We paid extra for a suite which was in a converted barn/out-building. It was very warm and quiet, had plenty of storage, good TV and immaculate bathroom. The meal that evening was excellent. The bed was so comfortable we had a good night's sleep. Being behind the main building seemed to cut down any noise from the main road. Breakfast... More

A very enjoyable break . We stayed overnight, and found every member of staff friendly and helpfull. All our requests were met promptly with a cheerfull "can do" attitude. Please pass on our thanks to all your staff. One very minor niggle - there were only two real ales available.

We stayed here for 2 nights whilst visiting family in the area. Really nice room with good facilities. Only problem was the noise from the kitchens late at night and early morning. However we would stay here again.

Because we visit The Swan occasionally and have always enjoyed the ambience and good food, we decided to make this the venue for husband's very special birthday and we were not disappointed. Lovely atmosphere and the area dressed by The Swan a lovely touch especially for the birthday. Excellent food, the little folk well catered for. Service very good even... More

Stayed Saturday night after spending the day cycling the local roads. Room was very warm, cosy and clean. The pub had a lovely friendly warm atmosphere and the food was excellent. Great value for money will definitely be back soon.

We eat here as a couple most weekends as we live a few miles away. Why do we? Because we haven't found anything to make us not to! The food is always first class served by staff that can't do enough for you, especially Carleen,Amy & Lucy. The Swann is always busy and that speaks volumes
