Good Food Guide

Helen Browning’s Chop House has joined sister restaurant Helen Browning’s Royal Oak with an entry in the Good Food Guide!

As mentioned in the Swindon Advertiser Chop House Manager Anne Roberts said winning a place in the guide was unbelieveable.

She said “It’s lovely, the pub has been in the guide for I don’t know how many years.  We’re just the little Chop House, we do our best all day every day.  It feels amazing!  It’s a huge pat on the back to know we’re doing so well, the Chop House is the only place in Swindon that’s organic … it does set us apart in the town”

From the guide “Ingredient-led cooking is an overused buzzphrase, but it has real meaning in this no-frills wildly popular diner in Old Swindon”


Chef Manfred leads Oktoberfest!

From 5pm on Saturday 22nd Sept to Sunday 30th Sept, we will be celebrating Oktoberfest!

Traditionally a german festival to celebrate the harvest – but nowadays, lets face it, we don’t need too much of an excuse to celebrate great food and beer!

Led by Chop House’s very own Bavarian chef Manfred, expect lots of pork, fresh smoked mackerel, mashed potato, krauts and sausages as well as lots of great beers and wines.

There will be 2 big tables where you get to sit next to happy strangers, as well as one or 2 separate tables of 2 and 4.
Please call the restaurant to make a booking 01793 527082.
