Not what it was

We visited here early evening for a meal on the way back from Milton Keynes. The person serving us was very pleasant but his dress was something else. The dishes we ordered were edible but appeared to be microwave reheated which lost flavour. The sweet menu had most things missing so our choice was... read more

We booked a table for 7pm and when we arrived there were a lot of 'walk ins' too. The fact that we had booked and they hadn't didn't matter as other tables were dealt with a lot quicker than we were. When the food arrived there was only enough filling for one of my fajita's although they expected me to... More

We ate there last week. Second time we have eaten there, and both times have been very good. The pub was busy and so the kitchen was too. They were still very accommodating when most of our party ordered badly - the team were very helpful, and handled the whole situation very calmly & efficiently. We ordered several portions of...

We recently popped in here for something to eat. Staff were nice but a bit over friendly for my liking and not very clued up on their actual job. We ordered 4 meals, asked for some fresh chilli to be put on one to which the waitress replied 'Fresh Chilli? There isn't anything fresh in our kitchen!" Hmm. The food... More

The Swan is in a great location and it's a beautiful building.... I would say this place has so much potential but it's not quite hitting the mark. The staff when I went have always seemed really, really nice... the food has always been better than average, and it's got a nice relaxed atmosphere with reasonable prices... I do think... More

Having been for a couple of months after a torrid experience and with low expectations we had a lovely evening here which was a pleasant surprise. Food was good and the staff were ever so friendly and helpful. A complete contrast to our last visit. Only complaint would be the rather loud group of young men outside. Sadly we hear... More

We made our choices from the 'Two for Ten Pounds' menu and went to the bar to pay. Lasagna was not available - we both settled for All Day Breakfast with Soup and Gougons for starters (extra £2.50 each). Drinks were tea and coffee. Tea was served with a teabag in a teapot which needed a good clean and was... More

After waiting over an hour to be served one of our party has stomach cramps and diarrhea. Safe to say we won't be visiting again.
