Fancy a Steak? 

However you like it, here's our guide to the best steak in Swindon
 
Eating Out in Swindon
Sirloin, rib-eye, T-bone or prime fillet.
 
Sometimes there's nothing better than a perfectly cooked steak.
 
Lucky for us, then, that there's a few places in Swindon that specialise in cooking just that. The real experts who source only the very best cuts, then flash it over the heat so it's done just as you like it.
 
And we've been out to meet a few of them to ask what goes into preparing, cooking and serving a real top-class steak.
 
Inglesham Forge
Highworth, North Swindon
 
Manuel Gomez, The Inglesham Forge, Highworth, Swindon
 
Inglesham Forge, Swindon
Manuel Gomez, the owner and head chef at The Inglesham Forge, has been winning awards for his food for over 30 years.
 
But it's his steaks that he's best known for.
 
"It's the care you put into the preparation that make the difference," he told us, "the cooking is the easy bit."
 
"The way you trim the fat and make the steak lean and tender without losing the flavour is all-important.
 
"Fillet is the very best cut in my opinion. Some say it doen't have the flavour but I disagree.
 
"Our house seasoning is an Inglesham Forge secret, so I won't tell you that but, above all, you have to love what you're doing. It shows in the cooking.
 
Favourite cut: Fillet - English, locally sourced from Lechlade
Cooked: Medium-rare
 
 
Swindon pubs and restaurants well-known for their steaks
 
The Grill at The Kings, Old Town
  
Grill, Swindon
The Grill is now open at 20 At The Kings.

The food is available in the bar during lunchtimes and in a brand-new restaurant room in the evening.

The food on offer is thoroughly satisfying as well, with a daily-changing menu full of some exciting new dishes and real traditional favourites – steak, lamb, chicken & fish.

The steaks especially, as you would expect, are all locally sourced within a 20 mile radius and have been ‘dry hung’ for at least 28 days. 
 
  
Weighbridge Brewhouse, Swindon

After 25 years at the award-winning Three Crowns at Brinkworth, steak lovers will be please to know owner Anthony Windle is continuing the traditional here in Swindon at this new restaurant.
 
All cuts are personally selected by the man himself, with preparation and cooking as you would expect from one of the top chefs in the area.
 
Fillet, sirloin & rib-eye are of course on the menu, plus you can choose from the likes of House Aged West Country Beef, Entrecote Steak on the bone & Cote de Boeuf for two people - all available with an incredible selection of sauces. 

 
Kenzo 72
Hoopers Place, Old Town
 
This oriental restaurant in Old Town is becoming popular for its range of dishes that includes contemporary fusion tapas and fine USA grade steak, which has been getting very good reviews on TripAdvisor.
 
The Bakers Arms, Badbury
 
If you're looking for a great country pub serving top quality food, then The Bakers Arms is just that.
 
And best of all, every Tuesday night they hold a Soup and Steak Night from 5.30-8.30pm.
 
A homemade soup of the day with crusty bread plus Rump Steak with mushrooms, tomato, garden peas and chips - all for just £10.00!
 
  
The Angel, Royal Wootton Bassett
 
Angel Hotel, Royal Wootton Bassett steak
The Angel boasts a fine reputation for its locally-sourced beef; with selected individual cuts matured in the dry-ageing room to a minimum of 21 days, to produce a tender, fuller flavour.

Their charcoal grill also means they cook their steaks exactly how they should be.
 
 
Fratello's

Not the first place that comes to mind when you think of steak, but their Italian style grills will have you coming back for more!

 
The Tawny Owl, north Swindon
 
This pubs serves upwards of 500 steaks a month, so they must be doing something right. All the favourites are on offer: fillet, sirloin, rib-eye with a selection of sauces.
 
 
Organic
 
Well, there's only one choice really if you want the steak on your plate approved by the soil association - The Royal Oak at Bishopstone.
 
One of the best pubs in the UK for food, their pan-fried rumps cost just a little more than usual but we can vouch that for shear taste alone the extra couple of quid is worth it.
 
 
Venison
 
A not just any steak, either! The White Horse at Winterbourne Bassett serves a 8oz Red Deer Venison steak reared on the Royal Great Park at Windsor.
 
Totally delish!
 
 
Veal
 
Not your usual thick piece of sirloin, but properly sourced and prepared, veal is a steak dish uniquely full of flavour - either grilled or fried.
 
The Italians do this the best and there's plenty of choice in Swindon.
 
 
And... something more extreme?
The Crown at Broad Hinton
 
Extreme Steak Night Swindon
How about you actually choose the cut of beef you want from a master butcher there in the restaurant, who then passes it on to the chef who cooks it right in front of you.
 
The Crown at Broad Hinton regularly hold what they call 'Extreme Steak Nights' with a prime choice of fillet, rump and sirloin on offer, all cut to the size and weight you decide.
 
Extreme Steak Night takes place on the first Thursday of every month. Book now to avoid disappointment!
