Our waitress Jackie was very bubbly and friendly. We eat out very regularly and The Swan offers a varied menu, from simple economic pub grub to something a little more interesting and exotic. Quick efficient service, homely surroundings and a very friendly atmosphere.

Recently went to the Ye Old Swan for a birthday meal and had a one of the nicest steaks I've ever eaten. Top marks to the chef. Our waitress Cathy was great, she couldn't have done more to make our evening perfect, thank you.

First visited a few weeks ago and was pleased to see they have a quite extensive gluten free menu. The GF fish and chips are amazing, I even had GF crumble for dessert! Been a few times now - yesterday I had a lovely roast beef dinner with GF yorkshire puddings and gravy! Every time i've been there the same... More

This was our second visit to Ye Olde Swan and it certainly won't be our last. The service was excellent - efficient and friendly - and the food was very good value. Best bits were the cherry tomato soup, sea bass and scallops on pea & chive risotto, rump steak, millionaire's cheesecake and Eton mess. Less good was the Sunday... More

Great Manager. Great team. Great Gastro Pub. I am a regular and it is my favourite pub in Milton Keynes. Make sure Cathy serves you if you can. They are all good but she is a diamond :D In the words of Brucie "she's my favourite " ;-)

Our first visit to Ye Olde Swan and hopefully not our last. The waiting staff were excellent; energetic, helpful, very welcoming. I hope the pub knows what great talent they have in their staff. The food, gutsy pub food, was excellent quality, well cooked. I had slow roast pork belly which I would heartily recommend. Food intolerances, no problem, they... More

The service is always very good here and the food is not bad. Tasty pulled pork sandwich. I wouldn't have expected less and would have been surprised for anything more than what I was served. Certainly not the best pub food around Milton Keynes but by far not the worst. It is cheap, decent pub grub. Can't say fairer than... More
