The Swan Hotel
The four-star, independently owned Swan Hotel ticks so many boxes; it has been featured in The Michelin Guide since 1911, boasts a well-stocked bar with over 100 gins and has a fantastic view of the west front of Wells Cathedral.
The head chef and kitchen brigade are proud to support Somerset suppliers, and the quality of the food has been recognised with the award of two AA rosettes, which The Swan Hotel has retained for the past 12 years.
Menus change with the seasons and guests can choose from an all-day menu packed with family favourites or enjoy a more formal three course dinner in the restaurant.
During the summer, Swan Terrace and the Walled Garden Café are open for al fresco dining and drinking. The terrace has an incredible cathedral view, and the Walled Garden Café is a peaceful suntrap. The hotel is licensed to hold civil wedding ceremonies and offers private dining. This former posting house has been attracting guests for 600 years and continues to delight guests to this day.
