Returned after a year or so and previously having had some lacklustre food. The restuarant was busy and full as the weather was bad, so no outside! Service was OK, friendly and attentive once it had got started. The the food was excellent, we had a sharing platter as a starter and two 'starters' as mains. Portion sizes seem to... More

I have been a regular here for a number of years and I have always been impressed by every aspect of this great pub. Food, service, decor, price.... It's great. A few Sundays ago I organised my Fathers surprise 70th birthday lunch in the lovely private dining room. Myself and my family could not of asked for more. Everything that... More

Great function room for wedding reception. Bit disappointed with cost of prosecco a bottle and even more so with the option of bringing our bottles but a corkage fee of £20.00 per bottle.

Although the price is a little steep - the food, staff and environment are all excellent. The garden area is lovely in the summer and a nice selection on the menu. More of a treat than a regular eat-out restaurant.

Went for a meal with a friend on a Wednesday evening and we often dine out mid week and a lot of local pubs can be empty and lacking atmosphere. It was lovely to be in a busy lively restaurant with lots of people sitting in the garden enjoying the evening sun. Wed seemed to be steak night so we... More

Probably some of the best pub food I have tasted - not the cheapest but quality food and decent portions, fish dishes were delicious. good service but actually a little overbearing at times - hard to get the balance right of too much and too little - but that is nick picking.

Im so glad this gastro pub has got its act back together. The menu, quality of food and staff have got it all right again. We sat outside under the pergola and it rained but we stayed dry as the staff pulled down the curtains and turned the heaters on. Highly suggest the duck sharing plate for its jus alone.... More

We stopped off here for lunch on Sunday with a group of friends; it was a hot day and we sat outside which was very pleasant. There was a good choice of food from the normal menu, as well as Sunday lunch options and a BBQ menu. Overall we all enjoyed it and the food was very good. However, the... More

The Swan usually delivers in terms of food, and today was no exception. I have to say their chips were the best I have ever eaten, ( actually they weren't mine but that would be nit picking). Just be aware that there is no waiter service to take your food order outside, which is a bit odd. They also brought... More

We have come here a few times for drinks, and decided to come for an early Sunday roast as the setting of the restaurant is so lovely. Turned out they had the summer barbecue fired up, so we sat ourselves in the sun and shared BBQ ribs and a freshly grilled burger, with a summer salad side and baked beans.... More
