I feel so comfortable and respected when I visit the old road. Staff are friendly and fair. Great music, live comedy and bands! Everyone is welcome including dogs which makes it even better. Brilliant place definitely worth a visit!

Stumbled upon this place with my boyfriend, sister and her boyfriend for a late night pint. Beautiful beer garden with friendly staff and locals. Great pub and they do live music throughout the week too.

I have seen some of my favourite comedians at this venue... i.e. Russell Wood! Otter beer ok, but wine comes in small bottles - however it has changed recently and is now very good. Great pool room and garden.

In Chippenham you're usually stuck with mainstream 'bars' that play Bruno Mars until your ears bleed. The old road is a proper boozer with proper beer and proper music. It is the best pub in town and all of the staff are ace and always...More

Yes, particularly during the folk festival, which it's integral to. They also run open mic nights, where anybody, with or without an instrument, is welcome, particularly first-time performers.
