Had an absolutely lovely night in The Swan, Westerfield tonight. There was a great 2 for 1 offer on Sunday Roasts so we opted on two beef roasts which was cooked beautifully with crispy roast potatoes and all of the trimmings to go with it. After reading mediocre reviews I was nervous about the outcome but couldn't fault the food... More

Nine of us went on a Saturday lunchtime for a family celebration. The restaurant was not full but the service was extremely slow with staff that had to be prompted all the time. Waited a long time for our first drinks then had to ask to have our food order taken. The same thing happened when we wanted to place... More

Food was superb and staff were excellent. Food for 15 was served at the same time except for mine which was about 5 minutes late. Because of this I was offered a free drink. Thoroughly recommend this pub and will definatly return. Top marks.

The Westerfield Swan was the venue of our annual morris team Christmas meal. We were very happy with the communications we had with the restaurant prior to the booking as we were a large party of 22 people and had specific requests in order to run our annual dinner. At the beginning of the evening we were introduced to a... More

Being part of Debenham Inns I would expect good quality food, and a sensible portion. I ordered Lamb stew, with Rosemary dumplings. Waiting for a steaming bowl of dark rich stew, I was presented with a small portion of very anemic stew, and dumpling without any flavour of rosemary what so ever. I have never seen such a pasty looking... More

The Swan is always busy but has the capacity to cope and there's a large outdoor area for the summer months. The service is efficient but not particularly welcoming. Line caught cod and chips is £12 and there's a varied menu for the more adventurous. For a family outing it's perfect but not for a romantic outing to impress the... More

Dined here at lunchtime yesterday with 3 work colleagues. I had pre-ordered from the Christmas Menu and had the smoked salmon starter which was delicious and the beef stew and mash for main which came with a variety of steamed veg, all very tasty and good. The prices for food were reasonable although my pint of diet coke was £3.45... More
