Nice atmosphere, good food

visited with work colleagues, most of which are local to Swindon area. We all enjoyed our meals - fish and chips recommended for hungry patrons! All in the party are regular diners and on this occasion everyone was very happy with food choices, in particular lamb, steak and kebabs. A pleasant... read more

We went out for lunch with a friend who had recently moved to Swindon. It was a Wednesday but very quiet though the atmosphere in the pub was very comfortable despite that. The welcome was very warm so we ordered two Wiltshire hams served with locally sourced eggs, an attractive tiny leafed salad and chips. Our friend had fried haddock... More

Sat outside in the newly refurbished beer garden in the sunshine, eating a delicious swordfish dish with a light curry and mixed vegetable garnish, it felt like I was enjoying the best of Mediterranean cuisine on my doorstep. Service was attentive and chatty, Doom Bar was good. Couldn't fault our lunch. Will keep going back again and again. The Barbury... More

Having read good reviews we were extremely disappointed with the food. Tiny portions not cooked or presented well. My daughters younger clientele sausage and chips was one sausage and 4 chips. Very limited choice but very high prices. We will not be returning.

We visited the Barbary Inn on Saturday night 16th may for a meal after reading good review's on trip advisor We did not order a starter just a main course, when the meal did arrive we all thought we had a starter and not the main course meal as to the lack of food that was on our plate.

My husband and made a last minute booking on a Friday night, as we often do. It really was so disappointing from a whole bottle of mixer tipped into a single gin, having to ask for ice & for a slice. The meal was sadly very uncharacteristic of this gastro-pub. My confit duck leg was so terribly dry and crispy... More

I am very sad to hear that you were disappointed with your most recent visit to us, even on such a busy night we did accommodate your last minute booking as you say. Unfortunately I myself cannot over see every aspect of everyone's stay with us but I do have faith in all staff here to deal with any queries... More

At last a decent place to eat near Wootton Bassett - which is distinctly lacking in good restaurants. Relaxed comfortable pub eatery. Really good menu and great well cooked and presented food. The chicken parfait was delicious as was the sticky toffee pudding - we had to order another! Lovely attentive service too.

Pleasant bar restaurant environment but what a pleasant surprise was the dinner. Provided steak is good enough and very well hung I like my steak blue and boy, was this good steak and perfectly cooked. My wife had the duck which she said was excellent too. I enjoyed two glasses of Pinot Noir which was quite good too, and excellent... More

I must confess, I've been driving past this pub for years saying I'd go in there 'one day' and that day came last Saturday lunchtime. It was only a flying visit for a quick pint but I think this will become a regular occurrence. My first impression was the interior looked smart and classy and I was stunned when 2... More
