.
