We visited on a weekday evening having found nowhere suitable in Sedbergh to eat whilst on our way home from holiday. The pub is well signed from the A683 Sedbergh to Kirkby Lonsdale road although no doubt missed by many heading south on the M6, which might go some way towards explaining why we were the only customers on this...

The pub looks idyllic from the outside but the food served inside is only average. Good portions but not tasty enough. Cask ale was good though. Quiet with little atmosphere.

Tripped over this place by accident and stopped for lunch. We were the only 2 people there. The lady who served us was charming and the food arrived quite quickly. The portions were good and we ate outside in the beer garden. The food was good and the setting of the pub is wonderful. If I can find it again... More

The Swan was quite empty which was understandable as it was early evening and mid week. We had drinks and a meal. Mine was the vegetable and stilton crumble my partner had the gammon and both were cooked well and the quality was good.

from the roadside this looked like a wonderful, gastro style pub. Items on the board were not on offer and the food was obviously straight from the freezer. Food was OK for what it was with generous portions. From the road side with attractions like beer garden and crafted beers, we were expecting more but on entering realised that there... More

Very welcoming Staff. Lovely old fashioned Pub,spoiled for me by blue lighting in the Bar. It certainly doesn't fit in with the Olde Pub atmosphere. The problem of the lighting for me is because of a Visual Imparment. It may not be a problem for many but it just looks wrong. Access to Ladies toilet up a small number of... More

Popped in to The Swan on our way back from Sedbergh on a sunny afternoon. Sat in the gardens we were served our well cooked, reasonably priced food by a lovely local lady. My wife's scampi was listed as "whole tail" and it clearly was - not the usual mismatch between description and meal - well done. My grandson's 16... More

We stopped for an evening meal after doing the 3 peaks challenge. We sat in the small bar, just as you enter the building. They seemed to have a good range of Real Ales, although i can't say if they're kept well as i was driving. The cheese and bacon burgers were very good as was the Barnsley chop. The... More
