Loved this place we had heard good things about the launch of their new menu and decided to try it out. I was very impressed with the burger I had and the messy fries are a must! Lovely manager. I didn't catch his name but he was so friendly as we walked in and made sure we were looked after.... More

It is all in the welcome. It so is. And it wasn't a problem to fit us in-o obviously a pretty busy night. There were hearts on the table & loads of choices of menu-fabulous attentive service & beautiful food. We felt loved.

Ate here on Friday night, the restaurant area behind the bar was quite busy which was good - it was a bit on the dark side but had a pleasant atmosphere. Good choice of food - we had the seafood linguine and the slow roasted belly pork which was excellent. The service was very good- lovely friendly staff and very... More

Had a 2 night stay at the Best Western Valley hotel a couple of hundred yards up the road. On the second night we took advantage of the Swan's Monday night offer of 50% off main courses. Had the rump steak which was fine, and good portion sizes. Beer was ok, choice of two real ales. Only criticism would be... More

We had evening drinks and a meal at the Swan. The bar and restaurant lacks any kind of history, warmth or character. However the staff tried hard and the food was very good.

Took advantage of the Monday and Tuesday meal offers, which were very good. I had steak first night - a really lovely meal. So nice - we went back the second evening. Would 100% recommend The Swan. Staff are friendly and accommodating.

It was tried simply as the first one found below the hotel, but a lucky find. It was busy at the end of a Friday and changed to people on a meal out. The staff made sure that we got a table, but did not pester for us to move on. Good choice of food.
