We are regulars and the service and quality never dips. A fabulous place to eat gourmet food at great prices in a great atmosphere served by friendly and attentive staff. Well deserving of their recent Michelin star. Superb service this Sunday by Olivia and Laura.

Great evening, the service was fantastic... a little eager at times but we were aware that we only had 2 hours on the table. The food was gorgeous and excellently priced. Olivia the front of house waitress was superb and very attentive. As was Gareth... The cheese board was fabulous!

A true hidden gem. The unassuming facade gives no clue st to the treat lurking behind . This is cooking of the very highest standard and promotes the White Swan to the Premier League. It takes it out of the Gastropub category , excellent as some of those are , and places it firmly into the finest dining category. Simply glorious. Wish we'd known about this sooner

Food is very carefully prepared and it shows the years of hard work needed to achieve Michelin status and this is a worthy accolade. I'm not a lover of earthenware pottery for all courses. I think that it does not show the food off to its best potential. Some courses a bit brown, and on beige pottery look dull. Tastes in the dishes excellent. Some courses need spoons as well in order to get the bits that a fork cannot reach. Room decor very bland. I know that it is a pub, but surely even a pub is allowed to have colour? Congratulations to Tom. Looking forward to the new private dining room as a space to have a larger party of people

We travelled from Manchester to visit The White Swan, and it was definitely worth the trip. The atmosphere was relaxed and the staff were all really friendly. The food was delicious and exceptionally great value for money. I will definitely be returning :)
