My title alludes to the response I received-- accompanied by a look which said I was obviously a moron-- when I'd inquired of the waitress as to the curious item occupying a prominent spot on my breakfast plate. Fried bread isn't a biggie here in Southern California, I could've explained, but I suspect admitting I'm from California would've only put me farther in the red.

And yes, folks, the Swan has Local Colour.

Let's face it, The Swan is never likely to win any win any awards for designer décor, nor is it brimming with any of the doodads one collects in so many hotels these days. You'll have to bring your own shampoo and shower cap, and you won't find a blow dryer or even a clock in your room. On the other hand you'll have a comfortable bed, a stall shower (with a somewhat wonky temperature control), clean surroundings, coffee maker, TV and a reasonably good breakfast in the adjacent pub. Please note, though, that rooms do not have telephones. Also be aware that if you're staying on weekends and like to turn in early, you may have to deal with a bit of noise from departing pub patrons (parking is between the pub and the rooms.)

The cozy but plain-wrap rooms are converted stables with high ceilings. The inn itself, I understand, dates back to the 1600's. Rooms are set back far enough from early morning noise of lorries on Warwick Road for hotel guests never to notice a thing. All but one unusually hot, muggy summer which blossomed into a thunderstorm (thus confusing the issue whether to keep the windows open or shut) we've always slept incredibly well at The Swan and think you probably will, too. Full English breakfast (or your choice of something slightly less substantial) is made to order at the time of your choosing, served in a room at the back of the pub.

I like the Swan. It's got a no-nonsense, earthy sort of appeal, plus the fact that we rated a nod of familiarity from the woman who served breakfast when we came back a second summer sort of clinched the deal. Lodgings are reasonably priced, comfortable and we were treated very well. Where else would the innkeeper meet a guest in the courtyard at eleven pm with a alarm clock, just to make sure we were up the next morning on time?

PS Wasn't sure how to rate the place location-wise. For us, location was perfect, as we were visiting residents of Kineton. For those who are looking to visit Stratford-upon-Avon or Warwick, it's a 10 - 15 mile drive through pretty rural back roads.
