North Swindon District Centre, Thamesdown Drive, Swindon SN25 4BG
JJB is in a great location, with easy access from the A419. I use the gym a few times a week. This is one of the better gyms I have been to.
The staff on reception are friendly and helpful.
There is enough equipment so you don’t need to queue - apart from on a Monday when it seem to be busy and everyone seems to want to be on the treadmills…
They have all of the usual equipment, x-trainer, treadmill, wave machine, free weights, etc. Plus a pool with 2 jacuzzi’s and a steam room. The only thing missing is a sauna.
They have a range of classes - the only one I have attended is spinning (which is very popular and gets booked up in advance), but they do aerobics, legs, bums and tums, step… The only thing missing is circuits, which is a very popular class and I have to go elsewhere to do this. There is a running club which sets off once a week(I think) from the club.
There is loads of parking as it is in the orbital centre (with the big asda).
Never really had any problems with the club, apart from the odd time when water heater has broken or a machine needs fixing. Having been a member for over a year I think this is quite good going.
7-9 Church Street, Tetbury, Gloucestershire GL8 8JG
The Blue Zucchini is based in central Tetbury, near the town hall.
They serve wonderfully tasty food. I can highly recommend the prawn and pea risotto.
Have eaten here a few times and also you can also just go in for a drink.
Staff always happy and friendly. Service is good and quick. Food arrived in good time and was very tasty.
We didn’t feel rushed to leave once we had finished our meal and you can always move to the bar area for some more drinks once you have finished.
I used to get confused with their opening hours, some nights they would be open and other nights they would be closed. However I think they have new owners now and it seems to be open consistently.
Lovely atmosphere, always seems buzzing and I would suggest booking on a weekend as it always seems full when we eat there.
Market Place, Tetbury, Gloucestershire GL8 8DD
The Snooty Fox is a hotel/bar based in Tetbury town centre.
I have never stayed in the hotel rooms, although having gotten lost looking for the toilets they look like they would be pretty nice.
I do however visit the bar/restaurant on a fairly regular basis.
Whenever in Tetbury this is the pub I seem to end up having a drink in. The staff are friendly and there is a lovely atmosphere. When you enter there is a bar to the left where you can sit and have a drink. There is also an area to the right, with a lovely fireplace and board games if you fancy having a go. This section is lovely on a cold winters night.
You can also go through to the back and have a drink/meal. There is a more formal restaurant at the very back - think they also use this for functions as have seen a Christmas party going on before.
There is a resident dog - a Great Dane - he is so friendly. As you can imagine it is a dog friendly pub, so people can bring the family pet along for a drink too…
My only complaint is that you used to be able to buy nibbles from the bar - crisps, nuts etc and they have stopped doing these. I went in last week and was a bit disappointed as the nuts that they used to serve were covered in a chilli coating and were really yummy!
Lovely place for a quiet drink in the centre of Tetbury.
10 Bishops Walk, Cirencester, Gloucestershire GL7 1JH
I agree it is a legendary club in Cirencester but it is a dive all the same. It costs about £6 for entry - more than clubs in UK cities! This is probably becuase of a lack of competetion. People only come here because there is nowhere else to go after pub hours or with music (not that the music is worth a visit). With the arrival of 17 blacks this may be set to change.
Drinks cost a fortune. You aren’t allowed to wear trainers, even though it has plenty of chavs already in there.
They have the classy attraction of 'The Cage’. You can get in and 'dance’, but the dance floor is so tiny you would just feel a fool…
Lots of very young people go here but at the same time you have some oldies too.
If you’re in Cirencester and want a night out, you will probably end up here. Just don’t prepare yourself for anything special - lots of alcohol would have to be drunk before I would visit nowadays!
1 Brewery Court, Cricklade Street, Cirencester, Gloucestershire GL7 1JH
Costa Coffee is one of the chains of coffee shops. It is in central Cirencester.
