Visit the Swan late afternoon, live pretty locally but not ventured there before in 18 years 😂 Its a lovely traditional pub, lovely hostess and a menu that had enough Gluten Free options to satisfy any coeliac or gluten intolerant. Both of us opted for Burgers, both chicken and beef for the other half. Gluten free roll for me is... More

All of our stocks that we use now are all Gluten free so we are able to cater more and more for what people want. We hope to... More

We had a lovely family meal last week. There was lots of choice both on the main menu and the specials board. There was also a 2 for £10 offer on some of the meals during the week.

This was a last minute choice for Sunday evening. Pub was very quiet Pleased to see that the Sunday beef roast was still available and this was the choice of all 5 of us Enormous plates made the meal look insubstantial which it really wasn't. Quality wasn't bad. Just basic pub grub. Deserts were poor and expensive. The main course... More

A mixed review but thank you nonetheless. I'm sorry you felt the desserts were poor and expensive, we very rarely get a complaint and certainly not regarding our desserts, however, we will take note and make sure that they are presented better next time. People do eat with their eyes a lot of the time (as in good presentation). I'm... More

Hello...the 2 for £10 like all promotions is something the customer has to request when ordering. We are not in the business of giving food away but equally...our smaller portioned 2 for £10 appeals to a lot of our customer Base. If a customer doesn't request it how are we meant to know. Our food is all freshly locally sourced... More
