The food was average, I would say slightly overpriced for the quality. It wasn’t at all bad I have to point out. The Covid cleaning is an issue. Whist the waiting staff wore masks, the menus were sticky with drink stains - they had not been cleaned. I would assume dirty menus are a massive COVID risk and why more responsible restaurants have disposable ones or an app these days.

The Swan is a charming pub in a lovely setting. The food was very good, with some items (the fish and chips especially) being excellent. The service was very friendly and accommodating and we returned for a second night, as we had enjoyed our first meal there so much.

It took 30 minutes to order a drink, 60 minutes to order food, our waitress was new, but not confident or well trained, menu limited, starters ok, mains only adequate. Free desert was some compensation.

Very welcoming. Service was excellent, friendly and efficient. My prawn and avocado starter was really good, almost a meal in itself. My steak was cooked just right. The thick chips were perfect. My only comment was that the accompanying salad was a bit disappointing; maybe because rocket or whatever was not my favourite green stuff.

The Swan offers a great night out - delivered in a COVID safe environment and manner. Both our mains and our desserts were tasty, well cooked and well presented. The service was efficient and pleasant. We’ll be back !

A very enjoyable lunch with friends. Friendly and helpful service combined with good cooking coming out of the kitchen made things memorable. A good effort at a difficult time for the hospitality industry.

Initial service had us slightly worried - slow to take drinks order and not telling us the specials. But then got much better - good table service, no long waits between courses and great food. We’ve booked to come back - says it all !

We had a very nice lunch at The Swan this week, the food was tasty, the staff were friendly and welcoming and there was a lovely atmosphere. I had buffalo wings as a starter, followed by Dover sole and chips, and a brownie for desert. It was all very good but I thought the price of the main course was far too much, £24 for just fish and chips with no salad or vegetables. If I return I will choose something different that is a reasonable price.

Pub has gone downhill in recent years. Over the years this would be my local of choice but not after this visit. Service poor, understaffed and disorganised. Food slow and very average. One burger and a Caesar salad hardly difficult but neither were very good. Not on my list to go there again soon
