Been meaning to try this place for a while and we are so glad we did. The welcome from the bar staff was warm and friendly from start to end. The food was really good and reasonably priced. Will definitely be visiting again soon!

Visited for a family meal. We had been informed that the ghastly rude previous landlady had moved to another poor unsuspecting establishment in Swindon, to upset the patrons. The food was lovely and the staff were brilliant. Such a difference!

Have not been here for ages as the previous manager was such a horrible person. Was informed she had been moved, so we went in today and the place is like a breath of fresh air, warm and very welcoming. The new manager was a delight and all the staff were very approachable and nice. The food was excellent, hot... More

Horrible customer service by ALL members of staff, including the landlady!! They have never got enough staff in, I have been here numberous of times and have had to seat myself as they just shout from the bar what table you can have. A lady came in with what looked like a newborn baby to be told 'I don't allow... More

We had visited this pub restaurant a few times previously. One time we struggled to park on the car park let alone the disabled space due to the landlady allowing parents from a near by school park there to pick up their children. When we eventually made it inside we commented about non- disabled parking in the disabled but she... More

never met or come across such a downright rude and discourteous landlady in my life. How this woman is managing to keep this place going is beyond me. Her whole demeanour and attitude stinks. Went in with my partner and my 2 children age 5 and 16 to be given a look of disgust that I have brought children into... More
