Very nice hotel, but the poor of choice and quality of evening meal made the overall experience a disappointment, especially considering the cost. We made the mistake of booking a DB&B deal in advance, in future we would only book a B&B deal, then you are not such a 'captive audience'.

We visited the black swan on the 20th January we opted for the six course taster menu and had the wine to go with the courses.

Excellent hotel with great services, luxury your dog can enjoy. Great staff, warm and friendly who can't do enough for you. Relaxing in the lounge drink tea by the fire, after a long dog walk is great. The food is wonderful, a great place to relax.

We usually visit a couple of times a year. We stayed just into the New Year & everything was still Christmassy, loved the idea of a wreath on every bedroom door! Super food as usual all round & friendly welcome from the moment we arrived to when we left.
