The Swan is very recently reopened. We were really impressed with the welcoming appearance of the bar and indeed the bar manager Adam,who greeted us personally. The dining room is very spacious and there is a board of specials changed weekly. All the food is freshly prepared on the premises and our meals arrived quickly, piping hot and were delicious....
