The Phoenex [sic] Bar, Royal Wootton Bassett, Wiltshire   1 comment

I claimed awhile back to have gone to every pub in RWB and no one corrected me to include the Phoenex (yes, that’s really how they spell it).  But, with my daily mileage and my weekly kebab behind me and a bus every twenty minutes, this seemed like the day to put things right.  The bar used to be the neighbourhood Workingman’s Club and you can still take advantage of the drink discounts by joining, but as this was just a quick one for rehydration purposes I deferred the membership for now.

A private party was being set up in the back room which was enormous and could probably hold 500 people safely.  The woman singing at the sound check had a great voice and Dave, the manager, told me later that she can be even louder once she gets rolling.  I, on the other hand, was mostly quiet with my pint of Carling and her private serenade as the soundtrack to some sloppily played international cricket (India v. Pakistan).

They’re open Monday-Thursday evenings, Fridays they close mid-afternoon, and all day on the weekends.  Go visit.
