1st time here in many years and was not disappointed! Great food, wonderful staff. Very much a case of YGWYPF here, if you want £5 quality, go and pay it somewhere else!

“Very handy off My very decent pub/ restaurant ”
Reviewed March 1, 2014 via mobile

I came up M50 and business colleague came down M42. The Swan was a smart, busy, and convenient business meeting point and the fact it was packed clearly indicates it has a regular lunch time audience. Recommend a visit. Salads were filling and service efficient.

“Lovely long lunch”
Reviewed February 21, 2014

Took a chance visiting the Swan as none of us had been before. I rang up to book a couple of days before and was dealt with very politely.

The pub was busy and became increasingly so while we were there, but this did not detract from the really good service we received. The menu had a fair amount to choose from but was not overly long. The food arrived in a reasonable time, was nicely presented on delightfully hot plates - it was refreshing to be told to be careful as the plates were hot and to discover that they were! This often is not the case in other establishments. The dessert menu again had a good choice, but was not excessive.

Even though the pub was busy, we were not rushed at any time - in fact our lunch lasted three hours! All the staff were friendly and courteous.

The toilets, which often let places down, were clean and nicely decorated and nicely fragranced.

The cost was fair for the meal and service we received.

Would I go there again ? Without a doubt. Well done the Swan!

“A little disappointed this time”
Reviewed February 20, 2014

Excellent location adjacent to junction 7 of the M5. Been several times and alawys busy, which is a good sign! Food was Ok but service not great. Plenty of staff but some more ornamental than useful. No attention once food served and kept having to return to bar to order drinks and coffee - and ev en then a local at the bar had to ask tghe girls to attend to me as I stood there like a lemon.
