Please can I just say firstly the food was spectacular. The best burgers we have ever had. Cooked to perfection as in not over done. Then your amazing team. Every person attending to us was marvellous. My daughter Emma who happens to have Down Syndrome said her meal was fantastic and told our waiter she wanted to see the chef. All I can say is it means the world to us that the young man who came out and spoke to Emma went above and beyond and deserves recognition for both being an amazing chef and a a fabulous person. We will now visit frequently as we only live in Boston Spa and had the most relaxing, stress free lunch ever. Thanks to you all xxx

Visited the Swan & Talbot for dinner with a friend. Everyone was very welcoming which made a lovely atmosphere. We both ate the steak pie which was excellent with delicious veg and fab home-made chips . I will definitely be going back and will probably order the steak pie again 😀 Jane

The surroundings were extremely pleasant and we were warmly greeted when we arrived. The food was excellent and the service very efficient and courteous. All our party of 4 enjoyed the experience and would look forward to dining again at the Swan & Talbot very soon.

We stopped off here for Sunday lunch on our way home to Manchester from the north-east and had a lovely meal. The staff were great, attentive without being over-bearing; the food was good and there was plenty of it (I rarely leave anything on my plate but couldn't manage all of it); there was a decent selection of beers although I only tried the one; the whole experience was very positive and we would certainly consider stopping in if we are ever in the area again.

Attentive and helpful staff who were very flexible with the menu for our elderley parents who had specific food requirements. Portion size was just right and the food was excellent. Service between courses was rather slow hence the 5/6 rating but the pub was quite busy it being the Saturday before Mothering Sunday and we were a party of 10 so some delay is to be expected.

The food delicious, the service could be better. I have been twice now, and have thoroughly enjoyed the food. The service not too good. First time was not offered the dessert menu or if we would like tea or coffee, too busy with the quiz! The second time asked for the bill and the young man went off and started pulling pints. Had to ask again.
