The Swan at Hay Hotel is a delightful small hotel and restaurant in Hay-on-Wye in The Brecon Beacons National Park where a warm welcome awaits you. Set in a snug 'n' cosy grade 2 listed Georgian coaching inn, the hotel is full of character, from the original Georgian windows overlooking the garden to the cobbled stable block, with the original horses' name places still intact.

Local food lovers are regulars in the hotel's two restaurants – The Garden Room, which serves dinner in the Summer and Sunday lunches, and the bistro which serves lunch and evening meals. The hotel also has a garden ideal for summer al fresco dining. We have created a traditional British menu with favourites including pan-seared scallops with Leintwardine black pudding and pea puree; Confit shoulder of Welsh Marches lamb with mashed potato and red wine jus; and whimberry tart with homemade vanilla ice cream. Our traditional Sunday Lunch is very special, with some of the largest Yorkshire puddings you will ever see!
