What a wonderful place! Cosy, warm, excellent customer service (polite and friendly-couldn't do enough for you) and the food...stunning. Best fat chips I've ever eaten! Lovely touches include handmade butter shortbreads with your coffees and a macaroni cheese to rival my own. Will definitely return.

This place is lovely! Drove past and thought we'd stop for a bite to eat, and I'm glad we did! The staff were friendly, and the food was fantastic! I had the burger and my other half had the crab linguine, both were amazing. Will definitely be coming back!

Came here for my friend's wedding back in December. The staff were lovely and friendly, but when serving food at a sit-down meal I think that there probably should be for uniform attire to wear. They looked a little scruffy (nothing personal) and when you are paying for a wedding, it should probably be taken more seriously. Other than than,... More

The White Swan is in a remote location, but well worth the trip. Very quiet for a Friday night, but don't let that put you off. More for location, rather than quality. Outstanding service and lovely food.

We stayed at the Hilton Avisford Park but came here for food and how glad am I. The food was beautiful I had the steak pie and apple crumble and could not have eaten another bite. Portions were huge and the food was to die for. The staff were also very friendly. So glad we found this pub.

We went here for a family get together, aged 1 to 80, for a Sunday lunch. The food was plentiful, hot and delicious. The staff friendly, polite, and helpful. We were a large party and they got the seating spot on. We have now been back twice more.
