With a few drinks,sharing a starter and no desert it came to £50. Around the same period at The White Heart in... read more

Excellent food - lovely outside space by the canal and lovely log fires inside in winter. Food more pricey than some other pubs but better quality

Over the past few years 'The Swan' has been regarded as "the place to go" with lots of talk amongst locals of how special it is. We have been a few times over the years but sadly I do not see what the fuss is about. Every time we have been we have had to wait for a table, often... More

I really don't understand why Spirit haven't resolved the issues at The Swan. The problem here is the lack of consistency.

We need not have worried, we were... More

Went today for the burns night menu, because of a mix up on the website turned up early, they were however willing to serve us the taster menu early. I must say I am so glad they could the four course menu was gorgeous, loved it, wish it was on the menu all the time
