We visited The Swan yesterday evening (busy Saturday night) with 2 adults and 4 children (always a bit of a challenge!)
We’d all had a week off for the school holidays and wanted to end with something nice as a family before we all head back to work or school next week.
We weren’t disappointed! The restaurant has been done out really nicely and is far enough away from the bar that you can still mix locals who are drinking and want to make the most of their Saturday night with people who want to enjoy a meal.
The children had pizza (not just your average frozen type - good quality with fresh salad and chunky chips) and the adults had the seafood platter from the specials board which was amazing!! Finished off with some lovely ice cream for the children (which came standard as part of their reasonably priced meal) and a beautifully presented G & T for me!
The service was great and lots of people around us in the restaurant were also commenting on how much they had enjoyed their meal.
We will definitely be going again (with and without the children!) and would recommend others to do the same.
Thank you for a lovely evening.

Thank Claudie999

My wife and I popped in on a busy Saturday lunchtime and ordered a ‘Little Man Burger’ each. The burgers are all home made and did not disappoint. They certainly don’t cheat on the extras (cheese, mushrooms, gherkins and Onion Rings) either and the chips and side salad are both plentiful and extremely tasty too.

Washed down with a pint of Guinness, this was a superbly tasty meal.

Having also tried the Scampi, Liver and Onions and (sublime) Fillet Steak, and the fact that we have never had a bad meal here in many visits, we can both heartily recommend The Swan Inn for a superb meal whatever the occasion.

Sunday lunch at the Swan was a pleasurable experience, we opted for the two course deal, we both had roast beef with all the trimmings, this was beautifully presented, tasted delicious, and just as important, was served piping hot. The staff are cheerful, and nothing is too much trouble.

We chose different desserts, I had banoffee pie and my partner had rhubarb crumble, again beautifully presented, and tasted scrummy. Will definitely be visiting again for the Sunday lunch. We have also dined in the evening at the Swan and it was equally as good on each visit.

My wife and I dropped in for Sunday Lunch. Very quiet at 1pm, friendly staff. Beer OK if you like Hall & Woodhouse.
Both had roasts (beef or lamb)- catering style meat of the "boil in a bag" type" large, rather pale roast potatoes and OK veg covered in standard brown liquid. The sort of mediocre fare served in thousands of pubs.
Puddings were nice. Overall, reasonable value at £12 for 2 courses.
