Booked a table of 4 on Good Friday in the Brasserie to celebrate my mums birthday. We were lucky enough to be given the table in the window (front of the Brasserie) so could watch the world go by on the high street. The service was good, as always, the food delicious. Well presented, and very tasty. There were a... More

We've been to this restaurant numerous times at lunchtime and evenings. The serving staff are always helpful and quick to serve, which is useful if you are having a pre-cinema meal. The menu is extensive and the food is excellent. A useful extra is a free carpark if you collect an exit token from reception on the way out.

Very well decorated Inside, relying on a nice and professional service, The Swan will charm you upfront. Even though served dishes had nothing to crave about (especially steak which is famous here but disappointing me as quickly turning dry), food was nice anyway. Special Wednesday night with almost half price steak and wine offered. Good value for money

We ordered inside and there were plenty of staff outside regularly clearing tables. We had two homemade GF cakes which were delicious and a nice... More
