We decided to visit to celebrate our anniversary, managed to book a table quite late on which we were pleased about. We arrived and we seated promptly on a very nice booth table, the waitress asked if we needed more drinks and left us to look through the menu. Around 5 minutes later another waitress arrived to take our order....

Enjoyed a bar lunch at the Swan a couple of days ago. The location inside the old coaching inn was interesting seated in the thoroughfare that originally led to the stables. Service from friendly staff was efficient and the wait for food was short given that the hotel was reasonably busy at lunchtime. There was a choice of three real...

Good central town location with easy access to local pubs and restaurants and convenient to the motorway. Good breakfast but room quality a little disappointing for the price. Friendly and welcoming staff.

Only stayed the one night to see family. Paid for a superior double. The lock on the door didn't work. However, Chris ( I think?) Was very helpful and switched us up a grade to the largest room. Overall, a satisfactory visit.

I don't want to tell you about this in case it sells out early for 2017 (best kept secret in Stafford!) Staff were great, event was great, food was great, music was great. An excellent way to bring in the New Year: try it! You might like it

Stayed her for New Year's Eve and it was fantastic. Food was beautiful, our room was lovely and the whole evening was wonderful. Finished off with a Gorjuss breakfast 😁 Wasn't our first stay and will not be our last!

Very pleasant meal with a good atmosphere four course meal, followed by a disco and cheese buffet. Champagne and canapés on arrival. Great to be able to park on site. Nice happy crowd of people attending and excellent service. Might have been nice to include a bottle of wine or coffee with the meal.
