Great Food and Ambience

We celebrated my dads birthday and there were eleven of us seated. We were well looked after and the food was great. A good choice for all courses, and the food tasted great. The service was timed just right between courses and we were well looked after. There were two little blips though, one was... read more

We were visiting the area and decided to re-visit the Swan after 40 years, having fond memories of the pub and village from that time. What a pleasant surprise to find a village pub that has not only survived but is doing (justifiably) so well ! Our food was excellent : an inventive menu, perfectly cooked steak and delicious desserts.... More

After a long break, we went back to The Swan At Salford again with two friends for our anniversary. There were a few couples dining, but was not busy as it was a Monday evening. The restaurant was warm, and welcoming and the decor was modern and bright, and there was plenty of seating for pre dinner drinks. The menu... More

Brilliant service from the moment you arrive topped off by amazing food. There's quite a range available on the menu plus various specials as well, so there's something for everyone. I had the rump steak (medium) and it was cooked perfectly and so tender a blunt knife could have cut through it. Not the cheapest place to eat around but... More

Had a lovely meal Thursday evening at The Swan. I had the crab and shrimp starter that was very well presented and full of flavour and for my main I chose the sea bass - equally nice! I would recommend - friendly atmosphere and lively decor. The mocktails were good too - great when I am always the chauffeur!

Consistently decent food and, usually, service to match. Our most recent two visits were no exception. Like most gastropubs in the area, there seems to be a high churn of staff. However, they set their standards high - so must be paddling furiously under the surface.

Style over substance as in too many places these days. Nothing about the restaurant justified the expensive evening. The decor is tired & the food ordinary at best which is predictable when you see past the fancy descriptions on the menu. Won't go back.
