“Very pleased with our stay”
Reviewed 22 August 2014 via mobile

The Goddard arms seems to have two tripadvisor pages, so if this one is just for restaurant and food comments we only have positive things to say. We ate three times from the menu on out stay and enjoyed all the meals. A vibrant pub with surprisingly nice toilets for a chain. We will come again.

“Nice setting decent food”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

Recently refurbished is is now more than good looking. This large and comfortable pub in the downtown area of Swindon has all what is needed to welcome you in a nice setting, warm atmosphere good beer. Don't forget the open air deck if weather is good enough.
Food is still "pub food" but at a decent level and you cannot complain too much.
Price is coherent to the new refurbishment level so not "popular" but at least you have decent quality in exchange.
Once you have checked the alternatives in the surroundings, except for a couple of similar level options, this will seem the reasonable choice.
