H&W is a new contemporary pub designed by Mackenzie Wheeler and built by the west country brewers, Hall & Woodhouse, to serve the town of Wichelstowe, a new town of 4,500 houses infilling the land between Swindon and the M4. The pub is one of very few contemporary pubs to be built in the country for many years and follows the success of another H&W pub in Portishead, near Bristol.

H&W in Wichelstowe offers a grand bar, coffee shop, lounge and dining areas arranged along the canal bank with wide external terraces sheltered under an oversailing roof canopy. This roof is dramatically articulated to suggest a series of canal side boathouses and workshops, alluding to Swindon’s industrial heritage. 

The roof structure defines a variety of internal and external public spaces and is formed from a steel and oak frame, using much reclaimed material, that gives all the spaces a warm, tactile and comfortable atmosphere that is an essential element of the British pub. The wide range of spaces, facilities, food and drink that the pub offers, together with its warm and welcoming architectural form, has created an enormously popular focus for the growth of the new community of Wichelstowe.
