    The food was great but the waitress was stuck up, stroppy and rude. The pub is lovely. I think this is the first time we felt that a tip was not justified.

    Roast dinner was fine, beef and lamb a bit chewy, veg bowl a bit small for 4 but otherwise it was great not to cook. There we a few members of young staff that were just a bit arrogant. Such a shame but it really put us off. We called to say we were running late, they could have said no worries, as long as we get the table back by x…however it was a rude, huffy ‘well your eating into your own time’. After dinner we bought two cocktails for £18 at the bar (premixed with soda added) and when I asked if they could be brought to the table I got a ‘well we are really busy I’ll try to get someone’ I looked around and it was in between lunch and dinner and the place was half empty. We arent fussy, over demanding, always polite and friendly however we keep giving it another try as it’s walkable but unfortunately it remains a disappointment. Giving feedback as we’d love it to be better. Would go back for starters/sharers in the garden but not a meal. Garden was great for small kids.

    The food was OK but not great value. Our experience was spoilt by the dogs barking at the table next to us and the fact that the garden and play area were for exclusive use by a private party which would have been OK with us if we had been told at any point instead of coming to tell us when the kids were already playing outside...

    Booked a late Sunday lunch at The Swan. We had a great meal; Sunday roast for my partner and fish pie for me. Plenty of vegetables included and the cauliflower and broccoli gratin was scrumptious. We did have room for a dessert!!! I had ice cream and my partner had the caramel and hazelnut smash which he said was delicious but a bit too sweet for him. Will be back again!!!

    Polite welcome and drinks order taken. The menu felt limited, especially with a vegetarian in the group. The food order took an hour to arrive, but when it did, it was very tasty and portion size was fair. The desserts were nice, but the coffees arrived before the desserts. What detracts from the experience is that the venue place a 'discretionary' 10% service charge on your bill; when our bill arrived, there was an item we had not ordered and the 10% discretionary service charge added. This item was removed and new bill issued. When we eat out, we always tip, however, like the value etc to be our choice. We were asked at point of payment whether we were happy to pay the 10% discretionary charge - which we paid, but prefer deciding the tip value ourselves. Unsure whether we would/not recommend.

    Really enjoyed the atmosphere here, pudding was great, would come again to try other things on the menu - the Sunday roast could have been much better, potatoes undercooked and most of it quite cold unfortunately so wouldn't have that again.

    Unfortunately the food I received wasn’t what I had ordered, I was really clear about how I couldn’t have any red in my beef due to pregnancy and was told that was absolutely fine… but my request wasn’t met and the meat arrived very red & I then waited 10mins whilst the party ate their meals for another meal to come out. However, the staff were lovely and apologetic about this. We also thought the Sunday roast portion was very small for £17 per meal and the roast potatoes weren’t very nice. I would say it was worth £14 at the most! My husband had two pints of beer that were £10.80 so £5.40 each, we thought this was a little pricey too. We enjoyed our deserts the most, the cheesecake was lovely & the hazelnut crunch went down a treat. Such a shame, we had heard great things about the roast!

    Lovely food ans setting .. Great reception.. I ordered the chicken salad ex bacon so was treated to more yummi chicken and my request for extra olive oil was suitably answered 🥰 my guest enjoyed the duck wrap. The food was plentiful and tasty. I had forgotten that orders were meant to be placed at bar so when my guest joined me - we wondered when would someone get his drinks order.. it was only an hour later (as we were in a meeting) when we thought about ordering food we realise that its bar orders. Would be nice to be reminded of the protocols. (Had it not been my future boss I would have probably not minded lol)

    My family and I attended the swan in order to have dinner. The adults meals were good as always, however the childs burger for my 11 year old was below standard. The burger was hard and my daughter ended up leaving it. I didn’t bring this to the attention of staff as I believe the chef would of known this prior to sending it out. Very disappointed

    I requested a quiet area, so I was seated at the back, which was good. However that put us by the area the food comes out, and that was really noisy. Asked for no onion on my burger, but still had it. Added Cheddar to my burger but really struggled to see it, let alone taste it unfortunately.

    Having to pay upfront when sitting in the garden is a pain,I understand the reason why,but there are other ways of getting around it.Charging a service charge before you have received any service is a bit of a misnomer,it was not pointed out,but was readily removed when queried. Meal was very well presented(fish n chips) with minted mushy peas and tartare sauce. The four of us voted it 7.5/10. General ambience of the restaurant is very good with some interesting dining areas Overall we would recommend for a pleasant if not outstanding dining experience

    Sevice not very efficient waiting quite a while between starters and mains even though I had pre booked food choices beforehand. Main was quite cold and potatoes very hard (ordered chicken breast) my husbands main pork loin was also quite cold. I would have said something but we were all quite hungry after waiting an hour for the mains to arrive.
