Very friendly bar and kitchen staff! I have been here once before and it was very good but sadly on this visit the noodles came out burnt! Very apologetic and they didn't hesitate to give us our money back! Overall a good experience

Hidden away a bit. Lots of free parking. Felt a bit like going back in time and a distinctive smell of oldness about the place- decor could be better. However the food was absolutely delicious. Highly recommend the green Thai curry and fish cakes for starters. Friendly Thai waiting on staff. Felt very welcome. Would go back again and have... More

Feel like this review is more than necessary. Me and a couple of colleges stayed over at the check inn a couple of weeks back whilst working in Swindon. We decided to try out the Thai food on offer. I personally had never tried Thai before so didn't know what to expect, Steve the landlord took time to explain the... More

A dog friendly pub offering authentic Thai food in adjoining restaurant. I'm having a pint of Hoegaarden while waiting for a delicious takeaway.

My husband and I fancied a Thai meal as a treat today. We travelled to Wroughton and were very much looking forward to a nice leisurely lunch. On arrival we ordered drinks and decided to eat in the bar side to be relaxed. The pub was strangely empty for a Saturday. We ordered prawn satay which was ok, a duck... More

We have friends who don't like to experiment with food so its either Chinese or Thai. They recommended this place. The location is a bit out of the way - but that's not a problem for us to travel. I can imagine if you were local this would be really appealing. Its a large pub that serves Thai. I have... More

Dropped in for an special meal, and it was wonderful. Thai food and Fullers beer! Where else in the country does this exist?? We samples the real ales, and then sat for our meal. Pork dish and roasted duck with veg and rice. All great. Then a very nice blueberry cheesecake to share. Great place - must go back!!

We stumbled on this pub/restaurant when looking for a hotel! It is at the end of a dead end, with the M4 roaring in the background! The pub is traditional and bit dowdy, but staff and landlord are friendly and welcoming. But the treat is the Thai restaurant attached! We had a delicious meal!

Turned up on spec on a Tuesday evening, given warm welcome by landlord and after getting drinks shown to seat in restaurant. Waitress arrived after few minutes by which time we'd decided on starters (chicken satay and spring rolls) and mains (red chicken curry and chicken in oyster sauce with jasmine rice) After short wait starters arrived and they were...
