Consistently good

The menu isn't that big but there is something for everyone, It's worth paying attention to the specials board as they never disappoint. Service outside can sometimes be a little slow if they are busy but unless you are in a rush this is acceptable. It can be a little on the pricer side but the... read more

I am usually reluctant to visit restaurants at busy times such as Mothers Day for the obvious reason that they are likely to be too busy to deliver good food and service. The Swan at Salford is the exception that proves rule. A family group of 7 (yes, we did get a round table), we had an exceptionally good meal.... More

Food was delicious! Lamb cannon was tender and perfectly cooked, the sticky toffee pudding delicious and not overly sweet. The servings were however slightly on the smaller side and quite expensive.

Booked a mothers day meal for four on line and requested one of the round tables as our guests were travelling up from Chichester and we wanted to make the event a bit more special. We were impressed when the restaurant called us to confirm the booking and that we would have one of the round tables However arrived at... More

Gorgeous Sunday lunch. Plates was absolutely full and very tasty. It is a little more expensive than your average Sunday lunch but lovely for a special occasion. Well managed and organised team, great service and really nice atmosphere.

Slow service. I had the Chicken and Ham salad, Chicken was like rubber! All meals extremely over priced. Was really looking forward, took a chance, won't be back.

There's plenty of choice, with around a dozen starters and a dozen main courses. This is the place to come to satisfy a hunger with appetising, interesting food, but it's not 'fine-dining.' Look around, and the diners' faces are wreathed in smiles, and the serving staff also look happy, a sign of good management. Service is prompt, efficient and with... More

We went for Sunday lunch and as usual, found the food and service to be of high quality. That being said, you do pay for this. The portions are generous and our favourites are the sharing boards. The pub is very welcoming and very nicely furnished. Would definitely recommend and will return.

This gastro pub always dishes up a great meal. Plenty to choose from. Always consistent and the service is great. The puddings were great as was the meze tasting board. Be nice if they changed the duck salad to be truer to a Vietnamese style. But, no complaints from me. I will be going back.

Visited this pub/restaurant in January for my Mrs birthday with friends. Table of about 8. The food was of good quality and tasted good. The service was good but felt a little inpersonal in comparison with other restaurants/pubs we have visited. The only negative points i can remember are that both people who ordered the Hare and black pudding sausage... More
