Visited for a family birthday meal. Service was excellent, very customer centric and welcoming. Food was sublime, great selection, well prepared and presented. A gold star and definitely going to visit again - I'd heartedly recommend it

My stay was great ! Nice hotel with a delicious breakfast. Fantastic pub, perfect for dinner. (Try the "Iron flat sirloin steak". You won't regret it.) The rooms are a little bit small but very cosy and very confortable. The host is very friendly, loving socializing.

Booked and arrived quite late and was given a quaint little room which was really warm, spotlessly clean and very modern. Bathroom was again clean and exactly what I needed at the end of a long journey. Very affordable and most welcoming staff. will definitely visit again.

Had a Sunday roast - a choice of 3 meats. It tasted lovely with lots of vegetables and extra gravy and then had a lovely selection of pudding and cheeses to choose from. Friendly and welcoming staff. Lovely fire going and a good atmosphere.

Went here with my young lady for an evening meal. Only a couple of other parties in as it was midweek. Steak dinner finished we retreated to sit next to the fire. She had her arm round the lower part of my back and gave me a peck on the cheek. Nothing wrong with that, happens the world over. The... More

The Jolly Tar is pretty much the perfect Village Pub. My last visit was many years ago when I lived in Swindon and it was a good pub in those days and it has only got better. I have stayed in many hotels pubs and B&B's and this place suits me perfectly. The rooms are converted outbuildings opposite the car... More

We have just spent 2 nights at The Jolly Tar in Hannington. We booked this pub due to its location to a family wedding reception. A great find, our room was located in what appeared to be renovated out buildings. Beautiful accommodation, everything needed was there, great shower over the bath with fantastic pressure. The pub offered dining which we... More

Lamb roast - Over cooked thick sliced lamb, small very crisp roasted potatoes, burnt Yorkshire pud and water like gravy. Ministrone Veggie option - Thicker and more tasty in... More
