A large group of us called in on a walk. They had reserved a space for the 15 eating and there was a good welcome too for those just having a drink. Service was efficient and food good.

We went there as a family just before Christmas. We had a wonderful meal, served quickly and in a helpful manner despite the fact that they were very busy. We will go back time and again

Went with friends for Sunday lunch yesterday. Very good experience. Nice, uncomplicated menu and it was a lovely surprise to find out that they brew their own ales on the promises. My only slight niggle was the delicious soup was lukewarm at best. I bet this place is even better on a lovely summer's day!

This pub has caused inconvenience to me and family by not opening at published times. There was no apology when I telephoned to speak to someone. Here’s what happened. I arranged to meet with some family for a drink a few Sundays ago. I checked the website which says the pub is open until 9pm on a Sunday. We were... More

I have been to The Swan on the Green several times over the years and it has always served delicious meals, not just on a Sunday but throughout the week. When family members visit from abroad it's a wonderfully traditional Kent pub to take them to for a taste of real English cooking. Game usually features somewhere on the menu... More

Really lovely Kent pub. Had amazing mixed seafood starter followed by mince steak pie.. All very delicious. Really nice young lad served us, think may have been his first night.. Lovely guy with nice personality. If being picky would suggest a dimmer switch on overhead lights at back end of restaurant... Too bright .. Shines in the eyes and ruins... More

My second visit to the Swan on the Green took place recently. I have to say the service which was bad, is now really bad which is such a shame as the food is really decent. My last review was called “Good but not Great”. This one should be called “Bad but also Terrible”. Service was appalling. We hadn’t booked,... More

This is a delightful pub. The staff were friendly and looked after our friends little dog with water etc. We had the pulled pork baguette and it was superb. Really happy to recommend this pub. My husband loved the Golden Swan beer too.
