This is the second time we have used this restaurant for a family reunion. Because there were 13 of us we were put in a separate room with access straight onto the terrace. Two of our guests did not arrive until 1.20pm although the table was booked for 1.00pm, but the waiting staff were very patient and dealt with all... More

It's about time I gave The White Swan a good review because we have been regular visitors over several years and to date have always had a really good experience. For starters, the staff are brilliant - always friendly and polite with efficient service and just the right level of attention. The food is always lovely and the chef there... More

It was my husband's birthday and we wanted a buffet style light dinner which was GF so he didn't feel that he was missing out. We had requested a selection of sandwiches for 10 people and were delighted that the chef had got in GF bread especially. Every care was taken to make sure it was all GF. Lovely staff,... More

The White Swan is one very good pub/restaurant with an excellent chef. There are perhaps around 30+ menu items and a few daily specials on the chalk board. We have visited a few times when traveling along the A27 at Arundel and I can recommend it very highly. Food portions and quality are extremely good and there is a lot... More

This is a brilliant place to eat. My partner and I have just had a midweek break in Arundel and ate here on our last night. The young male bartender could not have been more pleasant and helpful, the food was great, the house red was more than palatable and the atmosphere very relaxed. We would certainly visit / eat...

I normally write a review on trip advisor if I've had a great experience. I want people to be aware of the awful service and attitude from the staff. We went on a Sunday for a birthday celebration, the food ordered from the menu took just under a hour, once the main course meals were finished the waiter scraped the... More

Stopped for lunch en route to Avisford Park. Comfy sofas, good range of light bites but inside was a bit gloomy with little natural light. We enjoyed our lunch tho' & the bar staff were friendly & helpful

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
