Having been a customer of this pub 4 years ago, very disappointed now. Service bad, Sunday roast meat bad, not a lot of meat from all the fat of the lamb. Had to wait long time for order to be taken, even longer for the bread rolls, which were not home made. Roast potatoes not good..... liver over cooked. floating...

we stopped on our way towards Standard airport and had a nice lunch. Friendly staff and a reasonable menu, although a little limited. It would have been nice to see a traditional pie. The beers were Greene King and the IPA was delicious. There seemed to be quite a lot of people having lunch which is a good sign.

The 4 rooms are in an annex outside overlooking the garden. They are well equipped, but lighting is poor. When we arrived we tried to book a local taxi, without any success. On hearing about this, the manager took us in his car to our family party. The breakfast is great, which is in the pub dinning area. Staff are...

The landlord and staff at the pub made us feel like a part of the family and the level of service was great - they were very accommodating/attentive. Cooked breakfast was provided on weekends and public holidays, with an...

Stayed one night here. Chalet style room round back of pub with views of large garden and countryside - very comfortable and quiet. Quintessentially English village, beautiful location and olde worlde pub. Promised everything.

Stayed here for a little over a week and loved it. Excellent food in the evenings (breakfast to order too); decent rooms which are cleaned daily; and probably needless to say, very quiet. Ida, the lady who does the rooms, is lovely. She saw that I had some chicken in the fridge and the next day there was butter, a...

I stayed at The Sword Inn Hand during my business trip to London and surroundings recently. What a great place! I love the accommodation, the food is excellent, and the people working there are very friendly too. A very cosy room, with coffee facilities and TV. Quaint... It feels just like at home. Totally recommended!

We stayed here last year and enjoyed our room so much and the whole ambiance of the pub that we booked in again. We were not disappointed. On our last visit I mentioned the need for Wi Fi in the rooms. It has been installed, avoiding dashes to the pub to go on line !! well done Jeremy for listening...

A great combination of pub, restaurant &b&b. The service is among the most friendly and courteous I have experienced anywhere. Nothing is too much & I loved the proactive approach the staff took. The rooms are well proportioned *furnished with character. Highly recommended... & great value
