    Visiting the Swan again after several years did not disappoint. Food excellent and comfortable table helped to overcome the raucous sounds from six young ladies at a nearby table. Overall excellent and will go again.

    The vegetables had obviously been sitting there for a while as they were hard. We waited a long time for our order to be taken and then were told they had no beef so had to think again. The waitress was rude and wouldn't wait. When we went to pay she walked off and left us waiting for someone else because I had complained.

    Expensive for very average food. Paid £18 for a burger with cheese and bacon with fries. It was ok, nowhere near as good as specialised burger places. The food also took a long time (45 minutes for pizzas and burgers) and the restaurant was virtually empty. It was nice to have a playground for the little one

    Food was nice but a little bit bland, I had a chicken burger and it could of done with some seasoning. My husband had fish and chips which he said was nice but again was bland. It took a while to be served and for food to come but the pub did seem busy. We also had to go to the bar to pay as when we finally got the bill no one actually came to take payment. We‘ve been to The Swan before when they had the old menu and the food/service was very good. Would come again but would hope that the service and food was improved!

    My daughter was treating us. She arrived before us and you put us near the toilets which was not appreciated. You moved us to the lozia but this was not ideal because of an open door. It was great that you offered the same menu all afternoon and the selection and food was good. The car park was almost full and what happens then?

    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)
