We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at the Black Swan. Our first visit here. Food was very good. I had the lamb tagine which was great. My friends had sandwiches which were brimming with fillings. Natalie looked after us very well indeed and was charming.

Dogs are allowed in the pub but not in the restaurant. There is even a bowl of water outside by the front door for dogs.
