The Experience

The Swan is gorgeous, a contemporary take on a village local. It’s part of a new wave of pubs that open all day and do so much more than serve a good pint. Come for breakfast, pop in to buy a loaf of bread, then return for afternoon tea and raid the cake stands. It’s right on the bustling street, with a sprinkling of tables and chairs on the pavement in French-café style. Interiors mix old and new brilliantly. You get Farrow & Ball colours and cool lamps hanging above the bar, then lovely old rugs on boarded floors and a wood-burner to keep things toasty. Push inland to find an airy restaurant open to the rafters that overlooks the garden. Here you dig into Tom Blake’s fabulous food (he’s ex-River Cottage), anything from grilled Cornish herring to a three-course feast. Bedrooms are lovely. Two have fancy baths in the room, you get vintage French furniture, iPod docks, colourful throws and walk-in power showers. Glastonbury is close, as are the Mendips.

Popped in here for Sunday lunch which was delicious. The gardens were well cared for and the staff were very friendly and efficient.

A really good stay at the Swan. Lovely location, pretty village/small town. Good bedroom (lovely to be upgraded) and bathroom. Very good food, especially the Sunday roast - best roast potatoes ever in a restaurant. Lovely area, close to Glastonbury, Avalon Marshes (heard bitterns) and good cycling area. Vibrant pub, very popular.

Great place. Comfortable and spacious room Tasty dinner and breakfast lovely friendly staff Most recommended


We only went for light dinner, but were very impressed. The waitresses were friendly and helpful, and service was rapid. We had two starter each, and both were excellent

Anthony, Witney

This hotel is really wonderful. We stayed in one of the larger rooms with a bath to the side and it felt incredibly cosy and luxurious. The decor, size and facilities made it one of my favourite places to stay - and as an academic I've been in hotels all over the world. The food downstairs was tasty and they had a good wine selection. Staff were very accommodating and couldn't have been nicer. I have been recommending this place to friends ever since and compared to prices in cities, the room costs are very reasonable. I just hope this review doesn't make it harder for me to book again!
