“A Taste of Thailand!!”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

This place was excellent, the staff were friendly and the food was cooked beautifully. After coming back from Thailand I wanted to try some of the dishes that I most missed, and it really did not disappoint. This really is authentic Thai food with all the character you would expect if you were in Thailand, apart from also having the bonus of being able to buy some great well kept ales!! I look forward to going back.

“We would normally travel 20 miles or more for this quality”
Reviewed January 16, 2013 via mobile

Despite a somewhat limited menu in terms of taste sensations it delivered in spades. On top of that the staff made the meal flow like magic and anticipated most if not all of our needs. Brilliant!

“Brilliant best Thai place in Swindon for a long time!”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

Went there with a group of eight of us and not one complaint everyone loved it! I have to say this place is so refreshing and it's the best value for money. I have been to a few Thai places in my time and am so glad I discovered this place! The chef even serves your food directly to you. Will certainly come back here time and time again

“Green Curry is what you need”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

Visited the Check Inn again for Beer and Thai Food after a break of several weeks. My friends and I vary where we go.

Beer selection is good as usual and the place is getting busier now on a Friday which when we normally go there. I ordered Thai Green Curry again (There are other options on the menu) and it's still really good. Quite satisfyingly hot but can be cooled down with 2 pints of beer.

There is both casual bar eating at table and also a more formal restaurant room area but this seems to be for the evenings.
