We couldn't believe how quiet this place was on a Saturday night. The restaurant was almost empty, we couldn't figure out why. The staff were attentive, the food was excellent and there was a good choice on the menu and specials board.

We only ate at the Swan once, it would have been twice but they were not serving food one evening because of refurbishment. The food and service was good, with a good selection of ales.

A good lunch all round and great value. The kids food is tasty and they also get a free bowl of ice cream. We had the ham, egg and chips which was yummy.

A proper country pub in the heart of Sturminster Newton. Comfortable, well managed and calm ambience within. Excellent service: notably a young gentlemen called "Taz", who competently and ably conducted his work with utmost professionalism. Food was prompt, well presented and very tasty. Highly impressed.

It's no surprise to see a plethora of wonderful reviews since new landlord and landlady took over. I'd been to the Swan for food just over a year ago, and was somewhat disappointed... however in recent months, under new management, food, service and general atmosphere...More
