We stayed at the Swan for two nights before heading to the Dorset steam fair. First impressions were a little uncertain due to the busy A36 being right outside and the car park being on the opposite side of the road. If you have children with you keep an eye on them. Once inside though it's obvious that the Swan... More

Lovely riverside garden which the Weather would not let use enjoy. Ideal for visiting Salusbury, Bath, Stonehenge, New Forest etc. Good choice for breakfast continent and cooked. All day menu has good choice... More

We stayed at the swan on the 24th of this month, it's a great little place set by a main road but this does not effect your stay, the staff are great very helpful, the room was not large but clean and well layed out. When booking the room you get breakfast as part of the price which is great,... More

Just got back after breaking down outside this inn. We decided to eat whilst waiting for the rac and the food was really good. The staff were amazing and even though we were there for 4hrs - not a good advert for the rac! - they were really accommodating and could not do enough to help. 5 stars

We stayed at The Swan for one night this week as we were attending a meeting in Salisbury early the following morning. We travelled down fro Sheffield after work so didn't arrive until after 8p. We found the inn with no problems and there was plenty of space to park. Check in is at the bar and the lady that... More

Thank you for your nice review and I am glad we managed to satisfy such an age range! We are pleased you enjoyed your meal. I am a tad disappointed that you did not enjoy your buffalo burger. They are our most popular burger, partly because they are healthier than the usual meat. As they are reared locally near Stockbridge,... More

I had a most wonderful stay, wish I had more time at The Swan! The place is very clean and accommodating, with spectacular service and food! And the garden by the river has indeed swans gliding by, to complete the picture of a heart melting sunset, if you're lucky to get the perfect weather I got. But u'll also enjoy... More

From arriving to leaving the staff could not have been more friendly or helpful. Our room was clean and comfortable. Plenty of choice for evening meal, and the breakfast was excellent. We will definitely stay there again when next in the area.

This is quite a pleasant pub, situated alongside a busy road, which also offers rooms to let. The service received during our one night stay was very good and the evening meal and breakfast was well presented and of good quality. The Spanish waitress serving in the bar and dining room was charming and attentive. Our main whinge was the... More

Thank you for your review. I am sorry your particular room did not overlook the river garden and that you expected something bigger than a double bed which is what our double rooms sport unless it states differently. I am afraid that the design of our building means that not every en suite can have a window. I am delighted... More
