user reviews of the Blundston Arms, Swindon

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

The Blunsdon Arms is a fairly typical Ember Inn establishment. Late on a Sunday lunchtime, there was a mixture of diners, drinkers and families. St Austell Tribute is the regular ale here. Guests were Dark Star American Pale Ale, Thwaite's Wainwright, Butcombe Original, Fuller's London Pride, Thornbridge Jaipur, Bath Gem & Laine's Mango-licious. Ciders were Old Rosie & Rosie's Pig. So, a better than average drinks range for an Ember Inn. As previous reviewers state though, the interior is characterless and the location is neither here nor there.

A large, busy, new pub near the Orbital shopping park on the north western corner of Swindon.

Nice enough, and done in the traditional style, but understandably a bit characterless. Bar service was efficient but rather impersonal.

Plenty of nice outside seating and interior very pleasant on the whole. The emphasis is mainly on food of course. This is pretty average fare (stale chips, overdone steak, mushrooms dripping with oil). Perhaps it was just an off day in the kitchen as I have heard good things from locals about the place.

Worth a look is you're passing.

Didn't try the ales but Thatchers Heritage cider was good, if you like that sort of thing.

Nice decor and reasonably good service. The food's quite nice if I'm honest and competitively priced. The 2 major plus points however are the wide range of real Ales, which I can recomend - and the fact that kids are not allowed (hoorah) meaning that unusually, it's grown ups only.
