Took family here for a meal one evening. They were very impressed with the meal and the friendly of the staff. Besides the normal menu which has a good selection on, there is a specials board as well. It is home cooking style, but we thoroughly enjoyed all our meals. Would certainly go again! (And reasonable as well)

Aunt Bessie's yorkshires. But if you don't mind all that then it is okay. Personally I felt it was like hospital... More

After reading the reviews for this pub, I expected some thing exceptional, I didn't think it was. The usual pub grub, which was ok during the week. The Sunday carvery was huge, so go for the smaller offering if you don't eat large meals. I have to say that the staff are very helpful and friendly, and so that was... More

We tried to get into another pub in the same chain and was told 45 minutes wait. So we decided on the Swan and what a great decision that was. The welcome from the big fella behind the bar was warm and welcoming. We did not have to wait long and my steak was totally perfect. My wife had chicken... More
