We decided to visit the Swan toward the end of November for lunch. It was not overly busy in mid afternoon but busy enough. The service was slow and not up to the standard of previous visits. I ordered a spicy crab starter and the others various dishes. Myself and my wife order Sunday roast (beef) and was asked for... More

Following friends review we decided to visit for a Sunday roast - we were not disappointed. We found the Inn to have undergone extensive upgrading and the interior is very comfortable, light & contemporary. It was very busy - which says a lot! The bar is situated in the middle and the dining areas are located around the bar -... More

We visited on a Wednesday evening and the Swan was packed. Luckily we got a table and s very nice meal. I had the pasta carbonara and my wife had the goats cheese parcel. Both were better than you'd expect from pub grub.

Had one of the sharing platters, and have to say I was stunned by the amount of food, and the quality of the food. I thought this was really good value for money. Staff were friendly and helpful, really nice ambience throughout. I will go back!

We met up with friends here on Friday night and enjoyed some very nice meals. Steaks were good, Thai Curry - excellent. Starters were good too - especially enjoyed the breads and dips and cheesy garlic bread. The soup was excellent too. Too full for sweets but finished off with coffees - all very enjoyable.

We were visiting the area and needed somewhere that could accommodate 12 people and they were happy to oblige. Lovely meal, we all enjoyed our food. Huge portions. Great atmosphere and friendly efficient staff. Would eat here again.

good service - my coke had hardly any syrup in in; I took it back and they were utterly polite about it and said they'd bring a replacement once they'd checked the syrup - which they did promptly. Haddock goujons to start - decent portion, excellent fish, hot and crisp straight from the fryer - nice side salad and piquant... More

Dinner was excellent and the service was first class. The staff were delightful. I can recommend the fish pie and the lemon sweet - can't remember its name!
