We had a twin room, beds were tiny and very uncomfortable, the bathroom was also on the small side and desperate for refurbishment. The room was at the front and from 6 am it was like sleeping on the hard shoulder. The evening meal was my biggest complaint, started with muscles in tomatoe sauce, more sauce than mussels, I then...

Whilst en-route to Manchester airport we arranged to have a meal at the Swan at Forton on Boxing Day. We had booked our requirements in advance from the on line menu and,once seated ,our starters arrived within minutes of our drinks. The restaurant was very busy with Boxing Day revellers but this did not detract from the attention given to...

We stayed at The Swan for three nights while visiting friends and family. Upon arrival after an 8 hour journey, we were not made to feel very welcome, with a member of staff very quick to tell us when they would be stopping serving food, and when we needed to check out by. The room (in the converted barn) was...

Nice venue, really nice food and very good atmosphere. Good all day event and nice drinks at the very well staffed bar Nice room and warm considering the cold weather outside. The only one downside only luke warm water in the shower.

The carvery can't be faulted. The food looks delicious and is definitely home-cooked. The price is reasonable and staff helpful and friendly. I hadn't booked but was welcomed in. The restaurant very quickly filled up and most seemed to be 'regulars'. Enjoyed the food so much I've booked a Christmas carvery lunch too.

Stayed for one night recently, evening meal was excellent and staff very attentive considering there was another large party eatingat same time, breakfast ok. Room was well below what would be expected even at a competitive price. We stayed in a room in the annexe and it was very cold when we got there at about 5.30, the wall heater...

The character of the building is lovely, we were warmly greeted on arrival by friendly member of staff who was shadowed by a new staff member and shown to our room. Room size was sufficient but looked tired and overshadowed by the road noise due to single paned windows.(We were in a room near the front of the building.)The bathroom...
