Authentic thai food on my door step, great find!

I have been to Thailand a few times, we even did some cookery class's during our stays, so to find out that a Pub in Wroughton near where we live does authentic Thai food was to difficult to resist, and we are glad we didn't resist. We called in quite early on a weekday evening, the welcome was... read more

The food is beautiful and the staff are friendly. Can get a little noisy from the pub but would recommend this to anyone! Tasty food and chilled atmosphere.

We've never eaten off the English part of the menu, but the Thai food here is great, and it's well worth a visit. It's often quiet, which can feel a little awkward as it feels like the bar staff are listening in to your conversations, but the food makes up for that!

Highly recommended. Authentic and good Thai cuisine and a good selection of well kept Fullers and guest ales. Homely, pub style seating in the restaurant which benefits from a wood burner stove.

Went here tonight and felt compelled to review it which never happens... Although we had to leave early we really enjoyed it, the food was outstanding - very fragrant without being overpowering and good medium-large portions, also very well presented on par with an up market/expensive restaurant. Nice big range of dishes to choose from as well. We sat in... More

After work colleagues raved about the food here I decided to try it for myself and was so impressed with the quality and freshness. I have been to Thailand several times and the memories came flooding back. The pub is very welcoming and friendly and even the locals had smiles on their faces and said hello.....I have already recommended to... More

Been to this pub several times now, the food is genuinely Thai (if you know what to ask for), always very tasty and great value for money. I haven taken a few friend now who gave it their seal of approval. If you are more interested in the food than the decor (pub atmosphere rather than restaurant) then this is... More

Dropped in on Saturday for a Thai meal. Very friendly pub with Fullers beer - our favourite!! Food was from a wide varied Thai menu and presented well, and delicious. Price was good, must go back again!

Came here for lunch, had the 'GAENG KHIEW WAN GAI' Hot Thai Green Curry with Chicken, Coconut milk, sweet basil, and aubergines - Very Tasty! Served Hot - great value for money! Also shared the stir fried aubergine dish which was delicious. The curry was quite spicy but i love that. Great for warming you up on a cold day!... More

When friends said there was a Thai cook working in a pub in Wroughton I didn't believe them. The food is some of the most delicately flavoured Thai food I have had outside of Thailand. The pub restaurant is a bit cramped but that is my only grumble. Recommended for authentic Thai food.
