As locals we love the White Swan all year round, but we love the warmth and coziness of the hotel especially when the winter comes around.

I know winters not quite here yet but as our winter drinking place we went there Sunday night, the large settees just inside the front door are very inviting... whether it be a large glass of red or a long cold beer the White Swan is just amazing.

The staff were friendly, the Fullers Ales are always top class. It may be slightly more expensive than some of the normal pubs but it’s worth every penny.

To future visitors of Stratford who have not yet been to the White Swan, whether it be for drinks or food or both, you will not be disappointed.

The White Swan a fabulous place to go... roll on winter so we take take up residence on those big comfy settees.

Dear Samfireman,

Thank you for your review.

What can I say?

Thank you for being so kind about what we do here - we all work really hard to provide that warmth and coziness you describe.

I look forward to seeing you on the settees very soon!

Regards,

Sol

We stayed here for one night when visiting Stratford to go to the theatre. I was expecting a standard pub with rooms and didn't have particularly high expectations for the food etc. We were proved wrong! The hotel is lovely, very quaint, immaculately clean and with very welcoming and helpful staff. Our room was spacious compared to some hotels and B&Bs with a very good bathroom and shower. We had an early meal in the pub before going to the theatre and found the standard of food to be very good with service to match (a special mention for Liene). Wouldn't hesitate to book again on our next trip to Stratford.

We came here for our 40th wedding anniversary. It was absolutely phenomenal. The hotel is clean, comfortable and the staff could not have done more to make our stay more pleasurable. They were outstanding. The breakfast was also delicious. The Eggs Benedict was particularly good. This is our second stay at this hotel and we will be back for a third in the near future. A special thank you for the little treat the hotel provided for us in our room as an anniversary gift. It was a lovely gesture. Thank you, White Swan! We hope to see you again soon. Chris & Chris x

Dear snozzberrrylicker,

Thank you for your review.

Happy Anniversary!

I am so pleased you had a phenomenal stay with us, and that the staff did all they could to make your stay pleasurable.

Breakfast is something we pride ourselves on too - often commented upon for the vast choice and quality.

What pleases me most is that this was not your first visit, and won't be your last - we look forward to seeing returning guests, and making them feel welcome.

Regards,

Sol

When visiting the theatre we always stay overnight and we always request a twin room. On this occasion our usual hotels did not have one available. We found The White Swan and booked a twin room. It had been quite a few years since going there for a meal. On arrival we were very impressed by the changes. The hotel staff were pleasant and efficient. The rooms were excellent. The breakfast was very tasty. The hotel is situated in the centre of Stratford. The only reason I did not score 5 is because it doesn't have a car park, although, there are many close by.

Dear jflemi829984,

Thank you for your review.

I am pleased that you came to stay with us recently, and that you were impressed by the changes. The hotel underwent a multi-million pound refurbishment in recent years and is very different now, as you saw.

It is a real shame that we don't have a car park - this is something we can't do anything about sadly - it's the price we have to pay for being so central - although there is one directly behind us, which is only about 50 yds from reception.

I hope we can welcome you on your next trip to the town, and that we can become your "usual" hotel!?

Regards,

Sol

Are already planning to return to Stratford and will definitely be returning here.
