Have dined here many times - lunchtime and evenings - and have always had excellent service and food. So it was a no-brainer when choosing a venue for meeting up with a couple of friends and try out the Wine & Dine menu last Wednesday. What a fantastic way to experience dishes that we would probably not normally choose, and... More

So pleased to see that this great little pub has a new restaurant manager. Very attentive and helpful and certainly what was needed! Good food although the wine and dine menu suggests a "large" glass of wine which turns out to be a 175ml measure.... in most places a large is 250ml.

We went to the White Swan to celebrate a family members birthday. The staff were extremely accommodating and very attentive. There were 6 children and 7 adults so quite a large group yet was not a problem and there were no delays. The food was lovely, the selection of wine was huge and both food and wine were reasonably priced.... More

Fairly big party of us and main waitress was good. However, constant leaning in over us and inbetween us whilst some were still eating trying to clear the table! So annoying. Even reaching over for the pepper pots! Food generally good but well over priced. Scallops ( 2) for £16! Wine also expensive. Have enjoyed in the past but got... More

Lovely pub, nice beer , decent wine list which is not stupidly priced. Had steak tartare which was divine and the roast beef lunch was amazing....cauliflower cheese to die for. Service was... More

We've dined at the White Swan on a number of occasions & the food is always fantastic. Good menu & nicely presented & catered for special dietary requirements of our friends. The service is normally spot on, we did have a new waitress on one visit that was not up to the usual standard expected of the White Swan, but... More

We called into The White Swan (starving!) on way home from grandson's Nativity in Yelvertoft. We had heard from a work colleague of my husband that he recommends eating here. We were very well "looked after", the food was excellent, and we would definitely return and recommend.
