We had Sunday lunch, which is a roast based menu. The service was excellent and, especially as they were fully booked, we were served very promptly.

The food was well cooked and the home made deserts in particular were excellent. The roast beef was well cooked, which may have been too much for some, but suited my taste.

Certainly worth a return visit.

Thank you for your kind comments, we are pleased that you enjoyed visiting our pub. I have to obviously stipulate that we do not provide accommodation at present incase anyone reading this "wonderful place to stay" might think otherwise. We hope to have this rectified soon. I really hope that you will come and visit us again soon.

Thank you for your kind words, we are pleased that you enjoyed the food and I am still blushing from your comments about the Landlords being friendly or could that be the sunburn I have? We do hope that you will come and visit us again soon.

Visited with a colleague and friend without booking. Menu simple but a decent mix of choices. I had a Norfolk pie, nice portion size, lovely filling and great gravy. My friend had lasagne with garlic bread and salad, nice size and was told it was tasty. Shared a sticky toffee pudding lovely flavour but missing fruit in it. Beer choice was excellent

I am so sorry that I have not replied sooner. I remember serving you both myself and I am pleased to read you enjoyed your experience with us. We like to be simple and tasty as we class ourselves as a Pub and not one of these new places opening up in villages ruining it for the locals. We are proud to provide home cooked food at affordable prices. With regards to Sticky Toffee Pudding we have gone from customer feedback and people prefer it without the fruit, but we will certainly take your comments on board. We hope that you can visit us again and a big thank you from all the staff at the Swan.
