After a bad start - had booked a ‘really good table to celebrate anniversary’ - got seated in draughty corridor - moved to a much better table. The meal was fantastic - waiter was lovely and worked really hard. Thank you!

First visit, very welcoming, staff very helpful but not intrusive. Our waitress, Tia, couldn’t have done any more. Great decor, Covid friendly will definitely be back once lockdown is over!!

Our second visit - great food and a lovely ambiance. Strict Covid rules in place. We enjoyed it so much, we booked for lunch next Sunday - which sadly due to the lockdown we’ll have to cancel. We’ll be back soon hopefully.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at The Swan. The food was delicious and the service was friendly and attentive. The space is beautiful and there was a nice range of choice on the menu. We gave advanced notice that there were vegetarians in our group and they were well accommodated — except that one starter we ordered to share (tarte flambée au muenster) included meat — it would have been great to have a head’s up as meat wasn’t listed as an ingredient on the menu. Otherwise, totally fantastic!

I have a mixed review, but ultimately I would not go back. Firstly the address states C.Norton but that is misleading as its about 4 miles away and very isolated in a little enclave, so you cannot walk or explore anything close by or in CN unless you drive. The room was pretty nice but was let down by minor issues which should be maintained, peeling wall paper by the bath, bedside light hanging off and windows rotting that need replacing. But I must say the largest bath I have ever seen, that was very nice. Also when booking it states B+B but does not say breakfast is only continental!! When looking at the menu's on the website it shows a nice selection of breakfast but none of these are included and you must pay to have a warm breakfast variety. The c/breakfast was pretty standard but again the menu is misleading as things are missed out, even toast was excluded. The food in general was very nice but the misleading menu I found very annoying. We stayed on a Sunday and I was going to have a roast as advertised only to be told its only on a lunchtime (please add that clarity). So I then ordred the beef and horseradish pie and mash expecting a puff pastry pie , mash etc to recieve a pretty expensive shephards pie. When questioned I was told the Chicken pie was as hoped with pasty etc, but again zero clarity and misleading from what you expect, so please ask questions. I think some things were lost in translation with the French bar manager. Alcohol is priced at the top end £22 for 2 glasses of wine but maybe thats the Cotswolds?. Overall a few refinements, greater clarity and this could have been a better experience.

We had an amazing Sunday lunch loved everything about it and the waitress that looked after us was simply superb ( with all guests not just us ) . I thought that 36.00 for a bottle of soave was a little steep but it didn’t deter from our enjoyment. It was our 4th visit within the last few months and will definitely come back.

The waitress was very good, knowledgeable, friendly, professional. Some of the starters seemed overpriced in comparaison to others.

We had a lovely time - the pub is cosy and welcoming and the food and drink was delicious. The only downside (and a small one) was that service was a bit slow - it felt like there weren’t enough staff, but aware it’s a tricky time so judging staffing levels must be hard.
