Nice Pub, lovely dining room, very traditional, spotlessly clean and very light and homely. Young enthusiastic service, fantastically delicious roasts had, very good menu and wine list. Overall good value for money. The only thing that puzzled me was that it was only about a third full for Sunday lunch, I would expect it to be packed to the rafters.... More

Lovely experience staying here for a nearby wedding. Staff were very helpful, evening spent in the bar the night before the wedding was great. We only ate two breakfasts as opposed to any proper meals in the restaurant but the cooked breakfasts were perfectly good. Other friends we were with were very complimentary about the restaurant.

It is not typical for me to complain, I only tend to write TripAdvisor reviews in praise however I was so disappointed with this place that I felt the need to write an impassioned review. We stayed here for a wedding for two nights. It started promising, the room was nice and we had dinner in the pub which was... More

Stayed for two nights in May. Arrived at 4pm to find it totally shut up. We eventually were let in and shown to our room. The bed had the worst mattress I had slept on since my seven years at boarding school in the1960's . This mattress appeared to have started life in that decade. The food however was outstanding...

Stopped off here enroute back to london for lunch with my family. Reception from staff was very friendly and interior of pub really nice. Have very picky children but something on the menu for everyone. Pulled pork with bubble and squeak to die for and homemade burgers got the seal of approval from boys!!! Gammon steak melted in mouth.

We have recently visited the Swan for an evening meal, we had come to expect an evening with good service and very good food but found the outcome was quite different. The staff were helpful and friendly but seemed worn out and unenthusiastic about their job. The meals themselves were comparable to something no different from what you might find... More

Dear Sir, I can only apologise that we weren't up to your expectations on this occasion. We pride ourselves on our warmth, friendliness and service. So you can imagine my concern if we are not practicing what we preach. Our menu and specials boards offer a real mix of foods and flavours, our pub favourites and grill section is designed... More

We had been to an agm all day and we were looking for a good meal on the way home. The Hotel looked inviting and the board outside said locally sourced meats and south coast seafood. The dining room was almost empty...perhaps that should have told us something. Anyway we sat at a table by the window . The menu... More

Dear Sir and Madam, On behalf of the Swan and my Team I can only offer an apology that we have fallen below your expectations. Please be assured that is never our intention to be below par. Due to the high numbers that eat with us on Sunday lunch (we often look after around 120 people) we offer a different... More

The staff at the Swan couldn't have been more helpful. We had our wedding at a nearby venue and stayed at the Swan the night before and the night of the wedding. They were perfect, and helped at every potential hurdle we faced: from printing a spare copy of my speech(!) to helping with taxis; and we couldn't recommend staying... More

We strongly recommend a stay at the Swan Inn, Fittleworth. We very much liked the rooms in the former stables at the rear of this very old country inn (14,15,16,17) which are quiet and with a good atmosphere. Breakfast was good too, and the staff friendly, polite and helpful. Excellent value for money.
