Have been to the Swan three or four times in the last week having heard they are under new Management. I must say the the ambiance was great with a 'buzz' about the place that has been missing of late. We had a really nice meal, the staff were attentive, and as a Real Ale enthusiast the selection on offer... More

1 thing only: all food from the souses to the Sunday roast, from desert true starters and any main course...prepared in warehouse and delivered for reheating or fried .So that's it. Service or any other will take long time after all above ;-)

We went as a group from work. Booked a table well in advance and sent our food orders in. Service terrible from the start, couldn't even get the drinks order right and were bringing out the drinks one or two at a time - in total it took over 20 minutes for everyone (14 in total) to get a drink...

Went with my girlfriend to get a bite to eat and to have a drink in the last bit of sun on a Monday. The service at first was good and polite. Ordered a 3 course meal for 2 people and drinks. Before we noticed, we had finished our drinks and still didn't have any food. A LONG story short,... More

We went to the Swan today with a party of 12. We booked well in advance and phoned on the morning of the booking to double check on the numbers. On arrival we were told they had not expected that many of us and we had to squeeze round a smaller table. In the end they moved us, it was... More

We've used this pub chain restaurant many times before and found it good. Other members of the family had a bad experience on Father's Day and we checked before we booked that they had a new chef. The assured us that they had. The problem when we visited was the waiting time for our party of ten. Over half an... More

This was my pub as a youngster. I started going out with my wife some 34 years ago here way before it became a gastro pub. To celebrate our 31st anniversary we turned up to chance it as the web site said call as we are busy. Having rang and waited to make a resevation and no one answered, we... More
