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.

Went to this pub for the first time in years to meet up with a friend. The barman was the most miserable man I have ever seen behind a bar. It was like he was doing us a favour by serving us! We sat down and starting chatting, then a group of 4 guys came and sat near us, all... More

Don't know what has happened to the Swan. Have used regularly as an eatery in the past. Wanting to support a local pub. Spent just under two hours waiting on what can only be described as appalling food. Very disappointed and doubt very much I will return to be subjected to it again

Having had a few bad experiences here over the years, had been avoiding the place until recently. In the past, I had found it to be overpriced, under staffed and poorly run. Add to this the shocking waits and quality of food, it had become a bit of a running joke between my circle of friends. Something seems to have... More

A so so meal which to be honest, I'm not sure why we had as the smell coming from the toilets was awful but we were in a rush so stayed. A long wait for food but to be fair, we were warned of this. Potatoes dry, very small serving of steak and a serving of pulled pork returned for... More

Brought my two daughters here for lunch ordered pulled pork on a sourdough roll suppose if should have researched first but wasn't sure what Sourdough was so wasn't sure what to expect however when it arrived I was a bit dubious but as it was definately pork I carried on eating it by the point I realised it wasn't on...
