I made reservations for my husband, daughter, brother and myself. We were seated promptly after our arrival. We’ve eaten here before, but had never been seated in the upstairs portion. This time we were lucky enough to get the small private room above the porch with a fantastic view of the light snow falling on Main Street and the Sorg Opera House! Great food in a warm and inviting tavern that is part of Middletown’s Renaissance. Our server, Taylor, did a great job checking on our needs as we lingered and caught up with family 🥰

The Swire Inn is a quaint little pub that serves awesome food. We have eaten there twice, just in the past week. My compliments to the Chef for the home cooked food. We have recommended to friends and family that they need to check it out.

Love the historic nature and ambience of this building. We were there on a particularly busy night otherwise I suspect I would have rated the service five instead of four. Can’t wait to go back.

Nice cozy restaurant i Middletown, located directly across the street from the Sorg Opera house. The menu was very varied, with a chef's choice of the day, which happened to be a bacon wrapped meatloaf dinner. I did not order that, but wished that I had when I saw plates being served to other diners. I enjoyed the fish and chips dinner, while my friend had a cauliflower crust pizza. She needed to order a sour cream accompaniment, as it was a little dry. The tables were nicely arranged as to social distance from the other diners. The waitress was excellent! I willbe back!

I had heard many things about your cauliflower crust flatbread. I wanted to try it for myself. I was not impressed. I got the barbecue chicken flatbread with caramelized onions. It had very few ingredients and was basically tasteless.

Beautiful outdoor setting on patio, complete with sunset and acoustic music. Seeing old friends and making new ones is a delight usually reserved for vacations. Very clean, tables well spaced. Servers masked and ready to take care of your drink and culinary needs. Great memories were made that night!!
