I have been to The Swan a few times since the refurb and had been happy.
However, I recently returned on a Thursday lunch, to a very average experience.The rarebit price has gone up, which would have been acceptable, except the portion is smaller - much less topping, a smaller salad, and no sauce/dip which I had previously had. Plus, I had the lamb kofta which was really average - tiny for nearly £6 and dry.I finished with a coffee, which came with a biscuit- unfortunately just picking it up , it totally crumbled all over the floor- the waiter's reaction was something like ... 'yes they do that'!
generally service was slow and seemed uncoordinated amongst the team.
I will return and give it another chance, as I have had good experiences previously.
On the bright side , the Victoria sponge was delicious.
