The positives of this place is that it has a great cocktail menu and is furnished really nicely inside. The negatives is the food, I highly suspect that a microwave does all the work here. On my most recent visit I had a sharing platter with one of my friends, very disappointing, bland small and overpriced. I have eaten from... More

We visited on spec with our daughter who needed to get back to work. Excellent service with smiles all round, and we all enjoyed our different choices from the extensive menu. Definitely 5*.

We went into the swan as a spare of the moment dinner choice. The interior is nice and clean, big wooden tables and candles etc. Good gastro pub menu and the food was of a good standard, the staff could have done with a smile but there seemed to be only one person working the whole area do we can...

My partner and I eat here once a year and our general view is that the experience is pleasant if unspectacular. Positives ; attentive service, separate dining area, timely arrival of food Disappointments ; some main courses not available even though it was 8pm on a Monday so low demand, desert menu was unimaginative, charged extra for additional scoop of...

Fantastic SOUNDING menu but execution was poor. Had the pork belly which sounded great and although the flavours were great the plate was cold, the pork dry and chewy & scallops somehow well cooked but crusty. Fish & chips oily. Chips were nice but realistically it's hard to stuff that up. Nice pub, good beer but if you're charging £18... More

Quality lively gastropub for all age groups in picturesque Old Amersham. The bar area is nice for drinks and snacks - good for larger or smaller groups and you can order a range of tasty sharing snacks. Nice outside area, too. However, one can also eat in the foodie area. Menu is diverse and caters for pesces and veggies (although... More

Cant believe how long it took to get dinner served, so long in fact we had to abandone thoughts of a nice leisurely dessert. We asked for the menus at a downstairs table but were eating upstairs. Firmly believe if we hadn't made our own way upstairs we would still be waiting at the downstairs table. Their excuse was they... More
