The positives are good location, good interior and dog friendly. However...
Very sllloooowwwww service!
Ordered a bottle of Becks and the waitress failed to say they only do alcohol free. I thought I was becoming immune to Becks!! Barman happily exchanged it for a Peroni.
Ordered a jacket potato with beans and cheese. The first attempt, the order was wrong, a plain jacket came out.
A little time later, an over cooked charcoaled potato came out. By this time, was a little bit over the The Swan and just wanted to get out, so just had it. Left an awful after taste!
Another order for our party of 3 was a steak ciabatta - “tough as old boots”!
The third order was a tuna mayo baguette...thankfully simple to not mess up!
Will not be coming back, would not recommend for food! Maybe coming in for a drink when passing would be ok...I’d rather bring my own sarnies than eat in the The Sean next time!!

Went for dinner here last minute last week and it did not disappoint. It was nice and busy, which is always a good sign, and you can tell everything is cooked fresh. We had the thai green curry and a pie and honestly the curry was the best thai green curry I have ever had.

We went to the bar to finish our drinks which was a bit quieter and the music kept being turned up very loudly, which was weird, but we weren't there long enough for it to bother us. It is obviously very popular with the locals as everyone knows eachother, which is nice.

It is also dog friendly which is great! Not enough dog friendly places around! We will definitely be back!

Visited for lunch today with a pre booked party of 10. Took nearly an hour for our mediocre food to arrive, another long wait for dessert & again to pay the bill. This used to be a great pub - has it changed hands?

Never again
