I have lunched here many times and never been disappointed, and today was no exception. The interior is just right, scrubbed wooden tables and hop bines hanging from the ceiling, traditional but in a modern idiom. I keep coming back because of the wonderful food and brilliant staff, but of course the major attraction is the beer brewed on the... More

The perfect setting for drinks, lunch or dinner. The boys say the beer is brilliant and so much choice. We had dinner there the other evening and food was really, really good. I had the risotto which was cooked to perfection. Some of us had the rack of lamb and others the pork. The service was good and and the... More

How very disappointing. My wife and I have loved this pub/restaurant for a number of years. It has been a 'go to' destination for a long time. On Saturday night we booked and duly turned up. The old place is careworn. There is no sign of leadership or management. The service was patchy. In fairness, the waiters didn't do too... More

First visit to this pub and weren't disappointed ! Set in a small village opposite a lovely green! Good lunch menu and good service,I don't think there is a main restaurant but the bar area is fine! Will go again!

My partner and I had a wonderful meal with our daughter at the Swan a couple of weeks ago on the recommendation of friends. I am an avid fan of ales and, finding it hard to choose, tried all of the four different variations, all of which are made in the on-site microbrewery, and all of which were very pleasant.... More

Very little atmosphere. Cold day and no heating. But decided to eat after reading good reviews. Food was mediocre and expensive. Bar staff more concerned with friends around the bar. Very off putting that vaping was allowed in bar area - again I think friends of bar staff. Won't be back

Only been here during the summer but it has always had a really nice friendly atmosphere. There is a green next to it which is good for dogs to run around in if you're bringing one.

We visited for Sunday lunch on the 1st hot Sunday of the year- the pub was very busy (yet nice & cool inside), the outside tables all full, there was a really nice atmosphere to the place; the staff were friendly and organized despite how busy they clearly were and the food was extremely good. The pub interior I would... More

On a bright sunny day, this pub is really good. You can sit outside or inside, and if you have kids they can run around the green. The choice of food is good and some dishes are offered small or big according to your appetite. A good choice of beer, brewed on the premises. Just bear in mind that they... More

Had heard good things, but what a let down. The staff need training in how to pull a pint to start with, which beggars belief given how the pub brews its own beer. Menu is limited and several things were no longer available. My wife's pasta meal was stone cold and my hake was bland with vegetables that were undercooked... More
