Good service in a lovely pub. And the best ever veggie beetroot risotto I have ever had!!! Menu looked nice not loads of options but went with a group of 10 and everyone's looked nice inc the Sunday roasts.

Had a great business dinner for 7 in their back room. The service was great and the nene had some great choices. I had the crayfish and prawns and the salmon both very well prepared and full of flavor. Our waiter was very good.

Two days in a row.... first day we had burgers - the second day we had the crayfish salad and beetroot and gotat's cheese. Doesn't look like a lot, but trust me it was out of this world! The chocolate brownie was TO DIE FOR! Staff couldn't be friendlier. Loved it!!!

Great Sunday lunch but then waited forty minutes for dessert. Service is definitely the weak point of the Swan.
