Thank you for your comments. I'm disappointed to read that the food and service were not up to our usual standard. I have passed your points on to the team and the Korma dish will be adjusted accordingly.

The Swan Hotel is very interesting to visit. It has bars for a quiet drink before a meal and the restaurant is very pleasant. A varied menu with good food served by friendly staff.
