Excellent service. I had the chunky beef Chilli Con Carne & it was superb!! Will try to copy this one. We eat here regularly & always very happy. The staff are always very helpful & polite. The food is good value.

Proper country pub hidden away, friendly staff with a good selection of beer and good menu. Nice decor . Not many traditional pubs left so well worth a look. Rooms are a bonus as its only couple of minutes from Swindon town centre by car

Turned up last night for an evening meal. Great Parking. Friendly Staff and Excellent Beer and Food. The lovely cosy atmosphere was obviously hit with many others. Top marks to the management and brewery for keeping these types of hostelries open. Highly recommend the steak....More
