We often use this hotel to call in for a drink and a bite to eat, it's got a nice layout that is good when visiting with children, with activities that keep them occupied. The food choice is good, and the prices are reasonable. The staff are very friendly, although on some occasions it can get a little too busy... More

My husband and his sister had stayed here 40 years ago, as youngsters with their parents. On our first OS trip from Australia, a 'must do' was to reenact photos they had from their youth in front of the Swan. This place is beautiful. So many diverse pockets to sit and relax or eat or drink or gaze at the... More

It was a wet and windy afternoon and we retreated into the bar at the Swan Hotel at about 6pm. I had eaten here before and was underwhelmed. Certainly not with a review. This time however the food was fantastic. It scored on innovation of presentation, taste and simplicity. The black pudding EGG looked liked a Boxus Tree with toast... More

I arrived at 3 o'clock, the place was quiet, there was 3 bar staff it took them 15minutes to serve me a Coke and a pint. Then they did it like they were doing me a favour? I don't need this so I'll vote with my feet in future. I would recommend staying well clear, there's a nice place over... More

For me the Swan has always guaranteed good food and service, it's somewhere I would choose to go for a special occasion. Having not been for a while I decided to book my friends surprise 21st birthday meal there as a safe bet for a lovely evening. Unfortunately this place seems to have changed management or something along those lines... More

We stayed at the Swan for a wedding. We booked about 4 months back being told that we need to book a deluxe suit as all regular rooms were booked. As we are from out of town we wanted to stay at the place hosting the wedding we went for the larger room with the larger price tag. The only... More

As it had been raining constantly for five days we decided to try the bar at the Swan Hotel for something to do. You will need to take an umbrella as the car park is quite a distance from the bar entrance and we all got pretty wet. It was worth it though as the bar was warm and very... More
