I made a nostalgic trip to Swayfield on Sunday. I was born there 68 years ago & have recently lost my mother, who was also born in Swayfield so 3 generations of my family (plus Roger the dog) decided to make the journey down for the day.

Stayed here one night. Nice traditional pub with accommodation in separate block. Spacious, clean, comfortable room. We had family room so there was a small separate room with bunk beds and even a few toys so great if you are travelling with children. Pub is by the road but we did not experience any problem with traffic noise. Dinner in... More

The menu was varied and reasonably priced. I had the homemade pate followed by gammon and fresh pineapple whilst my husband enjoyed smoked salmon followed by a steak. He also had the crème brulee for dessert. Everything was freshly prepared and beautifully cooked. The drinks were very reasonably priced.

We ate at The Royal Oak as part of a wedding party on Friday night.The pub laid on a very tasty chicken casserole with bread rolls.On Saturday and Sunday we had breakfast which proved to be good value for money as it included orange juice cereal full English with toast and either tea or coffee for £5.95.

I found a dinner, bed and breakfast deal for £59 on groupon so booked it after checking out the reviews. We were... More

I stayed at the Royal Oak for a night, whilst on my way to a business event in Grantham. The hotel is set in a lovely, quiet location in the village of Swayfield, about 20 minutes drive from Grantham. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and nothing was too much trouble. My room was in a set of rooms... More

Booked in for an overnight stay. Beautiful clean modern accommodation. Comfortable bed. Our evening meal in the pub was beautifully cooked, as was the large breakfast in the morning. Nothing was too much trouble. Well kept gardens and a play area for the children. Large car park.Well worth a visit.
