Had a meal at the Swan recently. The pub is lovely and it is good to see it re-opened. The food was certainly different! I ordered "the seasonal vegetable tartlet" that comprised of what appeared to be Branson pickle, cheese and tomato in a pastry case! Although tasty, it was an interesting combination with a lack of seasonal veg!

Visited here after hearing that the food was good, and was not disappointed. The interior is very traditional country pub, and the atmosphere is warm and welcoming. We all had a mixed grill was delicious (and there was plenty of it). Would defiantly recommend

Wow what a difference, it's been a while since I was last in the swan and won't be leaving it as long again. I had heard the chef from the Tally Ho had taken over the swan and been meaning to try it for a while, really tasty home cooked food and a friendly atmosphere. Can't wait to try the Sunday lunch.

Once again you have out done yourselves, thank you all for a lovely evening. Had to wait a little as kitchen was very busy but the food really was worth waiting for. It's so nice to have a village pub that's serves pub food and pub prices. Keep up the good work

Went to swan last night for birthday meal thought we would try it as it has had good reviews.what a shame! The starters were all good but couldn't say the same for the mains. I had cod which was bit greasy it said all our mains come with chunky chips. No they were just cheap frozen ones rather tasteless had to ask for some ketchup to eat them. My partner had the mixed grill he was not asked how he would like it cooked which was wasn't good.When it came out it was covered in massive onion rings then when he got to the meat he began cutting off all the fat. What bit he did eat it was over cooked so he never enjoyed it. After they came to take our plates I did mention the mixed grill was over cooked and fatty that's why he had left so much so we asked for a doggy bag. She came back with doggy bag which was not all the meat left on the plate just the fat which was cut off so we was not impressed! They did buy my partner a pint but for £16.95 for that mixed grill We felt totally ripped off especially when the dog never even got any meat!
From now on we will stick to the crown down the road the food is brilliant there we have had many meals over the years and never had a bad one at the crown.
