We were part of a large group that enjoyed a dinner here. The food was delicious and served promptly. The meat nearly melted in your mouth. The servers were very positive and helpful.

Not a very extensive menu, but the food served is local and very good - Rump Steak (which can easily be rubbish) was succulent and excellent. Presentation was above average and the staff very attentive and quick.

Called to The Swan on the first night visiting the area, had the most friendliest server (he may of been the manager) . Service was amazing, we were really looked after. Absolutely gorgeous food, all homemade!! Very filling and worth every penny.
