If you're lucky

Part of a chain, but good food nonetheless. Unfortunately on a couple of recent visits we settled in for the good homely food, only to be told that the Kitchen was running about 1 hour behind.

The day I arrived in Farnborough I went to the Swan as it was just across the road it seemed a very lively place but within days I was informed that it was about to close down for refurbishment. Three months later it was still closed

The standard goes up and down each time we visit. I think it depends on the chief on duty. Mostly it is good so we keep going. We use this Inn as a backup for entertaining visitors at short notice. Drinks selection is excellent and service is usually very good. Lunchtimes can be very busy.

Nice food, nice atmosphere. Some unexpected dishes that you could expect in a fine fining place, but really creative kitchen.

We attended here for a leaving lunch of a colleague and as it was the summer we sat in the garden area. There were a lot of us but the food came out promptly and was very enjoyable. The staff were polite and efficient. They also have live music on a Friday evening so good to just have a drink... More

Good example of a Chef & Brewer gastro pub, nice location. Chain food, but normally nicely cooked and we'll presented with friendly staff and reasonable prices. Can get a little crowded, but that's the price you pay for it being popular.

The restaurant was under renovation; so I just had crisps along with a cold drink. The owner was also present there and he was very warm and chatty; had good discussions with him on Asia ( he was from Malaysia). I have heard that food is good there too (hard luck for me)

I haven't eaten here before but went for a drink with a friend Saturday night. Arrived just after 8pm and we were both asked for ID by two bouncers ( we're in our 30s!) so I only assumed they ask for ID because they get trouble there. Wasn't wrong!! Started off ok, groups of friends and couples all ages but... More
