This was our third visit to The Swan Inn and once again, the landlord made us feel unwelcome. It was Father's Day and we'd been for a family walk. We popped in for a drink and from the outset the landlord was brusque and surly. Just as other reviewers have described. He was like this with us the first couple... More

Judging by how others enjoyed their visit to The Swan, I can only assume those writing negative posts haven't grasped the landlord's sense of humour. Very dry wit which made me and my partner feel comfortable. It's a normal country pub with fantastic food and a charming couple running it. It doesn't pretend to be anything else and that's why...

The pub was nice enough but the landlord was surly from the start. We tried to make the best of it and enjoy our evening but we should have left then! When my burger arrived the burger bun was actually two slices of bread with the crusts cut off but again we didn't say anything. The finally straw was being... More

I had a lovely steak cooked just the way I like it with real chips. Pete was very welcoming and lit the fire for us to warm ourselves up. The next morning he even came out and showed us where to wait for the bus as you wait on the opposite side of the road to flag the bus down.... More

Firstly please do not be put off by other reviews, my experience of this place could not have been better! The location is great being close to central Bath but in a beautiful rural location with fabulous views! Upon arrival we were warmly welcomed and even though the kitchen was closed I was offered a selection of hot meals to... More

My husband and I visited the Swan Inn during our stay at a local B&B Cleeves Wood about a 10 minute walk from the Inn, during our honeymoon. Upon entering we were greeted by a burley man named Pete. He was the owner/landlord and upon entering he made us feel very welcome. Our accommodation had called ahead and Pete happily... More

Well, I had already reviewed this place but my review had mysteriously disappeared! I feel so strongly about the way I was treated, I'm writing it again. Lets see if it disappears this time. I visited (or tried to visit) this pub in October with my girlfriend and her visiting parents. We planned to have some lunch and then go... More

Lovely situation BUT appalling hospitality. Rude grumpy landlord and mediocre food. Difficult to understand why he does this job...... The pub itself has an interesting history,but inside it is bleak and unwelcoming

I read these last two reviews with a little dismay, some disappointment but with little surprise. The Swan Inn is a Pub, a Pub which welcomes travellers literally from all over the world. As a Customer I have been told that this is the sort of pub they had been hoping to experience on their trip to the UK, but... More
