Warm atmosphere and delicious dinner on a recent Sunday visit. Lamb with vegetables and a cheesy cauliflower mash. Truly yummy treat for a tired American traveller. I also had a very nice glass of wine. None of it poorly priced. Food arrived promptly and piping hot. My friends' dishes also looked great -- didn't get to sample them because they disappeared so quickly. A nice find for a relaxed and low-key dinner.

Great location and friendly staff. Food smells good but nobody told us that the kitchen would close between 3.30pm and 6.30pm. We would have loved to have a late Sunday lunch. Disappointing and it seems like they dont need the money...

Was the first place we tried when we moved to the area.

Has always been consistently good in our experience and now known by the staff.

Wine list always has some good options.

Another of our local favourites

Can be busy on a Sunday and in the good weather so worth booking in advance.

A lovely place to stop by for a drink. Wonderful atmosphere inside and a lovely beer garden that is liked to a hidden paradise. Friendly staff. Would definately reccomend this The White Swan. Reccomend booking for Sunday lunch.

We are lucky enough to have eaten here a few times. Food consistently good, but portions are too small, particularly for the guys. Recommend booking a table in advance as it's a popular pub both indoors in the winter and the lovely beer garden in the summer!
