We meet for lunch and usally go for the set price two course meal. I... More

we had lunch at the swan and it was very good value. We had 2 main meals for £9.99. We both had ham egg peas and chips. It was very well cooked but we could have done with a few more chips. The service was excellent. We had syrup sponge and custard which was very good too. The menu is... More

We are regulars to the Swan due to the excellent value for money, lovely meals with changing menus, and the new team, Jaymie, Cath and staff, are always very welcoming. We wish them the very best of luck!

Visited here several times over the years, and our experience is one of hit and miss. Had occasional good meals, but on the whole it's average. Food by Greene King blueprint, so nothing out of the ordinary, in terms of cuisine, or should I say technique as everything, I guess, is pre-packaged and not "home made". For example on one... More

We called in to have lunch and were hit by the smell of drains which was in most of the pub. This smell has been ongoing for several months. Come on Green King sort the problem out. We won't be back until its sorted as it was so strong

Three of us ordered gammon with eggs, only to be told they only had enough eggs for one!. The other two opted for pineapple with the gammon and were served... More
