Booked online said they didn't get the booking although I showed them confirmation. Made it out like it was my problem their systems weren't linked properly. Service was slow. Dessert came 20 mins after my hot drink which was supposed to be together. Came out the brownie was surrounded by a pool of ice-cream not good.

Ambience was extremely good, the menu was lovely except no Gluten Free bread to go with the pate.
Our server was a lovely lady and she couldn't do enough for us.
I was very pleasantly surprised as previous visitors had not been very happy.
Thank you very much .....Olwen Bird.

Unfortunately The Swallows Nest had not received a booking from Open Table. This had happened in the preceding days too when other diners who had booked thro Open Table arrived to find no booking had been communicated. Happily The Swallows Nest could and did accommodate our party without a booking.

1st of all didn't have our reservation , luckily another family member had double booked. 2nd had to send back my starter as cold in the middle, second one was also cold in the middle so i just ate around it. 3rd the crumble wasn't cooked it was wet and stodgy (microwave job i reckon) . Have eaten at the Swallows nest many times and this is the worse meal i have had. You have lost our custom as we won't be eating there again.

Good food, great atmosphere and quiet enough to be able to hear each other. Good value too as I had been emailed a voucher! Win win!

Beer well kept, food choice excellent, really good service - what more could you ask for?!
Can recommend the sticky duck salad - very tasty and more than enough of it to satisfy the appetite. The garlic cheese flat bread was excellent too - we had this served with our main course (didn't have starter or sweet so can't comment on those). I usually end up at this pub after a dog walk for a pint outside - great views. Dogs are also allowed in the pub in the bar area - bonus if it's raining!

This was dreadful. We were crammed into a table that was too small in an alcove. The food was very poor indeed, and the steak pie I ordered changed into a chicken pie when it arrived. We had booked and had two courses and wine but were informed by our incompetent waitress that 'I need your table as there are people waiting' after only 50 minutes. No tip left, obviously and appalling service and food quality. Certainly not worth the £50 we paid. They will not be seeing us again.

Having sent us an acknowledgment of our booking, plus a reminder of the booking just before, Open table failed to inform the Swallows nest that we were coming. Fortunately they had had a cancellation and were able to fit us in, otherwise our Mother's Day treat could have been a disaster. We will book direct with the Swallows Nest in future.
The staff, as always, were lovely and the food excellent.

Very good service and food. Only quibble was the minute teaspoon of tartare sauce on the side of the plate for our scampi. Had to ask for more which was grudgingly bought by the waiter who brought our meals out. The waitress was brilliant that served us though.
