I hate doing negative reviews .....sadly, and rarely, I have to. Our club group of about 15 booked a nice area in the restaurant for a short meeting, to be followed by a pre ordered (a few days before) meal to be served at 20.00. The restaurant was not especially busy, but to wait until just after 20.30 before the... More

Promised a money voucher but nothing arrived.Went there for lunch the next day which was nice although a bit overpriced for the small amount of food served.

We saw this on our way home, and stopped in for some Sunday dinner. The pub is well decorated, large, and clean, and we were greeted with a warm welcome.

Arrived at The Swan for Sunday Roast and was seated in the restaurant area. Lovely atmosphere, great looking dining room and friendly staff. Our food arrived and was well presented and full of flavour. Would definitely return for a roast again and will recommend.
