Good facilities in room however it was loud at night until about midnight so struggled to get to sleep. Bed wasn't that comfortable could feel the springs - wouldn't of expected to pay £90 more like £60. Check out quite early so had to rush to check out before we went to our event at 10.30. Facilities seemed quite good,...

we had 3 nights here and it was a lovely base for touring around. The Landlord and Staff were friendly and helpful and made us feel right at home and comfortable. Room was small but as you would expect from this type of property but it was very clean and comfy and very warm. Breakfast was delicious, I had requested...

We stopped for a spot of lunch on a day trip to sturminster newton. We both had sandwiches (bacon and a smoked salmon) which were served open. Really tasty and nice presentation, lovely helpful staff. Good value for money.

We've once again enjoyed a delicious and well served lunch at The Swan. Each repeat visit we wait with baited breath to see if standards have wavered or it's 'the chef's day off' but we've not been let down yet. Our next treat must be the Sunday Roast two course menu for £12.00.

Came here for lunch and ordered the burgers. We were really impressed. The burgers were excellent as expected from the £11.00 pricetag. Very nice salad and chips accompanied them. Along with 2 small cokes, the bill came to £28 which is on the high side for burgers.

Came here for Sunday lunch with Mum, Sister, and Brother in law. Lovely old pub located in middle of market town. Was very busy and it seemed that the lady taking orders was also serving in bar we ended up going to the bar to order as was so busy I think they need extra staff on Sundays! The food...

Stayed here with my wife and was really pleased with every element of our stay. The staff in the bar that checked us were really pleasant and made check in seamless. Dinner was really tasty and there was a wide selection and really reasonably well priced. Breakfast was cooked fresh and tasty and plentiful. Looking forward to our next stay.

“Rooms No 1 and 2 (maybe others) look out onto the Market Cross - stalls are set up at about 7.30 in the morning, but it is not noisy.”
