Hidden gem that needs shouting about!

What a hidden gem! A great find! Very modern decor, lots of parking. Lovely staff, very accommodating. We went for Sunday Lunch, absolutely gorgeous. Choices for children, those that didn't want a roast and gluten free. We can't wait to return for our wedding anniversary! Thank you White Swan 👌🏼

Spoke to Tim the week before about the chefs table,it sounded so nice we booked our family in for Friday 17/7. It was a great experience very reminiscent of a Michelin restaurant with each course explained and then brought to us in a flourish. We had the opportunity to enter the kitchen and cook ourselves,something a number of the party... More

We had a work do here a few weeks ago. The food was very nice I must say however one dish was forgotten so one of us had to wait some time. Can't say anything about value for money as I did not pay. Very enthusiastic member of staff serving us ;) Would go back privately...

Thank you for writing a review of the White Swan, it is always pleasing to read comments such as yours. Apologies for the minor mishap with the main course, a simple error by a well-meaning staff member led to one of the dishes being delayed. Kind regards Tim Healey Restaurant Manager More

We met friends halfway for lunch and chose this place based on the reviews. Given the quality of the food and excellent service the lunch menu is an absolute bargain. The food was beautifully prepared by a great chef, and the dishes had unusual ingredients which combined to make 4 gorgeous plates of food. Highly recommended

What a little gem of a place! Very nicely decorated, lots of parking at the back of the pub and from the moment you walk in the door you are greeted and looked after by lovely staff. The menu offers a choice of the traditional Sunday roasts and in addition some alternatives for those seeking something a little more creative.... More

My wife and I visited the White Swan at Shawell based on a number of recommendations from friends. We were not disappointed. Granted the prices are slightly on the expensive side, but the service and quality of food and taste, allows this fact to sneak by. If your expectations are to get a large portion, than sadly you are in... More

We went here for a birthday celebration, although have been meaning to go for a while after seeing the reviews coming through! The decor is first class - a super renovation of what was an old tired pub has resulted in a really chic interior where there is a great balance between modern & fresh within a classic English pub!...
