Lovely country pub

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... read 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

This pub is a little gem. It has a micro brewery and the beer is excellent!. Pub is opposite the village green and a beautiful stop on a summer's day - but also very cosy in winter. Food is locally sourced, well cooked and presented. Staff are friendly and approachable.

I visited the restaurant with my family we had a superb meal and the service was very good, my complaint was that it was cold in the bar area where we sat, we all ate our food with our coats on. What I cant understand is the beautiful open fire was not lit, which would have created warmth and atmosphere.... More

I love coming here at lunchtime whether it's to have a cool drink on a hot summer day on the green or sampling their great dishes for lunch. As its small you may have to book as it gets busy very quickly.

We ate here a few weeks ago on the spur of the moment and called ahead and fortunately they had a table available. When we arrived the pub was pretty full and we were shown to a table in the restaurant section of the pub. We had 3 courses and I have to say that all the food was excellent... More

Fantastic location and great food, but disappointed in other areas. As other people have mentioned, the toilets are terrible. My wife said the ladies was freezing, whilst the gents needs overhaul. Inside the pub is nice enough but we actually kept our coats on for quite a while; as it was chilly and the fire was lit, but nearly out.... More
