Overnighted with a late booking- cracking supper, outstanding breakfast. Must be one of the last remaining bastions of proper pub. Comfortable , clean - a classic. Owner and all very friendly even to Yanks :) Don't bother with the chain hotels nearby stay at this pure gem in the heart of the UK countryside.

This is going to be a quite negative review, and that's a big shame. We were so impressed with our double room on first viewing; it was spacious, well furnished, clean and comfortable. The view from our room at the front of the pub was amazing. Even though the room was directly over the bar, we found it quiet and... More

This is a proper pub. Don't be put off by the Sky Sports in the bar, or the healthy drinking trade at evening opening time - it's what a pub ought to be - packed with atmosphere, with an outgoing friendly landlord, and decent pub food. The accommodation is clean and comfortable, of a good standard. It's not a restaurant... More

Popped into the Heart in hand for lunch whilst staying at the Blunsdon House Hotel. I would echo the previous reviews; we could not have been made more welcome. The landlord was great - really chatty and friendly and genuinely pleased to have us there (even though we were really noisy!). Lunch was great, just nice pub food, tasty, piping... More

We have just returned from a lovely stay at this cozy friendly hotel. The room was spotless and the owners were so welcoming. Beautiful breakfast prob the best we have had. Will defo be returning. Had drinks downstairs in the pub in the evening and all the locals were also really friendly and the landlord had a cracking voice.

It is many years since I experienced the warm welcome received in this gem of a local pub. From the minute my friend and I walked through the doors there was a friendly rapport from the staff and customers alike so that we felt like we'd always known them. Sadly the cloning of pubs and indifferent management has contributed to... More

We stayed in this little village pub for two nights, We were made very welcome by the owners and its customers. The room was very clean and the food was excellent. We would not hesitate to stay here again when we re-visit the area.

The road layout has changed in recent years so my somewhat older satnav led me on quite a merry dance trying to find this place! Follow the signs for the village of Blunsdon and you'll get there a lot quicker! From the outside it looks like a typical village pub. Indeed, it is a village pub, but that's no bad... More
