Excellent Sunday lunch - tasty and generous portions
Good value.

Service a little slow but the ambience and the company made up for this. The restaurant was very busy.

Really helpful front of house who accommodated our request for an additional person with a smile

Excellent service. Delightful staff. The Camembert sharer starter was the best we’ve ever had. Our burgers were over cooked but were replaced efficiently with perfect ones, with no problem. Well done!

Truly impressed with the Swan Inn. Knowledgeable, attentive staff (thank you Lucy!). Food was excellent and we sampled a wide range of the menu between the 4 of us. Crab / Pulled Pork / Steak / Pie / Fish / Burger. Even with a busy Saturday evening the food arrived hot and quickly. By focussing their efforts on a limited dinner menu they are obviously able to make things fresh each day. Very reasonably priced as well, would definitely visit again.

We went just as beer fest was ending so the scaffolding took away a bit from nice ambiance. Staff were friendly efficient and very welcoming. We had a dog which was fine.
We had delicious crab starter and really fresh lemon sole beautifully cooked.

Appropriately attentive waitresses. Good information given when asked.
Meals enjoyed by the whole party.

Too improve, main courses could have included some low saturated fat options easily without lowering food standard. Deserts too could have had some low fat options such as fruit with fat free Greek yogurt, sorbet. I have a raised cholesterol but I still want to enjoy eating out!

Lovely place the cheese salad was delicious and worth the money the atmosphere was good and the staff were very friendly and helpful. A restaurant I will definitely be going back to for more dishes or even just a drink if passing.

Good value for money. Excellent service and a very nice ambiance in the room. The evening menu could be a little better as the choice is not as good as it was.

It's been some months since my last visit, so now with new management I have dined there again. I was most impressed with the selection of meals and the service could not be faulted.
