Visited for the first time for Sunday lunch. Food was really good and setting and atmosphere are hard to beat. Would recommend anyone to visit. We took our 15 month old who was more than happy playing in the garden, although there was no childrens menu. Friendly staff who were helpful and warming creating a very relaxed atmosphere.

Went here for Sunday lunch after searching Google for dog friendly pubs in Market Harborough, it was a couple of miles drive out the town but well worth it. The Swan is one of the nicest pubs I have been in for a long time, all staff were extremely friendly with a warm welcome. The food was first class with great service and I would highly recommend to anyone.

I recently went there with family, and while the menu had a wide variety of food, which was very nice. They only had one person working behind the bar and serving so the service was very slow at times when trying to order and paying our bill. Would definitely visit again despite this, especially as the pub welcomed dogs.

This is the 3rd time I have eaten at the Swan since the new ownership. I was anxious to be eating out anywhere on a bank holiday weekend but they lived up to their usual high standard of food and charming service. The roast beef is what I call proper meat, actually carved from a joint and not prepacked grey, unidentifiable 'meat'. Super selection of accompanying vegetables and good horseradish sauce too! Had to order a pudding - well who can resist syrup sponge, custard and icecream? Another nice touch - chocolate coated caramels presented with the bill :D We shall be very happy to come back soon. Thank you again.

A friendly place, with excellent food and friendly service, the owners spend the time getting to know their guets

Yet again we have just had a perfect lunch in friendly surroundings with excellent service. Our starters of lambs liver on toast and aparagus with walm poached egg were truly delicious. Mains; Carbonara and a curry, were also beautifully cooked and presented. We were to full to have a desert but the cheese cakes on the next table were truly tempting. Lovely place we keep going back to again and again. They never let us down and we feel are truly the best in the area.

Have been several times recently after reading reviews on Trip Advisor and we have never been disappointed. The menu is interesting and yummy at the right price. The wine menu has some really great reds on it and the presentation is great. Service is always with a smile, no matter which members of staff you are served by (and it will be more than one of them per visit).
Sunday lunch menu was very popular with the large group we took in and all of our meals were served up hot in generous portions. It's not a very well-kept secret though, (don't worry, the tables are nicely spaced out) so you will have to book.

What more can I say! We visited The Swan this evening after reading good reviews on TA and it really was lovely, the landlords were very friendly and the pub is very welcoming and cosy. We could not fault the food the lamb and mint suet pudding was particularly good washed down with a lovely Rioja which was served at a perfect temperature. Thank you for a lovely evening and for fitting us in. We would totally recommend this pub to anyone.

I chose the Swan to visit for my 30th Birthday meal. I'd never been before but having checked out the website it looked nice and the meal pricing seemed reasonable.
I would highly recommend a visit. The atmosphere was really welcoming, the staff couldn't be more helpful, the food was excellently priced and delicious! My boyfriend had the Lamb suet pudding (a special) and he was very complimentary about it. I had the steak and ale pie and that too was lovely, the portions are a good size and very good value for money.The whole party of 8 all thoroughly enjoyed their meals and we definitely plan to go again! We have recommended to all of our friends.

Another great meal at The Swan. Nothing too much trouble, on ordering I did not fancy the vegetables offered with the main course and was offered another choice - brilliant. All cooked perfectly and great wine suggestions from the friendly staff. A great night out.
Overall atmosphere is pleasant, thanks to all the attentive staff. and we will defiantly be back.

The staff at the Swan Inn are very friendly and helpful, nothing is too much trouble. The menu has traditional as well as unusual items. Our food was excellent and we will definitely go again. We walked there with our dog, but it would be a good place to go for an evening meal.

Well this is a great place, we have had 3 very good meals here. Excellent service & very friendly staff. The owners certainly make you feel very welcome. We are now calling this place our local, even though we live a few miles away. Recommend this place to everyone.

