Well decorated and a pleasant atmosphere but unfortunately it cannot make up it's mind whether it is a pub or a restaurant. Reasonably priced for a meal but expensive for a pub.

We had dinner which was ok but very small portions for the price ,the downside was my dessert which was supposed to have been white chocolate and raspberry burnt cream but turned out to be something like watered down ambrosia custard with brûlée style topping no evidence of white chocolate or raspberries won't go again

Whenever you want to go for delicious fish'n'chips you should visit the Swan. Hand battered haddock fillet with home made chips and crushed peas. Big variety of local and international beers. Recommendable gastropub!

Very nice atmosphere and friendly staff. We all ordered fish and chips and we all agreed it was the best fish and chips we have ever had. I would go back again if ever in Farnborough again.

The menu is modern and might not suit customers who are not adventurous in their tastes. However, the food is good and the unhurried service left us time to savour one of the four guest beers (chosen after expert advice from one of the waiters) before eating. The wine list caters for all tastes and our New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc... More

There's not much in the way of choice in Farnborough for drinking or eating - so my partner and I were really pleased when the Swan reopened last year. We go quite often for food and it's where we take people when they come to visit. We've never been disappointed by the food (intact the desserts are amazing) and it's... More

Mu husband and I dropped into The Swan without booking as we only live a five minute walk away. Being seated wasn't a problem. We ordered the Pinot Noir which was lovely. I had the battered Haddock with chips, mushy peas and tartare sauce. The fish was beautifully cooked, lovely and flaky with a light, delicate batter. The mushy peas... More

have popped in here a few times for a quick lunch and drink (or two), food is always lovely and not too expensive. The outside area is quieter than you expect with the Airport being so close, yes obviously when a plane goes over its noisy, but we were expecting it to be louder (pleasantly surprised)
