Nice little pub for lunch

Have been here a couple of times, once with friends and once with family. Both visits were for lunch. Food was lovely, pretty decent sized portions, and fairly swift service. An enjoyable lunch on both visits.

The St. George's Night Supper celebration at The Swan on Saturday night was enjoyed by everyone, many of whom entered into the spirit of the occasion by wearing funny, interesting and beautiful costumes. Alastair, Julie and the staff worked so hard to give us a top quality four course meal and great entertainment.

I recently had the tremendous pleasure in attending a St Georges night Dinner at the Swan. The event itself was full of history and fun. Several people were dressed up in old time costumes, this included all the staff. The Meal; was absolutely beautiful. I don’t normally state this. The Sirloin of Beef was magnificently cooked. The company was great... More

Excellent evening celebrating St George's day - many thanks to Alistair, julie and the team for putting on the event. Great to see so many people entering into the spirit of the evening - the 4 course meal was excellent and service great - would highly recommend

A great evening last night at the Swan - the first Saint George's Day Supper to be held there and hopefully not the last! Lots of effort by the guests to dress up in a truly British style added to the atmosphere, augmented by music and interesting speeches. The traditional British menu was well thought out and executed - great... More

We stumbled across the Swan Inn late in the day on our way back from a local garden centre. What a pleasant surprise. A traditional English country pub with décor, service and food to match. The room we chose was in need of some minor attention (perhaps a lick of paint here and there) but was generally clean and tidy.... More

Have been here a few times now not very busy inside the pub today as such lovely weather so many people in garden. However we choose to eat inside. The menu is not over exciting but my partner had scampi chips and mushy peas which he enjoyed I opted for a veggie burger with sweet potato fries and chilli sauce... More

We booked a table at 8pm for 3 couples on a Saturday night. We arrived early & were seated. We ordered our food by 8pm. We ordered 2 sharing starters. The first starter arrived at 8:45, the 2nd 10 minutes later. We had already been to ask where our food was but we were told that they were busy. The... More

Popped in the Swan on an off chance for a table on Saturday and was seated relatively quickly but informed of a wait for food before we ordered so we had chance to decide if we would stay or move on.This was fully understandable as the place was packed with people and from the booking sheet I caught a glimpse...

Dined (eventually) at the Swan on Saturday evening. Booked a table for 8pm, ate at 9.45pm. We were told that there was a delay on the food but did not expect a one and three quarter hour wait. Many complaints from other diners, some leaving before main course arrived. Most annoying thing, people who had not booked were being taken... More
