We have always rated this pub for both food and beer, but visit today has changed our opinion. This is definitely off our list, the beer was not good, it was 'off'! Food was below average. Don't know what has changed but hopefully the Owners/Manager will read this and do something about it

Good service. Food good but starters and light bites rather expensive. Music good but obtrusive, difficult to carry on a conversation. Might be a good idea to have part of the dining area without speakers.

Well we popped in tonight at 2030 for a meal. I had Scampi and my wife had Ham egg and chips etc, a wine and a lager. Total £39. so not too expensive but nothing special either. Bit Disappointed as we always wanted to go in here and now its not on the "Must return list".

Pub is a lovely traditional old fashioned country pub. It serves very quality real ale, three to chose from all around 4% abc but one very local and good quality. Good choice of food... More

I have used the Swan on many occasion for a drink and a lovely meal. As I have said in an earlier review Sibyl and her staff were very good to my Mum and her dietary requirements. When Mum sadly passed away recently 'The Swan' was our first choice of venue for a post services meal. Sibyl and staff put... More

Stopped here on a long bike ride further south and couldn't have picked a better pub. Staff were very helpful and the location has an excellent beer garden perfect for the summer months. A good car park and excellent garden play facilities for children.

Booked a wedding buffet for approximately 40 guests. As we on a limited budget and we are not 'regulars' of the pub we did expect that the arrangement may prove difficult and we were pleasantly surprised that is was actually completely the opposite and exceptionally good value. Cybil the landlady and all the staff couldn't have been more helpful and... More

I had lunch here with my mum. The food was expensive, my salad arrived without potatoes and my mother's french beans were raw! Very disappointed! Will never return again. The staff was friendly however didn't seem to deal with the complain we made regarding the food. The bill was pricey considering the quality of the food served!

Nearly drove past on our way to Gatwick but as we were feeling like a quick half pint decided to call in . Car park plentiful with easy access to the bar. Met by friendly member of staff. As well as our half pint we also ordered a avocado and bacon roll. To say the least it was a wise... More
