We arrived at the Swan around six in the evening, tired from a hectic day and frustrated from sitting in traffic for part of the journey. The atmosphere at the pub immediately made us feel relaxed and welcome. Friendly staff showed us to our recently refurbished room across the road. The decor was beautiful. Shabby chic with lovely touches such as beautiful lamps and luxurious cushions and toiletries . It was a sunny evening and views from our windows were stunning. We had a good view of the river from the front window and the pub and fields with sheep from the bathroom window.
After changing we ordered a drink from the bar and went to sit in the pub garden. There were lots of locals with their well behaved dogs and bantams free range which were very entertaining. It was lovely to soak up the evening sunshine and to know there was a table waiting for us in the restaurant. The food was excellent especially our steaks which were cooked perfectly. Wine was amazing too and we only wish we could have made room for a dessert. A good reason for a return visit.
Slept well in the comfortable bed and made use of the tea making facility. After a long walk around the village we built up a good appetite for breakfast, which was freshly cooked to order and delicious.
The staff really make this pub special and go out of their way to be friendly and helpful.
Will definitely stay at The Swan again. Now my husband wants to move to Swinbrook!
