To call the White Swan a gastro-pub us to understate the quality of the food and overall experience of dining there. On arrival it was obvious that there had been considerable investment in this old village pub. The design and decor were clean, modern and efficient but still very welcoming. All staff we encountered were friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. The... More

Four of us dined here to celebrate my son's birthday. The evening was fantastic. We had complimentary canapés with our pre dinner drinks which were delicious. The staff are very professional and friendly. For starters two of us had the seared tuna and two had the bbq sea trout, both dishes were excellent. For main I had the duck which... More

Wow! I've been here several time before but this visit eclipsed the previos visits. They offered only the 6 course tasting menu at £45 and a wine flight at £15 and we were worried about what we were going to get. What we got was superb food and wine at a fantastic price. Canapes at the bar with our pre-prandial... More

Fantastic f&c - crispy well seasoned batter encasing fresh, flaky melt in the mouth haddock, chips crisped to perfection in beef dripping, and fresh buttery peas - an old favorite converted into a gastronomic delight. Did I mention the pub is tucked away in a picture perfect village off the M6 and M1? Inside, the 17th century inn has a... More

I was driving from London to Wales and stopped here for dinner. I didn't expect what followed. One of the best dining experiences I've had in a long time. Top quality food with attractive, modern presentation, attentive service with a smile, reasonable prices, great interior decor. Simply fantastic! I wish I lived closer to this place - it would surely... More

Top quality modern European pub menu. Busy on the night we visited which did mean some variability in service and food presentation. All in all, very nice atmosphere and attractive set up

We came for a birthday celebration and from the very warm welcome greeting when we arrived to the moment that we sadly had to leave ... a fantastic night was to be had. Once seated we were greeted with complimentary glasses of prosecco and canapés. We opted for the corn fed chicken and beer battered haddock for our mains, followed... More

Our friends had recommended the food at The White Swan and we were not disappointed. The menu had a meal for even the fussiest of diners and the tastes and flavours were amazing. The smallest of little details (including beef butter!) nothing short of exquisite. We were looked after by at least five people during our meal and I'm sad... More
