Friday GNO Dinner

Fantastic meal, service and atmosphere, actually can't fault the experience at all. Food choices are affordable and lots of choice. A lovely pub which gives you the feeling of a top resturant. Well done and thank you.

Booked a table for our wedding anniversary. What a lovely pub / restaurant in a quiet area just outside central Milton Keynes. Food was beautiful one of the best steaks I have ever eaten ( porterhouse) cooked to perfection. I would like to praise the kitchen team as reading other reviews they tend to focus on the great job from... More

This place is one of the worst pub / restaurant I have been to in Milton Keynes. The waitress put four of us on a table designed for two even though a table for four was empty. She told us it was reserved. No one sat there for an hour. When people arrived and sat there my friend asked if... More

My sister recently had her 30th birthday celebrations here on a Saturday late afternoon into evening and I cannot praise the manager highly enough! She decorated the area of the bar for my sister and organised a large birthday cake, all without a cost to my sister. She was friendly throughout the whole booking process & even put in a... More

Table for 8, plenty of room. Looked after brilliantly by staff all evening, never had to wait for a drink and if we needed anything staff were on hand to sort it. Complimentary bread and oil was brought over to tide us over as we waited half hour or so, of which we were informed so absolutely no worries there.... More

The Ye Old Swan is great for when you want traditional British food-like items to shove down your throat. Sober me rates it at 4 stars, but drunk me rates it 4.5 stars. However remove the screening kids they would get 5 stars.

Yesterday we made a last minute booking, Easter Sunday, who would have thought we would get in. Meegan, the Manager, accommodated all 13 of us, including 6 kids and the whole meal worked like clock work. Kath put up with everyone changing their minds half way through ordering, kids high on chocolate eggs and Meegan organised an egg hunt through... More
