My husband and I visited here after going to Bletchley Park. We had a great Sunday lunch with very friendly efficient service. We both chose roast beef which was well cooked and came with a good selection of vegetables. I also had a crumble. All good and would definitely visit again if in the area.

There were 18 of us in a large room off the main pub for lunch. The little ones could run around and we all had a great lunch. Good friendly service . Nobody pushing us out. Food was good.

Excellent food, great environment. Staff are one of the best features. Never had a bad meal, not 5 stars as it can get a bit busy, It is popular and for good reason.

I am more than happy to pay a premium in an restaurant for premium food or service, but this place has neither so resent paying so much. The first time I went to the Swan, the food was quite novel, but little has moved on, except the prices, which are expensive for outside London. The service was also very sloppy.

I have been here before as it is one of my favourite local eating places. Thursday is fish night, a brilliant time to go out for supper. I had the Hake which was beautifully cooked with a hash brown followed by some cheese is a perfect supper after a hard day at work.

Modern decor, with good quality food, which works well with our family (including two young children).

Met my parents here as a location about halfway between us. They arrived early and enjoyed coffee with their dog in the bar area. The restaurant was busy and the tables felt pretty close together, but the volume of happy chatter in the room was absolutely fine with lots of soft furnishings to absorb the sound, so we were able...

Stopped here for a late Sunday pub lunch and we weren't disappointed. Very good value for the quality of food offered; my Sunday roast was lovely but I couldn't finish it!

I was really disappointed with our meal last night, I dont know if the chef has changed or what but what is normally delicious inventive food ( which keeps us coming back time after time as a default) was regular pub food which frankly lacked effort. The service staff were v busy but were doing their very best which I... More
