A charming Inn in the centre of town by the river, full of character combining the traditions of an old inn, dating back to the 16th and 17th Century with a contemporary twist.

The Swan has the comfort and style of a quality hotel with the character and charm of an old country inn. All 12 guest rooms are unique and are of different shapes and sizes. All rooms are en-suite and fully equipped with luxury bedding, towels, toiletries, flat screen televisions, tea and coffee making facilities, hairdryers, writing desks and complimentary mineral water. And the hotels private car park makes arriving by car a luxury while those arriving by train have a short walk between the station and the hotel.

The restaurant focuses on Thai food, offering a full Thai menu with an exciting range of home cooked and authentically food prepared by the hotels' own Thai Chef. There is also a 'Pub Classics menu on offer for the less adventurous, having said that the wide range of dishes available from across Thailand means that not all offerings are spicy, so the relaxed casual atmosphere often entices 'first timers' to venture onto the Thai menu! While the more experienced will enjoy the authentically prepared flavours.

The Hotel is ideal for smaller wedding receptions of up to 60 people in the main hotel or Coach House or evening functions in the cellar bar of up to 80 people, or combine the venues together and the hotel can host over 100.

The team will make all your arrangements for you, from menus to decorations and advice on how to get the best from the organisation of your special day, you can relax sure in the knowledge that the hotel’s team will have thought of everything!

Not only does the hotel cater for weddings but it is a popular venue for special occasions including birthdays, christenings and anniversaries, either booking one of the function rooms privately or simply booking a table in the restaurant, where they are quite happy to accommodate groups of 20-30 people.

Facilities available to hire include; The Coach House, The Cellar Bar, The Restaurant, the Front Bar and the Lounge, or for the exclusive event why not consider hiring the whole hotel, including the 12 well-appointed bedrooms.
