This was the second time in three months for me to visit the Swan with colleagues. What a great place to have a lovely meal! Very attentive service, wonderful tasty food and of course great company made the day. Would recommend veal and other steaks on the menu as well as warm pudding served with chocolate homemade ice cream.

On 3 separate occasions in enjoyed 3 evening meals here, excellent service, imaginative food, good portions and a nice ambiance. On the 3rd evening I took relatives who live locally who have noted it for their future special occasions.

Had a non alcoholic cocktail, £4 and a very small bag of nuts, £2.40! No prices on the drinks menu or the nuts, now I know why! Very sneaky. Didn't order food, so no idea if prices were on that menu. To top it off the parking is a joke, people double parking or parking behind others making it difficult... More

We visit the Swan on a frequent basis - on average once / twice a month. I'm a seasoned foodie and quite hard to please so The Swan is one of the few restaurants within a 5 mile radius of my house which I would rave about. The food is consistently good - well presented, hot and tasty. The menu... More

The title says it all really. The Swan is a lovely old building that oozes character. You can tell it is loved by the staff as they always seem extremely happy to be working there. The smiles are definitely not the faked kind. The food is top notch, with very good combinations and textures that makes the meal quite memorable... More

1, Booked for 6pm with a child only to find no children's menu! 2. Service by the waiter was indifferent - it felt begrudging! Thankfully the waitress was friendly. 3. Nice menu and reasonably priced. 4. Didn't like the decor or ambiance - more canteen than restaurant. 5. Accomplished cooking. Starters and mains presented well, desserts were disappointing Overall we... More

Fantastic location, nice ambience, great food. I have been several times for lunch or dinner. It can get busy and on one occasion had quiet a delay to get seated despite having a booking. However, generally service has been great with staff who know what they are doing and know their food. As a veggie I have always found good... More

the first time I went, a number of years ago, the staff spilled a whole bowl of soup all over my suit and refused to pay for cleaning bill. Did not learn my lesson. I went again recently with my wife and 2 friends. It took ages to be seated, despite a booking and the food was virtually inedible. My... More

This is the fourth time we have eaten here. Twice in the evening and twice for Sunday Lunch. On all visits the staff and food have been excellent. The surroundings are pleasant and the pub had nice outdoor facilities. We keep going.
