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.

I first visited a couple of weeks ago and had an outstanding experience. Fantastic food and service. Tonight was not up to scratch I'm afraid. My brother had to send back his venison as the mash was out of the fridge cold and there was no jous and my meal was mediocre. The waitresses seemed more interested in gossiping with the gentlemen at the bar than serving the customers which was a shame. So overall, not bad

Came in yesterday evening for a Christmas Meal in order to celebrate American Thanksgiving without having booked it properly, but luckily the restaurant was extremely obliging and it was no problem to order the roast turkey dinner with all the fixings. Delicious and great, friendly service, will definitely be back.

Thursday 24 March 2016. Food was a long time coming. When we left we discovered they had colouring etc for the children, but this was not brought to our attention so we could keep our two grandchildren amused during the long wait for the food. Most of the food was good/very good except the sausage and mash. The sausages were inedible - cooked/re-cooked so the outside was hard and tough. Did complain and they gave us £1.99 off the bill. This pub used to serve loads of vegetables with the meals; now we had to pay extra for veg for two of the meals (including the sausage and mash). Altogether a disappointing experience marginally alleviated by the bill reduction.

The food was exceptional and the table service was very efficient. The only thing that let down the whole experience was the slow bar service when we first arrived (not enough bar staff in my opinion). If that had been better, full marks would have been awarded.

Certainly wont be going again!! Service was very slow and they were not that busy, no vegetables on two of the main meals re poor value for money, one course the sausages was 3 of them and mash in a bowl!!!! for £10 you have to be joking, The stuffed pork was good but no veg just potato and 3 pieces of stuffed pork for £14!!! poor value again. Each time we had to ask for service and if we had not asked for the bill at the same time as we ordered coffee we would i am sure still be there!!! the two steak pies were good, credit where its due.

Everything was lovely as usual and very accommodating of my requests at booking, the only thing stopping it get full marks this time was the dessert-the chocolate and popcorn terrene just wasn't up to the usual high standards. Thanks for a brilliant night!

Lovely decor, good food and friendly staff. what more do you need? Slightly more expensive than an average pub, but it is worth it. The pub has a quiz on a Thursday evening, which was informal and fun to join in with.

Great food served with a smile! Although some items missing from the menu, presumable due to busy day? Fish & Chips were well received by our American visitors as well as the Staek & Ale Pie. Will be joining you again, soon!

We all enjoyed the food and the general ambience. The only reason why I've not awarded full marks is because I think they were a little understaffed so service was slow, however we still enjoyed our evening.

We had a lovely meal on good Friday. The staff were very friendly. There wasn't a problem when asked for no cheese crust on the chicken and it was still delicious. We would definitely go again.

Unable to review restaurant as kitchen was closed due to a gas issue. However the restaurant was efficient at communicating this to us. It is a shame that my guests had driven up from London and we to find somewhere else at short notice.

Excellent food and value for money. Staff were attentive while the surroundings were welcoming on a very cold evening. One or two dishes were off the menu which limited our starter choice.

Young staff were friendly but a little too keen to take our food order. Possibly as it was quiz night the night we visited & they wanted to get finished. Food good, portion size on large side. We would return.
