The Tawny Owl, Swindon
Rock and Roll bingo
A pleasant and warm welcome from the staff with a very friendly atmosphere, room was spotless and the food was exceptional for pub cuisine. Disappointing, they don't sell Gunness, only the breweries own version.

Very good beer and coffee
Very good beer and coffee. Plenty of parking. Evening meal of chicken and potatoes was far too much potatoes and not enough chicken. Terrible wi-fi. The kitchen fans came on intermittently during the night and gave out a persistent deep hum, which was enough to wake me. I did mention this at reception and was told they were investigating so perhaps not a problem any more. Breakfast doesn't open until 7:30 and wasn't cooked until 7:50, which was much too late for me.
