Great place to stay. I have to stay away on business and I have found somewhere which is a fantastic stopover. Comfortable bed, lovely room and incredible value. Breakfast was freshly cooked from scratch. Delicious. Great coffee and a good range of breakfast cereals and fruit/yogurt. My evening meal was also excellent. Fresh, nicely cooked ingredients. A cut above normal... More

I had booked a rally experience for my boyfriend’s 30th birthday and I wanted to find a nice place to stay for us and 2 other family members and found the Jolly Tar. What a find it was!

Wonderful room with a lot of attention to detail, very clean and I slept like log in the comfy bed. The food was delicious and good value, including the breakfast. The setting was lovely and the owners were very helpful and friendly. it was further from Swindon than I would have liked but I would say worth the distance.

Having visited the Jolly Tar for a Sunday Roast a few weeks ago with just my husband, we enjoyed the food and atmosphere so much we decided to book a table to go back with a group of friends. It is by far the nicest Sunday Roast we have had in the Swindon/Cirencester area. Staff are friendly and accommodating and... More

Just don't go! Four of us went for Sunday lunch today. The writing was on the wall when I booked a week ago. I asked for a table at 1pm. They said they could only do 12.45pm. I almost laughed but accepted the pedantic 15 minute earlier time. We arrived at the earlier time. We bought drinks on arrival at... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal yesterday. We had a warm welcome from the Bar Manager; the menu offered good choice and the food was very good. All in all, a very good and enjoyable experience. We will return.

Went for my birthday meal, last time we visited was in the late 90's so it was a while ago, the place was completely different before and had a modern feel to the new dining area. Menu is not vast but catered for everyone on the table, the steaks are lovely as too was the steak and ale pie. If... More

I've just had a very nice stay here with my sisters. My room (I had the largest with bath instead of shower) was very attractive, clean and comfortable - great value at £50. The only thing I would have liked was a better mirror in the bathroom for putting my makeup on in the morning but it's a small thing.... More

On a cold Monday evening, stopping for just one night of a long trip. we were delighted to be met with log fires, hot bath and really efficient central heating. Since this is a pub in a tiny village the place was quiet, but once we'd tasted the food we weren't surprised to find that almost all the rest of... More
