About Swan Hotel Bar & Grill
The Swan Hotel, Bar & Grill received an extensive refurbishment in 2016 to transform this beautiful 15th century building into its current glory.
Every inch of The Swan has been lovingly restored to create a stylish setting to eat, drink and stay in Maldon.
Our beautiful bar area offers more than just somewhere to come and enjoy a drink. We have a carefully selected wine list and a varied cocktail menu too. If you prefer a pint, then we stock many exceptional beers, including locally brewed options and guest ales.
Our restaurant provides somewhere comfortable and relaxed to appreciate food of the highest quality with friends and family. Our Head Chef has created a menu of varied dishes made from seasonal produce, which has been locally sourced where possible. Our grill produces mouthwatering flavours that really should be tasted to be believed.
Polite and friendly staff
Lovely as always 😋😋😋
Used the function room. Would recomend.
Really enjoyable evening, lovely food
Food and staff excellent but had to wait a while for our main course 40 mins. Felt that as we were in the back room we felt a bit neglected.
Excellent quality meal, good value & very good service too.
Very good food and service
Sorry but lights to bright in dinning area, didn’t particularly like eating dinner listening to clubbing music! Think a better taste in music is needed. Would not return. Service very good from waiter and waitress.
This was our 2nd visit & we were really disappointed! We weren't approached to go through into the restaurant, we had to ask. We had to ask for a wine list & 3 maybe 4 times during dinner, the men had empty glasses & we had to ask for more drinks. We had a peppercorn sauce which was sent back as it was watery, grey & bland. The waitresses face was a picture, no apology & she was almost disgusted I'd asked to have another! It came back with a load of whole peppercorns dropped in but still had no flavour! Get the recipe from Henri's at Madison Heights, theirs packs a punch & tastes of pepper! We weren't offered a desert menu & deliberately didn't ask for one, why should we! You missed a trick there though as 4 deserts & coffee would've been ordered & an extra £30/40 added to the bill?? We had finished our main course by 9.30 & then sat til 11pm when our taxi was booked, not ordering any more drinks out of principle. The waiter kept scanning the restaurant but didn't actually click on to empty glasses & not once did anyone ask if we needed anything else. He was more interested in talking to a rather unsavoury drunk client who was sporting a huge butterfly tattoo across her throat! Not sure we will be back again, £200 for 2 courses with drinks (that weren't forthcoming!) was a lot of money!
Had a really lovely evening at the Swan , great atmosphere, good food and excellent customer service. Will definitely visit again.
Action for Family Carers held their annual staff development day at the Cygnet Room. The venue was perfect and we were well looked after by Alex, not to mention having loads of fabulous cakes and brownies!
Great service! Alex checked in throughout our party! And everyone had a great time
Food was very good, only slight issue was that my medium Ribeye was rarer than my friends Medium rare Sirloin. Not a real problem as it was tender.
We particularly enjoyed the meal in the restaurant and appreciated the chef's willingness to accommodate our tight timeline. A comfortable stay with very welcoming staff team.
The staff were friendly and very accommodating. The food was amazing and staff members will still commenting on it the next day. Thank you.
1st visit, food and service were both very good
As I only booked the Cygnet room I cannot answer the above question properly. But when help was needed everyone was available to help us in any way. That is why I have booked the venue for next March 2020
Good service. Attentive but not intrusive. Great food. Will definitely come again!
Nice choice of food, particularly the starters which provided 3 of. Ussith a nice summer lunch menu.
We had a lovely meal! Food was fab so was the service.. only little quibble would be that the table of 2 beside us was extremely close! However it wouldn’t stop me returning
have visited before and been impressed however, on this occasion the food was just 'ok'.my son and I had ribs and they were average and chicken with pop corn was inadequate but, the main problem was service was very slow. we waited an hour from our starters being cleared to our mains arriving! Other dinners seemed to get their food quickly enough.
We had a great time. Delicious food and wine, great service. We’ll definitely be back.
Delicious food, lovely staff and overall a fab experience. Our third dining visit, and will definitely be coming again!
Chicken was dry and steak was wrong
