As pubs go, the Swan Inn was reasonably good and very conveniently located for Farnborough Airshow. During the show, they had an "airshow menu", which was likely a smaller selection from their usual menu. I had quite good bass one evening and a steak and Stilton pie another evening, which was good, but I couldn't detect a bit of Stilton... More

My fiancé and I were visiting the area and popped in to the Swan Inn for dinner because it was close to where we were staying. I ordered the superfood salad which was good. The atmosphere was okay.. when placing our order the young lady who took our order seemed as though we were a bother. We rate this experience... More

Decided to give to the swan a go as we wanted to sit at the end of the runway to see the final air show arrivals with a beer. Decided to eat lunch as well, while not especially cheap the food was good and quick. Nice surroundings as well.

We ate here for the second time today and probably won't be back. The food is rather nice, certainly above average, and the pub itself is quite nice too. The service though is dreadful. Despite the place not being very busy, after being seated we still hadn't received menus after 15 minutes! We ended up going to the bar and... More

We have visited previously and the food was good, this time it was better and the presentation has definately improved. Obviously a professional chef is now in situ. Service was friendly despite the staff being very busy. I would advise that you go along for dinner early as we did if you want to chat over the meal as once... More

What a great place and location, especially if you like air planes! Right at the end of the runway. But, on a Sunday night they stop serving food at 6pm, which upset so many people who were asking for food and the guy serving was not very helpful!

Following a great wedding we went to the Swan Inn for champagne and the wedding lunch. The champagne was on ice when we arrived and the service throughout the whole time was totally excellent. We had selected our starters, mains and puddings before the great day and these all arrived correctly, the food was excellent, very fresh and very hot.... More

I went to the Swan on Saturday lunch time with a group of friends. I thought the service was very polite and helpful, although the food was a bit slow in coming and the pub wasn't busy. The food was nice but not special. This is a handy place to drop into if you are visiting the FAST museum which... More
