Absolutely Fantastic.
Was aprehensive going seeing the negative comments on trip advisor.
My wife and I found the service and staff brilliant.
The food was absolutely fantastic. Portions were more than ample, but more importantly tasted so good.
Well worth going and would urge others to try.
We live in Lincolnshire, so are 4 hours from The Old Swan, BUT we will certainly go again when we are back in the area.

8 of us went for Sunday roast, 7 roast meals, 1 vegetarian. 3 had lamb, 3 had beef and 1 chicken. The portions were tiny and only 2 small slices of meat, and the beef was too tough to cut through never mind chew.at £10.50 a head this was very over priced. The vegetarian meal was a starter size portion. Overall the food was tasty, service was faultless and the atmosphere nice but wouldn't recommend if you're looking for a filling meal.

i recently visited the old swan and found the experience fantastic, the food was delicious i had the soup of the day to start followed up by the steak and ale pie finished off with the sticky toffee pudding. i found the food beautiful and they brought the food out in no time.
The staff were all polite and friendly. while we were waiting for our food the owner of the restaurant came and told us about the history of the old swan i found this lovely as she made the effort to make sure we felt welcome.
over all brilliant time, will surely be back soon :D

We went for a bank holiday walk along the Grand Union Canal with two of our friends who live in Ivinghoe and found this pub purely by chance from a sign at the canal. On entering it felt immediately welcoming and cosy. Although it was busy we were treated with courtesy and quickly seated. The food was hearty - check out the steak and ale pie and the historic cheeseboard. The place was very busy but we found the staff were attentive and the atmosphere was relaxing with the log fire and background music. A real find!

The old swan is a charming pub with a very friendly landlady and landlord. They have done an awful lot to clean up the pub and have done a terrific job as it was previously very badly run and attracting a rowdy undesirable crowd. I can only imagine some of the comments here may have been written by the aforementioned people who were not welcomed with the change of the landlord. The food is average to good, the beer is kept very well and the pub inside is very peaceful and traditional. It has recently been voted Buckinghamshire family pub of the year 2011 and I take my family here regularly. My advise would be to give it a go, expect decent pub food that won't win any awards, good beer and a warm welcome.
