8 persons attended, 3 meals were satisfactory within the quoted menu. However 5 meals were totally unsatisfactory. Why? The ordered and quoted crayfish starters had never seen a crayfish unless they looked like prawns. Also, the very unsatisfactory meals were of Slow Cooked Ducks Breast. A car tyre would best describe the quality of the items served together with a... More

Firstly please accept our apologies for you Christmas meals, but as stated at the time the Duck is cooked medium rare, and we were more than happy to cook it further for you which we did, and we explained that the more its cooked the tougher it would be. Again I would like to apologise on behalf of the Swan... More

..... and got what we paid for. Now this sounds like a very small annoyance at best but, on reading the many other negative reviews on this pub, certainly seems to point to a larger problem. What's the annoyance? On ordering two pints and being served and paying, the change was slapped down on the bar where we had to... More

I have been here several times and I have enjoyed the food. The sharing platters are good starters and one sharing platter will very happily feed 4 grown ups as a started. We didn't wait long for mains and it was a fairly busy evening too. The waitress was really lovely and honest about the menu. The pinot Grigio Rose... More

They do set meals for two like buy two for a set price, inclusive are mains, starters, deserts, they also have another menu for just individual meals. We went as a group and really enjoyed ourselves. Lovely old English pub, with a lovely atmosphere to it.

Ordered scallops without bacon as pescatarian and never eat meat. Arrived with bacon. Asked for fresh starter minus bacon and not to just scrape it off. Arrived back 1 minute later. Asked... More

Went to this restaurant last week, the service was good and the staff very friendly, I think the food was cooked to order as we had to wait but it was worth it.

Decided to give the pub another try as it has changed hands a few times. We Fish & Chips & mushy peas from the £4.99 menu and dessert from the main menu both were adequate. The service was very friendly and both servers keen to oblige. Will visit again.

Had heard Ok feedback from others and Ok just about sums it up. Beef roast was ok, Yorkshire puddings were crispy and vegetables were Ok. Some dishes weren't available but we did eat quite late so expect they had sold out. Service was good. Would go again as the kids said they liked it. So I guess will give this... More
