We decided to try the shared ploughman's meal. We bought 2 pints of lime and lemonade for £6.30. Not a good advertisement to stick to soft drinks. We did not have to wait too long for our meal but were very disappointed with its content. One sausage, a pork pie, a sausage roll, a gherkin,a pickled onion, sliced apple and a few chunks of ordinary tasting cheese with a few slices of bread, no butter included but brought when we asked for some. We had to ask for pickle,which to me is ridiculous… Read Full Review

When arranging to meet friends in Pangbourne on 25 Sept 2011 they suggested the Swan as they had visited some years before! Upon arrival we were able to secure a table on the terrace overlooking the Thames, on such a lovely day a real treat! It was early lunchtime and not yet busy. We were meeting for a roast & on offer were Beef and Chicken, with veg, potatoes, yorkshire puds - all that you would expect! Disappointing is an understatement, the beef was smothered in gravy so much so that… Read Full Review

From the roadside The Swan looks really inviting. An historic river-side English pub, it looks the perfect location. We arrived at about 4:30pm on a Tuesday 9th August 2011. There were about 20 other customers in the place. We ordered two kid's meals - Scampi & Chips and Sausage & Mash, and two adult meals - Surf & Turf burger and Ham, Egg & Chips. With two alcoholic drinks and two soft drinks the total came to just under £50. The food arrived after about half an hour, and that's when we… Read Full Review

Went for a Sunday lunch on 22 may 2011. Have been before for a ploughmans lunch where the so called fresh bread was stale and inedible, fell apart when you attempted to spread butter on it. Have ordered other meals and been dissatisfied . When we went to pay we were asked if we enjoyed our meal, we told them we didn't and told him what was wrong with it. He replied " oh well ".
We haven't been in for a while, thought it might be different for a Sunday lunch. Only one option for a roast, that… Read Full Review

Staying at weirview across the road - service was awful and slow - charged extra when they didn't have the item we wanted even after paying. Basically expensive, badly managed, stroppy staff, pretty damn awful... Pretty location frankly badly served by dodgy pub… Read Full Review

This once great pub seems to have continued it's slide into total mediocrity.
We used to live in Pangbourne years ago and although, in our time there the pub went through many changes of hands, it was always a great place to visit.
Over the past few years, on many return visits to the area we have on several occasions popped into the swan and each time the experience gets worse.
We are not looking more than a simple pub meal and a pint or two of decent beer, not too much to ask of a pub you… Read Full Review
