We stayed here last Saturday night and it lived up to the good reviews we had read beforehand. Friendly staff and locals, clean & spacious room and very good food. We ate in the pub for our evening meal and it was very nicely cooked and presented as was the cooked to order breakfast the next morning. Would definitely recommend... More

The Heart in Hand is a traditional pub in many ways but that should be seen as a plus. The decor is very traditional, I suspect the bar has been in place for many decades. Though the room I stayed in was a more modern cottagey feel but it had all you want and need. Comfy bed ,TV, biscuits (lol).... More

Lovely little spot, very friendly staff, am always welcomed back. The bar is small, but perfect for a bite to eat of proper home cooked food and decent beer. Great value for money. Thursday nights are a little noisy due to pub quiz, but join in and it is not a problem!!

Lovely village pub with a great atmosphere. Decent pub menu, though pretty standard but the food was excellent, as was the service. Reasonably priced too. Not a modern place but warm and welcoming. The landlord and the locals were all friendly and we would definitely stay here again.

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
