For Swindon this place is buzzing, normally it's quite quiet, except at the weekends 8pm onwards.. Been there for several times for drinks and food, both very reasonably priced. Place is quite a good atmosphere compared to other pubs nearby, lots of seating both downstairs and upstairs.
However, I do find the staff a bit "not there".. One time on a curry night I was going to order a certain dish, they did not have that in stock (disappointment! If you don't have it, don't print it on your curry night menu) Then the staff suggested I try another one, mentioning a name that did not show on the menu, so wasn't very useful. There weren't many options on curry nights, in my opinion.
Another time we ordered pitchers, and a different bar staff made us a completely different pitcher, and it was only 2/3 full, we didn't say anything, guessing it was just a one-off...
Still, cheap food and drink, good for a weekend pub night, in Swindon anyway.

Good food at reasonable prices, gets a little noisy as it fills up for the evening. 2 for 1s on drinks.

Only ordered sides as an evening snack as we had eaten a big lunch earlier. Good prices and quick service as always.

Curry night - what an excellent choice for a meal by my mate and me - really tasty curry with all the extras - and great draught bitter at very reasonable prices - you have to admit Wetherspoons is doing something right!

Liked for its excellent beers. Liked because it offers very good value. Liked because it has a whole mix of age ranges. Good to see older persons enjoying affordable drinks and sitting in comfort.
