About Us

You'll find us situated at the bottom end of the elongated village of Wanborough, just outside Swindon.

Here, we'd like to think we've developed a pub that mixes a modern contemporay feel with the traditional ingredients that you'd expect from the best places to eat and drink, namely: expertly prepared food, friendly atmosphere and courteous, efficient staff.

But just how long the Brewers has been welcoming vistors we don't know.

The first reference to it is in the 1861 census when landlord Thomas Turtle was known to be brewing on the premises. By 1869 it had passed to a man called Charles Prince who was later prosecuted for using undersized pots. But the owner of the freehold was Charles Hurt, who also owned nearby Horpit Farm. He eventually sold the pub to Arkell's in 1873.

As with many village pubs, part of the Brewers was used at one time as a shop, but the premises were extensively modernised in 1969 again in 2004. The addition of an impressive conservatory in 1991 allowed for even more space in the large lounge which opens out onto the garden.

Even so, many still come for the smaller room at the front which retains the character of a traditional public bar with its curiously large eating area behind the bar itself - both particularly welcoming when we light our log fires when winter time arrives.

In the splendour of summer, when our extensive garden (including a children's play area) really comes into its own.
