We called in here for lunch on our way to Somerset but we're very disappointed. The pub lacked character and the food was not good -small portions , slow service and just not the best quality of food . The staff were friendly enough but we will not be returning ..

This is a small rural hotel .From the moment you arrive the staff make you more than welcome. Rooms were spotless and a good size. The breakfast and dinner were excellent. Staff went extra mile to help with our requests.

Stayed here one summer simply because it was a convenient distance from three different places I wanted to visit. Was so nice I came back again. Food was absolutely wonderful, different menu this time but still so good. Staff are very friendly and the pub is cosy and inviting.

Having looked at the pictures and reading the reviews beforehand we was looking forward to our stay at the swan, however we felt a bit let down with the dated room, bedroom mix up, the busy road, tiny TV and the fact there was only one waiting staff at the busy breakfast.
