We booked last minute for an evening meal tonight. Our waiter was brilliant, explained everything to us and checked the meal was ok. We both had pizza which was very big but lovely. We will definitely return.

The pub was taken over by new management about a yeat ago and the pub has never looked back.A vast improvement. If you like pizza there is a wood burning pizza oven.... More

We visited The White Swan on the 12th March and we were not disappointed. We all went for fish & chips and WOW when they came out we were amazed. The size and quality of the fish and chips was exceptional. I think our waitress was called Annabelle, not 100% sure but she was a pleasure to talk to and... More

We decided to try the Pub again, it's been going downhill for years. People are saying it's now the place to visit. Big Mistake, the staff are appalling getting our orders mixed up, so we didn't eat together. The management didn't want to know when we complained. AVOID

I booked a table for 4. For my Partners Daughter's Birthday. My partner and her Daughter are both Vegan & when I rang to speak to someone to see what options were available I was put on to the Head Chef. She could not have been more helpful and asked for any particular meals that they would like. When offered,... More

Good décor/style but way overpriced for the quality of food served. Pizzas needed longer in the oven, kids just do not like raw veggies on the topping and bases were just past raw dough. £12 for a roast dinner that serves veg NOT al dente but crunchy?? Did not enjoy the afternoon, looking at the table there was food left... More

Nice pub, (traditional), food is well priced and simple, the steak and kidney pie was good except for the texture of the beef, rather tough but tasty, my partner had chillie con carni, ok but not the best chillie she had tasted. The staff were very friendly and attentive, not disappointed as the price reflected the menu, worth a drop... More

Have just eaten lunch here, and the food was fantastic. We had burgers and pizza. Couldn't fault either of them. Great service and a friendly atmosphere. Will be returning soon.
