I decided to visit the Swan again after a long time, as Alex was back. My husband and I decided to have the set menu. Our first course arrived and was delicious, unfortunately we waited another 45 minutes for our main, and that's when it all went wrong. My husbands meal came and looked very nice. I ordered the pan... More

Have visited this restaurant many times and have never been disappointed. Always good food and menu changes regularly. However it is noticeable that prices have risen and this brings the question of value for money. £14 for a mixed platter of food for two which has around £2 of actual food on it does challenge you on the overall restaurant...

Visited for dinner with friends Saturday 22 April. Understaffed and they were seriously overstretched, service took ages. When food eventually did arrive - 3 x soup of the day - almost stone cold, bread and no butter. One starter - beef - was good. Complained - waitress polite but indifferent! Main course 2 chicken, 1 bream, 1 fishcake ...... chicken... More

Well, what can I say. Despite it being a small restaurant, what an experience (if you can afford it as it is expensive to eat here) to have should you visit. Top cuisine, top service and very friendly. Top marks from me!!!

This wonderful pub and restaurant offers a fine range of food and drinks. The menu is excellent with weekly chalk board specials. I have been going to this restaurant for many years and it offers a good lunch and dinner in a very nice environment with friendly staff. Try there steaks. A very good range of cuts

very good food if a bit pricey; but there is a fixed price menu which we did not use. We enjoyed the lunch. The service was relatively speedy, though the restaurant was not very full. Surprising for Easter Sunday

Such a shame but the whole meal turned into a disaster. To be fair the service was not so bad but the food was extremely disappointing. Cold swordfish, sent back twice, forgot our sides, lamb rack for £22 was an utter rip off, they were there tiniest pieces ever (we have had lamb here before been before and it used... More

Some of the menu was not available and the food we ordered and got didn't seem to match the description on the Menu.The quality of the food is excellent,but the presentation and service at the table let's it down. If only the creative writing of the... More

Lovely food when we got it, but poor service, 40 mins for a sharing board, staff arguing over menu availability, missing items dared to ask for additional drinks two of us never did get them. Waitress not in a good mood, slamming of plates, muttering under breath about her colleague generally made us feel like we were an inconvenience. Really... More
