I've given The Swan a bad review because I ordered roast beef and Yorkshire pudding. It was warmed up, the Yorkshire pudding was a lump of soggy batter, the roast potatoes were hard solid, the carrots were luke warm and soggy, the frozen peas were...More

this is part of a chain so don't expect too much, the food was nice as was the beer but they were understaffed and there was some confusion with the food but all in all reasonable, worth a visit for the beer garden.

We came here because we were dissatisfied with the service at The a Ferry Inn just along the road. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal, even had a dessert. We visit HORNING regularly, we'll be eating here rather than the Ferry Inn in future.

Quick visit as we popped in for lunch while passing on the boat. Pub is in a beautiful location and the food was decent. I felt the ham egg and chips was overpriced but the fish and chips was excellent.

Staff were pretty friendly and beer was alright but all four of our meals were below average. The calamari and koftas that we had were soggy and tasteless (suspect they were just microwaved) and our hungry friend left his scampi and chips. Disappointing.

After having a wonderful weekend here earlier in the year, my husband and I travelled up to bring our children to have lunch here. We booked a table for 2pm but it was quickly apparent that they had a severe lack of staff. We had...More
