The whole experience was very nice, the staff were polite, the restaurant was very clay and welcoming. If there was a slight down side to the visit, I would say that the wait for the food was a little more than acceptable, saying that the restaurant was extremely busy.

In the picturesque village of Romsley, Halesowen, The Swallows Nest boasts well-loved British pub cuisine in a remote and tranquil destination, with fantastic country views. The rumoured ghost of an old landlady jealously guards the beautiful property and its ales. Your food can be enjoyed by the cosy log-fire, or in the garden, gifted with stunning views of Clent Hills and Waseley Hills.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Swallows Nest menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Swallows Nest ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

Deep in the West Midlands country, The Swallows Nest is 11 minutes’ driving to Hagley Train Station.

    The bar was crowded and the restaurant areas appeared understaffed, so we had to queue at the bar to get our table and thus joined the crowd of those buying drinks (which nearly went out of the door). Once we were seated it was nearly half an hour before we were able to order our food. When we alerted the waitress she told us she needed to talk another order and deliver some drinks before taking our order, although she then changed her mind and took our order (albeit her tone was quite brusque when she did).
    Everybody was happy with the quality of their food, except that when I asked if I could have a jacket potato (healthy option) with my steak, I was told that there weren't any left; however my dad was served a boiled potato (still with jacket on), so I can't understand why I couldn't have the same thing when the only difference is the way it was cooked.
    The price of the food was good value in my opinion. The carrot cake cheesecake was particularly good and not anything I'd had before, so that was a pleasant surprise.
    Once the food orders were taken service improved until asking for the bill, which took a long time (although that seems to be a common theme in restaurants where we eat out).
    In summary, the evening was reasonable but not as good as we were expecting (especially as my sister, who was also in our party, said she dines there quite often and usually finds the experience more positive). There were clearly short-staffing issues which seemed to cause most of the disappointing factors.

    The food was lovely Sunday lunch was cooked to perfection. Although we were sat at our table for 15 mins before the waitress came to take our order the food more than made up for it we will definitely go again.

    Disappointed with the quality of food and the service on this occasion. We have had better on other visits. We may try the swallows nest again as I really like the restaurant setting.
