Heard good things about this place and popped in for lunch. We were not disappointed. Staff were very friendly and efficient. Nice pint and excellent light lunch although we looked enviously at the main lunch dishes being served. It's clean and very airy and in a really nice location. Will certainly be back. Highly recommended.

Lovely room, with all the facilities required. Of all the hotels in the world that I've stayed in, this breakfast was definitely in the top 3. Friendly bar and locals. Dog friendly bar & accomodation too.

We took two guests to The Swan for Sunday lunch. We were impressed. Although busy, which is of course a good sign, the service was timely and very friendly. The food, however, was really great. One if our guests, who had the roast beef, said that it was the best Sunday lunch he'd ever had in a pub/restaurant. The decor... More

We were staying locally and had been out walking with the dogs all day. At first glance we weren't sure whether the dogs would be allowed in-looks very posh from the outside and peeping through the door. However.....glad we asked because not only were they welcome in the bar area but they supplied a bowl of clean doggie water and... More

This pub is undergoing a big refurbishment and looks to be moving much more up market. The work to the building looks good so far but the new menu is a bit limited and promises more than it delivers. The sandwiches are ok but the bread, although good, is thick cut making them difficult to eat. Chips seem to come... More

Had a lovely time, very relaxing , cosy fire, friendly staff and excellent food! We ate both nights of our stay in the restaurant as it was so good. Close to Malvern Hills for walks. All in all highly recommend for a short break.

Firstly the staff are very friendly and helpful when dealing with us and have taken care to provide a suitable table, light and warmth etc. Being elderly mother has eaten from the childrens menu and this...

I stayed here for just one night, a Saturday evening. I and a colleague eat in the restaurant ordering a fillet steak and it was cooked so well, almost perfect. The room was clean and comfortable but the TV was so small (12" approx). The bathroom again was clean and well appointed but slightly tricky with the shower as the... More

Staying at the Caravan & Camping Site do walked the mile to this pub, and we were delighted we did. Very well mannered staff, lovely little Pub with a great selection if Wines. Food was superb. We went for Lamb and Duck. Beautifully presented and even better tasting. Highly recommend and shall revisit for sure. Very well priced!
