Excellent choice on the menu. Lovely food very well presented If you are looking for burgers and steaks keep moving. This food is 1st class dining albeit a little expensive.

This was my 3rd visit.. first was for a Sunday roast which was delicious, and the service was very good. A few weeks later, returned with friends after telling them how nice it was. Very disappointing, even though I ordered the same meal as previously, it was completely different. Even tasted completely different and not in a good way! Complained... More

Visited for a family birthday. Restaurant empty and food pre ordered. Not normally one to complain. Fish and chips adult portion was the same size as childrens. Fish creasy. Burgers red and under cooked, taste disgusting and burger roll hard. Sticky toffee pudding completely ineddible, burnt, cold and rock hard.

Booked in advance for a family gathering, you'd think that would have given them the time to prepare the food to a better standard Long list of gripes Adults meals were the same size as the kids meals The fish in the fish and chips was greasy and had a strange taste to it, several of us had this, not...

We went for a Saturday lunch, preordered all our food, but sadly the meal was not up to scratch, and alot of the food was disappointing. We have eaten at the Swan on previous occasions and the food was good, but I don't think we will be going there again.

Visited one Saturday lunchtime as our first choice for eating was full, no tables available. On arrival it wasn't particularly busy, we ordered drinks, starters and mains. We then waited for a long time, then the waitress came over to confirm our order as there appeared to be a mix up, which considering that it wasn't busy was somewhat odd!... More

We were staying in Tewkesbury and passed this pub on the way back from a day out. We stopped for a quick drink to investigate the menu and decided to return later in the evening for a meal. We had a gourmet discount card and our friends had a similar card but both had slightly different offers and the staff... More

Visited for lunch and were very disappointed. Expensive and distinctly average food. Service was OK and food arrived quickly - for some of the dishes we had ordered it made me think it had just been reheated. I had a ploughman's lunch which was predominantly bread and where the cheese was quite tasteless.
