    Unfortunately it took 40 minutes to receive our drinks, starter came out before the drinks. Lady serving us was great and took the drinks of the bill. The guy behind the bar was very unsympathetic with his attitude. Food was great and enjoyed our meal.

    From the moment we walked in the door to the staff kindly letting us wait until our taxi arrived, the evening was fantastic. The warm welcome from the barman, swiftly followed by a very knowledgable and engaging waiter, I'd have recommended it for that alone. But then the food... Oh my. For a 'gastro pub', the menu was excellent. Shying away from the usual staples, and giving every dish a special twist (and seasonal ingredients), I could not fault any of the dishes we had. And the wine was very good also - with a lovely story behind it, where the owners/GM's personally visited the vineyards in South Africa, and put something back into the local workers by allowing them to grow their own produce in the soil during the fallow periods. A wonderful business ethic, and outstanding gastronomic experience.

    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

    The Swan SalfordResponded on September 11, 2021

    What a lovely review, thank you Simon! We are so pleased you enjoyed your visit and all aspects had been great. We are pleased our special touch with the yorkshires and potatoes had made the visit even better! We can't wait for your next visit.

    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.
