After our recent visit we shall certainly not be returning. After the many attempts it took us to place an order due to most of the menu being unavailable, we were served by an exceptionally rude waitress, who quite clearly should not be in a customer facing job role. She was extremely unhelpful and rude. Not only were we subjected... More

Small but comfortable room, conveniently right by the station. Very good selection of vegetarian options on the pub menu, inc two dishes never tasted before which were great. Friendly staff who let us check in early.

Where do I start? Well, first off, the place is a very short walk to the station but they've got a big car park if you're coming by car. We arrived and checked in, an hour early but it wasn't any trouble, a nice welcome. Our room was in the old stable block outside so we had our own front... More

Starters out of stock, then burger and chips for main ( can't get it wrong surely?) Burger was cold and chips hard due to not being cooked properly, also parts missing no onion rings. When the waitress came to ask if all was ok, we were offered a desert free of charge, I'm guessing they were running low on ice... More

We stayed here to be local for a family event. The young lady who checked us in was welcoming and pleasant - and, as we later saw, very hard-working. All credit to her. We had a meal here that evening - quite acceptable, and the service was good. Typical pub food, which was what we expected. Our room was OK,... More

For the money, it's not a bad stay. We stayed for three nights. The pub food wasn't great unfortunately. The room was nice, few cobwebs but generally it was pretty clean. The major thing I would consider if you are a light sleeper is the rail way and traffic are quite noisy. The pub also receives deliveries in the morning... More

Very attentive staff in a quite rural setting. Very much enjoyed the food especially the fish dish was very well cooked and deliciously seasoned so well done chef! Would definitely be back. The floors in dinning room could be tidier but not a big deal

Good for a drink in the garden while waiting for a train but the food feels like microwaved ready meals rather than quality home cooked pub grub. On a busy summer's afternoon there were only two staff serving and on three occasions were we told that the kitchen had run out of something without any apology. Waited 40 minutes for... More

We met at the Swan for a family get-together - the food was excellent, (ESPECIALLY the battered fish!) and the service efficient, discreet and friendly. We were given a table in a quiet corner at our request and nothing was too much trouble - it was service with a smile all the way!Will definitely be back and will recommend this... More
