Stopped for lunch with a friend recently at the Swan and was amazed at the restaurant / brasserie interior. Have stopped here previously in the summer and had a pleasant lunch on their small terrace but not inside. The interior is a bizarre mix of wallpaper and dark colours with a hideous patterned floor, uncomfortable chairs ( lots of different chair and table designs going on )
and no discernible design theme. It is as if they are trying to give a 'City' feel to a lovely Cotswold building, it certainly doesn't work for me!
As a previous reviewer said we were just handed a menu and shown to a table, not a word from the waiter at this stage. He returned to take our order and stood silently throughout. The food we had was fine, no complaints there but the experience was ruined by the miserable treatment. When we paid the waiter mumbled a 'thank you' and was an English speaker so no language barrier excuses, he just didn't want to be there. He won't have to put up with us again that's for sure!
