Ate here two Sundays in a row and really impressed with the quality of the food, there is a nice mix of traditional Sunday options as well as some unusual alternatives. Staff are professional and attentive without being intrusive and know their products. Simple things like explaining dishes clearly and offering suggestions as well as bar staff offering samples of...

Others had fish and chips and a chicken dish. We followed with sweets which were good but I have to say... More

Had unexpected visitors and needed a late lunch. Luckily the Swan is open from 11.00am until 12.00am on a Saturday. We were a party of four and everyone was pleased with there choices of food. Three of us are meat eaters so had a great choice of food. Not so much choice for our fourth person as she is vegetarian.... More

I've come here a few times on business, the service was good, the food was very good (the fish and chips portion in particular) and they frequently rotate the beers on tap. It's a great place to come on business and a good place to come if you're having a more personal visit.

Welcomed by staff, rustic decor, clean and organised. We were let down by the desserts. Four of the group sent the sticky toffee pudding back because it was just like a dried cake with toffee sauce poured over the top. There wasn't a problem the waiter asked if they wanted to make another choice or take it off the bill.... More
