We stayed one night. The room was basic but tidy. Our room was in the eaves. How my 6'3" husband didn't bang his head I don't know! The peculiar thing was to have a shower we had to kneel down in the bath as it was so low under the beams and it was a fixed shower. Who ever thought...

slightly busy but still a lovely well presented meal served very quickly by very pleasant staff reasonably priced unrushed and dispite the fact they were busy there was minimal disruption from the other diners which included a lot of children

We stayed here one night with friends to catch up with some overseas visitors. Our room was small but comfortable, I appreciated the kettle but not the rubbish shower. The Swan is right near the train station, so very convenient for travel from London. There is also lots of parking available. The food in the restaurant is varied and interesting.

We stayed overnight and were very comfortable. We were on the ground floor in the converted stable. Yes the room was on the smaller side, but it`s just for sleeping in and it was cosy and warm. It was also very clean and I was impressed with the bathroom especially the shower area which was very well kept. The steam...

Will not be staying at the Swan again. The room was small but to be fair had everything we needed. The bathroom looked good at first glance but looking down, the pipes round the toilet and sink also the central heating pipes and the skirting boards were very dirty. The noise through the night from the plumbing woke me up...

I've been a regular visitor to The Swan for the past 20 years or so and can honestly say that this place continues its downward spiral.. The last visit was with my family and another family for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. The service behind the bar was poor with a miserable woman who clearly had better things to do...

Only problem we had was the thunderstorm on the first night which caused lots of problems and the kitchen had to close, but the staff ordered us a...

It's a pub serving pub grub The pub wasn't very welcoming and felt dirty. The service is order at the bar so you would think the waitresses who just deliver the food would be quite relaxed and smiley but no ... Miserable faces and had no clue. I ordered a chicken burger with no tomato, the bar person confirmed, the...

The accomodation at The Swan is situated next to the pub in the old stable block. The rooms are smallish but clean and well furnished,although a little dark due to the small windows. They have comfortable beds and the bathroom we had was light and well laid out with a bath/shower combination. I am over 6ft tall, so had to...
