We went as a family of four for a quick Sunday evening dinner. We found a table and were deciding drinks when a waitress approached cleared the table and took our drinks orders. We were expecting to go to the bar ourselves. My husband and l ordered roast meals, good value at two for £9.99, unfortunately i forgot to mention... More

3 of us went here today for lunch, confusing array of menus as 4 on the table including golden menu and today's specials menu. All opted for fish and chips only to be told fish fryer out of action so fish off the menu, obviously no frying pans in the kitchen. Waitress had taken our drinks order, brought the drinks... More

We have had many meals at this pub over the years. It seems to have changed hands as now table service and change of menu, as well as some new staff. We opted for the 2 for 9.99 meals which were OK - we have had better meals at this pub in past visits. Tables were clean but sticky! Not... More

Three girls of a certain age went into this pub to have lunch. We asked the waitress if the 'two for £9.99' deal would apply to three meals and she confirmed it did (we had had this deal another time when five of us went). On paying at the bar we were told that was not the case and we... More

We called into the pub on our way to Kathy Brown’s garden in Stevington. The fabric of the pub needs a bit of love and attention……broken light shades, damp patches under the window with plaster falling off the walls and no curtains at the windows. However, there were some positives….friendly and attentive staff, well-kept beer and very good quality food.... More

We last visited The Swan 8 yrs ago and the food was very good. We returned today and we were massively disappointed. It's still a nice looking pub and the beer was good but the food has plummeted in standard. It was all frozen and either microwaved or deep fried. Great for beer but avoid the food, there are far...

We regard this as our local although it is in the next village. Good atmosphere with friendly staff. We eat there at lunchtimes and evenings and food is always good. They have various offers on the menus i.e. golden years which is brilliant value for a two or three course meal for us oldies before 6 p.m. (not tiny portions... More

Visiting friends in Bromham and had Sunday dinner in The Swan. Nice pleasant atmosphere with good service. Food was good and great value. Recommend booking a table as it gets busy around 5.00pm onwards.
