Lovely food and lovely wait staff - they allowed us to have our dogs in the non-dog area. But our starter arrived more than 35 minutes after we ordered - which for lunch is a bit slow.

We both had a roast dinner which was yummy. Good portion. Had a side of pigs in blankets. I was too full for a pudding so decided to try the homemade fudge which was very good. Girls were really attentive. Will definitely go back after lock down.

Overall pretty good. Food was very nice.
Lighting very bright killed the atmosphere and music too quiet.
Banofie pudding was a sticky toffee which was disappointing.
Dim those lights down!!!!

The service was very slow. We asked to have a "little rest" before dessert..
The "rest" lasted 30 minutes!!

Fantastic food, great service, the kids love the place as much as us, but, £6 for 4 small rings of calimari was ridiculous!

The service from the staff was excellent. They seemed a little stretched so it was a bit slower than anticipated but everyone remained warm and friendly, and they were all obviously working their hardest. Food was delicious and the menu was varied enough that it was tough to choose!

Really lovely pub, very quiet on a Tuesday lunchtime, so social distancing wasn't difficult. Service was excellent, very friendly staff. I was expecting something a little more creative when we both chose the vegetarian burger and chips. Just a plain TVP burger in a bun with tomato slices and iceberg lettuce. Something like a bean burger and more interesting green leaves and more interesting dressing would have been good. I'd come back again but be more careful with my choices.

The overall experience was nice and the staff were great
The room Was clean and light but it was cold when we arrived
The staff were friendly and helpful
In the restaurant, again it was cold but this could be down to having to keep a door open? Food was ok, steaks were not as good as hoped and the wine prices were very high

The whole entire experience was lovely, the food was delicious, however drinks were very pricey. A lemonade is normally around £2 something, however in total it cost us £7 something for 2 drinks which is rather pricey. The same with the cider we ordered it cost £5 something for just one bottle.

The food was average, I would say slightly overpriced for the quality. It wasn’t at all bad I have to point out. The Covid cleaning is an issue. Whist the waiting staff wore masks, the menus were sticky with drink stains - they had not been cleaned. I would assume dirty menus are a massive COVID risk and why more responsible restaurants have disposable ones or an app these days.

The Swan is a charming pub in a lovely setting. The food was very good, with some items (the fish and chips especially) being excellent. The service was very friendly and accommodating and we returned for a second night, as we had enjoyed our first meal there so much.

It took 30 minutes to order a drink, 60 minutes to order food, our waitress was new, but not confident or well trained, menu limited, starters ok, mains only adequate. Free desert was some compensation.
