Quinno _ left this review about The Swan

A Greene King place which is a large hotel. Enter to a lovely main lobby which has retained its frosted glass and ornate mosaic flooring. Turn left for the bar and seating rooms. The interior here is somewhat of a let-down; multi-roomed but in a knocked through manner, quite staid and safely decorated with little of note. A segue to the bar, which sported three pumps with just GK IPA and OSH (middling) on. Overall it felt like a Spoons conversion but without the good points of said chain. Could and should do more.

Mark Davey left this review about The Swan Hotel

A Wetherspoons style open plan sprawl of a pub attached to a small hotel, owned and operated by Greene King.

Having tried and failed to buy food at the Railway Arms, we ended up here for a fish finger sandwich and a pint.

Pleasent enough place, full with elderly couples and "ladies wot lunch" on a Friday afternoon. Decent pint of IPA served, but not really my kind of place.

I L left this review about The Swan Hotel

A much modernised place inside this old pub presumably to attract the friday and Saturday night crowds but it wasnt very busy when we were there. Only Greene King Abbott was on the handpumps.
