    Service was exceptionally slow despite the fact that it wasn't particularly busy. We waited a full hour for one course of food and tbh we were on the verge of walking out. When finally the food did arrive the presentation was exceptional, as was the flavour, couldn't fault it, but no-one should have to wait an hour for their order.Unfortunately we didn't have time for dessert. I'd love to recommend this pub but until the staffing issues are sorted (if you have 2-3 hours to spare for lunch you won't be disappointed!) But we won't be back unfortunately 😔

    It is very good. Food is wonderful and hot. it is a lovely place. The only downside is it took a long time to wait for the food to be delivered, about 45 minutes. We booked in at 12.45, and the food came just after 1.30. I know that it was freshly cooked , and very good, but i think that the wait was a bit wee long.

    Very pleasant and scrupulously clean setting in the conservatory with tables well spaced. Tasteful tableware including linen napkins. The food was flavoursome, and beautifully presented. Plenty of choices on the menu. The waiting staff were smartly dressed polite and attentive- very professional. This is definitely a place to return to soon

    Lovely food but service was very slow. The restaurant was not busy so assume this was due to a lack of staff. Staff were pleasant enough but wait was long. Also no wine list available and waitress had to keep going back and forth to answer our couple of questions about available wine.

    Excellent, attentive service. Waiters regularly asked if we wanted more drinks. We went at about 1.00 which was reasonably busy but food was still well timed - not slow but not rushed. Food itself was delicious. Perfect Sunday lunch!

    It was far too noisy, very large party who should have had a private room, no soft furnishings so noise just bounced around, could not hear ourselves talk. Food very average and for a small menu too many things not available, white wine not chilled

    Incredibly poor and slow service. After waiting 15 mins to place our order, our breakfast took a further 35 mins to arrive. We wouldn’t have minded, if the food had been as good as we’d expected but it was disappointing - black pudding cooked in oil not hot enough so soaked in, bacon overcooked, eggs were over cooked on the bottom and hardly any white. They did an odd twist on baked beans, which is the pub’s choice but seemed a weird thing to do with a staple breakfast item. Toast wasn’t served with butter so by the time it arrived the toast was cold. No one came to check if we were enjoying our meal. All in all a huge disappointment.

    Had an enjoyable Sunday lunch with my family . Food was excellent as was the service . The Yorkshire puddings were amazing and a generous helping of meat . The kids portion was enough for my grandchildren ages 3ams 5 with additional Yorkshires . The setting was wonderful inside as was the garden area . Will definetely recommend going there

    The food was good, quite disappointed with the belly of the pork as it was undercooked, but it will be very hard to cook it as a piece of it is huge. The deserts were really nice. Lovely set up and surrounding, and really good service

    I organised an afternoon tea with some work colleagues. We get together around once a month, and we have gone to other establishments that offer afternoon tea. Quick service to start with from the young lass, then the sandwiches came out. Not what I was expecting, 3 finger sandwiches and that’s it 😳 where were the hot little sausage rolls or even a few crisps on the side, so that was very disappointing. So that course was taken away and the the sweet course was brought in, we had to ask for additional plates and knives to cut our scones, now that was a winner. Beautiful light cakes, flavoursome and scones still warm. Delicious 😋 we upgraded to a glass of prosseco. Well that was as flat as my chest. I would definitely come back for the cakes

    This was our first time visiting. I happened upon The Swan whilst searching for somewhere to go on google. When we arrived we were very pleased with what we saw. It is a beautiful place. A perfect mix of old & new decor. The old features of the building have been very professionally & respectfully complimented with a contemporary look. We were very quickly seated at a lovely table with very comfortable chairs. The menu was small. I like this, as I'd rather see a small menu of well prepared food, over a large menu of a lower quality. Unfortunately, on this occasion, all bar one fish dish was unavailable due to supply issues. In the current climate, I understand that. My wife doesn't like fish anyway, and I was more than happy to choose something else from the Summer Menu as it all sounded really good. Our order was taken for drinks first, & a few minutes later for the food. We ordered the pork croquettes & scotch egg for starters. The ploughman's and burger for main. We shared the starters. In my opinion, I have to say that the starters were quite possibly two of the best starters I've ever had. Especially the scotch egg. Beautiful. Our mains were also lovely. My wife couldn't finish her ploughman's, but she enjoyed every mouthful. All of the food was very well presented, & piping hot when it came to the table. My wife had a Coke & half a Tiger. She said that the Tiger was a little bland, but nothing worth complaining about. She used to run a pub, & keep a cellar so she knows her beers. Most people, including me, probably wouldn't have noticed any difference, but most of us aren't beer professionals. I had an American Pale Ale. It was cold, it was wet, it was refreshing. I liked it. If I'm to split hairs, the only minus was that we had to wait for a while for the bill. That's the only thing I can pick at, & that's no big deal. All of the staff were super friendly, & very well presented. We had a wonderful relaxing meal, and will definitely be returning.

    Sunday lunch was gorgeous! Waitress was helpful and efficient. Lovely atmosphere and large portions. Will try the mid week menu as it looks terrific. Must be hard running such a large venue in the current hot weather yet producing brilliant meals for such a lot of delicious meals.

    We were absolutely surrounded in wasps in minutes of being outside and the girls were brilliant bringing citronella candles and setting up wasp traps to try and help us. Also a young boy brought out 6 year old paper to help keep her occupied and we were made to feel really welcome. We will be back and I can't wait
