Review on The Swan

The Swan is an independent leading Kent restaurant bringing modern dining to the lively market town of West Malling. The restaurant and bar combines stylish design and bespoke furnishings, creating a relaxed yet vibrant atmosphere.

Along with the sleek cocktail bar and restaurant, upstairs there is a lounge bar and three private dining rooms, perfectly suited for both social and business gatherings. In the warmer months, the elegant garden is open for diners, drinkers and events. The peaceful top terrace is the perfect wedding venue.

Open all day The Swan offers imaginative dining seven days a week. The brunch is one of the best served in the area; healthy options such as granola, caramelised grapefruit, fresh juices or classic dishes including eggs benedict, salt beef hash and a full English. The a la carte menu comprises robust and creative flavours, with a selection of grills and seasonal favourites. In addition, the midweek set menu also offers fabulous value.

The bar is an inviting place to meet at any time of the day with stunning cocktails, thoughtfully selected wines and great coffee.

    Great experience!

    We are on holiday from Puerto Rico, and our local friends brought us for dinner to the Swan, we had a wonderful experience. David and the staff were absolutely amazing, and the food was delicious. We hope to come back soon!

    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.
