Fabulous 8.8 From 70 reviews

The Red Lion, Swindon
Red Lion was a great pub/hotel. Charming location, great food, nice staff.
A Traveler, us1 night trip
The Red Lion, Swindon
Lovely staff... nice enough room I guess.
I think the customer reviews are perhaps a little misleading, however, the staff are lovely and (If you're on a 'jolly') there's probably no better place to stay in this area. It's the little things I picked up on (I'm OCD) that annoyed me a little. The glaring green hue from the detector is a pain. The cafetiere had not been cleaned properly, nor the kettle emptied as one might expect from the previous boarding. The stairs are steep into the block of rooms and you may struggle if you're not so spritely as you were once were. The TV is a postage stamp (not that I'm massively fussed about that)... but, on the plus side: The breakfast tray was nice enough and the selection of local ales was great!

Traditional English pub
Traditional English pub with rooms in adjoining building and restaurant in main building. Brewery on site so good range of hand pull beers. Good location for Thames Path and Cotswolds

A gem of a find
This gastro pub with accommodation is a great place. The rooms are spacious, well furnished and comfortable. The food is freshly cooked to order and we'll presented. The portions are generous without being overwhelming. There is a brewery in site, and a variety of home brewed beers are available in the bar. This pub is family run and all members of staff are friendly and helpful. Circulars has a good selection of shops and a few places to eat if you wish to eat out.
