Awful waitress
Jun 2021 • Friends
Food was lovely as always but your waitress /barmaid with the blond hair is just awful, we will not return until she has gone or has been retrained, so please update your Facebook page if this ever happens so we can return, weve visited a few times now giving her the benefit of the doubt that it might be an off day, but she is so unwelcoming and short with customers that it ruins the evening, we had guests with us this time and like us enjoyed their meal but could not get over her attitude, sorry i never leave bad reviews but she is costing you customers and its such a shame weve eaten here for years.

Teach your waitress some customer service skills.
Sep 2020 • Family
Thought we would try somewhere different with the family so we booked her. Arrived to find the play area closed much to the disappointment to my two young children, I understand Covid has caused situations out of your control but please at least update your website to say this as when I asked we was told ‘it’s on Facebook’ not everyone has Facebook unfortunately. Mixed review, food overall was enjoyable and the portions are big but please teach your waitress with the blonde hair some customer service and not to be so rude. My whole party found her so rude and unwelcoming, not sure if she was having a bad day but it was certainly off putting and her attitude was uncalled for, especially when I asked to change my daughters choice whilst ordering which was met with an eye roll!! All other staff were fine. Would we return? Probably not after how the waitress was no. Shame as lovely setting.

Sunday lunch
Sep 2020 • Couples
Thought we would try Sunday lunch for a change at the Swan. The food was in my opinion OK nothing fantastic, thin cut meats big yourkshire pudding with an over done ball of stuffing inside it. It would have been nice to have had slightly more gravy or even a gravy boat. We asked for mustard and was given 3 sachets even though we were a party of four.
The waitress had a face like thunder which we all noticed and not really a smiling happy person you expect when you done out.
we will not return for Sunday lunch, shame because we have eaten here before without issue.

Another superb meal at the Swan
Jan 2020 • Couples
Yet again a superb experience at the Swan.
Meals high quality, piping hot, first class service and nicely in the country away from all the hub-bub of town centre eateries. No blaring music, great atmosphere and friendly staff, well worth a visit.

Sunday lunch
Dec 2019
First time here, very welcoming staff, lovely pub with a nice atmosphere. Service was good and the food excellent. Husband said it was the nicest steak he had had in a long time and cooked to perfection. Nice to have home cooked chips. I had the soup which was lovely and so was the bread. We liked it so much we immediately booked for the Sunday before Christmas.

Poor poor food and service
Sep 2019 • Friends
Poor service and poor food. A party of 12 booked and asked to pre-order, despite the pre-order they didn't have all the orders correct, only 1 small serving of chips (which was only a side order which we had ordered separately) between 8 meals when asking for more we were told "there to share between all meals" asked for 2 side orders of chips and waited..... And waited....... Never turned up meaning 4 meals were only half meals. When paying the bill the young lady proudly stated they had taken the chips off the bill, stated that only 4 meals were full meals and then had to go off and try and figure it out.

I had fish and chips the fish was a good size but the batter was over cooked and the chips (that came on my plate) were soggy. Very disappointed, would of been better going to McDonald's or nipping down the local chip shop.

Very very very poor, certainly won't be going there again. Avoid.
