We stopped here while travelling having done so before. Last time we struggled to get a table, this time there were loads. We taken to a table which was draughty and cold. We were moved to the next table - just the other side of the draughty doorway. I had chicken pie which was very tasty, but clearly mass produced... More

Its interesting to read that other customers in recent weeks have either loved the Swan or had experience similar to ourselves. We have been Swan customers for a number of years now and last visited earlier in the year when the menu was tasty, staff friendly and helpful. We called in for dinner this week and were a tad disappointed.... More

We were driving passed and decided to go for lunch as we hadn't been for at least a year. Outside looked smarter than we had remembered and on going inside we were met with a warm welcome. The interior had been redone since our last visit and the place had a really friendly atmosphere. Staff super nice and we were... More

Dropped in for lunch on the off chance and were very pleasantly surprised - staff were attentive and very polite - menu looked great and could have chosen more or less anything from it (even the veggie options sounded delicious!!) Food arrived quickly, was very freshly prepared - The battered fish was probably one of the nicest pieces of fish... More

Having visited the Swan on numerous occasions over periods of time for Sunday and evening meals and always enjoyed our meal, sadly Sunday's visit was surprisingly disappointing. The bar staff and our waitress were pleasant and helpful, but it was the quality and presentation of our order that left us disappointed, having ordered the chicken pate for starters at £6:95...

£12.55 for a pint of Peroni and a pint of Badgers best. We will not be coming back. Front garden on a really busy road too.

Mike E, Owner at Swan Inn, responded to this review

If you would like to call us to discuss your comments re: prices, as Badgers Best is only £3.65 so it appears there may have been some confusion,we would be delighted to talk to you. We also have extensive gardens to the rear of our pub away from the road should you prefer a quieter spot. Thanks Mike More

Quaint old fashion pub, nice setting with nice garden and a stream running through it. Dropped in for lunch and wasn't disappointed, standard varied menu and the food was very good. Stone floors and rustic tables and chairs make it a very welcoming pub. No complaints from me and will go again

Popped in last Sunday, restaurant was not even half full so did not expect to wait nearly an hour for food. Waitress seemed grumpy, dinner came with no gravy so we asked for some!! Then was handed a egg cup full to share! Naturally we asked for more! Chicken was cold, beef very fatty, stuffing seemed like it was microwaved... More
