Google Maps street view (June 2016) shows that The White Swan has had a top-to-bottom makeover. There is ample parking on a wide service road. It has a small friendly bar and beyond that a pleasant restaurant. My wife and I were made very welcome; the menu offered a good choice of dishes and the 'Sunday Roasts' were excellent. We... More

We ordered the rib-eye steak and a vegetarian roast dinner, and both had fantastic rice pudding. Excellent meals were well presented and delicious. Helpful service and would highly recommend.

We were staying nearby at Conceige Camping and popped in here for a quick late lunch as dog friendly. A good lunchtime menu, and food was all very nice, and friendly staff. Easy to find by Bosham roundabout with plenty of parking down a side road.

Visited The White Swan for the inaugural "Chilli Cook Off" on Sat 26th Nov. What an amazing event several entries of Chilli related meals cooked by the locals resulting in a fiery but brilliant evening.Lots of laughs, great food, and some new friends. This was one of the many imaginative events run by Matt and the team. Worth checking out... More

I've been for food before but this time my other half and I stopped by for a few drinks. We had only actually intended to stay for one but we got sucked in when one of the comfy sofas became free. I'm a gin enthusiast so I was pleased to see a wide offering of gin behind the bar and... More

This is a nice place to stop for a late afternoon drink as I did. There was a friendly welcome and the real ale was good. There was a TV to watch the latest news but it wasn't intrusive and didn't spoil the atmosphere. It is located next to Bosham Roundabout and good for me just yards from the bus... More

Visited this pub whilst staying at Conceirge Camping. Whilst staying with Conceirge Camping you can obtain 10% discount off of your food bill. Service was great, young lady serving us noticed I was cold so turned up the fire which was well observed. Mushroom soup for starter with olive bread. A little disappointed as no steak or gammon on the... More

Had lunch here yesterday. Roast beef was excellent however you need to diet for a week beforehand as the portions are so big. Was very reasonably priced too. Only complaint was that the place was virtually empty with no atmosphere. This is surprising and a great shame as its so good
