If you would rather go out for a nice meal, why not try Rios Brazil, Swindon’s authentic Brazilian steakhouse. They follow the famous Rodízio (rotation) style service delivered to your table – it is quite the experience.

Once seated, Rios offers you food, service, and an amazing atmosphere, it’s hugely welcoming and popular with locals.

If you aren’t too full after your meal, why not wonder into Old Town for some of the best cocktails around at The Vault bar. The Vault gives customers the kind of vibe you would expect from a member’s only club, and that’s reflected in the décor, it’s sophistications and underground feel makes for an exciting change of scenery. For cocktails that impress, this is the place to be.
