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!

easy to park - chargeable at point of entrey but refunded by the restaurant.Really good and interesting menu. Food quality was excellent and the service attentive without being obtrusive and efficient in terms of meal pace. Will definitewly use again. Prices a touch less than Woburn but very close to Woburn.

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 visit again (?)

Thank dstnic

Hi there,

thanks for taking the time to leave us the review and apologies once again for the food quality issues you experienced. I am pleased you felt I dealt with the issue well and hopefully the discounted bill went a little way to show our remorse.

Hopefully, we will see you another time?
Thanks
Marian

The car park on arrival can be a bit intimidating which is a shame, though parking cost is taken off the bill. On entering the Swann the welcome is warm and friendly and the staff go out of their way to please. The restaurant has enlarged and been reorganised since our last meal and is well thought out. The food was as always good and presented in a way that is very appealing. The staff take great care and are always anxious to ensure things are right. If they know you are heading for a show at the Stables afterwards they ensure your meal is served leaving plenty of time to enjoy the food and still arrive at the theatre in time. Highly recommended for a meal or for that special occasion.
