We booked the Silver Hind for a surprise Birthday party, we had about 30 people attending and some children. The staff pulled out all the stops decorating our reserved area in 60th birthday balloons and banners and even creating an excellent menu for our guests. The staff there could not have done more for us they were attentive and just... More

Popped into the Silver Hind for a meal and a couple of pints...lovely food, friendly staff, and thoroughly entertaining conversation with the locals. Not quite sure what the reviewer who complained about the 'bigoted conversation' was on about, but suggest that they stick to 'coffee shops' and not pubs, if they expect everyone to have the same narrow - minded...

Thought we would try the Silver Hind once again after a previous indifferent visit. Sunday lunch was on the agenda and I must admit that the meal was acceptable apart from the Yorkshire puds, burnt and soggy, not like my mother made. Top end prices for pub food, and sat right in the middle of a bar Such a shame,... More

We were staying in the forest in our Motorhome and walked to Sway for a quiet drink in the Silver Hind on Saturday afternoon. It is not a large venue and we found that we were trapped by what appeared to be a few well-oiled locals sat and stood at the bar giving loud bigoted opinions that everyone else had... More

We went to the Silver Hind based on previous reviews and were not disappointed. The food was very well cooked and portions huge. Although the kitchen was kind enough to make me a half-sized dessert when I said I couldn't finish a full one! The prices (mains £12-15) seemed a bit steep to me but I think that is par... More

We went here for dinner on Saturday night with our house quest! Great atmosphere and the food was absolutely superb! It's great having a village restaurant like this! We are so pleased they have moved on from the devastating kitchen fire last year! Well done!
