This was our first visit to the Swan and I must say if I was ever in the area again I would not hesitate popping in again. We were staying nearby by and so looking for nice places to eat in the area. When we read about the fact they serve American style food I have to say this really appealed. So on the Tuesday morning we made contact and a table was booked for that evening. The pub is set at the beginning of the high street on the left as you turn off the A355. When we arrived we found there was a friendly local welcome waiting for us. We sanitized our hands before being escorted to our table in the front part of the restaurant. I don’t know how many tables they had in this area but the one’s left were very well spaced out and they had screens up in between. Personally I was glad once again to see the staff without face shields or masks this really needs to catch on. It was also great to see the place very busy on a Tuesday evening with everyone supporting the hospitality industry and the #EATOUTTOHELPOUT scheme. We ordered a drink while we looked at the lip smacking menu. This consisted of burgers , wings , mac & cheese , sides , salads , nachos , sandwiches and of course desserts.
We decided to start with some Mozzarella Logs with a chilli jam and half a dozen Buffalo Wings. These were both amazing and you would have to go a long way to find anything better.
Now it was burger time and these were absolutely delicious. The Texan burger had a Pretzel Bun , bbq & ranch sauces , cheese , bacon and an onion ring. The Beautiful South burger is definitely one of the best I’ve had the pleasure of eating. A Brioche Bun filled with a fantastic piece of Buttermilk Fried Chicken , smoked cheese , hash brown , chilli jam & jalapeños. With this I had some amazing sweet potato fries. We accompanied these with the absolute heavenly Buffalo Mac & Cheese.

Now it was time for dessert and there was no disappointed here either as I enjoyed a truly delicious Oreo Sundae with oreo & vanilla ice cream , oreo biscuits & chocolate sauce. This was a fantastic way to round of the evening.

This was a fantastic first visit to the Swan and I would love to return some day. I would highly recommend a visit here especially if your a fan of American style food something as I said you would find it hard to beat once you’ve been here. I would also like to say thank you to Gina and all the team for looking after us and making us feel so welcome.
Ooooh it all looks good – especially those buffalo wings. I’m such a big fan of sweet potato fries too.
