A family birthday lunch-time meal. Parking in car park and opposite no real problem apart from the heavy traffic! [It is a tight squeeze through the archway into the small car park for anything other than a small car.] The wine and beers were excellent as was the range of the Saturday lunch menu - everyone was able to choose...

Just by chance the thunderstorm struck as we were passing this attractive pub so what else could we do but dive in, have a pint and order one of the special lunches put on during the week. What a treat and the fish served in such an innovotive manner! TEN stars

I visited thinking I would spoil myself and enjoy an above-average Sunday lunch. Boy, was I disappointed. Firstly to charge £3.80 for a pint of beer when Sam Smiths sells beer for £1.88 and Wetherspoon's for £1.99 is shocking. And before the management claim it was a superior ale it was far from that - it was cloudy and tasted... More

We popped in her on a wet almost winters night after reading the review in The Good Pub Guide 2015. The beer was suburb, the red wine just as good and then there was the food. I had the vegetarian risotto which was absolutely delicious. So many places manage to make a meal for vegetarians bland, but not here. My... More

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
