Top class as always, brand new menu and all our food was perfect. Think the portion sizes have shrunk but will not mark this place down for that - probably did me good!

Lovely pub but we had to wait over an hour for the main course. The Thai Vegetable Burger was overcooked and rock hard. The meat balls were lacking in sauce and distinctly average. The staff were professional but not friendly. Will not be rushing back.

Food was good with wide selection of options. Service was super friendly and efficient although puds took a while to arrive, and the coffee was already gone.

It was a little noisy as there was a party on another table, but not too bad.

Booked a table for our anniversary. Lovely warm greeting, quiet table at the side of the restaurant area, gently attentive service, and the waiting staff had a nice sense of humour, and engaged with us very 'easily'. Food was great, and pricing was appropriate - not cheap, but the food deserved to command a good price.

The Swan at Braybrooke was very good other than the some of our party thought the number of slices of beef on the Sunday Lunch was very minimal (only 1 small slice) and the amount of custard with the crumble needed several top ups.

Other than that very good.

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.

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!
