2nd visit to the Swan and no disappointment. Food was good quality and the staff made us feel at home. I would recommend the Swan, we booked to return with 9 of our family next month. Can't wait.

Stopped at The Swan for a meal for the first time having driven past it for many years. Really enjoyed the Thai fish cakes as a main course with delicious varied salad and home made coleslaw, followed by an unusual and tasty lemon and ginger creme brûlée. Friendly service, not too long to wait, a menu which was hard to... More

It is probably about 45 years since I was last in the Swan when I was a child and used to play with the landlords children as I lived in the village, so it was a pleasant surprise to go back for Sunday lunch with family to find that it is thriving and producing some very palatable food. We were... More

Our first visit to The Swan. A friendly welcome, even if our friends were delayed during a busy period. The food was good and definitely not of the microwave variety ! Fish cakes were excellent, fresh and beautifully cooked. This is a good family run establishment where service is professional yet relaxed. We have now booked for Christmas Day -... More

The waiter must of told the man (who I'm guessing is the manager) who came over to our table and said you didn't like the lasagne? My reply was I'm... More

first visit to this pub on 5th october i was very impressed with the quality of the meat in their pie and pastry was so light. The portions were very good and the flavour in all our dishes was lovely .It was very good value for the money as we chose from the lunch set menue.

My partner and I came here for dinner and it was absolutely beautiful. I had the Thai Fish Cakes to start and they tasted so fresh and perfectly dressed with sweet chilli sauce. For main course, we both chose the Malaysian Prawn Curry, such a large portion size! The prawns were well cooked in the subtle sauce and the Naan... More
