Multi roomed boozer with a nice beer garden out the back and a pool table. A youngish but not chav like range of customers on our visit. Good beer range, lots to recommend about this place 7 and three quarters out of 10!

Great pub, a couple of minutes walk from Chippenham railway station (upside), five beers on including Otter, Summer Lightening and a guest. Multi roomed interior, friendly locals, newspapers available and a great beer garden out the back, my favourite in the town.

I moved away from Chippenham a year or so ago and if my heart hurt more for this bar, it'd be because of a medical complaint.
it's so good, it's just so good, staff are friendly and knowledgeable, beer is tastey, snack selection is reasonable, i've never eaten there, but you don't need to eat when your having as good a time as i have had.

The best time to go to the Old Road, Oldy, The Tav, Tavvles, Oldleberry
Nothing makes a good quality locally brewed ale better than the satisfaction of fighting through a ten deep crowd of blacked-up, morris dancing, mandolin playing, mental old, hippies all trying to get exactly the same thing as you

has recently developed a chav problem, they look about 12. if not chav, squaddy, but not good squaddy, violent child squaddy.

Busy friday night, local crazy kicking up a fuss? any of the barmen or bargirls will sort it out faster than you could say "oh did you see that bargirl pick up that overweight man and hurl him over the wall between the beer garden and threshers?"

Beer garden. What so many bars lack, without even noticing most of the time. well attended by staff, even at busy periods glasses are collected.

so good

pity wetherspoons opened a bar in the cess pit of a town centre. immediately 3 smaller pubs closed. which has hopefully bolstered the old road's custom.

long live the oldy, may she misguide the youth and laugh about it to the oldth for many years to come

Great pub. Good real ale selection for a pub of it's size. Friendly locals and staff. As a jet lagged Aussie was made to feel very welcome.

Excellent back street local 200yards from Chippenham station, great place to wait for the train. 5 real ales on, Cornish Coaster, London Pride, two others I can't remember and Summer Lightning, which was my choice.

Busy enough on a Monday afternoon with several locals at the bar. It appears to be the headquarters of the Chippenham folk festival and morris dancers judging by the photos on the wall.

Well worth a visit if the train is late
