This pub is undergoing a big refurbishment and looks to be moving much more up market. The work to the building looks good so far but the new menu is a bit limited and promises more than it delivers. The sandwiches are ok but the bread, although good, is thick cut making them difficult to eat. Chips seem to come... More

Had a lovely time, very relaxing , cosy fire, friendly staff and excellent food! We ate both nights of our stay in the restaurant as it was so good. Close to Malvern Hills for walks. All in all highly recommend for a short break.

Firstly the staff are very friendly and helpful when dealing with us and have taken care to provide a suitable table, light and warmth etc. Being elderly mother has eaten from the childrens menu and this...

I stayed here for just one night, a Saturday evening. I and a colleague eat in the restaurant ordering a fillet steak and it was cooked so well, almost perfect. The room was clean and comfortable but the TV was so small (12" approx). The bathroom again was clean and well appointed but slightly tricky with the shower as the... More

Staying at the Caravan & Camping Site do walked the mile to this pub, and we were delighted we did. Very well mannered staff, lovely little Pub with a great selection if Wines. Food was superb. We went for Lamb and Duck. Beautifully presented and even better tasting. Highly recommend and shall revisit for sure. Very well priced!

We have just spent an enjoyable weekend at The Swan. We were joined, for a pre-arranged lunch by 14 other family members and had pre-ordered our meals. These ranged from sandwiches through to hot main meals. All were served together and all the hot meals were hot. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, who had re-arranged the dining... More

Second time dining. 3 of us on a busy Saturday night, staff and service really good and attentive atmosphere great, food amazing. Had old spot pork to start which was cooked spit on and steak for main would recommend both, the perfectly cooked rare steak and the presentation is worthy of fine dining. Great place would strongly recommend. Many thanks.

I took my elderly mother for a snack lunch. The sandwiches (minus fries, we chose not to have) were delicious as was the side salad. I'm quite worldy-wise but thought the pricing on the menu was deceptive, ie: Beef with horseradish £7 1/2 This should read: £7.50! Others were £7 1/4, £7 3/4. Why oh why?!!

We went for dinner on Monday night, it wasn't busy but there were a few people having a drink. The staff were really friendly and the place looked so pretty with open beams, fairy lights and roaring fires. After ordering we were given olives and home made pork scratchings which were lovely. I had Rib Eye steak and it was... More

Six of us enjoyed Sunday lunch here on a cold, grey day. Lovely warm ambience inside, fairly busy but didn't feel cramped. Took a while to take our orders but service improved as diners started to leave. Food was very good quality, good choice of menu considering it was a Sunday, presented nicely and arrived hot. Will definitely be going... More
