Lovely atmosphere and great food.My friend and I enjoyed the food, drink and service as usual. I like this place for catching up with friends as its cosy, always very popular but not noisy so you can have a good catch up. My only problem with this restaurant is that the menu doesn't change much which is a shame.18/04/2013 00:00:00Sunday lunchInteresting menu (apart from the standard "Sunday Roast" menu which was also offered). Our party had a selection from both, and enjoyed it all. A good upmarket "local pub" with a lovely garden for outside dining/drinking when the British weather permits!.14/04/2013 00:00:00School friends from all over, lunchThe choice was adequate, the food well presented and delicious to sample! We were left alone to chat and after we finished eating; in fact several stayed on to have afternoon tea!
Only one minus, one friend had a vinegar allergy which she mentioned while ordering, enquiring if vinegar was on the dressing - unfortunately it was in the ingredients of the dish itself but not in the dressing! They did provide another dish which they said we would not have to pay for but that was included on the final bill. Of course it was removed when I spotted it. So make sure you specify your allergies clearly and check the bill at the end otherwise an extremely pleasant venue in all respects and we will definitely met there again inspite of the mix up!08/04/2013 00:00:00Very good all-round experience.Went for a belated birthday lunch: food reliably good - had an excellent Christmas lunch last year with the crew; staff helpful and attentive - even noticed and retained pair of specs left accidentally for collection next day; overall impression very favourable, and recommended.16/03/2013 00:00:00Great food and very good serviceI thoroughly enjoyed the food, there was a good choice and prepared very quickly. We had a seat in the conservatory and it was a sunny day, so the setting was outstanding too.
I used top table to make a booking and it was soo easy. Was very impressed actually.
The only dissapointing thing about the overal experience was that when we came to tip the waitress and wanted to add this onto our bill (paid by cc), she said don't worry abou that, we don't tend to see the tips anyway! I was quite outraged to be honest, as we wanted to tip, but not if she wouldn't be benefiting!14/03/2013 00:00:00Thoroughly enjoyablePerfect dining experience, felt very welcomed with children. Beautiful dinner and sublime puddings.10/03/2013 00:00:00Birthday lunchA very enjoyable Sunday lunch was had for my Dad's birthday. The food was excellent with prompt service and friendly staff.26/01/2013 16:00:00Lived up to expectationsHad heard food was good and it certainly was. We appreciated the 5-aday and 'i' paper etc as you entered. Enjoyed sitting by the garden.04/01/2013 16:00:00The usual excellence!Our visit to the Swan was up to it's usual excellence. Always a treat with lovely friendly staff and food at it's best. You would imagine that the staff would have been worn out on Christmas Eve after a very busy December. It didn't show and they were all as welcoming as ever.
Nice one guys. Our thanks and best wishes for some R & R in the New Year.22/12/2012 16:00:00Fantastic food, great ambianceBooked a table for 7, very good service, fantastic food (roast dinners) and quite reasonable for the quality of the food.
Not far from town, tucked away of the roundabout, feels like a country pub without being miles away.22/12/2012 16:00:00could be betterEaten here a lot over the last few year but a little disappointed - not with the food but the preparation.
Three people three meals with starters and puddings, one pudding and starter that we ordered not available. It was 1230 on a Tuesday how could food on the menu not be available. It's Christmas and at 1230 on a Tuesday they run out of Pate and a comon sweet. Not very good although the food we did eat was nice, it was not what we wanted in some cases.
could do much better.17/12/2012 16:00:00Really friendly staff andReally friendly staff and great food. The pub is gloriously un-spoilt, still split into different areas making it feel alot more intimate than a large, open restaurant. The open fires were warm and welcoming on a cold evening and matched the atmosphere which was buzzing with conversation with most tables filled with happy diners.
Will definitely be back :)10/12/2012 16:00:00The Swan Inn in Newtown wasThe Swan Inn in Newtown was excellent. Went there for a birthday meal. There was 10 of us (including 3 children) and the service was brilliant even though they were extremely busy! Food was excellent too.15/04/2012 00:00:00
