Visited this evening, family and puppy. We were all well treated! All the staff were great from arrival to departure. Food was really good and the bar staff were very attentive to all our needs. It wasn't busy but not a typical night everyone goes out. Have booked family lunch Boxing Day so people and dogs can be catered for... More

The Swan is fairly local and we used to visit occasionally some time ago and were not too impressed with service or food. However, things have changed and I suggest it's in the kitchen. We have eaten there several times recently and the food is of good quality and very nicely cooked. The fish is absolutely delicious. We haven't been... More

On arrival, we had to wait 30 minutes for drinks, 1hr 30 minutes for starter. 2 hrs for main course. There was only 3 of us, to be told they were serving a table of 16 first. We had arrived before this too, & were not informed of any delays. My main course was a burger, which was over cooked,... More

40 years ago this was a bikers pub of some notoriety. Nowadays it's a gentrified pub/restaurant with some appealing dishes and a busy, classy atmosphere. Quicker service would have got it 5 stars.

Met friends here at the weekend and was impressed; good and attentive staff and lots of options for veggies. Even the deserts that are vegetarian are marked on the menu (very unusual)! We nearly all had the roasts and while the Yorkshires were huge the portion size of vegetables (a sprig of broccoli, one single stick of carrot and two... More

A meal for 4 with friends, enjoyed in a good atmosphere, with plenty of elbow room. The food was very good, tasty and well presented. There was a bit of a delay with the food due to a large party in at the same time, but our Waitress kept us fully informed, so that was not a problem. Everyone must... More

I was in search of wifi and discovered excellent cuisine. Pan Fried Salmon with on a very tasty mash bed with a Larson or two to lift the flavours. I tried a Rumanian Sauvignon but it was a little sweet so reverted to a Pinot Grigio, good standard for light lunches.
