It was an off the cuff visit , as it was a rainy night and we fancied pub grub . It was very busy, but the staff couldn't have been more helpful . We were soon sat at a table and served with good value and lovely meals. In fact the standard of the food was far better than we... More

We frequently have lunch here as it's an easy walk from home. The food is well cooked and they have a comprehensive menu. One of us usually has the pie of the day and I have the liver and onions (which is delicious). Good portions and, usually, not a long wait to be served. Friendly staff and a nice ambience.

After a little bit of surfing online, we found The White Swan, and what a good find it was! The food ordered was of a high quality and the relaxed family atmosphere during lunch was really nice. Plenty to choose from on the menu and if it's all the same quality as the Cod, Cajun Chicken and baguettes then it's... More
