The smallest portions ever. Thought it was a starter when it was served up. Very very disappointing as this is my favourite restaurant and I bring all visitors here for a treat. In fact due to come in two weeks time for a friends 50th wedding anniversary (there will be 7 of us) but wondering if the food and service will be any better. Considering going somewhere else now which is a shame. Not even an apology just our desserts given free which really didn't compensate. Very embarrassing as I had sung your praises to my friends.

I did think that maybe a selection of whole meal breads would be good for the table instead of 2 chucks of white.

Thanks so much for accommodating my mum and her food intolerances (onion and garlic) she loved her food and wine. It's been so long since she could eat three courses safely! We all had a lovely relaxing lunch with tasty food and drink and lovely service.

A fabulous 3 course Sunday lunch with exquisite food with creative flair and a very friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Service was very friendly and of course the wine list perfect!

Had a lovely meal for husbands birthday. Felt a little like we were being rushed but overall was a nice meal. was given menu at bar to look at food which was absolutely fine however no wine list. The server came over really quickly once seated to take our food order but didn’t check if we wanted drinks or a wine list to look at. Food was good value, only Critism was the pork belly had very little pork on it. Overall lovely afternoon

We enjoyed the food enormously, although there was a problem with service with each of my courses. The veloute was served incorrectly. I ordered lamb, but then had to change my choice as the lamb had run out. I was brought the wrong dessert. I have to say the staff were very apologetic and took the price of the wine off the bill, however I do expect better from the Swan
