A good experience and good food even tho a multi chain restaurant. Tasty food, super veges, lovely surroundings, friendly and helpful staff, clean and well cared for. A bit rushed because it was the run up to Christmas week but the food was well cooked nicely served and tasty. Basically, PDG for the price.

Myself and a group of school mates began frequenting this place when we were 18. We are now in our early 30's and we still return as a group at least 3 or 4 times a year. My most recent visit there was in November for my brothers (Dan) birthday. There were 8 of us. We were seated immediately at... More

Haven't been here in ages but went on Saturday night - and what a transformation! Great look, less hideous corporate colours etc and a new fresh look. More restauranty than before but we thought it was great. Lovely food and decent service. We won't leave it so long next time.

We were a party of six in on a Sunday lunchtime. We all opted for the two course (main and pud) Xmas menu (which we had pre-booked). The waitress was friendly and there was a good selection of beer, including a seasonal ale. I had a slow roast rib of beef in a rich gravy, which was superb and everyone... More

I've been going to this pub for probably 20 years, less so in recent times as I have a daughter but nevertheless it's still my much loved local. As a treat we decided to visit as a family. Firstly, we waited for ages to be seated, I then asked a member of staff if we could seat ourselves he said... More

The swan was a great place to go for a spot of lunch or dinner, not any more. The service and food quality has gone down hill. I have been twice recently and on both occasions food and drink were forgotten. Consistent chasing was required to get the things we ordered.

Monday evening, not particularly busy, 40min wait for cold food, should have been hot, no cutlery and fourth order coming out as we were finishing. Such a shame that this pub that I've been going to for forty seven years is turning into a basket case.

Firstly, my partner made a reservation at 6pm, which the Swan charged her £3. Since when did a Hampshire pub/restaurant begin to think it was located in Sloane Square? On our arrival at 1745hours we were met by a rude member of staff who told us our table was not ready. Therefore we had a round at the bar to... More
