Local pub database

Swindon Pub Guide

We have got an online pub guide covering this branch. It contains about 300 pubs, bars and hotels, nearly 180 of which serve real ale. Please click on the image on the left to open our pub database in a new window.
If you visit any of our pubs, just give us some feedback. If there has been no change to a pub, just let us know the date of your visit - no need for a survey. You can print or download the survey form as a pdf file. Pub Survey Form.pdf.

Well, just temporarily for a refit. It will close Monday 11 August for about 2 1/2 weeks. It will be reopened to the public 29 August with a wider range of ales (including ales from local breweries), ciders, and wines.
"We will also be serving locally made pies, mash and gravy."

A World of Hops

Arkells beers

More new beers from Alex and the brewing team at Arkell's brewery to look forward to.

This time there will be a series of four beers over four months using four different international hops.

The August beer uses Waimea hops from New Zealand.

The September beer uses Bobek hops from Slovenia.

The October beer uses Centennial hops from the United States.

The November beer uses Marynka hops from Poland.
