Will not be staying at the Swan again. The room was small but to be fair had everything we needed. The bathroom looked good at first glance but looking down, the pipes round the toilet and sink also the central heating pipes and the skirting boards were very dirty. The noise through the night from the plumbing woke me up...

I've been a regular visitor to The Swan for the past 20 years or so and can honestly say that this place continues its downward spiral.. The last visit was with my family and another family for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. The service behind the bar was poor with a miserable woman who clearly had better things to do...

Stayed at The Swan in Thatcham last weekend for 3 nights. Great location, friendly and helpful staff overall would recommend for a value for money break. Good breakfast and nice menu choice. Only problem we had was the thunderstorm on the first night which caused lots of problems and the kitchen had to close, but the staff ordered us a...

It's a pub serving pub grub The pub wasn't very welcoming and felt dirty. The service is order at the bar so you would think the waitresses who just deliver the food would be quite relaxed and smiley but no ... Miserable faces and had no clue. I ordered a chicken burger with no tomato, the bar person confirmed, the...

The accomodation at The Swan is situated next to the pub in the old stable block. The rooms are smallish but clean and well furnished,although a little dark due to the small windows. They have comfortable beds and the bathroom we had was light and well laid out with a bath/shower combination. I am over 6ft tall, so had to...

The Swan is clearly a very popular pub and is in a good location in terms of its proximity to the train station. We got the train in to London and it took about an hour, so not bad! We arrived late and retrieved our key from the barman who asked if we knew where to go and then left...

Perfect place in the summer. Food is good, beer is good and the staff are all nice. It's family friendly and you can take your dog too, but not in the restaurant side though obviously. It's only a stones throw from the station too .

Good little place to stay, you are put out in the stable which is unique in its self. The room I was on the first floor and there was only one other room up there. The room was large though dark due to the small window. There was no light near the mirror and it was difficult to get ready...

Booked a twin room this weekend as we were off to Newbury races and to be honest was not expecting much given the bargain price that even included breakfast which I have to say was superb, our room was clean and fresh the beds are really comfy and you even get two bottles of water at the side of each...
