We went to the Check Inn with friends for a Thai meal. Don't be put off by first impressions because you walk into what seems like an old english boozer with tables set up for pub grub. There are no fancy trimmings just lovely Thai food at very sensible prices. We will definitely eat there again.

Authentic fresh Thai food , have been here a few times now and have really enjoyed the food , they do handle smaller groups better and unfortunately some of the mains are more like starters , ie the jungle curry .

Great meal, it all tasted delicious. Good selection of dishes available on the menu. I think the prices are fair, considering the food appears to be prepared and cooked freshly - the vegetables were still nice and crunchy, not ruined. The seafood was also cooked perfectly. The beer selection was pretty good, seemingly from larger breweries - though certainly a... More

I've just been back to the Check Inn during another visit to Swindon. It was first class - real ale, Thai food and great hospitality - just as it was when I was last there, back in September, 2014. Well done and thanks once again.

Quite a contrast between the bar area and the well presented restaurant area. Crisp white table linen and a relaxed atmosphere. The food was delicious and very well presented. There is a varied menu to suit all tastes. They even do take away and we will certainly give that a go at a later date. A little gem right on... More

Fab Thai food, so tasty and all fresh ingredients. The food was beautifully presented and tasted even better. A group of 4 of us went for lunch and were not disappointed. Having the 2 separate menus is a little odd and the pub itself had a slight odour which was unappealing (smelt like wet dog?) but the food was so... More

Once again another great meal and good value for money... Thai prawn starter followed by Thai green chicken... Looking forward to our next visit.

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 good and... More
