We arrived for our booking at about 1.35pm but didn't get our food until 2.45pm. We were all starving! The Sunday roasts and other food came out and it took another 5 minutes for the veg to come out as the roasts cooled. They were generous with the gravy but the portion of the chicken roast was tiny compared to... More

We visited The White Swan for the first time this week. As we entered, the warm friendly atmosphere was initiated by a Giant friendly Barman, the liking of a Viking! After our drinks were served we were seated at a designated table. The Waitress was very polite & helpful throughout our visit, even the owner Matthew introduced himself to us,... More

Having read the views I popped in a bit late for Lunch but stayed to talk to the locals and a few ales, served by a lovely lady and later the Landlord who has their feet firmly on running a Free House on a Busy road, with some great reviews we will drop in for Lunch or Dinner very soon,... More

Having read previous good reviews, we decided to give it a try. We had an evening meal there last week and the food was excellent. We started with salmon mousse which was delicious and beautifully presented, followed by liver and bacon with a dish of perfectly cooked vegetables. There was no room for dessert!! There was a nice atmosphere and... More

Myself and my partner popped in for a bite to eat and came away extremely satisfied. My partner had a huge freshly battered cod... and for me it was the roast pork. .. accompanied by crisp veg , juicy sausages , fluffy Yorkshire pudding and a side of crackling !! Highly recommend and we will definitely be going back again... More

Found this lovely pub when let down by another restaurant. Our waitress Emily was very patient with various requests differing from the menu. The food was fantastic especially the rice pudding. We didn't have the roast but it looked amazing.

We ate in The White Swan for Valentines Day and a birthday recently. On both occasions the food was perfect: high quality, delicious and beautifully presented; the service was attentive whilst still allowing for an intimate meal; and the playlist was just what these 90s/00s indie rockers could have wished for. Thank you for two lovely evenings!

It was Monday lunchtime so we didn't expect it to be busy and I understand they need to clean sometime but the smell of bleach on our arrival was a bit off putting. As was the dirty water in the flowers on the windowsill. We both ordered the rib eye and, although we asked for one rare and the other... More
