We recently visited the Bull and Swan for Sunday lunch. I decided to give it a whirl, instead of going to the London Inn, which we would usually frequent for a Sunday roast. So, how was it? The experience was, to be honest, underwhelming: The food was simply OK: average portions, containing mediocre quality meat with absolutely no green vegetables... More

Looks really inviting from outside which drew us in and we were not disappointed. We were there for lunch. Good prompt friendly service, great selection of beers and top quality varied menu. Our party felt that if we had not already made plans for dinner we would have been back the same evening. Will be back to give it a... More

Lovely atmosphered pub in Stamford - usually eat in the bar(rather than the restaurant which feels a tad impersonal and is slightly boringly decorated). The bar has a nice feel to it; the service isn't bad - and most people who eat there seem pretty content with the fare on offer.

We stayed one night here at beginning of September as part of our week away for the Burghley Horse Trials. The B&S is a great old coaching inn and the car par entrance off the main road is testament to that, it is quite narrow but go with a hearty soul and you will be fine. Our room (the Stag... More

Group of us had a pleasant supper. Not particularly exciting but lovely fresh fish and no complaints. Service could have been more attentive but reacted well. Would return

Having had a delightful walk through the grounds of the Burghley Estate accessed directly from the sister hotel car park down the road, we fell into the Bull and Swan. Tastefully decorated , steeped in history. Great choice of real ales. To help us choose the bar tender gave our party a tasting of the various beers. Nice touch. We... More

We stayed at the Garden House but as the dogs were not allowed in the dining room there we walked a little way down the road to this pub and found a wonderful welcome for us and our two little dogs (the staff brought a bowl of water for them!). The food was absolutely lovely and we had a thoroughly... More

Thank you for your review, dogs are more than welcome in any area of our bar and a bowl of water should be the least you can expect. We also have a number of dog friendly rooms available for your consideration next time you are in Stamford More

We stayed overnight to celebrate a friends wedding at a nearby hotel. The rooms, food and service at this hotel are excellent and the staff are very friendly! I would highly recommend this hotel as a great place to stay. It's close to both the town centre and Burghley House. Thanks to the staff for an enjoyable stay.
