The looks nice inside and out. There could probably be a larger car park. I booked the table in the morning and I found a voucher to use which I could use the same day for a free dessert (many places send them within 24hrs- boo) I ordered a starter but this never turned up. My main arrived with chips... More

Visited here for an evening meal and breakfast while staying at a nearby hotel. Food was amazing and beautifully cooked! The price range was good for a varied budget and the staff were very helpful and friendly. Atmosphere was busy but chilled, a good place to relax with a drink and some good food! Overall 10+ for meals, very happy... More

I absolutely love this restaurant. The food is always fantastic and the staff are always fabulous. I love the fact that they have such a variety of options. Even the fussiest of waters would find it difficult not to find something they like.

Lovely pub with friendly staff sadly the management let the place down. We have visited the pub on many occasions and they have always been happy to accept tesco rewards vouchers on set menu's, and while we understand in the terms and conditions they aren't obliged to do so....they have always been relaxed about this. Upon our visit we informed... More

Had a get together with some friends hadn't seen in a while. Service was pretty good but the food was a let down. Came out a bit cold and felt was too pricey for what it was

Very disappointed. ...waited to be seated at a table 10 minutes after booked time...which can sometimes be understandable but not when the table you're seated at is empty when you arrive. Not enough Sunday roasts available. ..booking was 5. 15 pm so not that late....and no roast potatoes . 2 steak meals ordered both returned as chips were cold.

Very quick and attentive service. Food was really good. We hadn't booked a table but we were accommodated with no wait (we arrived early afternoon). Restaurant got really busy as time went on overall a lovely atmosphere. I would recommend.

We used to go regularly to The Swan, however stopped several years ago after poor experiences. By chance, we called in a couple of months ago. We were delighted to see the big improvement since our last visit. We have since been back for a family meal. It was high quality food, served in a friendly, efficient way. I have... More

Our second New Years Eve at the Swan. Not as good as last year. Too many children who were too noisy. Might be an idea to have families in one room or have children leave at a set time. Also seemed to have crammed more people in. Last year seemed to run much more smoothly and the food was better... More
