The Glue Pot

Situated in the heart
of Brunel’s railway village, a short walk from Swindon station

Situated in the heart of Brunel’s railway village, the Glue Pot is a fantastic small traditional pub. The pub is named for the glue pots nearby coachbuilders would bring into the pub at lunchtime and place on the central stove to keep warm.

Manager JC and his team are always friendly and welcoming, and very knowledgeable about their beers. Make sure you don’t miss the large chalk board’s on the wall outlining each day’s offering and what the team think of each beer or cider.

The pub also boasts a great selection of traditional ciders, a selection of malt whiskeys, bottled beers and wines all hand picked by JC.

Filled rolls and wraps are available every lunchtime.

  • Rolls available at lunchtime
  • Outside seating area
  • Wednesday – Quiz night
  • Beer Festivals – Every Easter Weekend

Pub Testimonials

“An impressive 8 real ales on tap in a pub in Swindon’s historic Railway Village. A right old boozer of a pub with partitioned seating with a pretty varied crowd, 2 of the 3 kids near me were drinking the real ale so a big thumbs up for that. Pretty much an automatic entry for the Good Beer Guide.”
