Meal with friends

We went to Ye Olde Swan on Fathers Day for a meal with a group of friends. It was obviously very busy and they had run out of one or two starter / desert options but overall the service was very friendly and my main course was tasty. I also tried my friend's desert and that was delicious!

Visited Ye Olde Swan with friends last week and had a truly enjoyable evening. Our waitress, Lisa, was knowledgeable and professional and couldn't have done more for us. Great menu selection to suit all tastes - the sharing starter (Butcher's Block) was delicious, as were the main course dishes, all beautifully presented, served with a smile and enjoyed by all....

We arrived at tea time , got a table straight away and were amazed to find the Sunday Roast still on the menu. We all had different meat roasts including the vegetarian one and all very excellent for portion size and content. We all finished off with different puddings which were equally as good. The service was also first class.... More

My partner and I went here last night. We was told about a delay on food which was fine as we could see they were very very busy due to the lively hot day. The waitress was very polite and served us well. The stakes were cooked exactly as we asked very enjoyable. I also left my phone behind which... More

Unfortunately not the best experience we've had at Ye Older Swan. Sadly the service and food had slipped. It was our wedding anniversary combined with a farewell meal with our son who us now on his travels.

Today we visited Ye Olde Swan at Woughton-on-the-Green for a quiet afternoon catch up with food. This is my first visit for food for a long time and to say it was a success undermines our afternoon. Carmel, out hostess, was very welcoming and amenable with a great knowledge of the new summer menu. She served our fizz with practiced... More

This was our third visit in the last three months and although it was funded by Tesco vouchers, we wouldn't have come back unless we received both the service and quality of food that met our expectations. The waitress (Mel) was exceptional in her enthusiasm and efficiency and definitely knew the special menu of offer. The whole atmosphere in the... More

Woughton on the Green is a beautiful village hidden away in the sprawl of Milton Keynes. A great place and Ye Olde Swan makes it even better. I used to frequent this pub in the late 70's and early 80's. It was great then - we used to meet for business lunches and it was a great place to go... More

We were a party of four there for a birthday celebration. Although the menu isn't awe inspiring (good family home cooking), the food is very good, done simply but well. The crumble was the best I've tasted in a very long time with fab custard sauce - having been somewhere else this week where the custard sauce was grey water,... More
