the brief menu still has plenty of variety and food to suit all. There are many innovative touches (we loved the shallot onion rings) and modern presentation applied to well-cooked food. The beer, gins and wine were good also. we enjoyed all 3 courses. All in an interestingly laid out setting with modern tables but a relaxed range of settees... More

I visited the swan inn today with my friend and my 2 dogs as I had a groupon voucher. We had the most delicious lunch which was slow roasted pork belly with sweet potato and pear mash and to follow I had treacle sponge and salted caramel sauce. My friend had summer fruits crumble which she said was lovely too!... More

We visited The Swan Inn simply because it was close to our B & B. The food in this pub is outstanding - really excellent food! We have enjoyed the friendliness of the staff, the atmosphere and the very delicious food. Well done The Swan Inn - a really great night. Thank you very much

Nice meal, nice drink, nice layout & attention to detail in design. Be sure to pop in if you're in the Kington area. Located in the square its easily accessible - mushroom risotto highly recommended if you're mushroom fan.

We enjoy eating at The Swan on the Square, Kington but on our last visit they really did go that extra mile to please. My daughter is vegan and few places we visit cater for a vegan diet. However, with 24 hours notice, Ian put great thought into planning a meal which was vegan, appetising and very tasty. (we meat... More

The woman behid the bar gave us a warm welcome . We ordered a drink and ordered our food. Both... More

Stayed for one night on 27th May 2014. New managers have been in place only since April this year and have certainly changed things for the better since the last review (James T). Our room was very comfortable, hosts were extremely welcoming and the full English breakfast was excellent and set us up perfectly for a day walking in the... More

Stayed March 2014 for one night unfortunately. Overall a pretty terrible place to stay, mold in the coffee machine sachet receptacle, half finished paint jobs, unbelievable junk room, old tyres in car park, half built/demolished shed, ash trays outside full of water and cigarette ends, broken fencing in car park, virtually no cereals at breakfast (old and nearly empty containers),...

Very warm and friendly welcome from the new owners Steve and Gay. Our room was clean and comfortable with lovely views. We stayed on a B&B basis and the food was cooked to order with amazing bacon and some of the best scrambled eggs we have tasted. There are several National Trusts properties near by and the area is very... More

Stopped bed and breakfast here on our journey while touring Wales and were on our way home. The pub has a great atmosphere and the staff very friendly. The evening meal was good but they had run out of certain things on the menu but that wasn’t a problem we just picked something else. The beer was excellent and they... More
