After several of my friends had recommended The Swan to us, we had high hopes when we went for dinner in April 2014. Such a shame - we had wanted to sit in the restaurant, only to be told that they were fully booked and without a reservation, they could not seat us, but advised the same menu is available in the bar. The staff didn't seem very interested and appeared to be students. I would like to add, the restaurant at this point was empty. As in NOT ONE person there. We ate in the bar and the food was nice and a reasonable price, but I wasn't blown away. As we left, the restaurant had a single table of four seated. We were disappointed and wouldn't come back.
