We have been diners here since its early days and it has always been a favourite place. Due to personal circumstances we have not been able to visit for a while. Finally got back and despite the Michelin star it has not changed its character or spoilt its appeal. It has a friendly informal style that we like with food that is of the very highest quality and packed with flavour. I have to admit the food has always been its best feature and it still is but even a shade better. The special events are well worth treating yourself too. We look forward to making more frequent visits when we can. Recommended to everyone who love the highest quality food in a small relaxed restaurant with no gimmicks.

Good service and the food we had was tasty and well prepared, but I found only having two menu choices other than the taster too limiting, and felt I was forced to choose something I did not really want.

We arrived to a warm welcome from the friendly attentive staff. A pint of Timothy Taylors Landlord bitter was in perfect condition, they know how to look after the beer at this pub. We were shown to our table and the four of us ordered different dishes; all without exception were delicious. Tom Parker is producing some amazing food.

Enjoyed our second visit to the Swan. Food was amazing as last time. Our only complaint was that it felt a little chilly sitting next to the window. Fire was lit. Thank you and we will be back

5 stars across the board, the service was amazing. The food was delicious, the servers were amazingly friendly and kind. We can't wait for our next visit. I brought my aunt here upon her visit from Connecticut USA and she adored it.

Food was absolutely lovely; local produce beautifully cooked with style and no pretension. Excellent value. We eat out frequently and found your staff the best we have encountered for a long time; keen to tell us about the food and handmade crockery, proud of their cooking, very pleasant but not pushy or constantly asking how we were doing. Very impressive from start to finish
