As you walk in the main door to The Swan on the road up to the high street turn left for a comfortable pub and go right for the restaurant. Good service and a menu that should suit everyone. We ate there twice in the evening after The Goodwood Members Meeting. The tables were well set and a decent gap... More

We stayed in the hotel on Saturday 11th ? March. We were welcomed on arrival and decided to have lunch before going to our rooms. The lunch menu was varied and interesting with meals to suit all appetites and tastes. I had eggs royal which was delicious. Lovely to see Veltins beer on the bar as well! Our room was... More

We have eaten here before with mixed experiences. Lovely decor, hits the right note of still being a pub but also a nice place to sit and eat. The service was slow despite them not being overly busy - for instance coffee took at least 20 mins to arrive. Main courses were good, we had the pie as it's national... More

We had two nights here with friendly service. Lots of different size rooms but stairs a little steep for those with walking issues. Generally quiet though and good value.

The night before I had tried the Pork Belly from the Norfolk Arms, so thought O would do a comparison. There was nothing between them, both excellent in their own ways. Loved the dauphinoise potatoes and the crackly crackling. Great atmosphere and the service was fantastic. My only negative is the salted caramel ice cream was extremely salty, more like... More

Been here a few times now for dinner/brunch/lunch etc and we're never disappointed! Food is delicious, you can really tell the management/staff/chefs etc really care about the quality of the food they're producing and it's paying off. Dining area is very comfortable, clean and well-presented, service is good and the atmosphere friendly. Keep doing what you're doing!

I really don't like writing poor reviews but on this occasion, I felt it necessary. We were so looking forward to eating at the Swan having not been for a number of years. Unfortunately, due to a shortage of kitchen staff (we were told), waiting times were unacceptably long and the food when it came was a mixed bag at... More

Met with a friend here for lunch-it was 2 for 1 fish and chips which were big and tasty. I booked a table online and was subsequently sent a voucher for a free drink. The barmaid was very welcoming and friendly, the food was really good and the surroundings very pleasant.

We visited for a Sunday lunch after booking on-line. We had an excellent roast of chicken, the only issue was that by the time we ate at 2pm, there was no roast beef left. The vegetables which came with the meals were very good, carrots, cabbage, parsnips, red cabbage and roasts, well cooked and hot. The staff were also happy... More
