After a winter's day walk at the seaside we were totally in the mood for Fish n Chips. The Swan came recommended and it did not disappoint. It delivered exactly what was needed. Perfectly cooked fish, proper chips, yummy mushy peas and a great cuppa. I'd go as far to say it was the best I've ever had. More than... More

Always great tasting and traditional, fresh cooked food. Fish prices could do with being a little smaller and the prtions slightly bigger. It is both eat-in and take-out, either way the quality is consistent. If I am working in Southport this is where I choose to eat

The staff especially Bridget were excellent, they couldn't have been more helpful. The disabled facilities are excellent with a big wetroom with clean facilities. The food was excellent and hot, my wife had the Plaice dinner for £9 and I had the haddock one for the same price. They came with a drink and bread and butter included. We will... More

Yes, walk past all the chippys ... visit this takeaway and restraunt (behind Debenhams on Lord Street)... possibly the best chippy I've ever visited.... not just 'fish' ... cod, haddock, plaice. .. hear service and great prices.... why can't all chippys be like this? Lovely... well done to all the staff!

The Swan was recommended by someone at the Hotel we were staying in. Service is the good old fashioned way, nothing pompous or patronising. Lovely menu, food arrives promptly and is hot. The fish is outstanding, crispy light batter, not greasy. The chips are the same. You have to order gravy, it's delicious. If your with children you don't need... More

Have lived not ten miles from Southport for 30 years and visit regularly but have never been to the Swan. It is tucked away at the Debenams end of Lord st. It is a great place to have fish and chips, we were surprised, as it was much bigger than expected, the staff were very friendly. Most people visiting appeared... More
