user reviews of the White Swan, Stow-cum-Quy

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

The White Swan was fairly quiet on our New Year's Day visit. There were just 3 other drinkers present. But the main bar area is quite cosy. The 2 regular ales are Adnams Ghost Ship & Tring Side Pocket For A Toad. 2 guests were Turpins Meditation & Crafty Beers Sauvignon Blonde. They also had 2 ciders from Franklins - Fuddle & Gasper. Recommended.

The White Swan is a traditional village real ale Free House which has recently changed ownership and is now being run by Gerry Skews and family. We went to dinner there on Good Friday and thought it was brilliant! Our host in the restaurant was Martin who provided a really excellent, friendly and attentive level of service without being overbearing. He was well-informed about all the food and drink on offer and went out of his way to ensure that one of our party, who is currently expecting, had all her questions answered with regards to the suitability of different items on the menu.

The food was all fresh, tasty and really well-prepared. We saved room for dessert and I can highly recommend the mixed assiette that we sampled on the night. We went for beer over wine with our meal (although there was a bottle of Italian red on offer that we will definitely be going back to try) and the Norman Gold was a real find – brewed in Northern France by an English gent, they will be offering other bottled beers from the range in the near future. Also on the pumps were Woodforde’s Wherry, Oakham’s JHB, Adnams Southwold Bitter and another real ale whose name escapes me for now.

After a thoroughly enjoyable evening, we had a quick chat to Gerry, the owner, on our way out. He asked for our feedback and we suggested a few minor cosmetic changes. Gerry said that the team had decided to concentrate on getting the food and drink right first as the rest would follow. They’re right of course and what’s more, they’re well on their way. We’d heartily recommend an evening in the White Swan (they do a bar menu too), even if it means we have to book further in advance next time!

Ditto Star fish (the previous reviewer) couldn't agree more.
I imagine this is very much a locals pub but strangers like myself are made very welcome by the Landlord and his staff.
Four ales to be had. Oakham JHB, Woodforde Wherry, Southwold Bitter and a trial beer from France, Le-brewery's Norman Gold 4.9%. Tasted like a very good English ale.
Good size Sunday roast at £8.50.
Will definitely return.

May 2011 Excellent Real Ale, generous, well cooked & presented pub food. Very friendly staff and Landlord. Made us feel very welcome. Would go again.
Traditional Pub, not a modern makeover without any character.

Good selection of cask ales and homemade food at very reasonable prices. Sunday Carvery. Parties catered for.
