Another lovely evening

We have eaten in several times before. The food was delicious, ambitious and definitely worth repeat visits. The staff were lovely, very professional friendly and just the right amount of attention. We have booked again in April for a birthday celebration of 21 people.

Different staff every time we go?? But this time Jenna & Alex were the best and made up for the kitchens... More

Typical of many pubs in the chain, the setting is the old village inn of Woughton on the Green prior to being swallowed up by Milton Keynes, It is about 10 mins walk from the canal, the pub has been sympathetically extended through the years and has a more intimate feel than many as it is a warren of smaller...

Very lucky to get a table on a Sunday. Had the pub roast lunch. Very disappointing however. The meat was tasteless pork, obviously not freshly carved, but heated up. The gravy, which you can have as much as one wishes, was also tasteless. The veggies on the other hand were great, firm and crunchy but done. The roasted potatoes were... More

We went to Ye Olde Swan for Valentine's night - not our first trip to this brilliant gastro pub - and were completely delighted with the service (which is consistently as good as the food), but also, given the numbers expected, that there was no wait, nothing had run out, and the chef even offered to make a special (which...

We visited this restaurant at lunch time today for the first time. A warm and friendly greeting and we were surprised to get a table quickly being a Sunday lunch time. Drinks order taken as we were seated and we were ready to order when they arrived. The food came and was steaming hot, well presented and well portioned. The... More
