We were enjoying a lovely meal when we mentioned to the waitress that it was our wedding anniversary. The pudding arrived having been altered to reflect the celebration. It really rounded off a great evening. We will certainly return.

I love the Swan. One of the few 'foodie' pubs around that changes the menu fairly regularly and ensures the flavours of the food along with the freshness. The restaurant is always spotless, the staff are super friendly and helpful. We really enjoy coming here. Also, there is a great beer garden for the summer days!

We've met friends here a couple of Sundays in the last few months and both times the food has been good and the service attentive and friendly. Minor quibble last time, one of the main dishes wasn't very warm, but otherwise it's been a nice, relaxed way to end the week.

We always meet friends here who live in Derby. We live in Essex so the Swan is about half way. Because we only meet now and again we obviously like to chat for a fair while. The Swan meets our need perfectly, even though the restaurant is always busy we are never hurried along or rushed. The food is excellent... More

What a lovely place to eat. The staff are so attentive and on the ball, no waiting for ages for food or drinks. Such good value for money for the food. You get what you pay for. Every course delicious. Can't fault it.
