Have never been in to such a warm welcoming pub full of a rare mix of intelligent conversation and great stories.It is the heart & sole of village life where you always get a friendly welcome from the great staff.

Unless you've lived in Mountsorrel all your life give this place a miss. If you manage to get past the sad old farts sitting round the bar then you are doing well, as they guard it like it's covered in gold. Once over that obstacle you have to get served, so good luck with that one. In saying all that... More

Called on the off chance for a late Saturday booking and was pleased to hear they could fit us in and that they had a vegan option on the menu. Quite surprising for such a quaint, old pub. I was happy with the vegan option but the chef offered two more meals which sounded interesting so I chose the stuffed... More

Greene King IPA & Abbot + a very average Black Sheep. Is it the lack of competition? It has all the makings of a great pub if only in a great beer.

We do have five ales on all the time. Abbot, Hen, black sheep, Harvest pale and a guest that rotates. We offer a good selection of ales for a village pub, many do not have any. More

Me and my partner are regular visitors to the swan. It is standard practice to ring the bell to call for last orders. This has happened every single time me and my partner have visited. The last time we visited, mid October, there was a new older lady behind the bar. Not sure if she was management or not but... More

A proper local pub, very quaint and friendly but lively. Lovely atmosphere and very reasonable prices. Haven't tried the food here yet but have heard that it's also top quality

Ate on a Saturday night. Restaurant unexpectedly quiet but bar seemed busy. Service was courteous and friendly. Wide variety of food on offer = all with a bit of a pleasant twist. Both our meals tasty and well presented. The Inn is an historic building and in areas could do with a refurbishment.
