“Fantastic food & excellent service”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

We decided on The Black Swan for a birthday celebration after reading previous reviews and a recommendation from a friend. We definitely chose the right place! We were seated next to a lovely welcoming fire to browse the menu. There was a very good choice. When the food arrived it was well presented and cooked to perfection. There were eight of us in our party and we all enjoyed our meals very much. The service was excellent, the staff were friendly and professional and as a previous reviewer stated "took great care of us all evening". What a great find, we certainly won't hesitate to go back there again.

“Top Place”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

We have eaten here 4 or 5 times now. We have never had a bad or even average experience. The staff are friendly and nothing to too much trouble. One of us is gluten intolerant and that is never a problem the staff have even offered to make a sauce especially to accommodate us. Its a village pub with a village pub vibe, but does great standard to high class big city restaurant food. Well worth a visit we'll be returning very soon.
