Great drinks and food and friendly atmosphere. Bar staff are great and even though on holiday park remember who you are and what you drink. Made to feel really welcome

Thanks for taking your time to leave this review!

Our customers love the personable service in The Swan, and our bar staff are second to none.

We've added some board games to the pub, so now you can challenge the family over a drink or too...

Love frequenting the Swan whenever we are staying at this site. A lovely selection of cider, ales and lager on tap. Have never failed to thoroughly enjoy whatever meal we’ve selected. You can tell the products are as they ‘say’ especially quality selected. Proper chips that I enjoy (not skinny fries ). Can also thoroughly recommend the crumble and custard for a dessert if you have room for it. The friendly staff also make it a pleasant occasion.

Thank Richard P

Thanks for the review Richard - we loved having you here!

We're always working hard to ensure we have the tastiest local cider, ales and lager - what better excuse to give them all a try eh?! All of our food is prepared in the same kitchen as Amelia's Pantry (our award-nominated cafe and restaurant) so you know all the food you get is lovingly created from the freshest local produce! We love the crumble and custard too... yum!

We can't wait to welcome you back soon!

When holidaying here we always enjoy having meals here. All the products are locally sourced, this does show through in the flavour. The choice of food is great and the cost is very fair. Also love the fact they will entertain you inside with your dogs.

Whilst staying on the holiday park we availed ourselves of this dog friendly pub on a few occasions during our stay, it's well placed adjacent to the lovely outside pool so as the weather was good we invariably sat on the terrace in the sun sampling some of the many choices of local ciders & ales.

We ate in here on one occasion & enjoyed a very good curry.
We found the staff friendly & the pub was kept clean & tidy

We were camping in Cofton Holiday Park and decided to go to the on-site pub on our last evening. We ordered a bottle of wine while we looked at the menu and then went to the bar to give our order. Two fish n' chips and some garlic bread as a starter. "Sorry, no garlic bread" said the young bar-man. I was about to go back to our table to ask my wife what else she might like but was stopped by the bar-man. "Sorry", he said, "no starters The chef said that as there weren't very many customers he wasn't going to do any". As one can imagine, I was incredulous. Even the logic was floored. One can possibly imagine that if the pub was packed he might possibly say that, but when the pub was empty ..........! As we had to pay for our drink when we bought the wine (they were unable to give us a tab!) we had no option but to stay. Another couple who overheard the conversation and were about to order a meal with starter got up and left and said that they wee going to eat at the Anchor just down the road.
The next day before we left I asked reception if not serving starters was Company policy. They assured me that it wasn't and seemed most upset that it had happened.
I would have give the food that we did have a 4* rating but in view of the lazy chef can only give it one.
Suggestion to Company. Get rid of chef and employ a proper one.
