“Great Sunday Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

My husband and I moved into the area last year and have visited The Swan many times for drinks, expecially during the summer as the garden is a lovely spot. We popped in for Sunday lunch yesterday and had a lovely home cooked meal and there was plenty of it! We will definitely return.

“REAL ALE AND REAL FOOD”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

First visit and well impressed. The Old Speckled Hen was 5* served with a smile. The menu is interestingly different and many dishes are old style English Fare. Excellent value for money in a quaint village pub Nice garden at back running down to the river so must visit next summer. Go try you will not be disappointed

“Great pub food, excellent beer choice...been 3 times”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

Visited this (gastro) pub on a Tripadvisor recommendation while on business in the UK and was very happy with the choice. I went initially on the Wednesday evening for the meal deal special - was fantastic food and terrific value. I sat out in the garden next to the river. I returned a month later on two other occasions - again on a Wednesday and the following night too. Food on all three occasions was first class and ridiculously cheap for what you get.

Great selection of beers too - Old Peculiar on tap.

Can only recommend.

lovely atmosphere with friendly staff. Good beer and food. Really cosy in winter next to the wood burning fires and great in the summer sitting next to the river.

“Worth travelling for.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

Recently visited for a spur of the moment Sunday lunch, on the recommendation of a friend. Great pub, lovely busy atmosphere, friendly efficient staff - table service in a pub!! Obviously a good cook in the kitchen, veggies were crisp and salmon was tender and perfectly cooked. Prices were good. Definitely on the Sunday lunch list!
