Rewarding a Jolly Yomp

This is a distinctive pub which brews its own beer and serves excellent food at sensible prices (not too expensive to frighten the horses but not so cheap as to suggest the Ingredients are collected from wate bins.) Lovely staff and a wonderfully English country setting - old church, cricket green... read more

Firstly and most importantly the food was very good, from the roasts (beef/pink) the lamb rump and the boar burger everything was cooked perfectly and tasted fantastic. Based on the food alone we will definitely be coming back, we have been trying to find a nice village pub with good food for a while. This pub is still a 10... More

The setting of the Swan on the Green couldn't be better and it's certainly a popular pub amongst locals. The menu is standard pub fare, but at least there's a vegetarian option and a few fish dishes. My partner enjoyed his boar burger rather more than I enjoyed my nicoise salad with lime and chilli marinated swordfish, which was meagre... More

Another lovely lunch here on a perfect sunny afternoon after a walk through the countryside with friends. Watched them playing cricket on the green outside while husband sipped a beer from the micro brewery and we ate ciabattas at£6.90, tasty and beautifully presented. English country life at its best!

We have been here quite a few times, mostly at lunch time, and always had really good food in an unpretentious setting but opposite the village green.......you would have to go a long way to find such a hidden gem. We had the seafood platter to share....this is something we usually go for as it is delicious....served with crusty bread... More

went with hubby and late teen kids... Lovely setting and a good mixed menu, albeit a tad limited but that's because the food is freshly cooked..Lads liked the beers but the flatness of the ales tempered their enjoyment of them... Service was excellent. And the food was really lovely... As someone else has posted before ... It's rather cold so... More

Came here today with my family and could not fault it. The food is delicious and very nice atmosphere. The only tiny negative is that there doesn't appear to be a children's menu but my 6 yr old chose the seafood platter which might have been a bit grown up for him - anyway we brought it home in a...

Me and my girlfriend stayed around Roughway Lane for a few nights glamping and the Swan came hugely recommended. Having got totally lost walking there we were initially dismayed to see it fully booked for Mother's Day. However the manageress was incredibly helpful and hospitable managing to squeeze us in too. Service was quick, the micro-brewed ales/beers fantastic and food... More

A small pub restaurant on the village green, relaxed atmosphere and lovely food. Advisable to book as quite small. I had liver and bacon on creamy mashed potato , friends had perfectly cooked steak and mushrooms and the pan fried hake with lobster and crayfish sauce. All delicious, priced from£13.50 to 16.95 for the steak. Local delicacies including Offham boar... More
