Strawberry Thief, Swindon
Architect:Clark and Maslin
The first pub built by Arkells in 20 years, this light and airy spacious pub is one of Arkell’s biggest, with more than 400 seats as well as staff accommodation.
Designed to look like an old barn, natural materials have been used throughout, with solar panels on the roof for energy and an air source heat pump to heat the building. A large patio at the back provides views onto a vast expanse of open countryside. The large carpark includes several electric car charging points.
