The Wheatsheaf is a cosy Wadworth's pub in Swindon's Old Town. It features a number of old wooden casks behind the bar. But, they do not hold any beer. The normal range of Wadworth ales was on - 6X, IPA, Horizon & Swordfish. They also had Severn Brewing Golden IPA as a guest and 3 real ciders from Weston's - Old Rosie, Rosie's Pig & Rosie's Pig Rhubarb. With no music, conversation was the only noise. But, with only a handful of customers, that did make it a little quiet. I quite liked it though.

Lovely old fashioned pub. Great ales from the wooden casks..As for previous comments they clearly have not been back for some time. My wife loves this place great "plastic fantastics" to be found in here!!

This has now been refurbished and reopened. Still not sure what the opening hours are, but managed to get in there on a Friday evening.

Refurb looked plasticky, but seen an awful lot worse, and it's fundamentally the same (unfortunately this includes the loos). After a while, we'll probably think this is what it looked like all along,

Guest and 6X were pretty decent, but it's a cider disaster: nothing reasonable, even on bottle, and how do you manage to ruin Stowford? (my guess is to freeze it, put it back to the proper temperature, and then hope people won't notice).

I'll visit again, but it'll take a lot to get the Chairlady of the Board there.

A disgrace to the Wadworth name, now open only from 1800 Tuesday - Sunday, doesnt open Mondays at all, this used to be THE place to drink in old Town, what on earth has gone wrong? Can see it closing for good soon...

I'd love to give a report on this pub but it didn't open until 5pm so I missed it from my lunchtime crawl! The board outside said "5 cask ales today" - great if you're open not great if you are shut! Strange timing as all the other pubs were open (Saturday)
