Tuesday lunchtime meet-up with old friends here was most enjoyable. Found this pub by chance as it was exactly half-way between us (Worcester and Tetbury). We had various meals from the lunchtime menu, main menu and even the specials board. All were well presented and tasted great. Staff were really friendly and attentive. Real ale sampled for the first time... More

Call in at about 8pm on a Saturday evening and had a choice of several tables, the waitress was polite and quickly took our drinks order. When she returned with the drinks we ordered our food, some 40 minutes later the food arrived, to say it was average is generous, we had both ordered steak burger with all the trimmings,... More

This pub a few miles out of Cheltenham on the Tewkesbury Road is a very pleasant venue for a meal and a drink. The menu is quite varied and there are 'Special' evenings featuring meal deals. The bar is comprehensive as is the wine list. The staff were friendly and helpful. I did have to wait a little for my... More

Went with family for my 60th birthday. Food was lovely, service was great, especially patient with my elderly mother-in-law who gets confused. I would highly recommend and will return.

I left a review of the Swan about 18 months ago where I was disappointed by the long delays between courses . We returned today and we were very pleased with the friendly, prompt and efficient service. The food has always been of high standard and it was only the slow service that let it down . Now that this... More

Sadly the service here has deteriorated. The server was rude and abrupt. This was a favourite, but no more. Food is very good, service is awful!

On arrival I was worried as no staff to be seen anywhere. But finally came out. Offered a table and ordered two roasts which were very good. Also ordered sticky toffee pudding and was just as good. Waitresses were friendly and helpful. Would go again

I just need to say I have just had the most disappointing meal I've had for a long time the food was pre ordered so that could have been the problem. The roast potatoes were cold, the belly pork was horrible with crackling that didn't crackle, it was soft The gammon was over cooked, I did complain but to no... More
