Ate here on Sunday, not exactly cheap but food was ok. Hubby enjoyed the Sunday Dinner and Chicken Wings starter, I had Ciabatta with Beef and Horseradish and paid £1.00 extra for chips which were nice. It's good that sauce comes in a pot on the side so you can put your own on. Really is in need of an...

Friendly helpful staff, our beloved dog able to join us in the pub and was spoilt by staff. Food all homemade and fresh, the fish and chips was beautiful and I would recommend. We will be returning very soon as a family!

And so. We went to the Swan expecting to be laughed out of town because it was the 14th but no. They were busy-they were!-but of course they could find us a table. We were looked after beautifully. The food was glorious. We were loved.

Been here a few times in the last 3 months . Great selection of beers ( highly recommend shipyard pale ale) . I've tried most things on the menu and the burgers are a clear winner . Home made chips and onion rings are always a bonus . Brilliant location in the summer months

The sign said "a range of real ales". There was one. We ordered off the menu a Scotch egg, a pork pie with piccallilli and a bowl of French fries. (There was a choice of different chips!) There were no Scotch eggs to be had. The pork pie came hot(?) and with sweet pickle and the fries were forgotten. When...

On Friday 13th January we went to the Swan taphouse, with a groupon voucher for 2. We arrived to a really cold reception area, and it was worse when we got into the so called dining room. Some of the chairs you would not put in the garden, and one table was made of planks of wood inset into a...

We had gone to see the famous iron bridge built by Telford in the 1790s and to meet up with long lost friend and his son and wanted somewhere to eat. We looked in a couple of pubs along the main road but they were always basic- wooden floors and tables with no tablecloths.. They obviously cater for walkers in...
