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 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

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

My partner and I spent one night at The Bull and Swan last week and have to say we were really pleased. On arrival the staff were very accommodating and allowed us to check in early so we could go about our day. The room was clean and nicely decorated and felt a little bit special too. We loved the...

The fabulous Henry Cecil Hotel up the hill uses this as a spillover and that's exactly how I ended up here. It's a fairly small pub with about half a dozen very different rooms above. Mine had some fun features, such as a roll top bath (someone had pinched the plug that day). There's a lot going for the place... More

OK, I'm an old romantic (this stay was a present for my 65th birthday from my wife) and our large room (Stag) at the Bull was a perfect boudoir. The bathroom was roomy and immaculately clean with very modern shower and a standalone deep bath and plentiful toiletries. The bed was huge with quality cotton sheets and there was even... More

The tea and coffee facilities were great and we really felt like they hadn't cut costs to give us a really enjoyable stay! Breakfast and evening meals were good, and considering it was the... More
