    We had a lovely relaxed lunch, food was great place was spotless. Only downside you had to go to the bar to order your food & drinks, where it has always been table service all the times I've been before.

    Average and overpriced food. Poor service. Had to order at the bar (everyone else had table service?!) staff quite rude and always chatting to each other and not serving customers.

    Food was perfect, excellent value for money and very good portion sizes. Staff were welcoming and professional. Modern, very clean and trendy setting. Lots of parking. Lovely garden and plenty of seating inside & out. Absolutely go back with my family and keep it in mind for special occasions.

    Fantastic ambience decor and friendly staff! Food is always exceptional, not the cheapest but worth every penny and being a blue light holder makes it easier on the purse! Lovely outdoor seating and play area for the little ones too 🌞

    The food and service was good as always, although a lot of wasps around. There are ways of reducing them and I hope you address that as it affected the enjoyment of the lunch

    A really good restaurant, however on this occasion tired Sunday evening maybe was not the usual high service. Short staffed in the kitchen maybe and long waits is hard on service and on customers.

    Very long wait to be acknowledged at the (empty) bar when arriving, nobody came to take food or drink orders until we asked and then very long wait for food. Several main courses not available. However, good facilities for children with nice play area and some colouring/activities to occupy them during the 1 hour wait for food.

    Great food and lovely table in the conservatory at the front. Very busy Sunday, but the waitress prompted us to order before the large group of 20 ordered, which was great. Food was fresh and tasty (i had burger, husband had steak and another friend the Roast beef) portions just right. Pudding was delightful. ALL the staff were friendly, helpful and attentive

    Our first visit to The Swan, as only just moved to Worcester, and went on recommendations. Glad we chose it for Sunday lunch to celebrate our 40th anniversary, as it was a lovely experience. Friendly welcome when we arrived and a nice atmosphere so felt comfortable. Although very busy there were plenty of staff on , and all very friendly and efficient. Both our roast meals were very tasty as well as the deserts. Drinks kept well. We'd booked a table in the bar area which was nice and cosy. All the other areas looked nice as well. Will definitely visit again :)

    Plenty of parking and easy to locate. Everywhere clean. Would have given a 5 star rating but we both had the ham and eggs and the egg yolks were very hard. Apart from that all was lovely. It was noisy but there were a lot of people there.

    Never again! When I booked I was offered 8:15 or 9pm. I went for 8:15. However, when we arrived we were told rudely that we only had until 8:30 to order as the kitchen was closing. Then we had to order at the bar, no one was interested. The food was ok. Some ingredients were missing from the dishes with no explanation. At the end, we were again rushed. We had to pay now as they were cashing up and then whilst we were giving gifts to one member of the party they interrupted to rather rudely announce they were closing now and we had to leave ‘like now’. It was only 10:30pm. For this service we were charged £20 service charge. Will never book again, I felt embarrassed that my guests had been treated so badly.

    Wasn’t told that table service had been stopped so was waiting for ages before going to the bar to ask. Once ordered the food was delivered quite promptly but feel that portion sizes quite measly. Feel it’s a cheek too for a service charge to be added when no table service given!

    I have had the Ploughman’s for several years. Obviously the price has gone up but that’s fine, but it’s not the same as it used to be. I don’t like pork pie, which never used to be on the plate and the bread used to be chunks taken from a very fresh loaf, but now it is just ordinary sliced bread. The platter was always full but it contained different items. I.e. no scotch egg or pork pie.

    Its an ideal stop when travelling down from the north as it is only 1 mile from the M5; far better than any of the service stations. They were serving Sunday lunch / dinner all afternoon plus evening so its ideal for passing trade.

    Lovely pub, big issue with the bill! You must only have one total on there, very confusing and caused an issue as nearly underpaid you! Lucky we realised! No idea why you need two totals! You even said this happens all the time so fix it!

    The food was very disappointing. The battered fish and onions were very fatty and the minted peas very minty. Pizza base was hard. I thought the prices were very high for the quality of the food. Disappointed
