We popped in sunday of the bank holiday, the restaurant was extremely busy, we hadn't booked, we will in future. The staff were very accomodating and managed to put us into the lounge area for our table of 5. They had a carvery, which we all had, but you could eat from the menu and the specials board as well.... More

Just been for the carvery - it was delicious! Pork was lovely and tender, lots of it too. Would definitely recommend - only negative is that the service was a little slow.

After finding out that most pubs don't serve lunch after 2.30 we were relieved to find the White Swan Inn. Once inside we were impressed with the friendly staff and welcoming decor. We had been expecting a selection of bar snacks but instead there was a 3 course menu with something for everyone. The food was great and we are... More

I enjoyed the perfectly cooked chips, ( my wife thought they were oven cooked), I'm wasn't so sure but a good reasonably priced evening dinner. My... More

The service was very good with very helpful staff eager to make the experience a great one. The food was very well cooked and presented and the profiteroles just rounded off a perfect dining experience.

A relative and partner were staying in arundel so we met up for a meal. We wanted somewhere not to formal or expensive and having passed the The White Swan several times we thought we would give it a try. The White Hart is divided almost in two, one half the traditional pub which had quite a few guests enjoying... More

I'd start this review by saying that I have had previous poor experiences here but felt it was due another look in. We all opted for the carvery, and wow have these guys upped their game. None of the previous bland and unappetising; first class cauliflower cheese, great roasted parsnips, lovely gravy ... a real surprise and made such a... More

We were seated immediately as wasn't busy and waiter took a drinks order and we asked them to come back after we decided which they didn't. After that Everything else we wanted we had to order at the bar because nobody came over. Food was served quickly but wasn't great, thought overpriced for the quality. Service dreadful, almost non-existant. Wouldn't... More
