    I've been to the Swan at Whittington numerous times however this time was not as good as the other visits the staff were not as attentive as previous visits even though the pub was quieter. The menu could definitely do with an update and have way more choice too many items on the menu were only avaliable until 6pm for comparison the Bluebell in Worcester has a menu twice as big and the food is the same standard as the Swan. My partner and I were not impressed with the Swan on this visit and have decided not to visit again until the menu is updated and improved, also if you are in the NHS and have blue light they do not accept it on weekends which seems a strange policy as most other places that accept blue light do so 7 days a week

    Food was delicious, hot and a good portion. A little expensive, particularly the desserts but worth it as a special treat, especially as it was good quality fayre. It's a convenient location being near the motorway. We would have preferred a different seating area as we were a little disturbed by customers & bar staff passing by to get the bar or toilets. We have already booked to return later in the year.

    First time we'd visited the Swan. Good meet and greet. Quickly asked what we'd like to drink, which was delivered promptly. Good selection of food. Went for pork Sunday roast. Plenty of food, thankfully not excessive. Quality over quantity. Good experience. Recommended.

    We ate here for a family birthday. The menu is pub food as you would expect but it is of.a really good standard. The staff were helpful and friendly, the ambience is good and we had a lovely lunch. The portions are large. The only downside for us was that when we have eaten here previously it was table service- this time we had to order at the bar which detracted a bit but it didn’t spoil the lunch.This is not the cheapest pub food but it’s a better quality than most,

    Amazing food. Best prawn cocktail I ever had. Worth the money! Lovely roast dinner and extra gravy in the jug as requested. The only negative is the door behind kept open and close to outside when it’s cold outside. I would come back again. See you soon.

    We went to the swan me my husband my sister and mother. Three of us had a lovely meal that we could not fault but unfortunately my husband had a burger and it was made with onion that wasn't mentioned in the description and he doesn't like onion so had to send it back. They offered him another meal but he decided not to and they took his meal off the bill. They were very apologetic and tried to rectify it so I was happy with the service

    We have been going to the Swan for over 10 years and never had a bad meal. Unfortunately our last visit wasn’t great. The chicken and bacon salad, came with undercooked bacon, no avocado and no dressing. We’ll go back, we hope this was a blip!

    Lovely experience at The Swan. The pub has a great atmosphere, modern and stylish. The service is excellent, both bar staff and waiting staff. The Staff are prompt, friendly and efficient. The menu is varied, proving me with many Gluten Free Options. The food is delicious, good value and well presented. All Good.

    The food was nice, however the food and drink, especially the drink was expensive for what it is. Also I don’t like the automatic service charge that included on the bill. This isn’t the USA or even London who think we all live in the USA. Nothing against tipping but I will decided what and when to give it, not the restaurant. And I know they say it’s discretionary but a lot of people don’t like telling the restaurant to remove it, hence we know why restaurants are doing more and more now. My argument if it’s discretionary then don’t put it on. For this reason alone we are unlike to return.

    Food was nice, a little overpriced for what we received. Service was very slow and tool 25-30 minutes for plates to be clearer after main course. We were not asked if we would like any drinks despite empty glasses on the table.
