This gratuitously unpleasant review is in complete contrast to other reviews. No one has complained about our food in February and have to doubt the veracity of it. If anyone has a problem with their food or service we would expect them to say so...More

Service very good indeed and the wine was fine.Any restaurant which has ox-tail on the menu is fine by me. Food OK but nothing very special based on a very small sample.

Took the family in for a Sunday lunch, and was impressed by such an extensive menu. Had planned and expected a Sunday roast, yes it was there and so were so many other choices. I therefore changed my mind and enjoyed a really nice lasagna....More

Beautiful riverside location and well renovated. Good value food in a cosy atmosphere which can only improve as the staff find their feet. Worth another trip.

Hungerford���s Cygnet restaurant has grasped on to the idea of the organic movement with both hands and made a real success of combining sophisticated dining with eco-friendly ideals. For that real get-away-from-it-all experience Cygnet couldn���t be better, offering a countryside idyll in the shape of a gorgeously executed barn conversion. Bare wood beams cut in to white washed walls while rustic accessories really add to that bucolic charm. The menu meanwhile is created seasonally using fine organic ingredients, many supplied by the restaurant���s own farm in Inkpen. Alongside traditional English dishes you���ll find more imaginative twists plucked from across the globe to be enjoyed with a bottle from the exclusively organic wine list.
