Burger & Peanut Butter!

Stopped for a lunch and enjoyed a burger with peanut butter.......sounds crazy but really tasty!! Also had a good gluten free menu for my wife who enjoyed the fish pie. Pleasant surroundings and good service at a reasonable price, we will visit again when passing.

We spent along weekend at the White Swan Inn which we thoroughly enjoyed the staff were very friendly and efficient. Our bedroom was attractive and clean and the bath towels were lovely! The food was good particularly the breakfasts - would recommend and would like to stay again.

We booked a table but it wasn’t necessary, perhaps the wild weather on a wet Friday was keeping people away???? Large area for eating and drinking. Not very warm and lacking atmosphere. Good selection of ales. Decent food, pub grub; J’s meal included quite a large portion of thick cut chips (personally I think the trend towards thick chips is... More

As we entered the restaurant, I noticed how it desperately needed renovation. Even though it was clean (especially the toilets), because of the bad condition of the furniture and walls, it looked dirty and really untidy. When we went there, it was pretty quiet but still after a waiter took our drinks order, we were forgotten and we had to... More

Stayed a few days with freinds. Very good value for money. Loved the room. I had everything I needed. The tv could be a bit bigger for my liking. Food was fantastic. Well done chef. I would definitely visit again if I had the opportunity.

As we entered this pub that we have driven past fit the last 20+ years I was a little worried about what I was letting myself in for.... The bottom 6 inches of it were rotten.

I have previously given great reviews to this place and we have become regular customers, but our experience on our last visit didn't come up to scratch. Perhaps they're all a bit jaded after a busy December and New Year, but some bucking-up is required. On arriving and asking to eat, we took our drinks to our table and were... More

This is the second time we have called in for dinner on our way home from gatwick. There is easy parking behind the hotel, service is quick and friendly and the food is definitely home cooked. Both steak and ale and mushroom and Stilton pies met with approval. Pulled pork, and Parma wrapped monkfish also delicious. Not expensive and will... More

We were a large group and since I am able to enjoy any food it must be brought to your attention the following if you have a restricted diet.
