“Pub review - beware of wine”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2010

Me and my girlfriend went in last night, the atmosphere was good, however we are somewhat sceptical about the glasses of "Pinot Grigio" that we were served with. We paid nearly £14 for two big glasses of said plonk, but we both felt it was probably Chardonnay, can't be entirely sure so we'll do another review sometime soon (watch out!!!) but not impressed - and we know our Pinot from our Sauvignon Blanc (snotty as that sounds...)

1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2010

I booked this room via laterooms. Please do not fall for discounts offered (£45.00per night). Upon arrival we were shown a double room and it was disgusting!!!!! The carpets were stained and it all seemed grimy. The bathroom is shared with the room next door and it did not work and everything in the bathroom was falling apart. We walked straight out and was promised that money would not be taken from our card. A few days later we was charged £90.00 and we did not even stay there. DO NOT BOOK THIS HOTEL I WOULD NEVER GO BACK

I visit Bicester quite frequently, and until the beginning of 2009 always stayed at the Swan. It's a quaint old pub - said to be the oldest pub in the town - with a real 'village inn' atmosphere, but its only a short walk from the 'Bicester Village' outlet shopping centre and the pedestrianised town centre. True, the rooms don't have en-suite facilities but as comfortable, clean and excellent value accomodation was my main priority then it was always the Swan for me. And the food and beer were great too!. Sadly it lost its way early in 2009 when the landlord left and a succesion of temporary managers didn't do it any favours, but now... WHAT A TRANSFORMATION. The Swan has a new landlord - a guy called Tony Viney - and the pub's gone back to it's glory days. If you don't like being ripped off for accomodation and you do like to stay somewhere out of the ordinary I can't
recomend the Swann highly enough. You just gotta try it for yourself.
