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.

Just got home. Great service and wonderful food. We were out to celebrate my wife's birthday. I had my 15 yr old daughter and 67 yr old father in law. We all loved it. We weren't sure of what to order. Great explanation by the landlord. Proper good food, really tasty, good service and lots of smiles. Good to see... More

We had a really good experience and we will be going back soon! It has a great feel to it. Half rustic local pub with friendly people out for a pint and the odd well behaved dog, but through an arch way and you find yourself in a simple, clean and beautiful Thai restaurant! I rang ahead on a Friday... More

We called on recommendation and weren't disappointed overall. We arrived early evening and it was suggested that we could only have a seat in the restaurant area if we could be out in an hour or so. We preferred the bar area in any case as we didn't want to rush our meal and have gentle conversation but it must... More

We have eaten here twice - in June and in September - with a group of 10 friends, on the recommendation of a Swindon resident who is a Thai national. The food is excellent; authentic, well presented and we were well looked after. The pub has a good range of real ales, Sky Sports showing on its TV screens &... More

My second visit in 2 months, but this time with family. I didn't think for one minute that I would have to reserve a table on a Wednesday evening, but the restaurant was fully booked, so we decided to eat in the bar. It was a lovely evening, so we sat in the garden until we were ready to order,... More

My partner and I went here a few nights ago after stumbling upon it during a google search for local Thai restaurants. I was surprised to see Thai food offered from a pub, especially as my Mum grew up a few doors away and remembers the traditional pub it used to be! It hasn't changed much; you need to understand...
