Our second visit with friends - we enjoyed it so much the first time! Busy Sunday lunch time, so we did book. Really good choices of vegetables and three types of roast meat to choose from. The roast beef cooked to perfection. We didn't bother with a starter, but finished with excellent sweet choices and then our coffee. Staff friendly... More

Stopped in for a quick afternoon drink and received a warm welcome. Lovely old building with bags of history and a fine array of real ales. Martin sampled a pint of Pit Stop that had him wishing he wasn't restricted to one (he was driving).

I have dined here many times, but on this occation I noticed thing where different. I took my daughter out for dinner, but sadly when my order arrived, the meat was burnt on the underside and very dried out. I attempted to get the attention of the staff, who were busy chatting up the males at the bar, when I... More

Had dinner at The Swan today with my other half. We eat here reasonably regularly as live locally. As usual, the staff were friendly and the food was great. My other half had the slow roasted belly of pork which was really good with lots of very crunchy crackling. I had the cod and chips which was also very good.... More

We stayed here for two nights. Good honest clean room, nice outlook over fields, plenty of wild life to watch as well. The restaurant serves good food, plenty of it, you certainly don't have much room for pud! Staff very firnedly and helpful. All in all a very pleasant couple of nights. Would certainly stay here again.

We stayed overnight Saturday 26th. The room was comfortable and clean. Good pub food and good real ale was enjoyed. The staff were made us very welcome and really looked after us from the moment we arrived until we left. Would be happy to stay again.

Popped in for lunch. I drive past this place regularly and the car park is always pretty full. Have been in a few times in the past but not for some time. Bar was quite full but we ate in the restaurant which wasn't too busy. I had the Thai Chicken curry special ,which was very tasty. Other people with... More

The barns are great for a few day or week long stay with two floor accommodation including washing machine, fridge, garden space etc. Only down sides are that the walls are thin and noise travels plus the window blinds are rather thin. Pub seemed nice and although we did not eat the wine was very good quality.
