Sadly the service here has deteriorated. The server was rude and abrupt. This was a favourite, but no more. Food is very good, service is awful!

On arrival I was worried as no staff to be seen anywhere. But finally came out. Offered a table and ordered two roasts which were very good. Also ordered sticky toffee pudding and was just as good. Waitresses were friendly and helpful. Would go again

Third time of visiting this year. Each time we visited has got progressively worse. The food has always been brilliant. It's just the staff have been uncooperative

I just need to say I have just had the most disappointing meal I've had for a long time the food was pre ordered so that could have been the problem. The roast potatoes were cold, the belly pork was horrible with crackling that didn't crackle, it was soft The gammon was over cooked, I did complain but to no... More

Having not visited The Swan for several years I returned last night and was happy to find a reasonably priced varied menu, a warm welcome and relaxing atmosphere. I enjoyed some delicious duck and my boyfriend had gammon which he really enjoyed. We both tried the chocolate brownie which was scrumptious, covered in warm chocolate sauce and served with ice...

I visited with my daughter in law and 11 month old granddaughter. Clean high chairs were available and we received a warm welcome from the waiting staff. We could sit where we liked and were not pushed into a dingy corner just because we had a baby & pushchair. Service was prompt and attentive. The food was good. I look... More

Second time I've been here. Saturday night. Not terribly busy, loads of parking. You wouldn't need to book. Pleasant out in the sticks feel to it. Service not especially memorable but polite and competent. Cute waitresses, always a bonus. Steak was melt in the mouth with homemade nice tasting sauce. Starter of black pudding scotch egg was very tasty but... More

A bit of a wait to get to our table, but the table was well laid out. The waiting staff kept visiting our table regularly to take our orders. The waiting time for our drinks and food was minimal. Both the starter (whitebait) and the main course (sea bass with rice and vegetables) were superb. The cost of the meal... More
