The food was promptly delivered and was perfectly nice though nothing spectacular. The portions aren’t overly large and at £14.50 for what was basically a chicken wrap and £7 for a normal size glass of wine it’s not somewhere I’ll be rushing back to. Nothing...More

Beautiful Pub with decent food. The burger was delicious, and they have a wide variety of gin, which I am rather fond of.

We spent a truly wonderful couple of nights at The Swan Inn. Idyllic location, ample parking, beautiful internal decor, friendly staff and excellent food. Neither the accommodation or food is cheap; but you really do get what you pay for. Lovely indoor pool and spa,...More

I ordered rotisserie chicken with harissa potatoes and corn on the cob and was given half a small chicken with lightly roast potatoes with 3x mini corn in a small enamelled roasting tin, food wasn’t hot only just warm. Cost £16.50! Very disappointed.

Third time here for my birthday celebration with family. Having not visited since the refurbishment, It was pleasing to see the improvements made on the hotel. The grounds of the hotel were immaculate as always. Nice little nature trail for the kids and a park....More

Great location at foot of Windermere. Great place for a drink on the river front (weather permitting of course).

Disappointed in lunch today, we ordered sandwiches which were over £8 each, they were so basic, sliced bread, four little triangles, some vegetable crisps and a pile of plain rocket! Leaves, nothing else! Expensive sandwiches! Very disappointed.

My wife and I have dined here a few times (would be a lot more if I lived closer) and we come here for a treat on special occasions. We have never been disappointed with any aspect of the Swan’s food, service, atmosphere or aesthetics...More

The Swan does cater for such parties but you have to pre-book and preferably pre-order from the Christmas and childrens menus to avoid delays. I would also suggest that you avoid the peak times (1-2pm & 6-8pm) on Sat & Sun... More
