We descended upon the swan with 17 people last Friday before our wedding in the village on Saturday. The staff coped reasonably well with the number of orders and the food was quite good and fairly priced. Glad we chose to come here. Good variety of gin and wine.

So after a long absence I ventured to The Swan again on Saturday. It wasn't my idea to meet here but that of my friends who are looking to move to the area as they viewed a property opposite. It was early - 12.00 noon so the bar was quiet. We ordered two courses for lunch to be eaten in... More

We had a very poor meal here a few months ago, so were not expecting much. However, we were very pleasantly surprised. No other customers mid week, and the service was efficient without being too obtrusive. Two of us had the set menu, which was excellent value - chicken in a spicy sauce and three scoops of ice cream with... More

Went with my family and overall the food was decent however the service was very slow and the asparagus tips were inedible. Its always the small things that make the difference and this would be a fine place to dine if they paid attention to that.

Super cosy, friendly and warm place to meet friends for a few warm up drinks pre-dinner. A little "up the wrong end of the high street" but worth the walk!

We can on for a meal at half two, it was fairly busy but not ridiculously busy! There was mess left everywhere and we were told to move stuff off a table and sit there, we waited an hour before asking to be served to be told 'well it's bar service there anyways' completely unprofessional! Then once waiting an hour... More

Hi Kelly W It was disappointing to learn of your experience at the Swan, but thanks for taking the time to complete a review. When you had arrived at the pub, the team working had had a busy lunch service, so it may not have appeared busy at 15:00 when you and your guests arrived. The team were clearing up... More

Recently attended The Swan with a large party for the festive lunch menu. The Manager and his team could not have been more attentive. From the original booking - nothing was too much trouble. The food was beautifully presented and tasted delicious and the service was good. Thanks very much !
