Our order took over an hour to arrive, it was sandwiches!! Our server took our order then left off some of our drinks order despite writing them down. The wine was pricey and we had to have 2 bottles as we waited so long for our food. We had to chase the order twice. Despite these issues when the food... More

We popped in by chance looking for a cooked breakfast and luckily we were still in time. The full English is so good. The food is hot and delicious.

We wanted a convenient spot near the A27 for a lunch with friends and were delighted with the White Swan. Easy parking. Plenty of tables. Good service. Good food. Reasonable price. We particularly enjoyed the baps with pulled pork served with chips and a small salad. We'd happily visit again.

Stopped on our way home from holiday for a quick lunch. My husband had a pint of prawns, obviously been frozen as there was a lot of water in the pint pot at the bottom where they had thawed, also not bright pink like fresh prawns. I had steak, steak perfectly cooked, pots perfect, mushrooms perfect. However they dished up... More

This hotel proved to be an excellent choice for us and our friends. The rooms were very comfortable with good facilities, well decorated and very clean. The food was extremely good and the breakfast so great lunch was forgotten on both days of our stay. Highly recommended.

Random stop for breakfast on route to East Sussex. They served up the best breakfast I have had in a catering establishment! So good that I had to ask where the perfectly poached egg came from! The yolk was so orange that you went "Wow" as you cut it open. The rest of the dish was equally delicious with beautiful... More

Went in for a Thursday lunchtime meal to be greeted quite pleasantly. Shown the specials boards. To cut a long and very tedious story short. Orders wrong, food awful, staff not trained properly, manager did not come and sort it out. A very bad experience! Desserts were nice, the brown sugar pavlova was delicious but where was the ice cream... More
