Recently took a group of walkers to the Black Swan, second year running. You are assured a warm welcome and the food ( preordered in our case) came promptly. It didn’t disappoint.

Very cosy bar, warm welcoming staff and fairly good food. Black swan special burger was pretty good and real ale was excellent (wainwrights). Very good location, next to the river with a very good outside seating area. I will be going back soon!

Nice cosy pub serving a good selection of food. Meals we had were very tasty and generous sized portions. The lasagna was better than most Italian restaurants a member of our party declared.

I don't believe they do unfortunately. Think they open for drinks for a couple of hours but that's it.

We are a friendly run family pub. Where a warm welcome awaits you every time. You can sit outside on the patio or sit over looking the river Severn . Enjoying a nice ice cold drink or have a meal, looking out for the kingfishers or the otters. In the winter, you can enjoy a meal inside feeling the warmth of our log burner. Or just enjoy a drink. Soaking up the friendly atmosphere. Sit at the bar and have a nice chat with our friendly locals. We are a dog friendly pub. There are water bowls outside, for our four legged friends. We also serve a variety of teas, coffees, lattes, fruit teas, hot chocolate etc. There is a special board, which is changed throughout the year. With a large selection of vegetarian options.
