celebrated my daughters birthday here and the staff could not have been more helpful. We had a small area to ourselves and nothing was too much trouble - the service was great - and so was the food. Thanks to the team.

Antonio was our waiter and we could not fault the service he provided. Furthermore, the food was top notch and full of flavour, whilst the sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand was exquisit.

Decided to have lunch after visiting elderly aunt in the area. Staff very pleasant and sorted issues out as we had to send back both a starter and main course as they weren't very hot. Children enjoyed their food which was the main thing. Might...More

Description
The Swan is a stylish pub & restaurant in the lovely village of Woburn Sands and a haven away from the nearby bustle of Milton Keynes. Here you'll always find candles on the tables, a roaring log-fire in the winter and freshly cooked pub-food all day, every day. Our buzzing bar is a perfect spot to socialise over a bottle of wine or a pint of well-kept cask ale. We have the best spot on the high street to watch the world go by!
