No point in coming to Swindon if you don't come here. Drinking an Animal beer (well, Cormorant actually) from TX. Catch it while you can - beers and food ever changing. The Korean Cauliflower and kimchi are delish. One v satisfied customer

Nice decor although a little loud without any soft furnishings. No music. This place doesn’t sell the common beers so when I asked could I try one “I was met with a sarcastic reply” so I’m unsure what lol visit again.
