We went for a meal to celebrate our wedding anniversary, and the room was very bright. You did ask why we were going, so didn’t feel unite right, need to turn the lighting down.

A lovely old pub with a trendy interior. The location is perfect for a long dog walk. The staff and manageress were very attentive and friendly. The food was good and realistically priced. We would definitely come again if we are in the area.

Everything was great until we were ordering coffee and had to rush because a wedding party were due in .
I don’t think it was particularly their fault as the wedding party arrived earlier than thought.
It did put a bit of a dampener on the overall experience though.
Will definitely go again.

Such a nice pub in a lovely, quiet location. The building and gardens are beautiful, and the food is really good. The sticky toffee pudding was impressive in presentation and in taste. Can't wait to go back!

Superb value and delicious food!

With the kids eat free half term deal, the 3 of us ate a very big and super tasty 2 courses each, with drinks, for a little over £40.

We love this place and haven't ever had a bad meal or bad service!

We've been to the Swan a few times and generally the food and service has been great. This time though we waited for what felt like hours to get each course, even though they were not busy. My elderly mum tried to use the salt grinder which fell apart scattering salt all over her food and the table. A waitress came over and said 'don't worry about clearing up the salt, we'll get it later' then walked away so we ate without a replacement salt cellar, my mum's starter ruined and the table covered with scattered salt. I made the mistake of ordering three 'small plates' which are actually tiny (two meatballs, or 3 small pieces of fried chicken and a ramekin of macaroni cheese), and was starving...generally disappointing. Sad because its been so good before, but not keen to repeat the experience.

Lovely pub, good food, a little different, which made our visit very enjoyable.
Shame about the roadworks, making it difficult to get to. Totally not the pubs fault, just typical planning with council roadworks

Great Sunday lunch with family. Food was amazing and service from the waitresses was great. Only knocked a star off as food took quite a while to come out. But again it was a busy Sunday lunch service so can't be overly harsh! Will definitely come back again.

The food really let the evening down. Just very, very basic with some odd choices. Sent back a dessert which was just awful - no idea why a take on an Eton mess would be served in a salty baked tortilla? No meringue & runny, tinned Pineapple. Not good.

Lovely location, lovely waitresses but awful food. Very sad looking starters with no taste. Main course was even worse with dry meat, hard potatoes and vegetables and swimming in watery tasteless gravy. We told the waitress that we were unhappy and she spoke to the manager, and after a couple of conversations we weren’t charged for the food. At no point did the manager bother to come out to speak to us, so the poor waitress had to go back and forth! A real shame as it was a very special occasion for us as we all came away hungry! We won’t be returning

I've been to The Swan and Braybrooke before but never sat in the garden room. It was lovely - great ambience, light and airy with very pleasant views over the courtyard garden. Staff were friendly, efficient and engaging. We had the tapas for everyone to share which was excellent. We weren't rushed over our meal and the noise levels meant that, as friends who'd not been able to see each other for some considerable time, we were able to have a good catch up without having to shout.

It's the first time I've visited since the new management took over and I'd definitely recommend to others.

We were visiting the area and booked the swan not knowing anything about it and it was probably the best Sunday lunch we have had out! The decor inside is stylish, staff most helpful and food to die for! Roast beef was cooked perfectly! Thank you so much we will be back
