Had a lovely Mother's Day here - food and service were great! I'm often reluctant to dine out on Mother's Day as you are often restricted to set menus and suffer from poor service due to places being so busy! However, the Swan with Two Nicks has restored my faith! We were a group of 9 who all thoroughly enjoyed... More

We sat outside and had a drink and some lunch in the sunshine. Staff were really friendly and the pub was lovely. Food was delicious and plenty of it! Will be back soon!

Terrible meal here last week. A real shame as we love the atmosphere but with so many good pubs around, there are plenty of other options. We'll go for a drink again but not for food.

This was our first visit since last year and we really mustn't leave it so long before we visit again. I love it here. It's a lovely, charming pub in a perfect location to drop into after visits to Tatton Park and Dunham Massey. The staff are some of the friendliest you will find anywhere. After our previous visit, I... More

Dropped into the Swan for a quick lunch after a lovely walk around Dunham Massey on a Saturday. We hadn't booked but we're given a table and told that were busy so we ordered sandwiches and chips within 10 mins. We waited over an hour for the food! The servers were polite but waiting so long!!! When it arrived it... More

Visited whilst on a long walk feeling cold and hungry! Welcoming towards walkers, dogs and dirty shoes which was good as we were filthy! Good pub food, not the cheapest but overall good value

I had not been here for well over 10 years and it was a huge pleasure to be back! A casual lunch and a couple of beers between old colleagues was just the ticket. It retains it's true "Pub" credentials and offers great fresh food also. I am especially thrilled that they allow well behaved dogs in the bar!! Service... More

You need to book to get in and a group of 6 of us ate there following a lovely walk around Dunham Massey park. The atmosphere is great. We went on a cold frosty Sunday in December to be welcomed by lovely festive decor and roaring fires. Wonderful. The food, whilst not gourmet, is well above your average pub grub.... More

Thank you for your review, pleased to read that you thought we were VFM and well above normal pub grub but a little confused by the statement food doesn't warrant the 5 stars even though its well above average. Thank you for taking the time to share your experience and look forward to seeing you again More

On our first visit for lunch this pub was excellent. However, not the case this time. The salmon fishcakes were in fact potato cakes with no more than 10% of salmon in them. They should have been labeled potato cakes with a trace of salmon! The chips and the batter on the fish were brown, not golden, and the taste... More

Thank you for your review, I do wish you had actually said something at the time and we would happily of changed the fishcakes for you. We normally get good feedback on this starter, so I can only apologise and this has been fed back to the chefs. I can assure you we change the oil on a very regular... More
