Square Meal Review of The Swan ?

This one-time, 15th-centrury coaching inn has scrubbed up well & now looks good as an appealing contemporary brasserie – indeed, there’s not much left of the old place save a few beams. A fashionable, neutral-toned makeover mixes hard surfaces (stainless steel, granite & wood) with softer fabrics, while a see-and-be-seen buzz resonates throughout the two lively bars & the additional floor space set aside for dining. The kitchen deals in the kind of comfort-zone, modern British cooking that keeps things simple & fresh, as in new-season lamb teamed with lavender potatoes, spinach & roasted shallots, or perhaps fillet of pink bream with a Med-inspired accompaniment of chilled gazpacho & red basil pesto, followed by raspberry & mascarpone millefeuille. A large shaded terrace out back beckons when the sun shines.
