This pub is a favourite of ours. Lovely evening out again. Discovered that you offer vegan puddings as we saw a blackboard when we left - definitely be back to sample those !

Lovely evening at the swan....I had the mushroom spinach and blue cheese Wellington...it could have done with a sauce as it was a little bit dry......my friend had the blade of beef which was delicious, my other friend the pie of the day also very very nice. The atmosphere is always relaxing and cosy. Thank you.

A very enjoyable lunch with good friends, good food and good service. 3of 4 of us did not want an alcoholic drink and were surprised that The Swan did not offer Elderfower pressee but settled for Elderflower tonic, pleasant enough. The service was attentive but not intrusive, just right.

A wonderful Sunday lunch. The staff were great with our 1 year old waving at him from afar and chatting to him when they served our food. Beautiful food and a lovely afternoon.

The quality of the food was excellent, and the variety of menu options are nice to see. As ever, staff are courteous and polite. My negative points were the long delay in receiving our food (40 mins) and I felt that the food portions were quite small for the price, given that we were eating pub food.

Disappointing on this occasion. Table not ready and nowhere to sit comfortably and wait. When seated it was directly outside the gents toilet and we had to ask to be moved we had to find someone when seated to order a bottle of wine rather than someone see our dr8nks where finished. Have been before and had a much better experience. Maybe just a bad night and too busy

We first discovered the Swan over 2 years ago where we had an excellent meal. We have been back with family & friends several times since and the standard of food had remained excellent, backed up with attentive service. Last night we had a table of 5 booked for 7pm but left, for the first time, a little disappointed. 3 of our table went for the duck special and 2 for the Hake special. The 2 who opted for the Hake did so as the seafood pasta it was served with was supposed to come with octopus, calamari, muscles and shrimps. Both loved calamari so that swayed their meal choice. Firstly the waitress came back and advised there was no octopus, both asked if they could have extra calamari instead. What they both got however was extra shrimp. In fact they both found just two pieces of calamari in the pasta seafood. Of the 3 who opted for Duck I was one and asked for mine to be not too pink, it was served as asked and very good. The other 2 however found their duck a little tough and chewy. I didn’t get the name of our primary waitress, middle aged wearing glasses, but was not overly impressed. 3 of us would have ordered an extra drink midway through the main course but were never asked. I was going to get up and go to the bar, but the other 3 said to leave it. Then after our main course was cleared, we waited for 15 mins before I did get up and go to the bar to chase for being shown deserts. The deserts were good, but my order of the fruit pie came a couple of mins after the other 4 were served and then the pot of custard was near cold. I asked for the pot to be replaced and this time the custard was steaming hot, so by the time I actually got to start my desert the other 4 had finished theirs. To add to the little meal and serving disappointments, halfway through we found ourselves next to a very loud table of 9 that arrived, which made table conversation for us, 1 person of which uses a hearing aid, strained. So all-in-all somewhat disappointed with the whole experience for the first time in visiting the Swan.

Our mains were excellent but we felt that the Lemon meringue desert had an unusual texture and did not have a real lemony taste. Other than that our meal was great and the service and value for money excellent, thank you.
