The Swan blew my expectations away. Real, authentic Texas BBQ is so hard to find in the UK: it's usually so gimmicky and the food is generally a let down. But at The Swan, I was incredibly impressed. I had mac & cheese with brisket and it was hands down the best Mac I've tried! To share, we also had... More

Having never been to a Smokehouse before I didn't what to expect. The meals were new to me and it was hard to decide what to have,... More

We had read previous reviews before popping along for a mid week evening meal whilst visiting the town for a few days. Ultimately we haven't found too much to say beyond what has already been said: Service: excellent servers; polite, efficient and courteous. Speed of service: SLOW. Not the server's fault. You just get the impression that it takes a... More
