    Food was great - better choice of starters for non-fish/seafood eater0 Ravioli was v good

    Main waitress was v good but some not as knowledgeable as on previous visits

    Wine prices seem to have gone up significantly and
    As a cheeky cheese glutton I think your standard offer should be 3 choice as 2is impossible from your selection and I always finish up paying extra!

    Went for Sunday lunch with friends. For me, The White Swan has the perfect match of stunning food in an unpretentious comfortable lovely old building. The service is superb, especially the enthusiastic guide through the amazing cheese board! The food is always excellent, my particular favourite was the slow cooked egg with bacon and morels - total nirvana. Will definitely be making the trip up from Manchester again soon.

    The White Swan is a cosy little Gastro pub however the food far exceeds anything that you would expect from a Gastro pub and is more quality fine dining restaurant standards. There is a limited choice on the menu with three starters and three mains, I believe this adds to the quality and perfection of the food served, however our experience of eating there was absolutely fabulous. The staff are extremely friendly and the atmosphere is cosy, we did eat early and it did seem to be getting very busy as we were leaving about 8.30pm we will definitely be returning and I would suggest to anyone that it is a fabulous eating experience to dine at the White Swan and cannot recommend it enough.

    Great service. Even greater food. I loved the whole experience. We will be back 5*.

    Relaxed pub vibe but with Michelin standard food. What the chef does in the kitchen for the money charged is incredible. Impeccable and friendly service. One of our group is coeliac and they went out of their way to modify their menu to suit.
