We visited the Swan with a group of friends for a meal, a catch up and to unwind after another busy week. You could easily pass the Swan without seeing it, if you do see it make a point of visiting. Great food, good selection of beers and friendly welcoming staff made this a place we will revisit again. Tips... More

We popped down again this week to be told that we only had 30 mins to drink our drinks... More

I am really sorry to hear that you had such a dissappointing meal at our pub. As you can see from the majority of our reviews, most people are very happy with the food we provide and the service. Obviously the experience you had was unacceptable. It sounds like you were actually served our vegetarian falafel burger by mistake. Mistakes... More
