Excellent service and very accommodating

I booked The Swan for my birthday. I phoned a few times to warn about my dietary requirements, but there was no answer. However, when I finally did get through the lady I spoke to was so helpful and spoke to the chef for me. When I arrived at the restaurant I was apprehensive, since so many... read more

Having had a disaster 2 years ago, thought we would give it another visit in the hope things had improved. This time went there 7pm on a Monday. Not very busy but yet again all the starters we wanted had ran out. My son ordered garlic bread instead and this was forgotten. The main course I wanted was also not... More

Really enjoyed the beef rib, just fell off the bone. Looking forward to my next visit. Service was excellent, the girl was very patient with us and the kids were made very welcome.

Starter-mushrooms: half a cold burger bun with some mushrooms and cheese, barely introduced to a grill. Cheese was melted but mushrooms that had fallen off the bun were cold. Main-steak: not too bad but steak knife needed for the tomato. Pud-sticky toffee roulade: not sure whether this was supposed to be hot or cold Took 2 1/2 hours of painful... More

Customer for ten years, very disappointed last six months, but much improved Saturday! Better bar staff required, some very slow service! Food much improved!

Went for my 4th visit to this pub. Sadly this was my 4th negative experience here. On this particular occasion we were just having a snack so I ordered cheese & biscuits. There were 4 of us eating - just a platter and fish pie and some simple cheese and biscuits. I had to wait quite a while so everyone... More

The food and service in this pub has declined so dramatically I was shocked! The gammon steak was actually a tiny bacon chop and the Wagyu burger was overpriced, overcooked, looked terrible and tasted worse. We will never return.

When for a late lunch and had a leisurely afternoon with no pressure to order another course or leave! Only one member of our party wasn't happy with his fish pie, probably not as good as Mum makes, but on the whole all very pleasant. Staff very pleasant and happy to be of assistance.

Good food, great staff, reasonable prices, and a fantastic location especially in the summer. It is now my local having moved to the area so here's to many more enjoyable evenings in The Swan
