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

We popped in for a quick lunch and ended up having a 3 course lunch, as our first course was spectacular. I had the Scotch Egg which was quite honestly one of the nicest things I have ever placed in my mouth. This was followed by the highly commendable fish and chips. Feeling greedy and ready for more, we decide... More

Love love love The White Swan & regardless if we go for lunch, dinner, drinks or just a snack the most noticeable factor is the consistently high standards relating to food & service! The attention to detail is unfailingly perfect, everything beautifully presented & tasting equally as good as it looks! We also love the fact if you order an... More

We had the set meal on Weds accompanied by taster wine and it was really good. I'm usually a bit wary of a set meal option especially when it is so reasonably priced but my worries were groundless, the meal was tasty and the portions reasonable. The service was very good and the atmosphere relaxed. Although the restaurant was quite... More

Ate here last night and really enjoyed it . Three course with a taster wine with each course for two was less than forty pounds and excellent value for money . The service could be abit more polished but that and the annoying rem music playing through the small speaker are our only negatives. We would go back anytime we... More
