Comfortable (and very clean!) room, great breakfast and a very warm welcoming atmosphere. The staff really looked after us. We will be visiting again when we are next in Thame. A great experience all around.

Town centre location, clean, well furnished bar area, lovely log burner blazing away, rooms are well furnished and spotless, fabulous old building with beams and sloping floors. Breakfast was plentiful, set on the first floor overlooking the market square. Wonderful stay.

A friendly place but you don't get the measure of wine you pay for. Disappointing. This is the kind of service I expect in South East Asia. In the UK I expect to get what I paid for. Supposedly this is the "first world".

Visited the Swan to enjoy their excellent open mic session (Sunday afternoon). Sadly the music was all there was to enjoy. The one bar staff is allowed to struggle whilst the manager drinks on the other side of the bar with her boyfriend, who looks at everyone as if he is gonna knock you out if you breath the wrong...

We popped into The Swan today for lunch as headed to Thame to look around the market. The service was friendly but the food was a real disappointment! We both had the hot dog which came out as a sausage in a dry bun with some semi fried onions and that was nested on fries and in a bowl!!! Clearly...
