This is what all Village pubs should be like.

Visited recently with a table of 4 for sunday lunch and where a little hesitant as had read some of the recent slighly negative reviews and all i can seay is we where bowled over by the place, The food was amazing, cooked pefectly and great value for money.

For starters I had the Scotch eggs that where perfectly cooked with runny yokes, served on a bed of rocket with a lovely home-made tartar sauce which I though would be unusual, it turned out to have been one of the best starters I have ever had. The sausage meat was perfecly seasoned and the delicate tartar complimented it perfectly.

Each of our party went for different meats so we got to see the Beef, Pork and Lamb and they where all perfecty cooked with lovely fresh veg and lighty and fluffy Yorkshire puddings.

Desert for us was either the Sorbet, Ice cream or a tart for one of our party and like everything else the portions where great, everything tasted home cooked.

Bearing in mind our visit was during the Covid distance measures this is a business running perfectly with staff whop are friendly and attentive, I did notice there have been comments on other reviews about sticky tables but this is a common issue with some of the antibacterial products, and is simply dealt with by a napkin over the table.

I would certainly go again and look forward to my next sunday lunch at The Swan

BRILLIANT DINING EXPERIENCE

My friend and I visited on Wednesday during their Eat Out to Help Out promotion. We both had Braised Lamb as mains and Coconut and Pineapple Cake for pudding but a plate of Tempura Prawns and I had Whitebait for starters.

Delicious.

He was really happy with his choice, as was I. The whitebait was full of flavour and was clearly fresh. I’ve had fried whitebait many times but this sautéd approach really bright out the flavour. Whitebait is one of my all time favourite dishes and it’s a rare treat on a menu.

The lamb was sublime. Soft, no fat, film of flavour and with a really great gravy. We forgot to photograph the food it was so good.

We just couldn’t understand some of the strange and negative reviews over the last few weeks. The Swan once again delivered great food, and service regardless of the price.

I’ve eaten out a lot over the last few weeks, and some places have had poor COVID-19 protection and, understandably different menus to their norm, but here we had 5 or 6 choices for each course, which is amazing, more than enough for us to have to debate over. 3 courses for £10 - I couldn’t buy the ingredients for that cost.

My party of four visited The Swan this week for the eat out to help out promotion. The menu for this was small, but understandable given the pub is a small venue and was very busy with the offer.

I managed to have all my favourites - parfait, fish & chips and a chocolate pudding. It was exceptional value of three courses for £10.

The staff were very busy, polite and efficient. The Covid measures were excellent - all staff in masks, I saw the waitress wiping all tables, the arm rests and menus after each use and sanitiser stations are everywhere!

They offer individual sauce sachets - not my favourite but I appreciate safety over style these days and it all tastes the same!

I have since booked a table for six and I’m looking forward to revisiting over the bank holiday with my parents. Really recommend this venue for excellent food, service and atmosphere.

Visited for the Eat Out to Help Out Menu, the place was very busy but still managed to be seated on a lovely table with lots of social distancing around us. They had lots of measures in place and when we arrived we were given the low-down on the one way system, toilets etc... hats off to this place they have got it right!

As part of this deal they were offering a 3 course set menu for £10 and they then receive a government contribution. Whilst the menu was fairly small it had lots of dishes we all liked and we were especially happy with a sausage and mash and fish and chips as we had been saving ourselves all day. Good portions, well cooked, good staff.

Many restaurants have just added 50% discount to the bill but this alternative offer of a set menu allowed us to have more courses and sample lots more dishes which we really liked and for £10 its really good value!

Pretty country pub, light and airy restaurant. Couldn't fault it.

The barmaid was rushed over her feet and she was a star. The ranege of drinks is accpetable. The food was exceptinonal. Great food, A open wood fire which there is an art to feeding. It is a really nice place and the bar maid was so lovely given she had to run the place alone. The mens toilets the tap doesnt work! This is absolutley unaccpetable in todays terms espeically a joint serving food. No provisions for a disabled toilet. I do not recommend the Budwieser Budvar. It is one of the foulest I have ever tried.

Went there at lunchtime today with wife, and daughter. Wife chose the scallops, daughter the Hake, and I had the shin of beef. We were given generous portions of lovely food washed down with a bottle of red. Mustn't forget our lovely French waitress. Very charming and efficient.

Lovely day after a three mile walk. Good beer, nice decor and outdoor seating area. Attentive staff, one of whom provided the wrong bill before we had indicated we had finished. Could have sold another pint of Tiger!

It has been so nice over the last couple of weeks to be able to get a really good Sunday lunch. It's made lockdown more bearable and freed up our Sunday mornings from chopping and cooking. Now we've been able to get out walking and get home to a really well deserved plate of proper comfort food. Leaving us with clear heads and full bellies. Perfect.
