As a family, whether in groups of 4, 6 or 8, we eat here every couple of months and its always excellent. The menu covers most bases so there's always something for everyone; its beautifully cooked and presented, and always delicious. Highly recommended.More

The menu at the Brasserie is less elaborate than the main restaurant of the Swan but it's the same chef and equally excellent food. There is a good range of dishes to choose from, with nightly specials, and a vegetarian menu too.More
