We would like to thank Justin, Liam & all the staff at the Swan for putting on a wonderful party at Christmas for us, the room was beautiful, the food was fantastic and the staff were brilliant.
We held our staff Christmas party at the Swan on the 20th of December, not only were they busy in the main part of the establishment but they also catered for around 50 of our guests, the room was presented beautifully, so cosy, this would make a lovely wedding venue too, the views over the decking are gorgeous towards the river banks and Bridgnorth. We had a 3 course meal of choice all of which was exceptionally tasty and presented to the highest standard. The staff were at tentative and worked very hard all night serving drinks and food........... I would recommend The Swan to all for parties both small and large and again Thank you very much :)

our extended family met here for Sunday lunch and it was great, a very pleasant surprise. Food was delicious and plentiful, staff were helpful and polite and we were all served at a good time considering there were 19 of us.
I wish the owners all the best for making a go of this pub which is slightly out of town and has had the road shut which makes it difficult for 'passers by' to get to know about it. Our Sunday lunch 'catch up' was great and better than many places we've been to in the area in recent years.

We have stayed here for 3 nights. This place is truly wonderful. Excellent food and the owners and staff are extremely friendly. It was extra special with the log fire and they have a "snug room" with another fire. The decor is truly stunning. I would Definately recommend staying here you won't be disappointed. Carmen Bezzina

a perfect stop off on our way to visit family and It will not be our last , great location and the view from our window across the river was fantastic, The food was excellent evening and breakfast ; most of the "big" name hotels should put their staff in for as stay to learn how its done, still a work in progress i believe for the owners but still great. Thank you

Room Tip: room 5 a wonderful view

Lovely place. Clean bright and fashionable. Excellent food and service. Stayed at Bulls Head up the road for 2 nights, which was absolutely dire, so checked out and moved to The Swan instead. Wish I had spent my whole 5 nights here instead. Would recommend to anyone.

Took my daughter to this pub for lunch and we had the '3 courses for £10' deal - it was really super. Delicious food: she had soup (a bit average) really fantastic penne, I had courgette fritters and fishcakes and we both had white chocolate and vanilla rice pudding..ummm. It felt like great value for lovely food. The pub has been done up well with a relaxed but reassuringly business-like feel. Good service.

Have driven past the Swan many times and only once called in many years ago whenI was photographing a wedding reception.Called in today and I was amazed by what I saw and the ambiance of the place.Very spacious but with lots of cozy nooks.Ideal for those who want a relaxing meal and drink without the music and chatter of more modern establishments.Furnishings blended in well,not looking as they had been placed there willy nilly,to channel in as many diners as possible.
Very wide choice of beers and ciders available.The menu offerered a very wide choice of meals.My 3-course lunch was divine garlic mushrooms,roast beef,and sticky toffee pudding all for a tenner.
Service was friendly,calm,warm,and polite.
Will certainly be returning,and will be recommending to family and friends,
