Summary: Perfectly warm and cosy EXCEPTIONAL roast dinner And for me the perfect pub setting. A bit more: The Swan is a favourite of ours. We first stumbled across it after trouncing across cow-filled fields, walking by rivers and quaint West Oxfordshire countryside. A refuge from the rain and fresh winds, we entered the Swan Inn, which sits in a... More

This is a lovely well run pub with comfortable rooms. Service is excellent, dinner showed off good cooking. It's a delightful spot and well situated for visiting Burford. We had the suite (Debo's room) which was very spacious - big bed, nice rolltop bath (no separate shower) and 2 TVs. Not sure why the dog policy is so limited when... More

Lovely old pub extended to provide an excellent restaurant. Food was good. Hope to go again. We didn't stay overnight, just booked for dinner. Small Shame about photos of former PM on the wall but I'm not a fan of that PM;-(

You spend the day poking along back roads, around beautiful villages and the charming town of Burford. Back at the Swan, you peer out your window at horses grazing in the pasture nearby and listen to the sound of the Windrush River. You eat a scrumptious dinner in the centuries old dining room, then soak in the clawfooted tub before... More

Well off the beaten track but well worth the excursion. Lovely dining pub. Very friendly staff with a good choice on the menu. Be careful to read both sides of the menu sheet. Some main courses are on the reverse.

Staying in Swinbrook, having a local pub just 10 minute walk away made lunch and evenings most enjoyable! The pub is a typical 'local' pub with welcoming staff at whatever time we called in. Visits with friends and family saw many pints of real Ale drunk and plenty of Wine and Cider at lunch- times. Evening meals were excellent, we... More

We have stayed here on a number of occasions and it just gets better. The staff were different this time but were a really enthusiastic obliging group of young people.

The Swan is something right out of a movie set, both inside and out. The restaurant served good food, but the cosy in the bar area was the real show stopper with the low ceiling, huge fireplace and soft, low furniture. Our room was down a very sloped hall (the building is, after all, hundreds of years old) with the... More

We stayed in a double room called Widford in the small building directly across the road from the Inn. Comfortable, great view down the valley, and real peace and quite. As to the rest, the service is as good as anyone could possibly want, and the food and drink top notch. If only this standard was the norm...
