My wife and I were here for one night. The regular management were away and we met the owners mother, what a lovely lady !! She couldn't have done more to make our stay pleasurable. Breakfast was wonderful. I just wished we could have spent more time to appreciate the location.

The Jolly Tar has always been the place we go to celebrate special occasions and it is wonderful, unfortunately this year on 27th august we booked a table for 8pm for our wedding anniversary, we arrived at 7.50 and stood at the bar waiting to be served, two young lads were on bar duty in both sides of the pub,...

I've just come back from having dinner with friends here & although I have read a couple of troubling reviews about the landlord in particular I have to say I found this place to be very well presented. The lad behind the bar was lovely & very welcoming & the food was beautiful. Very tasty & very reasonable. I'm definitely...

The rooms are located to the rear of the village pub which are extremely clean, quiet and well equipped. The landlord Steve is very friendly and extremely accommodating. There is plenty of parking spaces. Our stay was very good value for the money. We would highly recommend the Jolly Tar for a base to explore nearby Cotswold towns and villages.

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...

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...
