    The only reason food didn’t get full marks is because the we both had the plated mixed meat Sunday lunch and the lamb was very fatty and we couldn’t cut it. The rest was superb and were definitely be coming back.

    A cracking roast dinner , beautifully cooked and a very tasty gravy. Highly recommended. Dessert was a bit of a let down with one Dessert making it 15min later than the other 3. The cookie dough was floury and mushy , not worth the wait. The team were apologetic both for the delay and said info about Dessert would be relayed to the chef. Overall a good experience and will return😊

    Steak meal over priced at £20 for 8oz rump,a few chips and half dozen vine tomatoes. 10% service charge and incorrect change given if you pay cash as it was rounded up to the pound

    We arrived 7pm got drinks and menus. The waiter came 15 minutes later to take orders, three starters four mains. Queried on scallop serving reassured a good portion. 8pm no food. Chased waiter. Apologies starters will be FOC. Scallops small and only two on the plate. An embarrassment to be served by any decent restaurants. 8.25pm chased waiter for mains they arrive. All looks good but strange chorizo sauce on sea bass no veg or rice or accompaniment. Finally got the bill not expensive because due to poor service got reductions .First time in ages thought to give it a try will not go again

    As always the Swan lived up to our expectations. The staff are friendly and helpful without being intrusive, the service was impeccable and the food was tasty and beautifully presented. We had omelettes and eggs Benedict, which were the perfect portion size and just lovely. Will certainly be going again for sure.

    Lovely food - reliably good every time we visit, and always quick to the table after order placed. Good quality, generous portion, and very tasty. Service could feel a little more attentive - definitely felt like we were forgotten! No one came to check if needed more drinks; had to go to the bar to ask for the bill after waiting for 15 mins for member to walk by; bill didn’t come for 10 mins so went to bar to pay and found all 3 staff stood there talking.

    Another great Sunday lunch at The Swan! We had a lovely family birthday celebration - food and service was great and not too rushed. We all cleared our plates yet again. Had fab deserts too! One of our favourite Sunday haunts ❤️

    The food was delicious, although I would have expected the club sandwich to come on toasted bread (it did not state this on the menu however, it's simply my experience of this item in other places.). Service was fine and the coffee was excellent.

    Service was extremely slow - for example, our order was not taken for over 40 minutes after we arrived, despite the restaurant not seeming especially busy. One main meal was not as ordered, so further wait endured. This wasn't really satisfactorily resolved either, I.e. not a particularly sincere apology or anything else to compensate offered. Food was very good, though.

    The food in this restaurant has always been excellent. We only wanted a light lunch and my sister decided on the Avocado with Poached Egg but no Sriracha sauce as she can’t take spicy foods, the staff had no problem in putting this request through to the kitchen and she was delighted when her dish arrived with two perfectly poached eggs. I am a little disappointed that the Pate is no longer on the Lunchtime Menu, however I had the Leek & Potato Soup which was delicious. Finally the staff are always friendly and helpful.

    We weren't told you had to order at the bar so sat for quite a while waiting. Finally flagged a staff member to be told we needed to go to the bar to order. We were a party of 8 with 4 children. Not easy to remember everyone's order when this many people!! Most staff were friendly but one waitress was very short with us as if we were an inconvenience to her for asking for a drink that was forgotten. It was very busy for a Monday lunch time and staff seemed very busy. Would recommend as food was pretty good but service let it down yesterday.

    Lovely to see this favourite of ours busy and bustling on a Monday lunchtime! We have been eating here en route to our annual Center parcs trip for the last ten years and it just gets better. Food quality is excellent, fresh ingredients and a varied menu at reasonable prices. The staff are exceptional- friendly and efficient. Highly recommend a visit especially the ham eggs and tiger crusty bread- delicious cooked to perfection.

    Arrived to be told 4 items were not on menu. Took ages for drinks to be ordered- food took ages (35 min) and burgers were charred (lamb and beef). Weren’t offered further drinks went to bar was told someone would come to the table. Waited with empty glasses. Desert seemed to take a while which was odd as it was icecream and sorbet. Not overly impressed overall. In addition there was a very loud party shrieking most of the time we were there.

    The service was poor and very slow. We were told we had only two hours to eat and then the service was so slow that we struggled to do it. The food was good but we were sitting next to a large group of noisy people.

    I booked a table here for a reunion with some friends. We were sat in the conservatory area during the month of February and there was a horrible draft where I was sat. One of the party was vegetarian and the selection available to them was awful. Either a ‘burger’ consisting of a mushroom with cheese (not my definition of burger) or a pizza. More is expected in this day and age where many people are either vegetarian or vegan. The selection for a vegan was either a pizza or nothing. Again, not acceptable. On a positive the service was good and what food we did have was okay. Puddings were delicious. Conservatory acoustics were loud so it meant we had to shout to hear each other. All in all I would choose to dine elsewhere next time around.

    We visited as a group of 7. We had a warm welcome from an attentive member of staff. We visited on an evening where pizzas were half price…..excellent value for money. The atmosphere was ‘buzzy’ but not too loud. Pizzas that were not finished were taken home in an individual box….a lovely night xx

    Food was good whereas last visit was excellent. My family were particularly looking forward to the Yorkshire puddings where we’re outstaying before but they had run out. Hot drink wasn’t very hot but this was taken off the bill. An enjoyable meal and hopefully fully back to its best next time.

    Met friends for a late Sunday lunch and was very pleased with the food and service. That said having left it so late in the day for food - 5pm, somethings on the menu were not available but that's understandable and was not a problem for us.

    Staff are welcoming friendly and organised. Range of food is good and prices are reasonable. The offer of half-price pizzas on our night was a pleasant surprise. It can get busy so noise levels are variable and it depends where your table is. We enjoyed a lovely meal and would happily recommend the Swan.
