My husband and I visited the Swan Inn during our stay at a local B&B Cleeves Wood about a 10 minute walk from the Inn, during our honeymoon. Upon entering we were greeted by a burley man named Pete. He was the owner/landlord and upon entering he made us feel very welcome. Our accommodation had called ahead and Pete happily... More

Well, I had already reviewed this place but my review had mysteriously disappeared! I feel so strongly about the way I was treated, I'm writing it again. Lets see if it disappears this time. I visited (or tried to visit) this pub in October with my girlfriend and her visiting parents. We planned to have some lunch and then go... More

Lovely situation BUT appalling hospitality. Rude grumpy landlord and mediocre food. Difficult to understand why he does this job...... The pub itself has an interesting history,but inside it is bleak and unwelcoming

I read these last two reviews with a little dismay, some disappointment but with little surprise. The Swan Inn is a Pub, a Pub which welcomes travellers literally from all over the world. As a Customer I have been told that this is the sort of pub they had been hoping to experience on their trip to the UK, but... More

The Landlord ejected us for picking up a napkin! Well, I can safely say that I have NEVER encountered such abysmal customer service, in any type of forward facing business, as I did in The Swan today (19/01/14). We had been for a walk in the delightful sunshine and had planned to call at the pub mid walk to enjoy... More

Today. Intended to stop half way for a pint. At the Swan Inn. Removed our wellies at the door, left outside as requested by the passive aggressive signage, we were met with displeasure from the owner, our dog had to be tied up outside by the main road, we had three well behaved but excited kids with us who were...

We stayed for two nights in the room upstairs in the pub. Pete and Pat were great hosts and made us very welcome. We had everything we needed and had a very comfortable stay. The breakfast was extremely tasty, and cooked to order. Evening meals available and again were very well cooked and great value. Great to be in a... More

Stayed two nights in their upstairs room. The room has great character as you might expect in a building with a long history such as the Swans'. The facilities are fine and the room is quiet and dark once the pub is closed, and not too noisy before that! The room is really spacious with room to sit in the... More

The Swan is situated in a stunning spot with fantastic views. The pub itself has ample car parking spaces, is clean and also has some interesting information about the mines close by. It is easy access to the city of Bath and has some wonderful walks. The Landlord seems rather grumpy and you almost feel your an inconvience. The food... More
