Whilst the experience of ordering eating and enjoying our lunch was very acceptable the owner and his wife decided to chip in with the service which in our opinion lowered the tone as he was dressed in what can only be described as his de-shevelled look , he wore a very scruffy looking pair of jeans and a denim shirt...

I have to admit we did not intend on popping in here last night but after a country walk we decided not to cook and to eat out instead. We were certainly not disappointed. The place was very unassuming when we arrived and was deceptively large. However when we ventured inside it was almost like being welcomed into somebodies house... More

I booked based on the trip advisor reviews. I was impressed when I booked that they asked if I had any allergies but then took no notice when we arrived. The restaurant was very quiet yet it took just under an hour to be served with our starter. The food was nice but the service wasn't up to standard. I'd... More

Wonderful food and excellent service. We were celebrating a special birthday for a special friend and the Silver Hind did not disappoint. A thoroughly enjoyable lunch. Great food, beautifully presented with professional and attentive staff. I would highly recommend the Silver Hind at Sway. Andy and Carol are excellent hosts.

So happy we spent our evening in the Silver Hind... The staff were friendly and welcoming and the relaxed atmosphere was charming. The menu was extensive for a 'pub' and the New World golden ale was a delicious pre-dinner tipple. The food was simply yummy. Not over pretentious but very high quality, i recommend the wild boar burger..awesome! The staff... More

This was top restaurant food in a pub. Interesting menu, beautifully presented and truly scrumptious. The staff were very friendly. Wish they were in my village!
