We visited on Friday night with friends. The service and food was amazing, much better than any of the restaurants in Rugby. Everything we ordered was cooked perfectly and served with amazing attention to detail. We will definitely be back

One of the best gastropubs in the Leicestershire/Warwickshire area. Worth the trip. Very friendly staff. Amazing food. Good prices.

I visited the White Swan for a couples evening. I had heard good things about this place and it lived up to my expectations. The setting, decor and service was first class. The food was cooked and presented very well, the wine was served at the right temperature. Yes, it's not cheap though it's worth paying for. No doubt I... More

We've been here several times before and always enjoyed it. However the menu choices are now severely limited and overpriced .There was no atmosphere with a pretty much empty restaurant. The food was tasty but portions too small for a gastro pub. The service was average and not in line with the menu prices . Sorry to say overall a... More

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

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
