Went on a quiet Saturday lunchtime, at the beginning of the serving period when the pub was quiet. The pub was very clean and well presented and had a 'traditional feel', dogs are allowed in the bar area. The pub serves typical country pub food and has a selection of real ales and other drinks. The staff were friendly and... More

We stopped here for a late lunch. Served for drinks by a chap named Ollie, very happy and helpful but think he must have been new. We got a table outside and ordered from the menu, 2 x hunters chicken and a kids spaghetti Bolognese. Our food arrived quickly but I looked and the hunters and was instantly disappointed. It... More

We were heading in to Lyndhurst to walk around town and decided to stop here, as we’d never been in before, for a spot of lunch. The bar lady was very helpful and took the order quickly allowing us to go and sit in the garden on the hottest day so far. The only negative I have is the waiting... More

We went to the swan for lunch today, we sat in the garden which was very pleasant. We have been here before and had good food. I must say that we waited ages to get our food, the staff seemed to be trying really hard but there seemed to be no organisation, they did not know who to take food... More

My family and I have visited this pub a number of times over the last year or so and I must say since it was taken over by new people last autumn it has improved no end. A lot of the food is now home cooked and you can really tell the difference. Also little things like log fires and... More

We had our daughters wedding at this venue and oh my goodness it was fantastic . The food was outstanding and the service was brilliant . We had a sit down 3 course meal for 80 people and I could not find fault with anything . Highly highly recommend this Inn

We have called in here for the last 20 years whenever we are in the area on our way to Bournemouth, or just visiting the New Forest. Today I have to say We were so disappointed. We stopped by and when inside a large party were being served lunch. I waited at the bar to order a drink for my... More

This is a lovely country pub, with log fires and beams. The service was friendly, you order and pay first at the bar. All four of us really enjoyed our food, the sirloin steaks were excellent. A few more peas or some salad garnish would have been nice as the helping of peas was tiny. The only real downside was... More

A refreshingly honest proper pub, that does what you want it to. Popped in for a bite to eat as we were driving throught the area- a nice looking pub, proper decor, and decent honest food. Good range of beers but was driving so couldnt get stuck in sadly.

I popped into the Swan Inn for Sunday lunch with by two children and we're greeted with a very friendly welcome. The owners came over and chatted to the children and made them feel very comfortable. We ordered from the children's menu which is ideal considering my little one has the appetite of a sparrow, and a seafood dish for... More
