We visit The Swan maybe 2-3 times a year on the way back from sailing. We've never had a bad meal here and this latest visit was no exception. I had the rump steak off the "value" menu I think and I can honestly say it was one of the best I've ever had. It was perfectly grilled on the... More

Excuses from the waitresses but no real explanation. Hoping the food turns up at some point soon or will go home and... More

Do not have the risotto, it was a bowl of rice, peas, prawns with no flavour and overcooked seabass. It was horrible! All the food was overlooked and service was slow. However, the staff were pleasant. Our visit was on a February Sunday evening and the restaurant felt very cold and took awhile before I dare take my jacket off.... More

Had a lovely meal at this venue equivalent to any high class restaurant anywhere. Plenty of variety in the menu choice. Pleasant staff. Service was a little slow but made no difference to us as we were in no hurry.
