    Have eaten on three previous occasions at the Black Swan and very much enjoyed it. This time was very disappointing, took 15 minutes to receive drinks when seated and nearly an hour for food (only ordered main course). Service staff informed of delay, due to an event but surely this would have been planned for. Roast dinner was swimming in gravy, which serving staff nearly poured on me. Overall a very disappointing experience for my parents birthday (and had to pay 12.5% service charge).

    Dear Anonymous, Thank you so much for taking your time to leave us the review. I am very sorry to hear that your visit did not meet your expectations. The event was planned and was not from the main kitchen, but we did experience a very busy Sunday lunch. We take your feedback very seriously, please accept our apology and we hope that you give us another chance. Many thanks, Diana

    A really great experience. The food was different and delicious. As well as the usual staples there were some really lovely dishes that had been created by the chef and expertly cooked. The staff were all really well trained and helpful, the decor inside is great and there’s a large attractive pub garden.

    Food nicely presented and cooked but lacked imagination eg . hot smoked salmon was cooked well with nice crisp skin and pommes anna ok , this was accompanied with a very bland watercress and radish salad . It needed some sort of sauce /mayonnnaise and perhaps a decent vegetable to give it a lift . Sea bass was ok but the portion was woefully small . Starter of salmon tartare, mango , avocado and sweetcorn was lacking in any flavour at all . At these prices the food needs to be a lot better.

    Dear Martin, Thank you so much for your feedback, all feedback helps us improve our business. However we follow a very strict recipe and use the best ingredients on the market. All our food is freshly made in house. I will pass your comments to the kitchen staff so we can improve. Many thanks, Diana

    Arrived on a sunny evening and asked if we could have a drink outside for a while before heading to our booked table inside to eat. No problem - our drinks arrived promptly and we sat outside in the evening sun in a delightful area of greenery and comfortable seating. Our food arrived promptly - sea bass and salmon were excellent choices and much enjoyed by the three of us. Delightful staff, good beer and prompt service without feeling rushed. All in all, a very enjoyable evening at this very pleasant rural pub which we will repeat.
