This has been a beautiful venue and still serves good food but my experience last Sunday was miserable. We had booked at least one month in advance for a special family birthday gathering but the fun and pleasure was undermined by a 2 hour wait before our main course arrived. One guest even had to leave before the main course... More

Lovely setting, buzzing atmosphere in the bar....... Poor welcome. Ignored by one waitress, found a table by another waiter ( male with a European accent) who was by far the most pleasant member of staff. Made choices from menus then we were told we had 'chosen' from the wrong menu. We chose from the menus we were given!!!! Food was... More

We had been sent some vouchers as compensation for the poor service we endured on our last visit and booked for 7 of the family to have a Sunday lunchtime meal to commemorate our recently lost pet. With some trepidation I made the booking and have to say I am so glad we had. The service this time was first... More

The best Sunday lunch in a long long time. The beef melted in your mouth and the yorkshires were amazing. Ample portions my partner could finish hers, so obviously I was on hand.

Had Sunday lunch with the family at the swan recently and we really enjoyed the food although it took forever to come. They are a busy and popular pub but they really have to look at improving the service. Our table took a long time to clear and we waited over an hour for our main course.

Good British food in a great pub. Had a colleague from India over, so we decided to take him to a proper English pub for some grub. This was a perfect choice. Great menu both food and beer. Really good service.

The four of us visited to have a Saturday evening meal. Upon arriving, it's clear this is a nice pub and upon entering we found the place rammed. I quite like this. It adds atmosphere and shows it must be a popular place... and I can see why. We had the bread and oil, olives and onion humour as starters... More

We visited the area of Milton Keynes recently and after looking for somewhere to stop for lunch, stumbled across The Swan Inn's website. We thought it looked like a nice pub and had tempting menu so booked a table. The pub itself is very inviting, with attractive decor and a cosy warming fire. The staff we found, were pleasant, but...

Description
This Little Gem is a beautiful 13th century thatched country pub & restaurant, which has undoubtedly changed over the years, yet retains a wealth of original features & oozes a rustic, rural charm. (Just remember to duck when entering!) Our orchard beer garden is ready for summer & is the jewel in our crown. Have a nose around and you'll find all sorts of wonderful herbs and fruit, all of which are used in our kitchen... You'll find us in the heart of the original Milton Keynes Village, the perfect backdrop to savour our delicious menu. Everything is freshly made in our open kitchen and changes in line with the seasons, using the best local produce we can get our hands on, served in the comforting surroundings of our restaurant. Something to note... If you think your veggies are top of the crops then bring them along...we accept them as currency! Accompany your better half, family or whole party ...we cater for all, providing half portion sizes for children's meals, customized set menus for your party & un-intrusive service for those special nights out for two. Planning a shindig? Just let us know & we'll take all the hard work off your hands...(It helps that we love a party!) We can't fail to mention that we're a proper pub ...Boasting top credentials from Cask Marque, you'll find a nurtured selection of real ales in our bar (2 of which change weekly) along with some great lagers, premium spirits and a wine list as long as your arm! We're located just a stone's throw away from the centre of Milton Keynes, so whether you've had a day at the office, been cheering on your team at Stadium:mk or had a hard days shopping at thecentre:mk, we're the perfect spot to stop & recharge those batteries! We look forward to welcoming you soon! Wanida (General Manager)
