The Lunch Event was Saved by the Manager.

We have been supporters of the Swan for years and even of late through the bad times we have always remained loyal. We have of late experienced food and service not up to standard, what standard the one we have been used to. Today a booked table for four at lunch, pleasant greeting and seating with... read more

Started off well and got our drinks served quickly but went down hill from there. At 7:30pm when we tried to order our food they had ran out of a number of things on the menu. We then waited an hour for our food to arrive. One person was disappointed with their meal which was taken off the bill and... More

We had a friend up from Sussex who always takes us to lovely country pubs, so we thought the Swan would be somewhere equally as nice. There seems to be a new policy of waiting at the door to be seated, after waiting at this point for 10 minutes with no one attending to us, we went and sat at... More

We booked online for 8.45pm (a choice between that and 6pm) on a Wednesday night - sounds promising that they are so busy but alas service was mediocre - went to order to find three dishes we wanted were sold out, but no one had told us. There was a cat in the pub and whilst I have nothing against... More

I get the sense that I must be making poor choices in recent weeks as this is my third negative review in as many weeks. The service was slow, we waited 20 minutes before our drinks order was taken and then another 10 minutes for them to turn up. We decided to order straight away thinking, correctly as it turned...

The swan is my local and when I first moved to the area 2 years ago it was a good reliable pub to drink and get dinner. Unfortunately it has really gone downhill. I keep going back as its the only pub walking distance for me but every time I leave extremely disappointed. The food is overpriced, small portions and... More

Went here with my wife and our friends for a Valentines dinner. The food was good and the staff very friendly. The pub is located in a very unlikely setting in a housing development. However it has all the charm of an English pub when you step inside. We would consider returning here.
