Standing in pride of place
The Tawny Owl at Taw Hill, north Swindon first spread its wings to welcome new customers for the first time on 23 November 2003.
And now after thirteen years of welcoming thousands of locals and visitors through its doors, Arkell's 103rd pub now stands proudly at the heart of the Taw Hill community.
Managed by Laura Edwards, the pub prides itself on being the best in the area for food and atmosphere no matter what the season or weather.
Arkells, a family brewer since 1843, have also added a number of new external features designed for the added enjoyment of customers including an amphitheatre outside, a waterwheel and stream plus a purpose-built children's play area.
