The food came quickly and was excellent with service to match.We indulged in dessert which again were good.All in all an enjoyable evening but bear in mind for a pub the prices were slightly...

The menu is modern and might not suit customers who are not adventurous in their tastes. However, the food is good and the unhurried service left us time to savour one of the four guest beers (chosen after expert advice from one of the waiters) before eating. The wine list caters for all tastes and our New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc... More

There's not much in the way of choice in Farnborough for drinking or eating - so my partner and I were really pleased when the Swan reopened last year. We go quite often for food and it's where we take people when they come to visit. We've never been disappointed by the food (intact the desserts are amazing) and it's... More

Mu husband and I dropped into The Swan without booking as we only live a five minute walk away. Being seated wasn't a problem. We ordered the Pinot Noir which was lovely. I had the battered Haddock with chips, mushy peas and tartare sauce. The fish was beautifully cooked, lovely and flaky with a light, delicate batter. The mushy peas... More

have popped in here a few times for a quick lunch and drink (or two), food is always lovely and not too expensive. The outside area is quieter than you expect with the Airport being so close, yes obviously when a plane goes over its noisy, but we were expecting it to be louder (pleasantly surprised)

Yet again another fantastic visit. The food was great and quick, they also catered my childrens needs, fish and chips is highly recommended. The Swan was busy (After work), but the atmosphere was great and the staff were efficient. Great local pub!

What a great find. Very pleasant, welcoming staff, who know and clearly care about the beer and wine that they sell. A not too large menu that still offers plenty of choice and variety of beautifully prepared, cooked and presented food. All six of our party loved their choices of food. Pub itself is bright, clean and tastefully decorated and... More
