Came here for lunch and ordered the burgers. We were really impressed. The burgers were excellent as expected from the £11.00 pricetag. Very nice salad and chips accompanied them. Along with 2 small cokes, the bill came to £28 which is on the high side for burgers.

Stayed here with my wife and was really pleased with every element of our stay. The staff in the bar that checked us were really pleasant and made check in seamless. Dinner was really tasty and there was a wide selection and really reasonably well priced. Breakfast was cooked fresh and tasty and plentiful. Looking forward to our next stay.

Went here with friends for Sunday lunch. We hadn't booked but they were able to accommodate us. We chose to sit in the bar as we felt it had more atmosphere. We had the two course for £12 menu and we weren't disappointed. My husband had liver and bacon and the rest of us had various roasts. There were about...

In particular I was impressed with the mirror which incorporated a digital clock and a...

We recently stayed for 3 nights in room 2. Very comfortable room and lovely bathroom. Staff were all very friendly. Very good breakfast choice. We dined in the pub the three evenings we were there. Good menu and very good food. Would recommend The Swan if you are in the area.

Good comfortable room, very clean, personally I thought the food was excellent and great value. By far the the best scrambled eggs for breakfast I've ever had! Had the chicken and chorizo risotto, perfect, then had had the faggots and mash, even better. My kind of food at the Swan Inn. Breakfast started at 7.30am but they offered to do...
