A visit for my wife's birthday. Very welcoming greeting when we arrived as we eased ourselves in with a drink at the bar. Service, food and atmosphere absolutely perfect! So many fantastic flavours and staff very attentive without being fussy. Plus we popped to the shop to take a few bottles home too!

Good food, however random curry aspects and spice inclusions did restrict what was attractive to me on the menu.

There was no attempt made to control the volume of noise from a large group of people who quite clearly had enjoyed a wine tasting experience before indulging in more wine at lunch. This totally spoiled our visit which involved a special journey from our home 45 miles away.

They forgot my friends main course so we'd almost finished by the time she got her food. The apology was lackluster, although we got 5% off the bill... which was less than half the large and undeserved discretionary tip. They were 45 minutes late seating us for our booked table. The chefs did make me a meal not on the menu because of my diet, so that was good of them... But the food was pretty average. Some of the others in the party had some tastier things though. The bar area is nice and cosy.

Delightful evening with friends enjoying the dinner a la carte menu and Chapel Down's wine. Great service, extremely flavoursome food, and an after-dinner relaxation area to recover from the over-indulgence !

We were celebrating our anniversary (we got married in the herb garden a few years ago). Everyone is always very friendly and knowledgeable and made our lunch very special.

The staff at The Swan were wonderfully helpful and accommodating. They made us feel at home and gave lovely small portion options for the children so they could enjoy the delicious food on the set menu. We were celebrating our marriage and the chef created a congrats dessert plate for us, which was unexpected. A really wonderful meal and highly recommend the restaurant, the staff and the delicious food and, of course, the local Kent Chapel Down wine.

A group of 4 for dinner, with two of us celebrating birthdays. We chose the tasting menu for our whole table, with matched wines. The quality of the food and the flavours were outstanding. Prices reflect the quality, so good value in my opinion.

Every mouthful of food tasted like the description on the menu, however, I would have liked more of a vegetarian choice, thanks
