    We really enjoyed out time at the white swan. The food was good and i like they have a vegan burger. Service was great; friendly and helpful. Good and clear guidlines for covid-19.

    Lovely first meal out post lockdown. Nice staff, good food, slightly clunky app ordering but nothing to stress over and all in all a great experience.

    We’ve been going to this restaurant since moving to the area almost 3 years ago. Never disappointed. Last night we went for my husband’s birthday. Sadly they had removed their only disabled parking bay but luckily it’s a quiet street so we were able to park outside rather than their carpark which is difficult to navigate for me. As a recent non meat eater, I was keen not to have chick peas etc. so checked the menu beforehand and chose halloumi fajitas. Goodness, these were absolutely delicious! One of the best meals I’ve had. My husband had whitebait and t bone steak which he assured me were both excellent. I then had Eton Mess Sundae which is my fav sweet. Our server was lovely. Very sweet and efficient. All in all the whole evening was lovely ?? We will be back!

    A great little pub serving food outside of the norm, an extensive menu featuring something for almost everybody. Seated in a cosy, relaxed, softly lit dinning area come bar and served by friendly but a little inexperienced staff we felt welcome, in-pressures and quite at home. The food, although slow to come out is worth the wait. I had bubble and squeak followed by baby ribs, the bubble was crispy on the outside and soft and full of flavour on the inside, and as for the ribs, we’ll, you could just pluck the bones out, soft tender and a again great flavour, a touch too much sauce though. My wife had a ribeye steak, cooked to perfection, medium rare, served on a bed of sweet red onion support by hand cut skin on fries. While the steak was cooked very well there was very little seasoning to bring out the flavour of a good price of meat, chef, salt is not all bad! Back to the service, slow, don’t think you’re in for a quick meal then off out for the rest of the night, it’s a night in at the White Swan, no bad thing, The severs however do need to focus a little more on the details and watching the tables, perhaps one bar staff who takes people to the table and sorts the bills too and one server who also needs to push the kitchen pace too?

    What a wonderful experience: food good that was all freshly prepared. An extensive range of gluten free options for my wife who is a coeliac.

    We wanted a local pub offering a warm welcome and a traditional Sunday lunch. The Swann at Woodnewton offered us everything we required. Staff were helpful and professional.
