Not quite sure why there's not a dedicated thread for this place already, but here we go. I've only eaten at The Swan a couple of times, but have been there on many ocassions; usually on the Live @ The Swan nights, all of which have been bloody ace. I don't go into town much generally due the high percentage of arseholes, but I will go to a good music night at The Swan. Anyway...the reason I'm posting this is that a few weeks ago (early Nov) my mum came over to see me from Spain. I was trying to think of where to go for food, then remembered that db on this here forum had been to the 25 quid meal deal thing. 2x steak meals (which can also include salmon steaks/gammon and something else) or a choice of 3 or so beef cuts. Well....it was A* on all counts. The staff were all lovely...attentive but in no way obtrusive.....the food and wine were delicious...and the fact that it was only 25 quid was the icing on the cake. We both had ribeye and big chips and we had to get a doggy bag cos there was so much. The Spanish waiter (who my mum had been chatting up with her lingo) made a swan out of foil with the rest of our food in it! Brilliant! Well done all!
