“great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013 via mobile

A busy and lively pub serving very good food. I had to wait for a table so would advise you book in advance, but it was well worth the wait. My dining companion and I had a variety of tapas plates and loved every mouthful. We will return :)

“Great food and ale”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

We went to the black swan after going to the cinima and found a beautiful inn with a good selection of real home made food , a good range of real ales and service to match . Only one minor criticism they do not have a booking policy after 7 pm but overall an great evening

“Great Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

Visit here regularly, Busy place with a great atmosphere, the staff here are first class, very pleasant, very accommodating.
We have eaten upstairs in the quirky split level bar and in the 'weekend' restaurant downstairs. Food is always excellent. Hot, tasty and plenty of choice. Good selection of beers.
Great little’ must visit’ place.

“TAPAS”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

As can be seen by the title, I have only tried the tapas here, but it is FANTASTIC. Definitely needs to be shared just so you can sample more of it. I highly recommend the halloumi and patatas bravas. i will definitely come here for a third, fourth and hopefully many more times.
