I have normally avoided this pub, as the online menu has a limited number of vegetarian dishes, few of which looked like they could be veganised (many dishes in pubs can be without much diffculty). However it's my other half's favourite pub, so we booked there for his birthday. Initially it was a bit awkward because they didn't have a... More

Came here on Boxing Day for our family Christmas lunch as we were staying nearby in a rented cottage. It needed to be booked a while before, so food could be prepared in advance for our party of 10. The pub itself was open for regular business and there were plenty of patrons there for food and drinks. The service... More

We live outside of the UK, but when we come back we always frequent the Swan for drinks and/or meals. It is still very good, the food is superb, great quality food & beer. Highly recommend it.

Been in here when it was 'bouncing' and really didn't like it but on arrival this time, the place was very quiet with only a handful of drinkers and no one eating. Have feeling that this was mainly to do with the season but did give our visitors an opportunity to get a feel for the layout and character but... More

Met with my sister and brother in law for a catch up. This is the second time we have been here, very good food and service. It was very busy so there was a bit of a wait, but we expected that and they did apologise. Would recommend and would definitely eat here again

Despite being clearly informed that one of our party was allergic to nuts, the vegetables served to the table were garnished with hazelnuts/almonds. We were not warned and they had an allergic reaction, fortunately not serious but distressing nonetheless. To add insult to injury they served biscotti with the coffee. Cannot recommend this restaurant

Avoid if you have a food allergy. Ordered the fish pie with veg but when the veg arrived they were covered in hazelnuts. They later said the veg were for the pork dish but no one told me and it was the only veg on the table. I had told them I had a peanut and nut allergy. I had... More

We visited on the Wednesday after Christmas and booked in advance, based on the positive feedback on TripAdvisor. The bar and restaurant are decorated in the smart modern style that my wife and I describe as 'trendy light green'. We arrived early and watched as the the bar and restaurant filled up, with the management turning away prospective restaurant customers... More

A last min booking for my husband and I, we hadn't gone out expecting to have Xmas dinner but boy were we glad we did, After great starters we decided to try the full Christmas dinner as the Christmas menu had just started. Wow, what a great decision, perfectly cooked in every way and so tasty. Vegetables were cooked with... More

We popped in for lunch and everything was very good. All the dishes we ordered were really nice. The atmosphere is good and the staff are helpful and friendly. Only cons might be frozen chips rather than narural ones and prices are a bit expensive. I would come back though. It is a good place!
