Very apprehensive after reading some reviews but as a seasoned traveller was more than pleasantly surprised. Food more expensive than cheaper places but what value for money! Large portions plus cooked and presented well by very attentive and polite staff. Stayed the night in a clean and comfortable room after a afternoon family celebration. Before retiring we enjoyed the evening at the bar within a very friendly atmosphere, no signs of any problems and the locals all pleasant company. Met the Landlord approaching closing time who was polite in his query if we were staying the night and was the perfect host mixing with other drinkers until closing time. His friendly attitude continued next morning whilst serving an excellent breakfast. Over all I could not fault our stay and it was excellent value for money, a place we will definitely return to next time we are in Swindon. I would thoroughly recommend the Tawny Owl for its food and as a friendly local bar. Only comment would be it is difficult to find by the directions on the web site which could be reviewed.
