We paid a recent visit but were unimpressed. It was hard to buy drinks because almost the whole and fairly long bar has stools against it which were all occupied. When a gap was found there was a long wait for bar staff to appear....More

Fantastic find, friendly staff and a great choice of meals from the menu. With it being lunch time we had a few dishes from the special board and shared between us, this was delicious particularly the calamari. Will definitely be returning 😊

My husband ate fish and chips, which he declared was excellent. The fish was white, and the batter crispy and was excellent value for money. My burger was huge and very tasty. There was a specials board with a good selection too.

Went to the Black Swan on a recommendation and found it to be friendly and welcoming. Beautiful location, a relaxed atmosphere and great food. We shared two lite bites and chips finished off with a delicious lemon sponge.

I don't believe they do unfortunately. Think they open for drinks for a couple of hours but that's it.

We are a friendly run family pub. Where a warm welcome awaits you every time. You can sit outside on the patio or sit over looking the river Severn . Enjoying a nice ice cold drink or have a meal, looking out for the kingfishers or the otters. In the winter, you can enjoy a meal inside feeling the warmth of our log burner. Or just enjoy a drink. Soaking up the friendly atmosphere. Sit at the bar and have a nice chat with our friendly locals. We are a dog friendly pub. There are water bowls outside, for our four legged friends. We also serve a variety of teas, coffees, lattes, fruit teas, hot chocolate etc. There is a special board, which is changed throughout the year. With a large selection of vegetarian options.
