Lovely place - quite nice food but slow, slow ,slow...

Menu looked great, staff really helpful and fun but one hour and a quarter to wait for two simple main courses is too long

Having used this pub for the past 12 years with the same owner I was not impressed with the new owners who have taken over. I have just had a meal with friends who were visiting and was very embarrassed at the service. I booked a table for 6pm and we ordered and did not get our meal until 7.15pm,... More

This is my local pub and eating place, well within walking distance which is a bonus. After the long term manager left, for pastures new, the standards did drop slightly. However, things are back to their normal high standard. I took my wife, son and his girlfriend for lunch today and was immediately impressed by the standard of service. We... More

Nice looking pub with indoor and outdoor seating. The outdoor area has a play area for children. It's by the canal which is pleasant. The choice of food is huge with a full menu, lunch menu and specials. The food order is placed at the bar and brought out to the table. Place was fairly busy. The food took a... More

We went to the swan today for a family meal, we arrived at 14:15 and the inside was empty. We ordered some food and when it arrived was asked if we wanted any sauces. I asked for some ketchup and vinegar. The waitress left, after about 10 minutes I asked another waiter if he could get me the sauce and... More

The Swan has had some bad reviews recently but for us it remains well worth a visit. The location is brilliant, the quality of the food very good and the price. especially of the light lunches, remains good value. he sandwiches, in particular, come with chips and salad and are around £6 which compares well with other places visited recently.

We used to love the Swan. We have just got back from a meal tonight having invited friends who are over from Australia. Very embarrassing as it was awful. We were not given menus until after 30 minutes I asked. We ordered and then the waitress came back to tell us what was not available, twice! No roast potatoes, but... More

Arrived to a half empty pub. We were told that it would be 45 mins wait! Food ok but waiting times awful. Waitress brought out 2 meals and 5 mins later another 2! Over priced, terrible service. Used to be amazing but now garbage. AVOID! Don't waste your money in this awful place. Complained to the Manager and fell on... More

This is quite a regular haunt, both for business and for pleasure - this review is a daytime business visit! The lunchtime menu offers lots of choice, for all tastes - and for a "chain" pub does a pretty good steak. Portions are reasonably generous, and meals are well cooked and well presented. A good choice of real-ales is always... More

The Swan has reached rock bottom! We were here yesterday for Fathers Day. Two starters were off as were every dessert on the set menu, we offered a choice of 4 desserts which were obviously the ones no one wanted. We waited around 30 minutes for our drinks and only got them after we spoke to a waitress. Our starters... More
