Have to say this is one of the best village pubs we have been to. We live nearby and as often as we can make visits to The Swan for a few drinks, games and laughs. Unlike a lot of village pubs, you get a true welcoming feeling the moment you walk through the door. All of the drinks are... More

Went last week and will not return. We had two salads and they were served with micro chicken. Grey in places and not cooked. The salad was not much better. The land lord and lady could'nt care less if you were there or not. It's a shame really as it could be really good.

Had a lovely meal here with the family. Outside play area was great for the children as we could relax and watch them play. Food was good quality and tasty. Good value for money

Very friendly and reasonably priced pub, nice atmosphere. Open fire in the winter gives the place a traditional feel and the cheesy chips are incredible !

When I'm back in the UK The Swan Inn at Gressenhall is my local pub and restaurant and now it is the best it has been since I can remember! The beer is great (from memory at least two ales on at once) and although I haven't actually eaten there (yet, due to time constraints only) the menu is very... More

It changed hands a few times in the last 8 years. The new owner serves meals everyday from Sunday roasts to pensioners’ lunch on a Wednesday. We had been here for... More
