The service at this restaurant was very slow - I don't mind waiting for the food to be served but had to find the waiter for another round of drinks and again for our sweets. When he collected our plates the waiter asked if there is anything else we wanted and we ordered more drinks but he did not bring... More

We took our 3 terriers with us no problem, plenty of other dogs in there already, and had a lovely meal with very good quality food from a very varied menu offering. My favourite meal out in Sway.

We visited Sway for our Ruby Wedding celebration week. Eight of us enjoyed a fabulous meal and excellent hospitality, early evening on a Saturday. The atmosphere was so relaxed with wonderful soft sofa as a window seat. The portions are enormous, and the quality amazing value for money. The three young guys behind the bar were unfailingly attentive, helpful and... More

Ate here whilst staying at Cottage Lodge Hotel in Brockenhurst - really lovely atmosphere and great value for money. We had the five bean chilli and the roast and they were both delicious - huge portions and so reasonably priced. Loved the quirky decor and attention to detail, too.
