Helen Browning's Royal Oak, Swindon
Going back!!!
Comfortable room, fine for a couple of nights (would be a bit pushed for space/luggage for longer). Fresh milk available in a shared seating lounge area off the courtyard for tea/coffee in rooms. The village is very pretty and in a great area for walking. We slept well in the comfortable bed. Both dinner and breakfast were great - the quality of the food we excellent (as was the honey beer!) and portions were generous. The staff were friendly and we felt very welcome- the tongue in cheek humour suits us though we gather not everyone. Next time we are even vaguely in the area this would be our accommodation of choice.

Very Good8.0
Nice place to stay
Our stay was perfect as we booked one night initially but it was that nice we stayed an extra night. Sandwiches and breakfast was amazing. Would stay again.

A warm welcome
Really good place Throughout our stay staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful. A real sense that they enjoy looking after people. Food throughly enjoyable - crunchy lamb and tartare sauce and BBQ pulled pork and pork belly with green sauce and chard. This isn't fine dining, but good ingredients carefully cooked in a relaxed chilled vibe. Room was individually decorated and quiet. We would certainly go again (and probably will).

Fantastic hotel stay
Such a charming little hotel. I was made to be made very welcome from the moment I arrived to the moment I left. It was lovely that the staff could tell me interesting facts about the hotel and the farm. I really enjoyed my stay and will defo go back some time.
