user reviews of Swan Hotel, Thaxted

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Hard to miss this place as its on a tight right turn and opposite the local church which has a tower and spire with the look of a huge space rocket. Big car park as well. From the out side The Swan, no hotel text appears on the sign, looks like a huge lovely country pub. Seats out the front facing the church, its great apart from the continual stream of traffic. Blimey its busy along this 'B' road.
Inside I'm afraid its the Green King corporate brand all the way. What a shame. Carpets all the way, super clean but awful electric plug points straight from Homebase and at eye level. There is no excuse for sloppiness like that. Beer was mainly Abbots which was fine, a good cider was available but otherwise it was the usual lager and black stuff from Dublin way. Food was the corporate menu type. It was a baking hot day so I went for the ploughman's, which was OK, but the mixed fruit desert was a right rip off. The fish platter was also fine, but I must say the burgers that went past us did look far better value. Typical Tory country manor place, no locals of the working type. Service was very good and cheerful.

More of a hotel than a pub but dont be put off the Ruddles County is always good as well as the Abbot and prices are not expensive bearing in mind it is a Hotel..
Popular the week-end when you can sit down on the sofa and read the national papers including the FT.

When you think this closed down 10 years ago due to lack of custom the turn around is impressive.

A spacious pub which seems just at home serving food, as well as serving a decent pint of real ale. The draft Ruddles County is worth the journey alone. The landlady was particularly welcoming following a long walk round the local area.

Handy for the Church opposite.
