Generally good but a few reservations

The wine glasses were dirty when we sat down at the table one had water in and another some form of green leaf, the prawn cocktails looked uncooked (as the prawns were very pale and we don't think were cooked enough). The beef rib was very tasty but at least 60% fat. Salad that came with the... read more

Went for Sunday lunch. Roast and other meals were really good, and reasonably priced. Service was good with efficient friendly staff.

The Swan is situated in a lovely location, by the canal with ample parking and plenty of indoor and outdoor seating. Each time I visit the Swan I hope it will be a better experience that the last, however I feel I must now throw in the towel and admit defeat. I do not like to be unfair by condemning... More

We arrived slightly earlier than our reservation time as we intended on having a drink with my sister and her son as they were not stopping for something to eat. The manager gave us a tepid greeting asking us to find him later at our reservation time as our table wasn't ready. The overall cleanliness of the bar area was... More

All the staff were cheerful and helpful. Glad we booked the week before, as queue was out the door when we arrived. Nice range of choices for ales, ciders and gins. Everyone in our group was able to find several things on the menu they liked. Good veggie choices. Well presented food, and on proper plates :-)

I attended this pub to celebrate my mother in laws 80th birthday. It took 50 minutes from sitting down to having the order being taken. A further hour for the two starters to arrive. We requested the mains straightaway. They took a further 30 - 40 minutes to arrive. In all from arrival to the coffers arriving to over 3... More

Waitress was friendly and took order quickly. Food took ages, I was so hungry by the time it arrived I couldn't be bothered to ask them for hot peas and cooked through chips! My fish was nice, but overall a disappointing meal, weatherspoons would have been similar for half the price. Pretty naff.

I am glad I didn't read the reviews on here before going as some are quite critical and might have put me off from meeting a client at The Swan for lunch this week where we actually had an excellent lunch with very good service. First the service, really good welcome from the chap behind the bar who was happy... More
