Being a member of the gourmet club gave us 25% off food and drink at this restaurant chain!

We found the swanholme through the gourmet website and what a treat it was. We were served by a very friendly young girl who went out her way to ensure we were well looked after. Food was good and came out in a timely fashion.

What we liked most was the atmosphere, kid free, a little background music, quite the perfect evening

I have not visited the SwanHolme for a year, after a bad experience! But what a difference this visit was. The restaurant is all table service, felt a bit different at first but worked quite nicely! We had a tasting platter to start, not your normal deep fried platter, but baked Brie and pork belly were fantastic!

A much better time was had by all.

I was persuaded to return to the Swan Holme after a very bad experience last May Bank Holiday. The place was very busy on Sunday. We all ordered a mixture of foods from both menus. The starters arrived resonably quickly. I was verysurprised that they were all of the standard I had been used to from previous visits, The main meals again without too much delay and again they were of a very good standard - presentation and quality were certainly not lacking this time. The one thing that has certainly changed from our last visit was that everyone has waiter/waitress service.
