The Swan Inn

Tripadvisor rating: 4.5/5

Location: Badminton Road, Nibley, BS37 5JF

One reviewer wrote: “They do an amazing vegan roach option on their Sunday Menu which consists of a pine nut and Cranberry nut roast. This was lovely and very tasty (this is also the vegetarian option but with the veggie option you get a Yorkshire pudding too). With the vegan toast you also get a great selection of vegetables and potatoes and a vegetable gravy is also served. This was a very good size and very filling. All lovely ingredients.”

Another said: “Called here whilst on holiday in the area in September. The menu was varied and when it came the food was excellent. The staff were very friendly and the service of the highest order. A great find and we left a recommendation in the "book" at the holiday cottage we stayed in for others to visit.”

Another said: “I very rarely go out for a Sunday roast as I love cooking my own, but as it was only the two of us this week we decided to treat ourselves. What a treat it was! Absolutely stunningly tender roast beef, perfectly cooked seasonal veg and roast potatoes.
We had just enough room for one of the homemade desserts each that were epic!”

The evening meal and breakfast were both of a high quality, served hot and an unexpected delight for a local inn. Well done to the team at The Bell Inn.”
