We visited on 2nd January to celebrate a birthday. Drinks were fab and Julie on the bar was very welcoming. However we ordered food and one of the party was Gluten Free, of the 3 dishes they questioned they were told they were all Gluten Free and would come with Gluten Free gravy. We ordered and then about ten minutes... More

Being local, we visit The Swan on regular occasions but they certainly surpassed themselves on Christmas Day. Our table of seven, plus one dog, had the 3.30 sitting, the food was delicious and plentiful, we were not rushed in any way and thoroughly enjoyed the day. Big thanks to the chef and all the hard working staff.

We are a vegetarian/ vegan family and the hotel catered for our every need. There were options on the menu. Our four Christmas dinner was delicious. We even had treats that were varied and delicious. From cake, snacks and chocolates.

We visited on a Friday where they were offering 2 fish and chip meals for the price of one, excellent chips freshly cooked as. Was the fish. Combine that with Fullers beers what more could you ask for for a lunchtime treat. Would visit again if ever in Arundel

Booked for 1:30pm Saturday for 4 people. Service and food disappointing. The turkey/sausages/stuffing quite average but the vegetables were terrible. Although there were 4 of us we were given 3 small bowls of vegetable meaning we were expected to share 3 parsnips? When I pointed this out we were told that's they way the chef doled them out.

The Swan sits in a great central location. The rooms are lovely and well decorated. Enjoyed a party atmosphere when we got back, but all quiet by 11.00 for those who wanted to sleep! Only criticism was the breakfast was a bit luke warm

This is a traditional pub in central Arundel, a town that was literally packed on Saturday evening. We didn't have a reservation, hence we tried and fortunately (this was around 7pm) they had a table for two. The beer was very good, a tasty aromatic ale perfect for the season. The menu was interesting, with some classics and some interesting... More

We had a lot of extra guests added at the last minute for my husband's 40th birthday party recently and our original venue was unable to accommodate the late additions.
