During a visit to Olney with friends we decided to pop in here for lunch. Fortunately we were quite early so managed to get a table without reservation but the tables soon filled up. All 4 of us fancied having the tandoori chicken skewers which were on the specials board as a starter, but the kitchen kindly agreed to serve... More

Food was average pub grub. My wife felt the waiting staff made her feel she was in the way with the pram by the table. I hope we weren't too much of an inconvenience ...

This was an unexpected surprise. We decided on the off chance to call in and check the Sunday lunch. Could tell immediately it would be good, very busy, managed to get table for two. The food going to other tables looked amazing. We ordered the roast pork, fabulous the quality and amount great. The price was reasonable and service excellent.... More

The Pub was warm and clean. The staff were efficient and friendly. We did not book but were accommodated instantly. The Starters were all delicious and substantial. The mains were well presented and of the highest quality. The quality of produce was high and seasoning perfect.

Just popped in here for a quick bit, as some of the shop keepers had recommended it. The atmosphere was bit like a cafe and we did not feel comfortable having some lunch. The food was OK and I have to say we will try somewhere else when we next visit Olney (which is a great place to visit)

I have been going to the Swan for over fifteen years and in the past this place was great! But since the new management have taken over its simply overpriced and not even close to how it was. This is a crying shame for a business that was built over 20 years of serving fresh local food, all the signature... More

Met a friend for lunch in Olney toady and decided to try to Swan. Bar menu was good - not too extensive but still a good choice. We both opted for sandwiches - one roast beef (good and pink) and one fish finger - with a side order of chips each. Food arrived promptly and nicely presented on a board... More

On visiting Olney we took a chance with the Sunday roast in this pub. The pub/restaurant was busy which was a good sign. And we were sat quickly although having not booked. I had the roast pork with the usual trimmings. Although it looked the part and it was a generous serving it was very disappointing. The pork was particularly... More

Saturday lunch time the week before Christmas and it was extremely busy, but we managed to book a table at very short notice. All the above didn't impact on the food's quality and all three courses were delicious. Our first venture into an eatery in our new home's nearest town and it didn't disappoint. The decor may be a little... More
