Quirky Pub, Good Food

A quirky little pub not far from the Kennet and Avon canal. Good beer and good food. Nice place to stop for a beer whilst walking the canalside.

An all-round average experience was completely ruined by the obnoxious, rude and rather insulting Landlord. This "gentleman" should not be dealing with customers... Or with people generally as his manner would be more suited to a prison warden. My friends and I will never give is man another pence.... Customers lost!

Food was unremarkable, and the whole place is let down by the awkward,ignorant landlord who was argumentative, confrontational and sarcastic towards his customers - he managed to get under the skin of everyone at some stage who attended over a 2 day event. Don't bother with booking the outside room as it's tiny and the excellent Waddies beer is sadly... More

The Golden Swan recently did a BBQ for our wedding at wilton windmill. The BBQ was delicious (as their food always is), they were well organised and very relaxed AND it was exceptional value. I would highly recomend using them for any event onsite or as out caterers, I would use them again in a flash.

Having recently moved back to the area, we treated ourselves to an evening out. We found the Golden Swan and ordered a meal. Food was delicious and freshly cooked. The landlord and landlady are lovely, very friendly and welcoming. The pub dog is a permanent fixture, and signs warn you not to feed it :D Have popped in a couple... More

We were here for a wedding. The owners were very friendly and accommodating. The fish and chip snacks were great. The hog roast was excellent. A great time was had by all.

Visited on the last leg of our canal boat holiday on the Kennet and Avon canal. This relatively quiet village pub is a hidden gem in a little village off the canal. Very good food and local ale, dog friendly and pub games to play while you are visiting. Would well recommend as a visit or to spend an evening... More

Having stayed overnight in one of the guest bedrooms in the Summer and tasted the delicious breakfasts, we decided to take two friends for Sunday lunch at this lovely Country family run pub which is also dog friendly. We were made to feel most welcome from the start and sat down to enjoy a delicious lunch with most generous portions... More
