Ate here recently and tried the doorstop BBQ steak sandwich for the first time.
Customer service and food presentation I can't fault but the food itself .... well unfortunately I had to leave most of it.

Hardly any steak in the sandwich itself and the bread was a pile of mush due to the overloading of BBQ sauce (I assume that's what it was) and mayo?
Absolute shame as the bread looked deliciously fresh but I ended up scraping out the very few bits of steak and leaving the bread which was 50% of the meal.

Second bad meal I've had here now so unfortunately I'll be looking elsewhere in future until food quality improves.

On a positive, as mentioned above, the customer service was lovely and extremely friendly. Greeted as you walk in and also when you leave.

Disgusting place! When i finally got my food after a very long wait it was overcooked and dry and the cutlery was dirty just like the floor. Gross! When i mentioned to one of the managers that my food wasn't nice (not trying to get something free just to let them know) she was rude and became salty with my table the rest of the night always looking over with an ugly grimace like a pathetic child sulking, which made me feel uncomfortable the whole night. All the rest of the bar staff seemed to do was chat to other staff members or to regulars which was why we had a manager being our server. We were sat in the closest table to the kitchen and all we could hear was swearing and shouting which i dont think is acceptable at all! Overall just not a very nice atmosphere or attitude from staff. Will not be going there ever again and will make sure to tell my family and friends to avoid this appalling establishment to!

Great food great pub! One of my favourite places to eat in Swindon.
They also hold quiz nights.
I would always recommend booking as it's such a popular place to eat.
They also have accommodation on the premises if you needed anywhere to stay!

Had an hour for lunch, however having ordered took over 30 minutes to arrive which meant lunch was rushed and not enjoyable. When it did arrive it was tasty hot and hit the mark. Hate to moan, but it was lunch??
