Booking via internet was clunky because you have no differentiator of your restaurants on your booking site

I booked a table for my wife’s birthday. We brought along our 10 month son. Both were well looked after. Food was excellent and the service was spot on. We will be back, in fact we have already planned to come back for our wedding anniversary. A big well done to all the team

Took my husband for his birthday & he loved it. He has only just retired after working in London for a number of years. He was used to entertaining customers in the top restaurants in London. He loved everything about our lunch yesterday. The food was superb, service was excellent & the ambience was very welsoming. We will definitely eat at your restaurant again. Thank you

The restaurant's food and drink are of exceptional quality. We enjoyed it so much we are thinking of coming back in the summer. The only drawback is the lack of a subtle service from/to Headcorn station which caused us a few headaches going back in the evening. Perhaps it's something that you can explore, a partnership with a local company to provide this service, at a charge, of course, at least during peak season/weekends. Other than that, we loved the restaurant and the atmosphere is nice without being too pretentious.

My partner and I already enjoyed few delicious meals at The Beacon. This was our first time at The Swan and we can happily say that the quality of food and atmosphere is keeping up with our expectations. We can't wait to visit you again during a warmer season and have a stroll through the vineyards, followed by another gorgeus wine tasting and dinner. Thank you, Marco & Kelly

The food and presentation was excellent; we felt the service had room for improvement, even if we should not be expecting London level service in the countryside.

An excellent time with you. Great food and drink. The latter part of the meal was at a time when the restaurant got noisy, but that's life! Altogether a lovely experience.

The Swan coped well with a large party and the food and service were good.Kate was very helpful. We pre ordered The original menus supplied offered 2 and 3 course meals but with additional cost for vegetables and service charge.At the event, this simply caused confusion when it came to settling the bills and this detracted from the event. It would be far better to just offer a simple single price for groups.

A lovely friendly environment with yummy dishes all round. No children’s menu meant we were made to think outside of our “chicken nugget” box and the kitchen were fully flexible to cook any of the main menu meals as edited for children. A lovely end to a great outing and tasting.

We had a great time at the Swan. The menu was unusual, in a good way, and the food did not disappoint. The service was good and attentive. If I had any criticism, it was the atmosphere. Having said that I would definitely go back again

Beautiful surroundings. Staff very attentive. As it wasn't very busy possibly allow more space between groups of customers.

We had a wonderful time, your team looked after my Mum beautifully and catered for her Gluten Free diet (although only one dessert was a little disappointing, it was delicious). Thank you!

service was grumpy. the fact that i couldnt find a main course that appealed to me was not met with willingness. the birthday plate plumped uncermoniously in front of my son. asking for an additional side plate met with reluctance. food was good but not exceptional. Perhaps we might not have noticed this if the service hadnt been poor.
