The Swan is a local pub which sits at the heart of the town of Lydney in the Forest of Dean.  Situated right in the busy centre,  we are perfectly placed for those on business or leisure breaks.  With newly developed rooms, The Swan is now able to offer an affordable yet comfortable stay with the benefit of a home cooked breakfast included in the price. 


The Swans philosophy is for individuals to feel relaxed and comfortable, be that in our bar or in our accommodation.  With a real log fire and a wide range of beers, wines and spirits, we are the perfect place to unwind and relax.

The Swan also serves food throughout the day within the bar area or why not choose to dine in our restaurant, The Ugly Duckling which in a former life used to be the skittle alley to the hotel.  Situated next door to The Swan, our restaurant is open for lunch and dinner Wednesday to Saturday. 

The Ugly Duckling Restaurant is also the ideal venue to hold a celebration and can accommodate up to 50 people for a sit down meal or buffet.  Be it a wedding reception, birthday  or anniversary, let our team ensure you have a fabulous day.  Catering to provide a bespoke service, this ensures you have the food you desire whilst meeting any specific dietary needs, at a budget which suits you. 


Funeral wakes are also catered for to suit your requirements.


Need an outside catering service for your function?  Contact  the team at The Swan Hotel and Ugly Duckling as this is also a service we are able to provide.


After all....memories are made from great food and good times spent with those who we love.....
