About our venue

The Cold Harbour in Blunsdon lies on the A419 out of Swindon with a Premier Inn next door. This attractive 18th Century building underwent a full refurbishment in Spring 2010 but has retained much of its past with original old beams, fireplaces and nooks and crannies. The olde worlde mood is enhanced by candles on the dining tables! Outside is prettily decorated with window boxes all around. There is a fair sized garden with plenty of seating. Like all Chef & Brewer pubs we employ high quality Chefs who have superb kitchen facilities. The food can be chosen from a main menu or unique Specials from the chalk boards which allow our Chefs to show their flair! You will be served meals which have been prepared from the freshest of ingredients and cooked to order. To complement your meal there is an extensive choice of quality wines or real ales and other drinks are available at the bar. During the summer you can enjoy your meal al fresco in the garden if the weather allows. This is a warm, welcoming, popular destination food house with happy, helpful staff on hand to make your visit a memorable one. If you are looking for somewhere rather special to dine, then look no further than Cold Harbour. You could even prolong the experience by staying over at the Premier Inn.
