Just returned from our second stay at the Black Swan (we reserve it for treats!) and it was as lovely as the last time. Very welcoming staff, a comfortable lounge for an afternoon glass of wine and an absolutely superb tasting menu for dinner. The food was out of this world (we were told that they have a young French...

We had a really enjoyable stay especially as we had our dog with us. The only thing that let us down was breakfast in bed, which we were really looking forward to. We waited till 9.45 for breakfast to come only to be let down. We then had to rush getting ready to make breakfast down stairs before it closed....

The staff are very professional and attentive. Avoid a room at the rear of the hotel until all the building works have been finished otherwise you look...

The Hotel is a relaxing place almost set back in a Victorian age. The staff could not be more attentive. However, the chips are not chips but mashed potatoes fried in lard. Definable for a weirdos acquired taste! Chips are chips? At The Black Swan they're some ponced up chef's idea of what HE wants to serve. Otherwise you will...
