We found a lovely picnic bench in the garden to enjoy a light lunch in the sunshine on Bank Holiday Monday. No doubt the weather helped but the food was fabulous and good value. The staff were attentive and friendly. We hadn't booked but as we arrived there was a line of people arriving who had done so, so I... More

We were recommended by several people to try the Swan, and the menu looked good, so we booked it for our 15th Wedding Anniversary. An ordinary Wednesday night for any restaurant, but obviously a bit special for us. The pub is nicely laid out in a pleasant rural location, and we were given a choice of tables. So far, so... More

Looking for good food cooked on the premises along with good service, when nothing is no problem, then look no further whether it's wheel chair facilities, menu printed in French this restaurant can do it all, have been many times and always meets expectations.

We reserved our table about a week in advance using the online reservation service which worked very smoothly. It was good that we did so as when we arrived the restaurant seemed to be completely full, consequently the service was a little slow but not excessively so under the circumstances. The menu is not extensive, but sufficiently varied to suit... More

We've visited The Swan a few times now, with work colleagues, as a couple and most recently, with friends. This is an inviting, friendly pub with freshly prepared food from a varied menu. The staff are very friendly and engaging, that's why we keep coming back. Highly recommended.

We decided to try somewhere new and can't understand why we haven't been here before. Just outside MK and so far removed from the usual chain eateries which we are used to. The atmosphere was peaceful and quiet, no noisy music, just the gentle hum of people chatting. We were served by Lauren who was full of smiles and very... More

We visited the Pub as it had an outdoor section and it was a lovely evening to celebrate a birthday. Food choices excellent as we love the Platter boards excellent choices. The meal itself and the service is great and they did a lovely happy birthday on the dessert plate not asked for so nice? However, our meal was spoilt... More

I went there for a business dinner. The location is very good if you drive there, as a big parking space is available nearby. The service is great in terms of orofessionality and competence. They suggested us to take some food available out of standard menu and it was really great. We will come back

Visited this restaurant for the first time on a summers evening on a Friday with my partner. I had high expectations as many of my friends have eaten here before and enjoyed it. The atmosphere was relaxed and better than I expected, it was lively, filled with families, couples & some larger size groups of friends which added a nice... More

I don't usually give good comments and usually find something to pick on. But.. Not only are all the staff friendly & helpful, but the food is truly amazing. Simon the manager has an amazing team around him. I can not tell you what is best on the menu, as everything is mouthwatering and cooked exceptionally well. This is a... More
