Went with parents over the bank holiday weekend. Lovely country pub setting and the food was brilliant. The Beef and Stilton Pie was full of filling and could've served 2 people and my Duo of Duck was delightful. Very reasonably priced and the staff, although a little timid, were very pleasant and accomodating. Well definitely return when visiting family again

We really enjoyed tapas night. The food was fantastic, we all had different dishes and every single one was gorgeous. The flamenco singers were great and really added to the Mediterranean atmosphere as did the English weather, which was also usually Mediterranean! A really great night we will remember for a long time. Thank you

Very brief posting as we visited two weeks ago only to wait at the bar for 5 mins before being served drinks, The lager was flat and the wine served in a dirty glass. Decided to eat elsewhere after discovering the filthy toilets.

Used to be a lovely country inn.

The swan is a really lovely place to enjoy a meal. Sitting in the conservatory, even though it overlooks the car park is still quite pleasant. The staff are very welcoming and friendly. The food is exceptional, especially the carvery. It is a lovely old building and seating is really comfortable in the lounge area, especially in the winter months, in front of a warming log fire. I have never stayed over and slept in their rooms but have been tempted to, with a very good Christmas and new year offer of all the trimmings at these festive times with bed and breakfast . Price wise the food is very reasonable , especially the carvery, and the puds are to die for. , ! Ignore a negative review, they must have been visiting another swan restaurant ! , !

We have been here a number of times and have always had an acceptable meal. I note the mixed reviews and can only speak as I find. We dined here this week and the food was very good and the service at a high standard. We were made most welcome. We were a party of four all eating something different. Each of us wanted to vary our dishes and the staff were most accommodating. When tables were vacated they were cleared very quickly and reset. I noticed while we were there that other diners were well treated and the dishes all looked good. All in all we were all very satisfied.
