    My family and I attended the swan in order to have dinner. The adults meals were good as always, however the childs burger for my 11 year old was below standard. The burger was hard and my daughter ended up leaving it. I didn’t bring this to the attention of staff as I believe the chef would of known this prior to sending it out. Very disappointed

    I requested a quiet area, so I was seated at the back, which was good. However that put us by the area the food comes out, and that was really noisy. Asked for no onion on my burger, but still had it. Added Cheddar to my burger but really struggled to see it, let alone taste it unfortunately.

    Having to pay upfront when sitting in the garden is a pain,I understand the reason why,but there are other ways of getting around it.Charging a service charge before you have received any service is a bit of a misnomer,it was not pointed out,but was readily removed when queried. Meal was very well presented(fish n chips) with minted mushy peas and tartare sauce. The four of us voted it 7.5/10. General ambience of the restaurant is very good with some interesting dining areas Overall we would recommend for a pleasant if not outstanding dining experience

    Sevice not very efficient waiting quite a while between starters and mains even though I had pre booked food choices beforehand. Main was quite cold and potatoes very hard (ordered chicken breast) my husbands main pork loin was also quite cold. I would have said something but we were all quite hungry after waiting an hour for the mains to arrive.

    Booked an outside table for my husband’s birthday and because we have three year old twin grandsons. When we arrived there was no outside table reserved for us and the floor of the inside eating area was very dirty, even the use of a broom would have helped. When the food arrived there was one order missed and we had to wait for it to be cooked! What a birthday treat!

    We had a lovely meal and the Swan is always very accommodating in adapting meals as I have intolerances. Staff are well mannered, however we were left for quite a while after our meal with no follow up or opportunity to ask for the bill. But I will be re visiting as usually they are fantastic.

    Terrible service, restaurant was very quiet yet staff said they were busy! Such a shame as we’ve had great times here in the past, our friends were persuaded to try here again (recently had a terrible experience and walked out) yet we said it’s always been great. This time it wasn’t. Won’t be coming back in a hurry sadly.

    Dog friendly pub serving traditional Sunday lunch. Food was good and mid price range at £16 for a roast dinner. A glass of wine however was £9.50 which I thought was extortionate.

    I do like the Swan first and foremost but feel a couple of things have decreased in quality and value since my previous visit 3 months ago. The menu has changed from a decent paper one to a plastic fold out one that you get in cheaper chain places. Looks cheaper and get greasy marks on so not the best move. Neither is changing the wonderful brownie dessert by removing the little jug of chocolate sauce - a real highlight previously! The prices for the mains are a little on the steep side especially when the veg part wasn’t cooked or presented very well - dry slightly curled up carrots and parsnips. Beef and ale pie on the small side and a couple of bits of gristle. Good food but not as good as previous visits. Now too expensive for me to bring the kids so definitely only for me and a friend from now on. I will return but not sure if I’ll have full meals from now on.

    Bit of a wait for food, but totally acceptable given that the restaurant was very busy and we didn't have starters. All the main courses were cooked fresh and well worth waiting for, just simply delicious.

    Decor good, quiet and calm. Lunch Table for 13:30, ordered at bar but 1.5 hour delay until food arrived at 15:00 in a half full restaurant. No apology or offer to manage delay: we had to approach bar and ask where the food was. Pie good, pizzas cool and rubbery (?sitting for a while). Service was added automatically. Overall disappointing: delays can occur but they need to be managed. At the very least a “Sorry it’s been delayed”

    It was my birthday today so was expecting a nice meal. However the staff were hopeless. We waited quite a while for our meals. When they arrived, my son had the wrong meal and I was given my dads meal so we had to swap. Then when I ordered a glass of lemonade I was brought a glass of soda water, I asked to change it and yet I had another glass of soda water! But the third attempt I finally got a glass of lemonade! Not happy
