Called ahead to check had working electric vehicle charging point and polite young men assured yes. He was right, clearly marked available and easy to use. 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

Compared to what the Swan used to be, and we have eaten there on several occasions in the past, we found it to be extremely expensive for the size and quality of meals. Drinks were also expensive - we paid £6.60 for two small soft drinks!!! Overall it was disappointing and I doubt we will go back again!

We pass The Swan every day on our commute to work but had not been in for some years. We recently visited and were very disappointed. We intended eating but the menu was very pricey for what appeared to be fairly standard pub fare and so we went elsewhere. Drinks again were expensive but nothing out the ordinary, e.g. the... More

Extremely unimpressed and disappointed by this pub. Drinks seemed very expensive indeed (nearly £20 for 2 ciders, 2 Oranginas and 1 Diet Coke!!). In addition, the bar staff didn't seem to have a clue what they had on offer in terms of choices of bottled drinks. The food was OK but presented in a way to try to emulate a... More
