We popped into The Swan today for lunch as headed to Thame to look around the market. The service was friendly but the food was a real disappointment! We both had the hot dog which came out as a sausage in a dry bun with some semi fried onions and that was nested on fries and in a bowl!!! Clearly... More

Stayed here for two nights, Friday and Saturday, lovely place, great location, very friendly and easy going staff. Not a huge place, very quirky and full of character. Breakfast was freshly cooked and tasted lovely, great value money.

Stayed here overnight to attend a wedding locally. A warm welcome, nice room and a lovely breakfast next morning. Although we never used the bar it did look very cosy! Free parking outside of the hotel but make sure you read the signs first.

This was a lovely quaint hotel in Thame. Very reasonable stay and very good breakfast with all you could eat.host very friendly and helpful. This is a traditional coaching inn so don't go expecting modern contemporary! Yes the room was smaller than a modern hotel and the floor creaked a bit but what do you expect? It was clean ,warm...

This is a pub where I have been having business lunches since the early eighties, but first time in recent years. It remains a good place to meet and has a good range of beer on offer. On this occasion we had a hydraulic lunch and so cannot comment on the other than it looked good.

A quirky place with a lot of character. We went on a two night deal which was very good value. You get the impression that the pub trade is the local focus but a very modernised set of rooms, up a historic flight of stairs, shows what can be done. The room was designed with very good taste with a... More

My husband and I were traveling and we didn't have reservations but just stopped in to see if there was any room. Lucky for us there was. The Swan has a charming old pub area which served delicious food,friendly patrons and an owner who went out of her way to make us comfortable. The scrumptious breakfast was served in a... More

Stayed here for 4 nights.... Great wee hotel.... Owners very friendly and trusting. It's the oldest pub in Thame.... Rooms were smallish.... But they had everything you needed.... Clean ensuite, TV, wifi, towels.... Amazing breakfast. Order a cooked breakfast that sets you up for the day. . Every floor and wall is soo Wonkey.... It adds to its character
