It's not often you get to go to a pub with a Michelin star. It was so much fun to enjoy the juxtaposition of a pub setting and fine dining. I was made to feel very welcome from the off and enjoyed a lovely homemade damsen gin. It's advertised as 3 courses but it's really 5 which is a lovely bonus. Each dish was lovely and well presented and very much worthy of Michelin star status. The staff were that perfect mix of friendly and attentive but not smothering. I didn't get the name of the guy front of house but he was excellent and really added to the experience talking me through the dishes and I loved his wine recommendations especially the gem of a ripasso he suggested. An absolute steal for the price and I would love to come back. Thank you for having me.

From ringing up to cancel our booking at the beginning of lockdown the staff have been so friendly & helpful rebooked with a voucher that had run out but still able to use which was amazing so thank you The food & service was outstanding & loved the fact that even thought it was somewhere you’d expect to have a high standard that it was done in a way that wasn’t snotty the only reason I’ve knocked a star off for atmosphere is because we were the only people in as it was the early sitting on a Tuesday night (new baby time for us lol)

The food was sublime and the service excellent. The setting is relaxed and informal and the tables a little too small, however we’ve made another three reservations so that says it all!

Most relaxed Michelin restaurant we’ve ever been to. The staff were lovely, good wine and just excellent food. Would definitely return and at that price it’s very doable.

In contrast to the usual choices on offer there was only a set menu on this occasion due to coping with COVID, however we could not have made any better selection than that presented to us. Every course was delicious and served with the usual White Swan courtesy and proficiency.

This place is just exceptional. Lovely to be there, charming staff (complete with sense of humour), and above all superb food and wine. Oh. and a cheese board to die for...possibly literally if I imbibe too often. The White Swan is a real treat, and the price is remarkable given the quality. Hard to beat and we have been telling friends and family all about it.

This 'pub' has earned and rightly deserves it's star. Visited many times over the last three years and the quality and consistency is outstanding. Combine this with the wine service and atmosphere and you can't help but look forward to the next visit.

Our second trip back here and we weren’t disappointed. The food, drinks and service were outstanding. A friend, who doesn’t eat a lot, came with us apprehensively but ate every morsel and more importantly enjoyed every morsel. We will definitely be back. Keep up the brilliant work

This was the first time we have been to The White Swan for a while and it was even better than we remembered. The attention to detail on each course and the flavours were excellent, the drinks were of a high standard as was the service provided. The staff were knowledgeable and professional.
