“evening with friends”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

Excellent value for money - "little plates" if not too hungry. Fantastic specials if order before 7pm. Good choice of menu and good portions. Staff always very welcoming even if popping in for coffee. Would certainly recommend lunch and early supper.

“Very pleasant meal at the Black Swan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

We had a family lunch in this pub recently. The staff were very helpful and enthusiastic, and could not do enough to ensure that we all enjoyed our meal.
There is an extensive menu, with some creative dishes available,certainly not the usual pub fare. The food was delicious, perfectly cooked and well presented.
Although the restaurant was busy, the service was swift and efficient. We all really enjoyed our meal, and I thought it was excellent value for money. We are sure to return to this delightful pub again.
