Nice Country pub/eating place

Nice country pub, a little on the pricey side, but that said it attracts a different type of clientele which is a good thing if you're after a classy country pub. Food good, albeit a little on the pricey side but always busy so that's a good sign.

We called in for a meal having had a busy day. We had a pre-dinner drink and were then seated with no problem despite not having booked. The meal was delicious and the young waiter; Jamison; was delightful. We will definitely be returning! Thank you so much for a wonderful evening.

I have visited this restaurant many times; with my husband, with friends and with family. I don't think I've ever had a bad experience. The service is good, the food is extremely good (love the specials!) and the atmosphere is also good. There is also a nice seating area outside of the weather is nice. If I had to find... More

I booked the private dining room as a surprise for my fiancee's 40th birthday on Saturday 25th April. From the outset Alex and her team were fantastic in helping me with the surprise planning, the menus, pre-orders and everything else in between. On the night, even with 22 of us to contend with, everything went like clockwork. Luke who looked... More

On the basis that you should always find something positive to say: the ambience of the pub is very good and the owners have clearly invested a lot of money in the building and the fittings. It has a nice feel about it. The food was fine too. A nice menu and apart from my wife's potato which accompanied her... More

We have had several meals at the swan, and each one has been very good. This time we booked a lunch time table for 3, and as it was a sunny day we sat outside. The staff were friendly and helpful, and service was prompt and efficient. We each had a different main meal, and tasted each other's too. Families... More
