“Great stay in this lovely pub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

I stayed at The Swan Inn at Stoford for 1 night in August with family. Both of our rooms had lovely double beds which were very comfortable, both had TV's, kettle/amenities and a reasonable size bathroom with a good shower. The only negative was that the corridor was a bit loud during the night with people running down it.
Staff at the pub were lovely! Very welcoming and friendly throughout our stay.
We had a 3 course meal for dinner which was nice although the starters were a bit limited, the range of main courses was much more extensive, desert was great too! Likewise, there was a very good breakfast menu available the following morning when we checked out.
Overall, very satisfied and would recommend.

Had amazing time deffo again can't wait to see what the future holds for this place as its only just re-opened!! Well done guys. The area is perfect with close access to Salisbury stone henge and Warminster. The river flowing by the beer garden really helps a picture perfect scene in my eyes as I live in the city life it's good to get away.

Was so pleased to read about The Swan being re-opened and couldnt wait to pay a visit. However..................not good news! Went for lunch. Menu not bad. Wine not bad. Staff were pleasant. However...............Chose to sit in the garden as it was a sunny afternoon. I choose the word "garden" but to be blunt it was a total mess. Overgrown and dirty. Not the place you would choose to spend a sunny day dining! In my opinion the new owners should have held back on the re-launch until the place was cleaned up. Needless to say will not be returning or recommending. Sorry
