5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

Dinner for two, on a busy Friday evening. The staff were attentive and helpful, the food just perfect. A little hint - be sure to be really hungry if you order the larger portions. We had the smaller option and the portions were generous. I had chicken and leek pie - perfect, my partner had fish and chips (okay not rocket science) but the meals was delightful.
Highly recommend dining here

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Staying overnight at a British pub is something of a lottery, but the positive reviews of the Swan outweighed the negative, so I gave it a try. I was not disappointed - the Swan was originally a coaching inn and is rightly proud of its history and heritage: it oozes atmosphere. My (single) room was on the first floor (second for our American friends) and overlooked the main street. The street noise warned about by some reviewers did not materialize and I had a good night's sleep (this may be different at weekends, though). The cooked breakfast was excellent, but if you wanted to go continental the choice was very limited (no cold meats or cheese, for example). I also had dinner there, which was very good (see separate review). If ever I need to stay in this area again, I would certainly return to the Swan.

Had a fabulous night at The Swan last night.
Very oldy worldly 250 year old inn, beautiful setting middle of the high street in Tarporley. Fabulous old pub with quirky little snugs serving the most fantastic fresh local food. The evening meal was first class. As was the service.
We booked a suite, room 5 at front of the hotel over looking the high street, despite that the noise was low.
Great room with a fabulous bed, and some reviews say the place is dated but it's in line with the age of the place, modern would ruin it!
Breakfast was equally beautiful and fresh....fully enjoyed our stay.

Stayed for New Year's Eve. Our room was at the back of the hotel in a small very traditional (very thick walls, original beautiful windows) outbuilding. Decor was of a very high standard and the room had everything required. Breakfast was exceptionally good and cooked fresh to order. An amazing stay for only £80 for two including breakfast. The pub / hotel itself is top quality traditional style. Would definitely stay again.

Situated in the pretty village of Tarporley this is a lovely place to stay. Very cosy with lots of atmosphere.Bedroom was very comfortable with big bay window overlooking the high street which is full of independent shops. Not a national chain in sight. Beer is very good with at least 4real ales to choose from and the various bars are very congenial places to sit and enjoy a drink. We had an excellent meal in one of the bars and there is a choice of about three different rooms where you can get a meal. Menu was good with lots of choice and reasonably priced. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Will definitely return.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking High Street . Worth it for the view even if there is a bit of traffic noi...

We went to The Swan for Boxing Day breakfast for the first time this year. We were not disappointed. We were in a large group and all our needs were very well catered for. The atmosphere was fun. Initially we were hesitant about sitting on a long bench with people we didn't know but it turned out to all add to the fun of the day. The food was hot and of very high quality considering the high number of people being catered for. There was more than enough with my two teenage boys enjoying thirds! The gathering of the hunt outside the window added to the atmosphere providing a very English Christmas spectacle with many people gathering to watch. We shall definitely be booking next year!
