With a fairy-lit beer garden to enjoy on balmy summer evenings, The Swan – Milton Keynes is a restored pub & restaurant in the peaceful village of Woburn Sands. Serving a menu of unfussy yet flavoursome modern British pub food, the restaurant is dotted with candle-lit tables and its roaring log fire & exposed red brick wall make it a rustic retreat away from the bustle of the town nearby.

Sourcing ingredients from trusted local suppliers, The Swan menu features wholesome recipes based around the garden, land and sea. Sample hand-pressed burgers, beef & ale pie with cardamom carrots, or sea bass with potato gnocchi, while old-school puddings include warming crumbles, custard-lathered sponges and decadent brownies. Not forgetting younger diners, a kids’ menu includes miniature versions of British classics.

A partnership with the celebrated Rothschild wine merchants means The Swan – Milton Keynes cellar is stocked full with an eclectic list of world wines, while indulgent wine flights allow guests to sample a variety of bins. Seasonal beers and barrel-kept ales also feature, as well as thirst-quenching cocktails and rich coffees.

The Swan in Milton Keynes is a 12-minute walk from Woburn Sands Rail Station.

    We had to stand and wait almost an hour before being seated even though we had booked, not good for my elderly mother on mothering Sunday, our drinks order was forgotten and they had run out of my Father's choice for both starter and main.

    Our booking was 17:45 and we didn't leave until 21:30.

    Not the best experience.

    I went to check that the restaurant would accommodate a wheelchair and found that the staff were very friendly and helpful. I chose the table that I wanted and took away a menu to show my guests We had a very good dinner there in very comfortable surroundings

    This was the worst dining experience I have had in some time.
    On arriving we were seated and told that there were quite a few mains that had run out.Including sea bass they we both wanted. We couldn't find a main we liked so opted for two starters each. Again three items were off by which time we were getting a little fed up.
    My friend chose scallops with bacon. They arrived with black pudding which she doesn't like so were sent back. Her other choice was prawns which apparently tasted distinctly off and so were left.
    Being quite hungry still by this point we went for dessert.
    I fancied the cheese board which on the menu had four cheeses.We were told there was only one. How can a cheese board have one cheese on it ?
    I ended up with cheesecake which I didn't really want.
    If I had served this food at home to my friends I would have been embarrassed.
    We overheard the next table complain that their food was cold.
    The waitress I have to say was very attentive and apologetic for the kitchen and couldn't be faulted.
    So in summary. Appalling and won't be going back. Ever.

    We ordered a sunday roast. The portion was very very small in every way - will definately not order that again. We felt we paid a lot of money for a very simple meal.
