We are here in the summer and had an excellent meal, fresh, well presented and prepared. Based on this we returned with family for a lunchtime snack. We ordered a sharing platter and some other little bites. It too a long while to arrive and was extremely greasy and was meagre in size. We were disappointed mostly because of how... More

We ate here on the 19th December, 1st visit and food was very good, service was OK and staff were friendly. Food was served very hot and fresh and was good value for money. Would visit again when in the area. You won't be disappointed as good value, good choice of menu, food served hot, OK service.

I was very dubious about booking here as we'd had a dreadful experience a few years ago but were aware new management had since taken over. We booked for a party of 17 for Xmas lunch last Friday. The table was nicely decorated with good quality crackers and the starters arrived pronto. The landlady was very attentive, checking everything was... More

8 persons attended, 3 meals were satisfactory within the quoted menu. However 5 meals were totally unsatisfactory. Why? The ordered and quoted crayfish starters had never seen a crayfish unless they looked like prawns. Also, the very unsatisfactory meals were of Slow Cooked Ducks Breast. A car tyre would best describe the quality of the items served together with a... More

Firstly please accept our apologies for you Christmas meals, but as stated at the time the Duck is cooked medium rare, and we were more than happy to cook it further for you which we did, and we explained that the more its cooked the tougher it would be. Again I would like to apologise on behalf of the Swan... More

..... and got what we paid for. Now this sounds like a very small annoyance at best but, on reading the many other negative reviews on this pub, certainly seems to point to a larger problem. What's the annoyance? On ordering two pints and being served and paying, the change was slapped down on the bar where we had to... More

I have been here several times and I have enjoyed the food. The sharing platters are good starters and one sharing platter will very happily feed 4 grown ups as a started. We didn't wait long for mains and it was a fairly busy evening too. The waitress was really lovely and honest about the menu. The pinot Grigio Rose... More
