staff is friendly and fast good choice of real ale, food is very good, the menu also changes so you can find something new quite often. And the burger is a must.

Ate there several times. First time, food was so salty and greasy we complained and got a voucher to return. Second time it was better, but still only average, and it's fairly pricey, so I don't think we'd go back.

Turned up at half past 8 in the evening on a weekday night expecting to order a meal to be told 'we're not doing food tonight as we've been busy today'. Firstly, what pub stops serving food because they are too busy? Secondly, an advert on your website to say sometimes you may decide to do this would be helpful... More

Farnborough is a relative desert as far as dining goes, and the Swan is one of the better places to eat. I went Friday evening for a meal and a few beers, and the belly pork had gone by 7pm - not sure why as this should have been a staple on the menu. However, there was a really good... More

The food here was of a good quality although did have to wait a while to be served. Nice surroundings and not very noisey which was good. Overall a good night out and we would eat there again.

I visited the Swan Inn on the evening of 25th July 2014. Ordered sirloin steak with hand cut wedges, grilled mushroom, tomato and bernaise sauce. The steak was tough and very grisly, the hand cut wedges looked a horrible shade of grey and the bernaise sauce was a thick slop in a jug on the side which didn't pour, it... More

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

We recently went to view the air show and had been told about the Swan Inn pub having the best Veiw if you didn't want to go in we wanted to order food and sit in garden area but the only bit of shade was on a wooden bit of wall which was fine but as I'm 32 weeks pregnant... More
