Second time getting the roast dinner - fantastic again - really like the way they bring out the 'spare' roast potatoes and Yorkshire puddings, rather than keeping them warm for the next set of customers. Great for big appetites and freshness...and the banoffee cheesecake was pretty awesome/decadent too.
Really welcoming, friendly service - a brilliant local pub - would thoroughly recommend

This is a lovely place to dine.

The menu has something for everyone and also a specials board.
Scallops were very fresh and perfectly cooked. The garlic chicken was melt in the mouth and so moist. The ham strumpet (ham hock deep fried in breadcrumbs) was a big hit, especially with my sister in law who is a chef and food lecturer.

Food was mediocre and very poor quality. Service was non existent as they were also hosting a wedding which took precedence over the normal diners. Waited over an hour and a quarter for food to arrive with no apology. Doubt I will be back.

Very disappointed as we booked our table 4weeks before hand & got put in what I can only described as the overspill room, cold in temperature and in ambience. We were very much looking forward to our first date night out, this will be remembered for all the wrong reasons!! We decided we couldn’t stay and left after being told we couldn’t be seated in the main restaurant and felt too uncomfortable in that room.

My team always comes back to the Swan;, good food selection and choice of quality of drinks. We like the space and ambudance, it's bright indoors. Could sit outdoors, but the strong wind could not be held by the lovely tents the restaurant has outside. They had to extend the parking due to popularity ppl driving singerly.
