We've been coming to The Swan for about 4 years at the rate of 3 or 4 times a year. Having been firmly on the roster of our favourites for Sunday lunch we were very disappointed on our recent visit. We love the pub so I don't want to be alarmist but the quality of the roast lunch was significantly lower than what we had become used to - butter carrots, kale and cauliflower and cheese were replaced by wilted, overlooked unbuttered green beans and carrots, towering yorks hires now flat and soggier. The beef, while generous, was obviously of lower quality..... My Harvey's was even cloudy. Such a shame as the food prior to this has always been exemplary.
We generally go out to Sunday lunch when entertaining and based on our recent trip we will be skipping The Swan for a while as we don't want to risk it..... The approach to the food suggests the overall philosophy has changed which is disappointing.
There's lots to like about the pub however and we are local so I hope thy this was either a one off or that things are turned around.
