We booked our meal at Swanson house nearly 2 months ago for a romantic meal as part of our mini honeymoon, It turned out to be one of the best meals we have both ever had!
Philip and Pat were amazing hosts, very polite and also very helpful.
We had to pre order from the menu sent to us to ensure that everything was available and fresh.
We both ordered the following
Broccoli and Black Dub Blue Cheese Soup, with Herb Bread Croutons (v) - Delightfully Creamy and fresh
Cumbrian Rabbit, Bacon & Black Sheep Ale Stew with Garlic & Herb Mash - Melt in your mouth rabbit, full of flavour
Sticky Upside-Down Chocolate Pear Gingerbread with Cream - Pure indulgance but did not feel naughty after it
Broccoli and Black Dub Blue Cheese Soup, with Herb Bread Croutons (v) - Delightfully Creamy
Local Game & Redcurrant Pie with Thyme and Red Onion Sauté Potatoes - Crispy pastry, excellent cuts of meat and cooked to perfection
Plum & Almond Tart with Homemade Vanilla Custard - Perfect pastry with a sweet hint of heaven
Sorry the above descriptions may seem a bit OTT but I really insist that you book a meal here, it is the best food we have had from a restauraunt in quite some time, its some homely and makes you feel warm inside.
Phillip and Pat even reccomended local attractions and also told us about the history, and events in the area, as well as just generally chatting it was like dining with long lost friends.
I wish them both the best for the future and we hopefully will be visiting this establishment for years to come
If you are ever in the area please ensure you book here as you will not regret it
