We had a lovely day at chapel down again. We do a tour, tasing and lunch/dinner every year and it never disappoints. The manager of the restaurant was absolutely lovely and made us feel so welcome. A great day!

Food was good as usual but we had a booking for Sunday lunch at 2:30 and there was no roast beef left. Disappointed as this is your signature dish on a Sunday.

A little slow in coming to take our order at the start, but after that, good service and nice food. The beetroot starter was fabulous, as was the homemade bread!

A really great meal. Small but varied fixed price menu with superb quality of ingredients. House Chardonnay was excellent and would stand a test against any French wines. Restaurant is in a beautiful setting with great views over the surrounding countryside. A very enjoyable visit

Really enjoyed our visit as we do every time. Food & drink wonderful. Only complaint is that the wine is expensive the markup from the shop I feel is excessive.

Service has gone down over the past few years, no head of service visible greeting and making sure guests are happy with meal/drinks. Very rushed by waiting staff at times also. Just not what it used to be :( Portions are getting smaller and smaller!

Food great value for money, excellant service, wine great but a little overpriced, which sends the overall cost quit highl. I’m very locally and would love to be able to visit regularly but due to prices it’s a place i would go and highly recommend for special occasion.

Myself and two friends had a fantastic lunch here on a wet, miserable Monday. We arrived to be greeted by a roaring fire in the log burner and enjoyed a drink and took in the quirky and cool surroundings which are well laid out and interesting. We found the food to be excellent. The menu was balanced and although not an extensive menu offered something for everyone. Every single dish was delicious and beautifully presented. We thought the lunchtime menu good value for money for the three courses. The service was relaxed and friendly with all our needs attended to quickly and efficiently when asked. Definitely somewhere to go that it is a bit special, to us this was somewhere you go to sample great food and also very good wine. Don't miss a visit to the wine shop downstairs and sample some of the many excellent wines on offer. We had a thoroughly enjoyable visit and will definitely recommend and return.

We went to The Swan for Sunday lunch and it was amazing. The restaurant is gorgeous, and the people who looked after us were very friendly and knowledgeable. Prices are very reasonable as well, we will definitely be back.
