Wiltshire pub, real ale and Thai food.

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

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
