We had a really great time on our first visit. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming and was patient with our puppy. The staff gave us great recommendations for drinks and helped us with local things to see and do. The food was absolutely lovely and one of the best Indian meals we’ve ever had and we loved trying local beers. We will be back !

We were very impressed with how the staff handled the new way of dealing with Covid and we felt that this was a safe place to eat and drink. The staff were great as well as the food.

Mixed feelings for this review - the food was fantastic and the drinks (the few that we were allowed) were nice, but the service was mixed at best and it was incredibly frustrating to be asked to leave after 2 hours with no prior warning. We booked online as we realised places would be busy and there was no mention on the online booking of a 2 hour table limit. To be fair it was written on the chalk board on entry but we were not the only table that hadn't noticed that and more to the point we might well have gone elsewhere if we'd been aware of a 2 hour limit. What was more frustrating was one member of staff told us it was Govt rules (it isn't) and the manager then told us that it was part of the license conditions for re-opening which seems strange that other pubs didn't have similar restrictions. To make matters even more annoying there were plenty of groups that arrived well before us and were allowed to carry on drinking well after we left - it felt like if you were local you got quicker service and the "rules" didn't apply.

Although we received drinks soon after sitting down it took an hour for someone to take our food order. Food arrived half an hour later

Lovely & friendly staff, really attentive. Could see that we were a bit cold (sat outside & the weather was awful! Wet & windy, so they handed us blankets!) Food was delicious! Have been here twice now and bought the family - we will all definitely be back again.

For a place to relax and have a pub curry, this is it. Popped in for a lunch time meal and a few drinks with some of the family and it was enjoyed by all. it was in fact so good that we drank more than expected. Lovely staff, lovely atmosphere. What more can you ask.

Only reason I rated atmosphere as 3 is just because we were sat outside and it was quiet. Food and variety of beer was fantastic, will definitely be coming back and would highly recommend.

Delicious as always! We've recently gone vegetarian and your roasts are just as exciting to look forward to even though we are no longer meat eaters. Thank you so much for such a wonderful meal. You really make people feel at home.

Felt very safe during our time at the Swan, following all the guidelines but still keeping the atmosphere and cosy setting we love about the Swan. Amazing food too, great value for money and super delicious. Topped off with great service, we weren't 'forgotten' about by being outside and very friendly to us. Have already recommended to others and would go back again.
