We visited this evening and the food was average but the chef must have a massive cigarette addiction as 2 of the dishes tasted and smelt of damp tobacco . When I complained to the waitress she agreed however the manager was having none of it and didn't do anything. The Bacardi and coke was also completely flat if you like tobacco flavoured food come here we will be giving it a wide berth

We have been coming to the White Swan for many years which in itself tells you that we like the food. They offer an extensive vegetarian selection which is very tasty whereas many others offer a limited range of bland veggie options. The sauces are well flavoured and textured. Often very busy and so worth booking ahead. Service is normally pleasant and prompt.

This used to be our local Chinese Restaurant and visited on a regular basis. However, things have deteriorated considerably. The staff are completely unfriendly and the restaurant has completely lost any atmosphere it used to have. The food is acceptable on a "local Chinese" basis but nothing special. If you are looking for good Chinese food, head towards Docklands where the restaurants are MUCH better.

Wonderful authentic food, good ambience and good service at a reasonable price. They also do takeaway at a reduced price. Always a good atmosphere in the restaurant.
