We had been looking forward to going to the White Swan as it had been recommended by several people locally and the reviews were good. As with a previous reviewer, maybe it was a bad day, but we found the service to be awful, even though the food was very good. The waitress strongly pushed us to sit at our... More

I have eaten at The Swan on a number of occasions and have always enjoyed an excellent meal in very relaxed surroundings. Last Saturday I visited with my sister and I felt I had to do a review to reflect the very high standard of everything we experienced. The halibut was one of the best dishes I have ever tasted...

We went to the White Swan one Sunday lunch time without a booking and it started well, although the restaurant was only half full and we were asked if we had a reservation and had to wait whilst they checked.. The roast dinners were cooked very well and the beef was rare as we like it and when we saw... More

Thank you for your review. I would just like to respond to your comments regarding our puddings. I would like to assure you that none of our puddings or any of our dishes are bought-in products. For the baked alaska that you refer to, we make the ice cream which we set into molds and freeze. We then cut out... More

We went here for dinner on a Saturday night, the staff were very helpful, extremely friendly and the service was great. The food was amazing and i enjoyed all my courses including the little appetizer they dish up. The bread is freshly baked and tasted delicious. I will definitely return to this restaurant very soon.

So, we have travelled the length of the M6 only to discover it's bedlam and mayhem at junction 1. We still have miles to go, so it's off the motorway and into the lovely country lanes that lead to the Miss Marple-esque village of Shawell. Excellent beer was ordered (I can't remember what, I've slept since then - but I... More

First time at The White Swan for their much-raved-about champagne breakfast & wow were we impressed; it was absolutely delicious & worth every penny! We were welcomed & greeted by our favourite Waitress, Hannah, whom as always, had a smile & a cheery disposition! We had a glass of straight champagne & a glass of Buck's Fizz, both crisp, chilled...

I'm glad that the recent reviews for The White Swan have been so good recently - we were hoping for a similar experience when we booked for a family lunch to celebrate our daughters birthday. Unfortunately we weren't so lucky. The venue is well designed but seems to lack warmth and atmosphere - the other two tables that were already... More

After reading the reviews on here about the excellence of the The White Swan, my partner and I simply couldn't wait to see for ourselves! We arrived at 7:45 for our table booked at 8.00 and were greeted by the barman (Gaz ) who served us promptly, and served my wife a Peach Bellini which she noted was superb and... More

Having only discovered the White Swan in the last few months we have enjoyed every one of our 3 visits. The refurbishment by the new owners has been carried out to a very high standard and is conducive to the creation of a very relaxing atmosphere. All the staff are very friendly and very efficient enabling a high level of... More
