For the money, it's not a bad stay. We stayed for three nights. The pub food wasn't great unfortunately. The room was nice, few cobwebs but generally it was pretty clean. The major thing I would consider if you are a light sleeper is the rail way and traffic are quite noisy. The pub also receives deliveries in the morning... More

Very attentive staff in a quite rural setting. Very much enjoyed the food especially the fish dish was very well cooked and deliciously seasoned so well done chef! Would definitely be back. The floors in dinning room could be tidier but not a big deal

My husband and I stayed here fo 3 nights in oct, good value for money with clean comfortable room, alittle tired in places, breakfast very good, very friendly staff, dinners are basic but edible. Good links to most places by rail road or even on foot.

Good for a drink in the garden while waiting for a train but the food feels like microwaved ready meals rather than quality home cooked pub grub. On a busy summer's afternoon there were only two staff serving and on three occasions were we told that the kitchen had run out of something without any apology. Waited 40 minutes for... More

We met at the Swan for a family get-together - the food was excellent, (ESPECIALLY the battered fish!) and the service efficient, discreet and friendly. We were given a table in a quiet corner at our request and nothing was too much trouble - it was service with a smile all the way!Will definitely be back and will recommend this... More

I'd love the Swan to be a good place to eat. Fantastic location, great outdoor space, friendly welcoming staff but terribly let down by the quality of the food. I try it quite regularly in the hope for change but alas it never gets better. This week the battered fish was inedible. The Swan remains a good place for a... More

Well worth an overnight stop - we stayed after a day at Newbury Racecourse. We left the car at Thatcham Station in the morning (that is across the road from the Inn) and took the train to Newbury - only 6 minutes - returned later the same day. The Swann staff were friendly and informative on arrival. The room was... More

Accommodation is in a small block just across from this Marstons pub. The rooms themselves are small but prefectly formed. Reasonable bed, good bathroom and good facilities - including copious amounts of tea & coffee provisions; a welcome change from the parsimonious attitude of most places. Although it's literally across from the station on the main line, with level crossing... More
