Stayed for 1 night in Room 5 - The Courtyard. As soon as we checked in, we had to open the bedroom and bathroom window as the room was too hot. These had to be left wide open until checkout the next day. An upright fan was on also but the room was still baking. Nothing seemed to help in...

Visit the Tawny Owl every six months or so with friends. Always a friendly reception, great food and great value. This place could give many pubs a lesson in how to do things properly. ☆☆☆☆☆ well deserved. See you guys in September hopefully!

Visited with my friend and her 5 month old baby. The manager was very friendly and helpful, even when we ordered and asked to change fries for veg etc. The food was very nice and the portion was huge. Very good value for money!

Stayed at this place Sunday evening, what a lovely place. Rooms nicely decorated and clean with all you should need, e.g. ironing board, iron, trouser press and hairdryer, extra heater and fan. Lovely en-suite bathroom with Shampoo, conditioner and bath/shower gel, could not wish for better. In the morning we were presented with a beautiful full english breakfast by pleasant...

After hearing great things about the tawny owl, I visited for lunch today with my parents. We arrived a little after 3pm to a calm pub with lots of free tables. Our waiter took our drinks quickly and delivered these with no issue, it then all went down hill from there. After giving our food order we then waited 40...

Really cannot understand why this establishment has received any negative reviews.

The room was more...

I stayed one night in the Tawny Owl, it was a very comfortable stay. Very clean rooms, very comfortable bed. Good choice of dinner and breakfast Good location as it is very close to a nice park with access to fishing and ducks. Lots of cycle paths and safe running areas.