Nice place to come for a cup of tea. They serve tea (herbal and english breakfast), coffee, chocolate, cold drinks etc.
The hot chocolate doesn’t disappoint. They top it up with loads of squirty cream and marshmallows. The english breakfast tea is also really nicely brewed.
You can buy lunch here, although I think it is a bit pricey for what it is. Panini’s and sandwiches are both available and they do a nice looking selection of cakes at the counter.
Plenty of space for sitting down and prams easily fit, in fact it seems to fill up with prams in a lunch break. Great if you are bringing children along….
Does lack a bit of atmosphere, as do lots of chain cafes. But if you can get a window seat it is great for people spotting as it is situated on the main street in Cirencester town centre.
61a Cricklade Street, Cirencester, Gloucestershire GL7 1HY
Bomfords is in central Cirencester. I have visited many times and I have to say I think the quality and service has gone down over the last couple of years.
It is a delicatessen along with a sandwich bar and you can sit in for food or a drink (although I think there is a rule that you have to order food over the lunch time period).
You can come in here and pick up a sandwich/baguette/jacket potato. They have a choice of fillings from cheese, tuna, ham, and lots of other interesting fillings which I haven’t gotten around to trying. The choice is good and it’s fresh so the taste should be really good. However I am never very impressed. They always put too much butter in the baguettes and service doesn’t often come with a big friendly smile.
The cafe side is average too. There are tables outside which is lovely in the summer to relax and do a spot of people watching. The food is nice, but not really nice. There service is fairly slow but you get there eventually.
It always seems quite busy at lunch time so maybe it’s just not to my taste, just seems fairly average.
35 Castle Street, Cirencester, Gloucestershire GL7 1QD
The Rajdoot restaurant in Cirencester is a high class Indian restaurant which sells a good mix of freshly prepared Indian food. It is very popular with local people and has had this great reputation for many years. To do this it has produced a consistently good standard of food for consumption on or off the premises. The key to do this is in what appear to be good fresh produce. The taste of the individual spices and flavourings come through in all the dishes and give a very good initial taste and an excellent after taste. The curries are all cooked as one would expect and not watered down to an ‘english’ curry style – good if you know what to expect.
Bristol BS48 3DP
Bristol airport is located out of the city centre. It is easy locate (from the east of Bristol anyway).
It is quite a small airport, this can only be a good thing in my opinion. The queues for check in are always pretty quick to get through and because of the size you don’t need to worry about which terminal you’re flying from etc.
There are plenty of companies offering car parking, so you will probably find it cheaper than parking on site.
Once inside you will find a range of shops and cafes. WHSmiths for your magazines and books, boots, places to change your money…. It has everything you need, but won’t take very long to get around.
Lots of new routes now fly from Bristol so you really can’t go wrong.
2 Black Jack Street, Cirencester, Gloucestershire GL7 2AA
This is my favourite cafe in Cirencester.
It has the cosy feeling that a cafe should have, a lovely atmosphere here.
There is a shop at the front selling coffee, teas, chocolates, buiscuits etc. It is a little bit pricey and some of the things you can find elsewhere for cheaper.
The cafe at the back is the gem of this place. I was in two minds as to write a review as I am not sure I want it to get busier….
The food is wonderful. They have a fairly limited selection but of the choice you have it all tastes lovely.
Seating is limited, although there is an outside area at the back. In summer this is lovely as it is not overlooked and little birds fly in and out of the garden.
I can’t rate this place highly enough, you have to try it!

Dan Bailey Building Services is a Malmesbury based company who specialise in small building works but with a difference – they actually turn up for work and do what you ask at an agreed price and completion date. We had a small patio built and the service was impeccable. The work started at exactly the time they stated and was completed before they left site. Dan himself came along to check progress and made several visits to ensure that the workmanship was still OK even when it was complete so quality was very good. On our recommendation to another neighbour, they also used him for a similar job, with very good results.
