“fish and chips ?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

They were the best items on the menu. The batter was good. I thought all the options were over-rich in either fat content or carbs, and although clean and well presented , very unexciting. Troble is, restaurant prices prevailed, whereas gastro-pub fish and chips = a bottle of wine should be quite a bit cheaper

Relaxed atmosphere. Very bad service with rude staff. Would also recommend staff to take on board any feed back given.

“Mediocre and overpriced”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2012

Visited on a weekday evening. Pretty empty. This place is typical of so many gastro pub/restaurants. Overpriced food. Substandard service. We ate 2 fillets steaks and a bottle of red and bill came to £60. Steak was served lukewarm and was tasteless. There are much better places within a close proximity

“Our favourite restuarant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012

I have been to this restaurant several time with friend and work colleagues and the service is always excellent. The food is of a high standard, with generous portions and a varied menu.
I was nervous to organise our office christmas party last year but The White Swan's service, atmosphere and food were fantastic. Even the fussiest people said it was our best do yet.

The decor is impressive and there are always lots of other diners giving the place a nice, quiet, cool buzz.
