Family-friendly foodie pub

Beer festival
Open all year

Swindon's oldest brewery, Arkell's, owns this late 19th-century pub. A particular attraction is its riverside terrace, although a great gin selection, Tuesday poker, Thursday quiz, Sky TV and BT Sport, pool, darts and live entertainment also keep the footfall high. The Runner knows customers appreciate good value pub food, so steaks, hunter's chicken, hand-carved Wiltshire ham and eggs, home-made chilli con carne, are always on the menu. Children are welcome until 9pm.
