Amazing dinner from this great team at the white Swan....such great food, attentive and delightful staff and lovely and comfortable surroundings ! The atmosphere was understandably curtailed by COVID, but hardly noticeable which is credit to the team. Would highly recommend, and see you again the other side of lockdown !!
Fantastic food and service combine to make dining at the White Swan a truly memorable experience.
What a wonderful evening! Thank you so much to all at The White Swan for giving us a night to remember. Food was just incredible and the service impeccable. Will be back soon!!
We had a wonderful meal; excellent food and wine and fantastic service.
Food was exceptional
The food and cocktails were fantastic. It was good to talk to one of the chefs who was also serving because of the strange times we are in.
Great food , imaginative , full of flavour and beautifully presented . We will definitely come back to sample new dishes.
Thank you for the thoughtful chocolate free coconut treat. As always lovely, relaxed and delicious
Fantastic evening, fabulous food and service. Lovely to see you Jarrad and making us all feel welcome. See you soon, Melx
The food and service was excellent. Extremely knowledgeable staff make all the difference which is more than evident. Thank you so much for our anniversary card, lovely surprise.
Fabulous dinner last night. THANKYOU
Great food, great service and great to be able to visit at all - all the logistics very well organised.
We had a very pleasant evening out. The food was lovely, service was excellent.
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The focaccia bread was probably the best that I have tasted and the amuse bouche was delicious. The rabbit and chard pithivier was superb. The cote de boeuf was cooked to my liking and the bone marrow sauce was fine but it didn’t blow me away. I may have preferred a Bordelaise sauce more. The wine (La Tour Chollet) was lovely ( wonderful bouquet and long finish) and good value.
Fantastic service and really delicious food. Would highly recommend.
The staff were fantastic and the COVID measures made us feel very safe. The meal was excellent and a really high standard. My only hesitation in recommending you to others would be the price as it would be prohibitively high for some.
A lovely evening, food was delicious and staff a delight. Thank you.
We celebrated our anniversary with Sunday Lunch at The White Swan. Service was absolutely faultless, and we had some great chats with the team, learning a lot about some of the complex processes that were involved in some of the dishes. Covid restrictions meant that the restaurant was emptier than it would usually be, but this actually meant that staff had a little more time to chat, which was great. From the time we entered the restaurant to the time we left, the procedures for everyone's safety were clear but didn't affect our enjoyment. Great selection of wines - and the passionfruit martini was rather too easy to drink! Outstanding elements for us were the fantastic flavoursome focaccia bread, the mackerel, the liver parfait, all the elements accompanying the trout (who knew whisky jelly was quite so intense!), and the exceptional tiramisu. Thanks to the team for a very enjoyable dining experience. We'll definitely be back.
We were very disappointed with the quality and taste of all the food at £55 per person we expected much better. The ambience of the venue was rather soul less with poor canned music. The £55 price for the meal was significantly over priced and 3 courses were served and eaten in 75 minutes by the entire restaurant so the entire service felt rushed and less than relaxing.
Superb meal as always. Creative, delicious food and friendly service. Our favourite restaurant.
Innovative food. The tiramisu was well thought out and executed. The staff were amazing in every aspect. We would definitely recommend a visit to anyone interested in food.
Despite the difficult background of the pandemic the White Swan made sure we were safe , comfortable & well looked after. The food , as always was fabulous.
Felt a bit rushed but that's due to the covid situation and probably couldn't be helped but on a few occasions the members of staff walked away from our table whilst I was still talking to them ( I'm being really picky because it is such an amazing place). Overall the meal was exceptional. I would definitely go back.
