My wife and I have been visiting this pub on and off for 18 years since we moved to Mountsorrel, and it has always been our favourite in the village. This rainy Bank Holiday Monday afternoon we wandered down with our 2 children to visit the beer festival and get a burger which had been advertised on Facebook. Arriving at... More

The Swan looks unprepossessing from the road. A building flat to the street with an archway through to the small carpark - tip - park on-street! In the evening the pub is warm and cosy and full of atmosphere. Only a few tables. The food and service in the evening is excellent and far above the label of 'pub grub'.... More

Walked along the river to Mountsorrel, and stopped at The Swan Inn for lunch, beef burgers are homemade and beautiful, and potato wedges are lovely. Nice quiet spot in the garden on a sunny day, will definitely be going again!!! Made to feel welcome, Thank you

We visited the Swan with a group of friends for a meal, a catch up and to unwind after another busy week. You could easily pass the Swan without seeing it, if you do see it make a point of visiting. Great food, good selection of beers and friendly welcoming staff made this a place we will revisit again. Tips... More

We've always popped down to the very nice Swan in the summer evenings with our growing family and have in the past, sat out in the garden with friends (also with kids) until almost closing time (kiddies asleep in buggies etc). We popped down again this week to be told that we only had 30 mins to drink our drinks... More

The staff were so friendly and attentive and the menu was varied,we were expecting the standard pub grub type of meal but it was far better than that,everything was freshly cooked and plentiful,...
