Had an ok night but the black swan only sells ready salted and cheese and onion Walkers crisps at the bar, bit disappointed as I wanted salt and vinerger and/or scampi fries. Won't be going back in a hurry.More

Not sure it is possible to prepare a really poor plough mans but well done for succeeding admirably. Small salad, microwaved roll and slimy ham from a packet for £7.95. The description of crusty bread and home cut ham was a travesty. When this ham...More

I have visited The Black Swan on three occasions over the last six months. It appears to be popular with locals but I think they could work harder on their speed of service and the quality of their food. I ordered a 'proper pasty' which...More
