After a busy morning of sightseeing we stopped in here mid afternoon just for a rest, drink and snack. The entry surprised us with a magnificent carving and various artwork throughout. Beer on tap met with approval and the Crispy Chicken Bites appetizer we ordered was very tasty. The service was very good and our server very friendly and because it wasn't terribly busy when we arrived she was able to spend extra time chatting with us about the area which we appreciated. We enjoyed the comfortable attractive atmosphere and would definitely return if the opportunity presents itself!

We loved this place, sat in the conservatory area which was nice and bright. The food was delicious as was the beer. Great service and would recommend it.

We visited here when our cruise ship was in port. The men wanted to find a pub and we chose this one from Trip Advisor reviews. The pub is very quaint and scenic with a glassed in porch on two sides. The windows were open on the porch and it was a lovely evening. The men did a beer tasting of 4 beers. We all got pizza to share. The pizza was very good and the men enjoyed the beer. Gin and tonic was the special drink of the night so I got one but it had very little gin. Our waitress was very personable and fun.

I would have given this restaurant 1 star except our service was very good! Friendly waitress with a good personality and she was on the ball! I can see why it gets good reviews because the beer and music are good. I have a single wild friend who loves this place? The appetizers were covered in thick breaking so that everything tasted the same: like deep fried thick bread. The thin crust pizza was doughy and thick, it reminded me of a frozen grocery store pizza. Don't go here for an actual meal, maybe just beer and dancing!

the breakfast at the swan a few years ago use to be excellent as well as the service. It took for the longest time to receive our meals over 25 minutes wait( and of top of that not busy). I ordered the chorizo sausage that has been cooked probably 3 hours ago; extremely dry and looking like a breakfast sausage with an awful taste!!! The breakfast potatoe had so much herbs on it that didn't taste like potatoe. Overall nice place to sleep but skip the breakfast there!
