Whilst staying in Sway we went out for an early evening meal at this pub. It is quite easy to find as Boldre is a small village. The pub has a large car park and the building is much bigger inside than it looks with lots of different areas to sit. It is an old property with lots of character and inside there are some tiled, wood and carpeted floors.
As we were with friends and a large group of 12 we were given a nice area which only had one other table for 2 so it felt like a private party. The pub is child friendly which is helpful.
There is a large garden with a variety of chairs including some deck chairs but it was a bit too cool to sit out.
Because of the size of the group we had to pre order our food and chose the pork belly with mash and red cabbage, it was absolutely delicious and the portion size was just right, it filled us up nicely and we were glad not to have eaten a starter too as it would have been too much.
Being a Saturday night the pub was very busy but the staff worked really hard to get all the meals and drinks served and remained cheerful.
Puddings were listed on a small portable blackboard and there was a lovely choice including banoffee pie, sticky nutty tart, strawberry stack and many more. The puddings were huge and very tasty and filling.
This is a very nice pub with lots of atmosphere, good food and service
Well worth a visit.
