Steve C left this review about County Ground Hotel

The County Ground backs onto the car park of Swindon Town FC so it wasn’t surprising to find lots of Robin’s memorabilia adorning the walls. A sign on the exterior of the pub advertise an opening time of 10:30 but the doors were firmly closed when I walked by at 15:15. Thankfully on my return just after 16:00 the pub was open, and a couple of locals had already made themselves at home. An L shaped bar is in the left hand-side of the pub where a pool table, dartboard, table football and a jukebox are also found. The two televisions were off, but Sky Sports is advertised. I also spotted a sign for karaoke every Friday night. To the right of the bar is a long and thin seating area. Out the back is a covered smoking area. There are eight letting rooms that the Arkells website suggests are suitable for contractors. Unsurprisingly, on match days this is a ‘home fans only’ pub.
From the bar a standard keg range was available alongside Arkells 3B which was available on cask. Two other hand pumps were unused. The governor was polite, but I won’t be rushing back.

The County Ground is a large victorian pub next to Swindon towns football ground and also named after it.
Once inside there was one very large room that i noticed and this is an Arkells tied house,there were two real ales on the bar i had a drink of Arkells 3B and this was a decent drink the other beer was Arkells 2B.
The pub was fairly quiet on my visit as Swindon were away from home.
