We choose the Bull and Swan when visiting Stamford as we are a family of five including three very hungry young men and good inn food works for us as opposed to more formal fine dining. However we appreciate good quality rooms and food presentation and were not disappointed. Firstly the rooms which were very spacious and characterful. With sloping... More

Met up with a friend half way between our respective homes. The food was reasonable though comparatively overpriced in our view. We ate a pulled pork nap with skinny fries and coleslaw which was £12:50 - felt quite a lot for a small lunch considering some of the the other local alternatives but it was tasty.

Very good welcome on arrival. We were early, but able to get into our room and leave our things before the 5 minute walk up into town. We had the Stag room - very clean, very quirky (not quite sure about the antler lamp stands, though!) and a glorious bathroom with rainfall shower and freestanding claw foot bath. A good... More

Searching for a dog friendly pub in Stamford I came across the Bull and Swan. My wife and I visited on a Friday with our dog and enjoyed a lovely lunch together. The weather that day was warm enough to eat outside but the staff confirmed we could also have sit inside had we wanted. Lovely lunch, would definitely eat... More

We certainly are a dog friendly pub and that is something that we are very proud to advertise As with any guests who book an outside table with us, we always try to have a back up indoor option should our lovely but unpredictable English weather take a turn for the worse at the last minute. I look forward to... More

We stayed overnight at the Bull and Swan. We were upgraded from what is going to become the laundry room to the Isaac Newton room. It is highly recommended. A lovely spacious room including a stone fireplace with wood burning stove. Very nice I imagine for winter evenings. A king size bed which is very confortable. Coffee machine and teapig... More

What a lovely review, thank you. I'm pleased to see that you received a complimentary upgrade on arrival, something we always try to offer where availability allows. The newly converted Newton room certainly does boast a lot of character, something we are very proud of and I'm glad you felt the same, see you again next time you are in... More

Husband and I stayed for one night and booked Bed, Breakfast and Evening Meal in a Luxury Room. The location is great and there is ample parking. We had a quick drink before we were shown to our room. First impressions were good, the room was large with a lovely king size bed and a sofa in the bay window... More
