Super food

I thoroughly enjoyed our evening meal in The Black Swan in Waren . There was so much choice and it was cooked to perfection and reasonably priced. waiting staff were pleasant and although it wasn't busy ( Sunday evening) the atmosphere was fine. Would definitely recommend.

very limited choice of beer, an empty pub which smelt of drains. the staff were friendly & pleasant, but coming out of a very busy pub into this empty pus says a great deal.

We popped in here after reading the Tripadvisor reviews, but we're told they did not do food. Later found out that the chef had retired. Shame - it looked a nice pub, and being close to where we staying, it would have been nice. I hope they re-start the food sometime.

Very tired looking bar. No beer on tap available when we went and I would suggest no attempt to be welcoming. We were staying in a local cottage and had intended to make this a place we could pop into for an early evening drink. As it was we drank up quickly and left. Excellent location.

Wandered in for a drink, bar staff seemed not to know what beer they had on. The room didnt seem to clean and the atmosphere wasnt that welcoming to anyone the locals didn't seem to know. Drank up and left and will not be hurrying back.
