Guests can enjoy a relaxing meal or drink in a truly special environment that combines traditional and modern design. Guests can warm themselves in front of our wood burning stoves or dine alfresco and take in the tranquil gardens with the soothing sounds of the stream.
We welcome dogs and their well behaved owners in our garden and bar areas and it's a great place to start or end a day out with a lovely meal and refreshing drink.
Situated in the village of Newtown just outside Newbury 5 minutes drive from Highclere Castle and conveniently located close to the A34 and Newbury Racecourse.
Great food and considering there were 8 of us the service was very efficient and courteous. This was a great place for us to meet as we came from Oxford, Portsmouth and Staines. Will do it again soon.
Excellent, friendly empathetic staff, divine menu...puddings sublime
Excellent food and service. Highly recommend to anyone.
Lovely venue for Sunday Lunch. Staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. Food was plentiful, excellently cooked and tasty! Only negative was the prices: £3.80 for a pint of coke! Will go again though, triple roast was delicious!
Food very good service excellent. Have been two weeks running.
Always a lovely meal, great service and yummy food....recommend
The ambience and service was very good. Felt it was a little more expensive than other pubs for the same food.
Excellent food and friendly and efficient staff, in pleasant surroundings. Much enjoyed.
Very nice lunch good quick friendly service considering it was a very busy Sunday lunchtime.
Fantastic food loverly pub staff fantastic. Will be visiting again soon
Very nice pub, food was superb and even better service from a warm friendly team.
Food excellent and staff very attentive and friendly
We were put into a small area with three tables looking out into a stream and a beer garden. On sitting down there was another table occupying four ladies. It was extremely noisy. We ordered our food which was pretty average and decided to share a dessert. We ordered Rocky Road Cheesecake and two coffees. When our dessert arrived we were quite shocked at the size of the portion for £6.50. We are not greedy but thought it was taking the for the portion size. We paid and left and don’t think we will return.
Lovely place and the food was excellent. Only slight issue was the wait between the starter and main courses, which was over 45 minutes, but as we weren't in a rush, didn't cause us to many problems.
Had a lovely Waitress nothing was to much for her.
Very easy to book online, immediate welcome and seated. Taken to a lovely table overlooking the stream at the back.
Asked if we’d like drinks straight away and given a menu.
Good choice of food
Drinks and order taken promptly
Food arrived, well presented, good amount, very tasty.. could t fault it
Only fault I have was, I ordered a large glass of dry white wine and soda, which at £8 ish I thought was rather steep
Great food. Lovely place. Brilliant staff. If I had to say one thing against this place it would be the portions are too big but that might suit others
Lovely family Sunday lunch, great to spend some time in the pretty beer garden too
Great staff and great food. A very nice pub.
Business lunch meeting, so there for 3.5 hours.
Firstly, we were told that we could not run a tab if we wanted to eat outside. Nor could this be overcome by leaving a card behind the bar - a great welcome!
Starters of salted squid were over deep-fried and, I imagine a Brakes Bros standard buy in.
My sea bass comprised two small and very thin bits of fish - dry and over-cooked.
Excellent as always, great food and friendly staff
We had a celebration for 8 people. It was lovely. Food and service very good. Everyone enjoyed their meal.
Lovely meal and perfect setting only slight negative was that felt a bit rushed to eat up
Great pub, fantastic food, good service. I would definitely recommend it for indoor or outdoor dining.
Had a very pleasant time!! Staff were very nice & attentive!! Lovely garden.
Would have liked more gluten free options.
Booking system stated that all tables prior to early evening were booked. When we arrived, there was only one table in use. No atmosphere. But great staff and food.
Lovely meal out for our anniversary. Very quick service and food was outstanding. Would definitely recommend to friends and family.
We were looking for something a bit special for a night away. We found it at The Swan. The staff were excellent, very friendly with prompt service but without being intrusive. The food was delicious, once we had chosen from an extensive menu. If you're looking for a lovely place to eat without it being over the top I definitely recommend The Swan.
Visited for my husband’s birthday and we had a lovely evening. Booking was easy online and they even wished my husband a happy birthday as we arrived. Service was quick and the food was delicious and amazing quality. Only slight issue was it took a while for our drinks to arrive from the bar. Will definitely be visiting again soon,
friendly staff and the food was well presented and very good.
Worst Sunday lunch I have ever had. The beef was very good but it was laid across a pile of veg and damp roast potatoes, covered in a thick black gravy and then topped with two huge and inedible Yorkshire’s. We ate the meat and just couldn’t eat any of the rest. Dire
We visited the Swan for the Third time with friends. The first time was in late 2018 and we enjoyed the atmosphere & the food. Unfortunately, on this occasion, the food was not to an acceptable standard. The main concern was the medium rare sirloin steak which was tough and inedible. We also ordered sea bass fillets which were very dry. The salad I had with my Camembert & beetroot tart was nearly all rocket. Its disappointing as this is a good mid point meeting place for friends as we currently live in the Swindon area.
Food was good. Service was friendly and efficient. Did not wait long for mains to come out and was welcomed with a smile.
Lovely friendly pub with good food in a nice setting both inside and out
First visit and I was really pleased. Lovely food, friendly staff and a good venue. I would definitely go back again and recommend the pub to others.
Good Pub with nice Garden at the back with a stream running through it. Food was good quality and nice and Hot. Service was polite and efficient. Prices were comparable to similar establishments. We have visited before and will in the future
Met some friends as this was an in between destination. Food was good, service was friendly. The outside dining area is fantastic and there are some nice walks nearby
Requested and received dog friendly table with ease. Dog biscuits provided at table on arrival. Very attentive and friendly staff. All round, a very pleasant and trouble free experience.
Excellent food. Very fresh ingredients. Haloumi burger a real feast for a veggie.
Service levels are excellent and food was served hot and cooked to perfection. Really enjoyable evening at a quality venue
