Good Thai Food!

My first comment is that this pub is situated in Wroughton, Swindon, Wiltshire (not Dudley, West Midlands as listed!). We experienced a friendly and inviting atmosphere and the staff were most helpful. The Thai food was delicious and authentic (we lived in the Far East for two years). It was... read more

Birthday treat, we love Thai food and after reading all the reviews about the food here we were really looking forward to it. However, we were a little disappointed, the food was pretty average. We both had meals that we are familiar with from a number of other restaurants and in comparison we found it to be quite bland. We... More

My husband and I visited one lunchtime between Christmas and new year. He had been on a previous occasion with friends and really enjoyed it and built it up quite a lot so I was really looking forward to trying it. When we parked at the rear car park the door was locked so we had to walk round the... More

Let's start by stating that the Thai food here was excellent. Sadly, the three stars reflects the service. The Check in has a basic English and extensive Thai menu. The four of us agreed that the food was excellent. Perfect Thai. Our issue was with the service and to a degree, the venue. The restaurant was cold. It was a... More

This was the first time we have been to the Check inn and most certainly will not be out last. The staff were friendly and most welcoming the food and service were excellent. Portion size were good and the price reasonable for the quality of the food.

The Check Inn is an amalgam of a local dog friendly pub and an excellent Thai restaurant that also does takaway. The front garden is not far from the motorway flyover - so a bit noisy. However, the rear garden is quieter, a great place to view a beautiful sunset across open fields.

My family and I visited the check Inn for a birthday dinner. The food is delicious, the best Thai food I have tried. The decor etc leaves a little to be desired however the food makes up for it.

You could never tell from the outside just what you're going to experience, its a standard looking English pub. Go inside and you find similar pub surroundings, and a decent selection of drinks on the bar. The food is the real winner, its great quality, extremely authentic Thai food, served in good sized portions and at a reasonable price. Its... More
