I can't remember, I didn't play for them but they were in the same league. I remember they used to put on a spread for us, a massive tray of chips and some bread and butter  Smiley.

If you like beer then the Hop in Old Town is brilliant, the Glue Pot is also highly recommended.

Otherwise pretty much all the pubs actually in Swindon are a much of a muchness, you could be in any pub in any town in the country. The Beehive used to have a few guest beers but I haven't set foot in there in 20 years.

To be fair most people in the league back then were 20 plus stone and covered in tattoos  Smiley. I have a vague recollection. I used to know this Bristol City fan who was 23 stone and 6ft 7ins. He was a really nice guy. I saw him the day after we dicked City 4-0 at Ashton Gate. He said "don't say a word" I didn't  Cheesy

They used to do an all day breakfast, curry with chips or. rice plus a couple of other things for about 3 back then until the early 2000's. Cracking!

Good stuff, glad the Castle is still open.

The pub crawl from The Glue Pot to Old Town used to be glorious.

Glue Pot
Cricketers
Bakers Arms
Rolleston
Duke
George (?)
Beehive
Castle
Prince Of Wales

By that time I was proper fucked and would usually go home Smiley

This is my kind of pub crawl. I'd throw in the Globe too. Shame that crawl can't be done anymore. I do steer towards the traditional pubs nowadays though and definitely not a Wetherspoons

Not right next to the station, its about a quarter of a mile walk, turn right out of the station stright up London Road up to where the road forks left at the old Mechanics Institute and its on the left there opposite the MI in Emlyn Square.

The ones right next to the station are the Queens Tap and The Great Western, avoid these pubs.
