    Lovely morning, good selection for breakfast, I chose the full English which was great. The only thing was, I asked for it without beans and it was clear the beans had been on the plate but removed as there was sauce on the toast, sausages and egg.

    The White Swan is our local restaurant. Throughout the Lockdown they provided an excellent takeaway service which we used many times. Our first visit there since March didn’t disappoint. The restaurant has had a makeover and is very fresh and clean. Will & Jason are amazing hosts who work tirelessly to ensure everyone is happy with the food and the service. We visited again on 31st August when they were open for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner. Despite being fully booked all day and evening, Will & Jason remained calm, efficient and professional. The food as ever, was superb. What more is there to say except thank goodness The White Swan is only a ten minute drive away!

    Booked for breakfast and arrived on time to find that our table was not ready. Waited a further 10 mins to be seated. After 25 mins had to ask if someone would like to take our order, then waited another 20 mins for the breakfasts to arrive. The food was good and well prepared but after nearly an hour waiting we would have eaten anything. The service needs a serious rethink.

    Worst meal I’ve had there. All of our table's food tasted burnt. So much so we couldn’t eat it. Normally the food is fantastic, but not on this occasion. Will think twice before returning in the future.

    I visited the white swan on Sunday morning for a delicious breakfast, with my husband and two friends. The menu was excellent and the breakfast was very well presented and tasty. We although thoroughly enjoyed it and will definitely go back again. All safety measures were in place and I felt very safe. Beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean.
