Lovely old pub with lots of split level floors, the old ambience has been retained with low ceilings and exposed beams. We were promptly showed to our table when we arrived and the waitress Katie waited until we were all seated be forcing taking our drinks orders which then arrived quickly. She gave us time to go through the menu... More

Had the lovely Beef rib roast on Sunday and it was fantastic, the meat just fell off and melted in your mouth and was lovely and moist, Yorkshire pud was huge but could have done with a few more veggies to even out the meat. The Crème brule was lovely as well. All in all a great meal and friendly... More

Visited this Chef and Brewer yesterday, staff attentive, welcoming as was the environment. Boutique style furniture with plenty of mirrors ! The meal was hot and tasty as I'm coming to expect from this chain and was not disappointed at this one. Would recommend for a lovely lunch. Beautiful gardens too.

First visit the staff were very efficient. My steak was inedible (fat and gristle mostly) no trouble it was promptly changed. The replacement was worse. My parties sirloins were fine my porterhouse was not. They reduced my whole bill by a third. The staff handled a difficult situation well so we returned for our anniversary meal which was a Sunday.... More

I have eaten at Ye Olde Swan several times before. Today I returned as a party of 9, including 5 coeliacs and a wheelchair user. The staff are always friendly and accommodating. There is a good selection of 'non gluten containing' food and the staff are clued up on cross contamination (told without asking that the chips are cooked in... More

We went for a family meal with our five year old daughter from the moment we stepped in the decor and atmosphere stood out the staff greeting was lovely. A great choice of food I went for the duo of chicken which was a chicken breast in a coating and a mini chicken pie with mash veg and a lovely... More
