Still great food and drink venue in week. Weekends now neither as spoilt by moving food to upstairs. Can't get anywhere to sit for a drink and new tables crammed in near bar so can't even get round or near the bar. So so loud....More

Popped in on spec after briefly looking at the website. Very pleasantly surprised. Huge menu range - we opted for tapas and nachos. Good value (proper main courses two for £14 mid week) washed down with real ale.

This is the worse tapas I have ever been to. The meatballs and chicken were dry. The best part was the crusty bread. Definitely wouldn’t go again.

Brilliant selection of nachos and tapas with a very varied selection for vegetarians. Friendly atmosphere, pleasant staff and three cask beers including one from Thornbridge. Good find and one we'll be back to.

The food and service is wonderful. We went for the 10 tapas dishes for £30. The portion sizes are really good. The squid was absolutely beautiful. I would definitely recommend this place. It has a lovely atmosphere.

Hi, I contributed my opinions to trip advisor about the black swan. I'm unsure about the times that the Black Swan serves food until on an evening. My guess would be, that they would serve food until 9.00pm. You might want... More
