Relaxed atmosphere and fairly priced lunchtime sarnies. We were out in the garden, as it was a lovely , sunny day- if we had been asked if we wanted more drinks, I think we would have bought another two rounds, if they were brought to us- like in a European bar. We were so engrossed in our conversations that we... More

The landlord and his son run a very welcoming establishment. The home cooked food is delicious. A very varied choice and excellent value. The service was first class and very friendly. Would highly recommend a visit there for lunch or dinner.

The rooms were a good size, clean and with a pleasant outlook. The bed was comfortable. The food was very tasty and with ample portions. My only concern was that I couldn't get the water in the shower to run hot and had to have a strip wash and use a glass tumbler to wash my hair. When I queried... More

The family that run this place are really helpful and friendly. The beer and food are both very good and plentiful. The prices are good although I'd rather have paid another 10-20 pounds and got decent facilities. The reason for an average mark was purely down to the room. We stayed in the twin room. Unfortunately it was very tired... More

We came here via tripadvisor recommendation. Having negotiated by car the endless new office developments (albeit nicely landscaped), roads and roundabouts enveloping Swindon, it was a relief to re-enter traditional Wiltshire. Blunsdon, where urban and rural meet, would be a worthwhile place to live. There are extensive countryside views to the west, with birdsong rather than traffic hum the rule.... More

“If you want to choose a good room, make sure your stay does not coincide with a quiz night or similar. Also, and this is essential, make sure they've got their major plumbing issues sorted out.”
