Excellent Village Pub B & B
Nobody is perfect but The Jolly Tar is pretty close.
It is a family run pub with very friendly staff, good quality, food, beer and rooms. It has a large car park is in a quiet location and even has friendly locals. Wheelchair access is ideal as the rooms are ground level though my shower room was not wheelchair friendly. Plenty of hot water and room heating.
I stay away a lot and always look forward to visiting. In case your wondering, I do not receive any benefit from saying this!
Excellent Village Pub
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 park, mine had a high exposed roof adding character to a well designed, clean and comfortable well equipped room. My en-suite shower room was not the biggest but entirely adequate. Plenty of hot water and heating. I would imagine that due to their location the rooms will not be stifling hot in summer either. The menu is not extensive but has a good selection of generous and well cooked and presented portions. It is an Arkells pub with three of their real ale beers, all three perfectly served. Breakfast is a expensive at £10 but is excellent quality. The pub is in the centre of Hannington which is a small village just outside of Swindon off the Highworth Road. Far enough away to be perfectly peaceful. Easy to find and plenty of parking. I stayed on a Monday and enjoyed chatting to several friendly villagers and Chris the barman who was unusually for these days extremely genuinely welcoming and friendly.
I very much look forward to my next visit.
