We had a reasonable quality lunch at slightly above average prices. However, there is probably a little bit of a premium as a result of its New Forest location. The main problem was sshow very long it took the food to arrive,

The Swan has a lovely feel to it even a log fire to warm you on a cold winters night however you need deep pockets for a drink even a soft one check the price list before you part with your hard earned cash, you might prefer somewhere else. The food is also a little on the expensive side and... More

To celebrate my dad's 80th Birthday, 27 of us (including 2 babies) met for Sunday lunch at The Swan. When we arrived the area set aside for us had been decorated with fairy lights and silver candleabras on every table. The log fires made the pub lovely and cosy and the staff were very welcoming. We had pre-ordered our meals... More

Beautiful and cosy place. We went for a meal and I highly recommend the wild boar burguer. We also enjoyed a good local beer. The service was excellent (helpful and friendly)

Service very slow. No quality to the food. Will avoid on future holidays. Good point is that dogs are allowed.

We just happened to be passing as it opened today. They had a couple of free tables but the place filled up quickly. My wife had the pie of the day and I had the roast pork. Both were very good. The service was attentive and they offered us extra vegetables and gravy. We were too full for pudding and... More

We had a fabulous Sunday roast on 30 October. The portion size was very generous with lots of different vegetables. The meat was very tender and the meal was topped with a large Yorkshire pud.....perfect ! Reasonably priced too.

There is a lot appealing about The Swan, its an attractive pub in a lovely location. The staff are friendly and the parking, garden and spacious seating are great. The food is cooked to order and delicious, however it does take ages it is pricey and the core menu is limited; I wanted a steak but with only a £20... More

Had a nice family lunch at The Swan Inn. Food was good, but the service was slow, even though it was not busy. Have been before, and it was a bit slow then too. Fine if you're out for a lazy afternoon, but not ideal with young kids! Nice atmosphere with log fires and a good playground for the kids.
