Went with friends and had the cod sandwich with sweet potato fries! Was nice although the cod was a bit greasy! Have been here for tapas and totally recommend it! Not that keen on the hot stone steak I'd rather have someone cook it to my liking rather than cook it myself after all I'm paying for someone to cook... More

I was totally surprised by the size of the Pizza, and the fact that it was king prawn and scallops increased my delight. The staff were very attentive and explained we could take any left with us.

This is a very pretty 16th century coaching house that has been converted into a pub, restaurant ('STONEAGED') and bed and breakfast. There are a couple of lovely period suites but our room (15) was quite average although the bathrooms are very nice. What makes this place is the staff and what they are happy to do for their guests.... More

Met my son for lunch in Henley - arrived in this delightful place early and asked a couple of locals which of the many pubs they would recommend (there are lots) I was pointed to the White Swan. Steak was excellent service from smiley girls, parking at back and huge area for eating outside - recommend this place
