The sort of place you can take your parents or business clients for lunch and I've done both recently. Good service, good range of choices on the menu. Beer is a little pricy and varies on how well kept it is. They're happy for us to take our dogs in too. Looking forward to the BBQ they're doing for our... More

Beer is charged at West end prices. £4.20 for a local beer takes the p***. Not even in the centre of Oxford is it this dear. Avoid this place as you have pubs in East Ilsley and Aldworth 2 miles away. Much more reasonable for a pint of local brew. £2.90 in fact. This pub is not good.

If you are visiting this beautiful part of the country for a family celebration then the Compton Swan is the only game in town. Apart from a slight problem with a total lack of staff when we arrived and after a while we had a slightly chilly reception from a harassed lady, although there was no one there. Our room... More

Stayed at the Compton Swan for one night, and right from out arrival felt at home. The rooms were newly refurbished and modern, the bar was well stocked, but the Jewel in the Compton Swan's our terrific hostess. Thank you for having us, we will be back soon! Harry & Keiran

Stayed for one night on business. Check in was nice and fast, the compact double room was pretty much as small as a double room could be and didn't have a wardrobe just a small hanging rail, plenty enough for me mind you. Very clean in the bedroom. No bath just a very small shower cubicle. Sadly no room for... More

Thanks so much to Geoff, Connie & Marie for putting on such a splendid spread of food for our sons christening! Our 50 guests loved the Salmon with Cous Cous, crispy chicken and roasted vegetables, hot buttered potatoes and gorgeous salads. The garden was set up beautifully and the children were all made very welcome! We also stayed for 2... More

Having paid £90 for bed and breakfast at this pub, I was expecting more than was delivered. The room was nice enough. It was clean. There was an small en suite with a door that didn't close properly. Breakfast was OK if unexceptional. We ate in the pub in the evening - very good food, but expensive. I've stayed in... More

This was our third visit to the Compton Swan and I requested room 1 on booking this time, which was lovely again and again we had a comfortable, refreshing sleep in the super king bed. Once again the service and food was second to none. Being recognised on arrival, despite it being 6 months since our last stay, was a... More
