We visit Ye Olde Swan on a visit to the The National Museum of Computing in Bletchley Park. The pub was very busy, but our food turned up in no time at all. It was very tasty and a really good portion. The staff were very friendly and we felt quite at home. I recommend it highly.

I love this place, it has good atmosphere, nice food. We have been there twice and both times we waited close to 45 minutes for a set of burgers, etc. (4-5 meals), mostly from the featured menu (one would expect faster preparation). As we have a small child, this is a bit too long. Staff is nice, place is nice,... More

This is the 2nd chef and brewer we have visited recently and this is the better of the two (other one was in Carlton near Luton). This is a cosy place that sells hearty food with good portions. At both pubs I noticed the mains are always quite slow coming out. This is my only grumble with this chain, that... More

You'd think after a couple of hundred years that they would be able to keep a decent pint of real ale, or have some cellaring skill but no, sadly not. I tried a half of Taylors Landlord (a most excellent brew- I urge you to visit the Top Brink at Lumbutts-Todmorden) and it was just on the turn. Cloudy and... More

I think it's important to state at the outset that we visited this restaurant following an awful experience and subsequent complaint to another Chef and Brewer in Hertfordshire. The company had given us some vouchers as a gesture of goodwill and in order to restore our faith in the organisation. So it was with some trepidation that we entered Ye... More

We visit Ye Olde Swan quite regularly and are never disappointed. Today's meal was particularly good. My husband opted for the Game Pie, a special for the Game Festival, and I had Honey and Lemon Chicken with rice. Our waitress was Elisa who welcomed us like old friends. She is always very welcoming and attentive. She always remembers that my... More

booked for 20 people, the staff were very helpful from the start of the booking, nothing was to much trouble. I dropped off the decorations the week before the meal and they set the tables up for us. It looked wonderful. They were outstanding on the night, looked after each and everyone of us and made my Nanna feel very... More

I have been eating here since arriving in Milton Keynes back in 1985! It has gone through numerous changes obviously and right now it is as good as anywhere in Milton Keynes. You cannot beat the combination of stunning building, great location, open fires and high quality grub at very reasonable prices. BUT - the sign above the door is... More
