Food was excellent, my starter of brill was delicious, my husband loved his ox cheek cottage pie, mains were very tasty and plenty of it. Great value too. Super choice of wines to choose from and could barely fit in a pudding so we shared!! The staff were friendly, attentive and knowledgeable without being in the way, just right. All in all a very positive experience and we will definately return.

We were a party of 4 and ended up having the pork shoulder for lunch. It was great. The meat was tender and the crackling was delicious. The sides were all cooked very nicely and the cauliflower cheese when down particularly well. The waiting staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. Only our second visit but we will definitely be coming back.

I brought six friends who had not been to the White Swan before. We all had an excellent meal and my friends commented on the pleasing atmosphere and the excellent staff. We will come again. Jim.

We had a wonderful evening at the White Swan! The staff were extremely friendly and welcoming and the food was simply excellent. I have no idea how the chef got so much flavour into the tomato consommé but it was delicious. And the pork and liquorice was an unusual but fabulous combination. The liquorice was sweet and rich and and went beautifully with the tender pork. Great selection of cheeses and the staff were extremely knowledgeable.

Excellent all round. The food rightly deserves its Michelin Star - well done to all. The idea of a small and daily menu (depending on local available produce) results in an amazing choice, so creatively presented. All the staff are professional, cheerful, welcoming and freely give their time no matter how busy they are. The cheese is board includes a vast variety of cheeses and Gareth knowledgeably walks us through it!! Finally The White Swan is always clean and tidy. So there is nothing that we could suggest to improve.
