Reviewed September 22, 2012

Have been twice now, and both times i have been very impressed! The food is astounding, freshly cooked, and so tasty, would recommend to anybody who likes Thai food.
All the staff are very friendly and welcoming and make the whole dining experience a very enjoyable meal out!
Looking forward to going back very soon indeed!

“A pleasant surprise”
Reviewed September 17, 2012 via mobile

Went in on a quiet Monday night. Not really expecting such wonderful food! Good service. Good range of drinks. Friendly. But the food? Wow! Would recommend and look forward to going again. Reasonably good value. A real find and a pleasant surprise!

“Great Pub which allows Dogs and Thai Food is good with Starpromen and Peroni on tap!”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

Really nice atmosphere. It's had a lot of different owners over the years but the land lord and staff now are very nice and welcoming and the Thai food is tasty.

Allowing dogs off the lead in the pub, when people are not eating in the restaurant is a great touch!

Food is ok, sometime great. Never bad but range from average to tasty... but no sticky rice or less you order the day before.

Beers great, you have Wifi and dartboard... Motorway can be a little noisy but get use to it.

Overall no complaints

“Thai Curry YUM !!!!”
Reviewed June 7, 2012

If you like Thai Curry go to the Check Inn Wroughton Yum Yum the have a Thai chef and it is a hidden secret of whitshire we found.
The Pub is tucked away just over the bridge from Swindon on the way to Wroughton the round window table has a nice view and is sought after on sunny days.
The landlord and staff are very friendly the pub has large open areas which give you room to relax and enjoy your meal.
Children can play in the fenced area outside the front beer garden.
We will go again.
