Al Fresco August at Arkell's 

Make the most of the summer evenings with food and drinks at these managed pubs - WIN A MEAL FOR 4 WITH DRINKS
With the super late-July weather we've had so far in Swindon, is there anything better than a fantastic pub garden, an ice cold lager, chilled glass of wine and a mouth-watering menu right in front of you.
We don't think so!
That's why this August we've again teamed up with Arkells Brewery to offer you the chance to enjoy food and drink at The Kingsdown in Stratton.
All places you can dine al fresco in the sunshine or shade this month and enjoy a very social evening on us. 
Here's where to choose from: 
The Kingsdown, Upper Stratton
New decking for dining & drinking
Kingsdown patio
Located in Upper Statton, the new-look Kingsdown with its 'secret' garden & brand-new garden decking is ideal for enjoying a bite to eat in the summer sun. Plus, with the Brewery just a stone's throw away - the perfect pint is all but guaranteed!
The Saracen's Head Hotel, Highworth
Saracens Head, Highworth
The Saracen's is one of Arkell's oldest pubs and well-known for its good pub food. Its rear terrace also faces just the right way to catch the heat of the sun but with plenty of canopies to stay nice and cool for sipping and serving lunchtime lite bites & English classics in the evening.
The Angel Hotel, Wootton Bassett
The Angel Hotel in Royal Wootton Bassett sources much of its food locally, and when the sun's out, its well kept courtyard terrace makes the ideal place to enjoy a tipple and a nibble. Expect food that's generous and unpretentious and available all day.
The Sun Inn, Swindon
With its large garden and inviting playground, The Sun Inn is the ideal place to dine al fresco with the family this summer. And with the beautiful surroundings of Coate Water within touching distance, The Sun Inn also makes the ideal rest stop after a long afternoon stroll.
The Runner, Swindon
The Runner on Wootton Bassett Road in Swindon underwent a complete transformation a couple of years ago, and its garden and terrace is just made for summer. You'll find a covered patio area overlooking the meandering River Ray below, so it's no wonder that al fresco dining at The Runner is proving such a popular pastime for lunch-breakers, families and couples alike.
The Tawny Owl, Swindon
The Tawny Owl offers everything you'd expect from a modern pub - good food, a wide selection of drinks, entertainment and a nice place inside and out to enjoy them. Its garden terrace provides the perfect summer space to savour their excellent food incl. tapas.
The Riverside, Lechlade
With the River Thames to look on to and pub food menu full of all the starters, mains and desserts we all like, it's hard to beat The Riverside when the sun's out. May we even recommend hiring a boat from the pub too and making a real day of it on the water.
Win an Al Fresco meal for 4
with drinks
We've teamed up with Arkell's to offer the chance to enjoy an Al Fresco meal for four with drinks and food to the value of 80 at the new-look Kingsdown in Stratton.
