We stayed in a double room at the frog of the hotel. It was unclean, the furnishings were tatty and worn out and the service was terrible. For the price - I would've expected a lot more. The staff were also indiscreet and rude. Dreadful experience!

Just stopped for tea.. burger and chips, well presented, tasty meal, great value..would go back for sure. You have to pay for parking, £2.00 for 3 hours but you get this money back. Menu has plenty on it for all tastes.

We went here for a Valentines meal. The restaurant was quite empty which was surprising as the meal was really good value (£20 for 3 courses including a free glass of wine ) . We were really pleased with the quality of the food . The rib eye steaks were particularly delicious as we're the desserts. Service was attentive and... More

We've been here a few times. The atmosphere is great, apart from in December as it's popular with large groups. The food is hit and miss. Burgers always seem to be nice. Steak not so much. I like my steak medium - it's only ever come rare or well done, so I won't bother again. I sent my steak back... More

We drove passed this pub whilst in Swindon, googled it and on their website they stated that they prided them selves on the food served. We stopped the car turned round and ventured in. Firstly we had a drink the white wine was very nice and served lovely and cold, although the glasses could have been a bit cleaner. So... More

Never been to this hotel before but will definately stay again. Room was comfortable, clean and just what you would want. Staff were friendly and helpful and always on hand if you needed anything or to answer any questions.

A number of us visited on a Saturday lunchtime. 4 of us ordered breakfast, the pub wasn't particularly busy. Three full English breakfasts arrived within 10 minutes. The presentation, size and taste was good, unfortunately the 4th breakfast never arrived. After chasing it up twice it arrived taking 40 minutes. It's not the fact that the breakfast was late, simply... More

Had lunch here this week during a trip to see some friends and family in Swindon. Meals were great, even the ones which were on offer at 2 for £10.50, which you'd normally expect to be cheaper and smaller. This is one of those genuine offers where you actually get some value for money. Great staff, fabulous old building, recommended... More

Very modern bar in an old,historic building.We stayed for a saturday night. We found the bar area to be really nice in the daytime and well used and lively in the evening.Our room was acceptable for the price we paid but it was well ready for a refurb.The breakfast in the morning was shocking, with hindsight we should have thrown...
