Description: The Swan is a stylish pub & restaurant in the lovely village of Woburn Sands and a haven away from the nearby bustle of Milton Keynes. Here you'll always find candles on the tables, a roaring log-fire in the winter and freshly cooked pub-food all day, every day. Our buzzing bar is a perfect spot to socialise over a bottle of wine or a pint of well-kept cask ale. We have the best spot on the high street to watch the world go by!

The tables were covered with empty glasses and plates.
The portion size not very big and the chicken felt spongy

The pub is a nice enough pub and the food is good (but a bit overpriced) - but the service is terrible, took 30mins for our drink order to arrive, then ignored by staff and only were asked for our food order after 45mins. We were given our bill after our main course - even though we didn't ask for it and wanted pudding

Beautiful pub tucked away at the end of the high street..

Popped in for an afternoon beverage to quench my thirst, to be greeted by smiling staff, beautiful surroundings and a cracking atmosphere.


Sad to see negative trip advisors when it's a little gem of a pub.. Will Definately be returning soon, keep up the good work!

Booked for Sunday lunch - food for kids very good and nice and early. Roasts (single meat) overpriced and the rare beef was thick cut and tough (certainly not pink!). Second round of drinks failed to come but was then not charged for as a gesture which was nice - note to the Swan you can't disguise Christmas pudding cheesecake as rum and raisin! Still - the choccie puddings were nice and the waitress of friendly enough - food generally good but not amazing.

Arrived at 7.30pm was seated fairly quickly, drinks served quickly. Waitress was good not over bearing, the food was good the fish and chips was massive. It was a pleasant experience will return
