Brilliant food, no issue here. Sadly met by long waits for seating and food and rudeness from bar staff. The waitress who served our table however incredibly friendly and very professional.

Avoid if you want to eat! The staff were rude when we arrived telling us that they were struggling with staff and our booking was useless. I understand staffing issue but manners cost nothing.

The staff here were clearly under immense pressure from increased tourist activity, it was obvious they were exceptionally busy. They didn't seem overly welcoming at the start but that didn't last long, they were all very lovely. We did have a bit of a wait after we ordered. However, the staff did warn us of the waiting time so we were prepared for it, and the food was WELL worth the wait. It is no wonder they are so busy!

Unfortunately the food and Service wasn’t up to its usual standards, resulting in us seating at 7.15 having to wait 45 minutes for the food (A salad nachos chips garlic bread crabcakes ) The food wasn’t good , my duck salad was basically all carrots and no salad , Cold and not spiriting for £11.50
The crab cakes where overcooked, dry and somehow reached us cold? We didn’t eat the meal and was refunded but due to the time ended up not being able to eat anywhere else. A massive disappointment , what should’ve been a nice girly evening with good food and company ended up three very hungry ladies going home. Not what we had planned.
I felt when the management asked me what was actually wrong with the food it was slightly confrontational but one side explained what was wrong she happily took it away and refunded us apologising.

I would go back and try the food again as I have had a lovely meal prior to this. but I wasn’t happy with the service and food we had this time.

As a family we are quite fussy where we eat, and this restaurant was absolutely perfect.
A great menu, great food and fast service.
There have been a few reviews that say payment needs to be made before the food arrives, this is only because they have had people eat and leave without paying for the food!
Would definitely recommend having a meal here.

Slow service
Took over 20 minutes to place an order and then additional 40 minutes to wait for main courses even though they appeared not too busy

Quality of food was average and due to length of waiting we didn’t wait for desserts

Attentive service. They found us a table inside when we had booked outside which was good. Food came promptly but a bit bland for us. Surprised to find you pay straight after ordering without even seeing / tasting your food. Visit was ok

We really enjoyed our evening meal at the Swan. Friendly, attentive service, the food was really good quality pub food with generous portions. Decent menu with plenty of options, including the children’s menu. Dining area was nicely decorated and felt spacious. We couldn’t fault it, great value.

Excellent food at a very fair price, yet severely lacking in service. We were seated, understanding the lack of staff at the time, were not given menus and then asked “well what do you normally like?”, which is a preposterously idiotic question to ask, after we requested the menus he then added “well you’re here a bit late”. Overall id consider recommending if the member of staff who was dealing with us had an evening with the queen to sort out his boisterously aggressive attitude.

There had been about 1hr wait on food. I felt sorry for our waitress as she was rushed off her feet but she provided us a great service. Would of been nice for some extra bar nibbles to help us whilst we waited for food, would of booked somewhere else but a lot of places were fully booked. Food was ok nothing to shout about just tasted like cheap pub food. Can’t fault the waiting staff at all I feel as though Covid has got staff levels

A 😀& warm welcome and immediately taken to our Clean reserved table,given time to settle swiftly followed by “Amber”taking our orders for Food/Drinks,which arrived at table drinks first swiftly followed by our meals which were hot & cooked to our individual requirements & well presented along with a range of condiments offered. After 5 minutes a “lady in a pink dress!” Enquired as to our meal satisfaction (a unanimous 👍Yes).
As “The Swan” was very busy (Peak Season) the Swan Team deserve our Every Praise for making our “Excellent Lunch” so enjoyable.

Slightly mixed experience; kept waiting at the door and ignored by the general waiting staff until the team leader was free. Outdoor table despite the restaurant being empty, which was OK temperature wise but the courtyard is used a lot by smokers from inside. Music was inappropriate for the atmosphere - both volume and the fact that explicit material was relayed over the the head of 7 year old...not impressed and staff seemed oblivious to what was being played. Appetisers were really good - chorizo and halloumi chunks delicious. Main courses less so - steaks were expensive and overly chewy; chips/sides cold very quickly and there was far too much on the plate - lacked refinement.

gutted booked a table for my birthday with my daughter only to be told they stop serving food at 2pm, our table was booked for 3pm wen she finished work. no where on the online booking did it say they stop serving. wen we arrived n told the staff we had a table book all we got was a lady saying there's no food. so gutted maybe this could be more clearer on the website.

Plenty of food for your money, the rib-eye steak and the mixed grill were bland but not unpleasant, the curry and lamb flatbreads were tasty. The service was quite slow considering it wasn’t busy, a round of drinks were sat on the bar for 15 minutes before being served.
