Pretty Bad
  2 / 10
Low quality food at a price that makes you feel ripped off. The place feels badly managed and I would definitely avoid. To be fair they do have the worlds smallest bin in the gents which is becoming something of an attraction in itself. "Marvel at how many hand towel can be stuffed inside, it must be magic!"

A Great Place for Lunch/Dinner Anytime
  10 / 10
A party of six visited the Swan for Sunday lunch. The atmosphere is great, the staff attentive and professional(nothing was too much trouble) and the food was freshly cooked and amazing. I would definitely visit again. On enquiries regarding the meat on my plate, I was even advised where I could purchase some. The waiting/bar staff were mainly young people, but were extremnely knowledgeable about the menu. All in all a wonderful value for money experience.

staff in bar could be friendlier
On arrival at the Swan, we went to the bar to order drinks, but the two staff behind the bar did'nt seem to want to serve or even acknowledge us arguing over who should do it, we asked about our table we had booked told ''it's through there''we were told and we had to find our own menus and we were so squashed up a corner it was rather intimate to say the least. One of our group got up to inquire if there was a table in the restaurant and we then went through there, what a difference!! these staff members were polite and welcoming couldn't do enough for us, I will go back to the Swan but only in the restaurant and avoid the bar totally.Luckily the food was good albiet expensive.

Shame on the Management!
  1 / 10
Had to teach my meat to swim, broccoli was yellow, veg cold and having sent back my chocolate pear tart because it was stale and having it replaced with an equally stale one I was overcharged.

Definately on my black list of places never to visit again. :(

After complaining about the food any good Manager or Chef would have come to see us but no they hid - obviously know the food wasn't any good!