Excellent
We met here as a family for my partners parents 30th wedding anniversary as it was central to all of us.
We drove an hour and half to get to the Swan and all I can say is “wow” the place is very clean, the food was excellent, but more than anything I couldn’t fault the staff. They couldn’t have been more helpful.
Nothing else to add, the other reviews speak for themselves.
Fantastic

We ate here for the first time on Saturday night and really enjoyed it. The landlord and the rest of the team were all very friendly and made us feel welcome. The food was great - all fresh and tasty.

Booked here for 8 of us for my fathers 80th birthday on the back of the positive reviews from Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. From the moment we arrived we were treated wonderfully, nothing was a problem. 1st rate customer service which is sadly lacking in the hospitality industry. Wonderful food, beautiful location and the interior was beautiful and very tastefully decorated. Thank you to the lovely ladies that looked after us and for helping make dads birthday an occasion to remember. I would encourage everyone to visit here, you won't be disappointed.

Easter Sunday busy place and you get worried of there standards of food and service, but what a great choice all was a great and real English experience with great atmosphere and the food was the real deal, a great Roast beef with all the trimmings extra gravy, dessert of warm sponge and custard to die for.
You will see us again
Thank you

Ever since Johanna and Tremain took the Swan over, it has got better and better. It is a lovely place to visit, with a calm feel about it and delicious food and a good choice of drinks.
We try to go once a month at least and we wouldn't do that if we didn't like it - can't say anything better than that about a place.
Well done to everyone at the Swan.

We had a great meal out on Easter Saturday
My steak was succulent and the pasta dish my mother in law had was excellent. My wife had the lamb chops which again were lovely. All the veggies that came with the meals were cooked to perfection. There is a good selection of wines and the beers are always well kept and served.Would recommend this pub to anyone looking for a good meal out which is tasty, excellent quality and good value for money.
We came here for a family gathering over Christmas too and had a lovely time where nothing was too much trouble for the staff. The whole family remarked on the great atmosphere and the attention to detail from the chef and the staff.

I've been going to the Swan on and off for years and was aware of new management but hadn't found time to try out. The rapid rise up the TA charts seemed to be on the back of lots of first time reviewers which is always slightly disconcerting but anyway ...... Overall experience very good indeed. Service and presentation both excellent. Traditional starters and mains with a contemporary feel, dessert really good, had the assiette, wife thought best dessert for ages , and we eat out a lot. Will be going back. Also excellent value for money IMO.

We went to The Swan Inn today to celebrate a 70th birthday. We had a very warm welcome from Jo and Trem.
There was a lovely big log fire and the food was excellent. We all had different meals, ham egg and chips, fish and chips, pie and chips and burger and chips. The presentation was very very good. I have never tasted a burger so nice and steaky!.
Will definitely be going back there ! thank you x

We had a brilliant lunch at The swan, we live in Lincolnshire and our family is in Staffordshire. We met my brother and sister-in-law at the Swan for my husbands birthday. The setting is great, the food was wonderful and everyone was so helpful and friendly. What more can you ask from a pub, good food, good drink and good company. It was the first time we visited today but it will not be the last. Great place.

This is our local. We haven't been frequenting it perhaps as much as we should but as we have been at home for the past week we have popped up the pub for a couple of meals and been really pleased. My husband was also really impressed with the beer which he thought was very well kept - at least that was his excuse!
The Swan is welcoming, attractive and clean serving good pub food - both Jo and Trem have been super hosts. We have tried various options on the menu, all have been full of flavour and well presented. I would especially mention the T bone steak, something I haven't had in years but I felt the dog would be in luck if I didn't eat it all. The dog wasn't lucky, it was delicious, properly pink on the inside and well browned and caramelised on the outside, with great chips and nice fresh green leaves it was perfect. Good puddings and some delicious pudding wine too. We're very fortunate to have such a great pub just around the corner.

This is definitely the best pub grub in and around harborough. Since being refurbished last year this pub is now cosy and welcoming and the food just keeps getting better! My husband had the steak and ale pie and i had spaghetti carbonara which were both lovely. The service is excellent and the atmosphere(especially in the winter) is lovely with the log fire and lots of candles and low lighting. A real gem.
