“fabulous food!”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

We were recommended to The Swan by our hosts at the Olive Branch Guest House.

Although we didnt have a reservation....which was evidently required.
The manager seated us @ a window seat for two in the restaurant area.

The service was great and the food even better!!!

“Amazing Sunday Lunch”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

Just returned from a great visit to The Swan, Broadway
FANTASTIC !!
We had a sharing roast platter for two. The meats ( Beef, Pork & Turkey) were delicious. Ask for extra gravy - it`s Fab !
Then onto desserts - we had a sharing platter (again !) - Apple & Rhubarb crumble, Choc Fudge, Treacle Tart and Creme Brulee - you must leave room for this - SUPERB !
Also, our waitress - Vicky, was attentive & polite
Well worth a visit

“Yum”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

This is a lovely pub, a diverse menu with something for everyone. We had the house patter, it was just delicious. Everything was seasoned perfectly and a really interesting combination of flavours. It was the best meal we had while at the Cotswolds.

Also it is free parking which is lovely to find as this is very rare in this area.

“Liz the Star Server”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

We have visited The Swan several times and have never been disappointed with the food, service or surroundings.
Our Server during our last two visits has been Liz who is an absolute Star. She is friendly, charming and will give your a weather forecast, tourist information or tell you about the popularity of wines should you ask.
This is one place worth visiting if you want good food in pleasant surroundings. Unfortunately it is so popular that we have never managed to get a table for lunch and evening booking is highly recommended.
