Olney is lucky to have this venue. It's been consistently excellent for years now, surviving - and thriving - through ownership changes, and the re-emergence of strong local competition. I last reviewed this in 2013. I was impressed and gave it a 4-star rating. This...More

The Swan Inn has incredible food, drinks and the staff and service was amazing. Even though two new bistro restaurants have opened this hands down is the best place to eat and drink in Onley. Will definitely be going again 5\5

Came with two elderly ladies who didn’t want a huge lunch but something light to eat in pleasant surroundings. This was perfect - attentive staff, atmospheric old pub, not too noisy, good lunch options and not too expensive = we were all happy!

Popped in on the off chance of grabbing a table for lunch. Husband was more than happy with his choice of liver and bacon and I had the portobello mushrooms from the specials board. Both dishes served quickly and both very tasty

We stopped here for lunch to break the journey. Quite an extensive menu and we chose fish & chips and a beef and pork lasagne. My husband really enjoyed the fish, nicely cooked and the batter was light. The lasagne was unusual, the tomato sauce...More
