Waited at least 5 minutes to even be acknowledged when waiting for booked table. Service that followed was slow, however friendly. Salad on both courses looked old and therefore went uneaten and brought to servers attention, pulled pork was in parts cold, the duck was not cooked as requested and the jacket potato was overcooked and chewy. At end of... More

Four of us met for lunch on Sunday. We had a variety of starters/main courses and desserts from the menu; everyone thought the food was very good. The restaurant had a great atmosphere and, despite it being busy the service was really excellent. Prices were reasonable. I will certainly go there again.

Second time I've been here. First time was just a drink outside, which didn't really warrant a review. Sunday lunchtime - 4 guests. Three roast dinners all went down very well, high marks apparently. One mixed grill was pretty poor. Portion size was terrible really for £15, although quality wasn't too bad. Service was friendly and nice, pub looked very... More

Went to this restaurant for the first time on Saturday night, couldn't find the entrance to start with as no signage to the front door. Smell of new paint upon entering and it seemed the restaurant had received a make over - promising. Was quite busy and we had a 10 minute wait till seated, the hostess kept us posted... More

Saturday was the reopening of this pub / restaurant after a refurb. Looks bright and fresh, and we ate in the gardens. Staff welcoming and friendly and service great. My partner had the veg burger, and upgraded to triple cooked chips, you won't be dissapointed. I had the butchers platter as a main meal. A tasty meal and more than... More

The Old Swan is a lovely old pub with wooden beams in the ceiling. It has been recently renovated very nicely but sadly it still serves from exactly the same menu which has been in place for a number of years. Nice old pubs should stick with traditional, hearty pub food which is straight forward to prepare and which is... More

Very nice atmosphere in this quiet old pub. The food and wine list are extensive, and some of the menu (slow-cook lamb) is very good. However, the quality across the menu varies quite a lot, and some of the dishes are suspiciously quickly delivered - and to be honest, have been quiet a let-down.
