Review on The Swan

The Swan is located in the picturesque market town of West Malling. This handsome 15th Century Inn has been renovated with vision providing a warm and atmospheric venue. The decor, marrying old and new, is apparent throughout the site – Philippe Starck sculpted sofas with zinc and oak tables reside in the garden for use on warm days whilst unique pieces of antique furniture adorn the site.

The Swan always seeks to purchase locally sourced, seasonal produce. The classic English menu comprises Venison from Chart Farm, near Sevenoaks, Lamb from Alan West of West Malling and day catch from the boats coming into port at Rye and Whitstable.The skilful menu is modern British that is enjoyed by a loyal customer base comprising family, friends and businesses who can dine on brunch, set lunch, a la carte dinner or just savor some comforting bar snacks.

For diners who want to enjoy the ambience of the Swan but have less time the Swan also offers a Set Menu. From Monday to Saturday a two course lunch or dinner is £18 and a three course lunch or dinner is £21. This set menu is applicable up to 7pm.

Whether you are there to celebrate in one of the three beautifully appointed private dining rooms, eat in the restaurant or make use of the wedding licence, service is welcoming and knowledgeable.

    Best dining experience this year.

    Service was outstanding thanks to the care and attention of our waitress Alicia. We had the cerviche followed by monkfish. The food was cooked perfectly although might have benefitted from a touch more seasoning.

    I love the swan it is by far my favourite place to eat.
    went there recently for my birthday(at my request) it was much calmer than my previous visit as it was a Thursday. The waitress was lovely brought me out a birthday cake and sang to me!!
    lovely atmosphere and i like people watching as it does get some very loud characters in there!
