Welcoming pub with friendly staff. Some items on the menu not available but food chosen was tasty. Cheese board was particularly good.

We had Fish and Chips and a Greek Salad for the adults and the kids enjoyed Sausage and Mash and Beef Burger and Chips. The children's meal were reduced portions from the main menu but still a decent size and half the price. The... More

We went there a few evenings ago for my husband's birthday meal as we've been there many times over the years and really enjoyed the food. Having perused their website menu (which implied it was the current menu and not a 'sample' menu) I had decided on a couple of options depending on availability, so it was a bit daunting... More

Popped in for a quick lunch while sightseeing and didn't stay long. We enjoyed our meal but there was something lacking - maybe it was just a slow day but there didn't seem to be much atmosphere. There are some really amazing pubs and restaurants in the area so we've been spoilt for choice. Hoping a return visit on a... More

Matt and Jo at The White Swan are just getting better and better, having just got home from lunch today I could not recommend it more. My wife and mother enjoyed the seafood in the form of fresh sea base and cod loin cooked as my wife said to "perfection" my son had burger that actually looked half healthy whilst... More

We had dinner last Friday. They were great and didn't blink an eye when we called to delay our table due to the hassles and cancellations on the trains. Food us lovely - we had great baked Camambert which was tasty, and both the fish that my partner and I had were good. Nice and quiet despite the football and... More

Due to travel needs the five of us wanted to eat early at 6 pm and were warned it was Quiz night and the restaurant was closed but they could still accomodate us with the full menu available. The staff made us very welcome and with a table in the restaurant. The evening was a great success as starters, mains... More

Once past the bustling but friendly front bar you enter an oasis of tranquility where the dining room staff are politely attentive. We enjoyed, steak, chicken, a home cooked burger, and a whoppingly tasty ham, egg, and hand-cut chips. Good food, sensibly priced, and worth visiting. A good wine and cask-conditioned beer selection too.

Thank trikemaniac
