Stopped in for a pint

We only stopped in for a pint of beer and cider. The bartender was fantastic and very nice. The menu looks rugged and we plan to come back for dinner one night. Nice traditional pub.

Excellent Menu. Vast choice including traditional roasts. I had the slow cooked roast lamb which fell apart and was to die for. Very friendly welcome and efficient and friendly waitresses. Definitely go again.

Lunch time the staff warned us there would be a 45 minute wait for food. The beer was good no gripes there. The food was brought to us earlier than the predicted wait however. The burger i had was ok but had an after taste, sadly the chips were so over cooked they were rock hard. My friend had fish... More

I've been frequenting Ye Olde Swan for over a decade. The staff are on the whole brilliant. Typically the waiting staff receive the well deserved praise, however Richard the bar manager is exceptional. The previous reviewers comment on this young man could not be further from the truth and should be ignored.

I found this pub by accident and decided to have a few pints as the pub and atmosphere was nice and the staff were friendly. I decide to eat and that's was my downfall. The menu looked lovely, so I ordered a starter which was overcooked and a ribeye steak rare, which was rare on one half and well done... More

I must say I wasn't expecting great things when I saw it was part of a chain (Chef & Brewer), but I was very pleasently suprised. Four of us dined for Sunday lunch we arrived at 12.00 so didn't need to book but any later and we would have struggled. Pub is in a quiet old part of MK with... More
