Lovely quaint pub with great food provided by welcoming and hospitable landlord and staff. Dinner was excellent and breakfast definitely worth having. We had the smallest room having booked at very short notice but it was comfortable, clean and modern. If only every pub deal was this good. We will return.

Room Tip: We stayed in the smallest room called Captain Pugwash which is ideal for a single person but a tad c...

We stayed a couple of nights at the Jolly Tar in early June. Great spot to be based in respect of places to visit/explore within a few miles. Far more than that, however, is the quality of accommodation, service and food at the pub. Steve, Leigh and their staff go out of their way to make you feel comfortable, welcome and at ease: nothing is too much trouble. Leigh's culinary skills are superb, and the pub generally has a lovely atmosphere, with the locals very warm and friendly. Our room was clean and comfortable, and the whole experience a real treat. And our visit coincided with the Grand Launch of the (first?) Water Feature. We were truly privileged!

Room Tip: Can't imagine there's much between them, and so - all fine!

Stayed here for two nights with my husband 16th and 17th of May. Lovely place. Great banter with the locals and Steve and his wife. Rooms were very welcoming and comfortable. Food was excellent and nothing is too much trouble. This is definately on our list of places to visit regularly from now on. Highly recommended!

We went on a Sunday night and were the only people in the lounge bar for over an hour. The food was very good and the ales also excelled. Service was fine and friendly staff/landlord.
The steaks are a bit pricier than normal for the area but you can taste the difference. A bit expensive for regular visits however defineately worth a visit every couple of months.

Stayed a night at the Jolly Tar while on a walking weekend around the Cotswolds. Room very clean, comfortable and tastefully decorated. Warmly welcomed by the host, made to feel relaxed and at home from the minute we arrived. We had warm chicken Caesar salad with anchovies and cod wrapped in Parma ham, which was delicious. And in the morning we were going to have a light Continental breakfast as there were some lovely fruit yoghurt pots and other breakfast fare already arranged on the buffet, but we were persuaded to go for the full English as well and were not at all disappointed, as it was perfectly cooked and presented.
Overall a night in a lovely little hostelry in a quiet village in a lovely area, one not to be missed if you are visiting here.

I was travelling on business and spent 2 nights there. It was perfect and very affordable. Thank you to Steve for his kindness and allowing me to stay in the lounge working away, although it was supposed to be closed for afternoon break. The food cooked by his wife is delicious, and the wine list is very interesting and unexpected. Would absolutely stay there on next trip if opportunity arises. Too bad the weather was not good because the patio is lovely. Room was large and warm.
