“Cold food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2014 via mobile

Booked this pub as our final meal on our holiday as we had passed it many times and thought it looked nice. The staff were friendly and the atmosphere was good. However, we ordered a red thai chicken curry, which came out cold and had not been heated through. As a result, two of our family members did not eat their meal, yet we still paid the full price.

Thankyou for posting a review - sorry to hear you did not enjoy your visit - if we had been told of your cold curry at the time of your visit we would have happily replaced it with a meal of your choice

“Great food lovely friendly staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014

We have Visited this pub on a number of occasions, as the steak & ale pies are fabulous, crammed with melt in the mouth steak, no fat! & melt in the mouth pastry. All home cooked which is rare these days. New potatoes, cauliflower, carrots, brocolli all cooked to perfection, & delicious gravy (plenty of it) you will not be disappointed I promise you.
Staff are so friendly, & you are made very welcome from Norma & Steve & ALL staff

“Very Friendly Pub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

Visited Black Swan yesterday while staying at Dacre Lodges, met by Norma & Steve the proprietors who we found to be really friendly. Stayed for lunch which was very nice & reasonably priced.
Would definately recommend & would think about staying in one of the two "Glamping" lodges to the rear of the pub if went back .
Thank You
