The Swan Inn

Swan Green, Emery Down, Lyndhurst, SO43 7DT

“Good food & Dog Friendly”
We stopped at the Swan after driving past and noticing it said "dog friendly" on the sign out front,so turned round and stopped with our two boxers.

We both enjoyed our meals and kudos for advertising dog friendly as it's awkward to stop at a pub and having to ask if it's ok for fear of being turned away.

If we're in the area again we will definitely return 5*
“Excellent friendly pub”
Stopped off at swan for lunch on 29th July,on way through to southampton,we've been to this pub many times&everytime had a lovely meal&greeted by bar staff each time with a very warm friendly welcome. We've always found the food to be of very good quality&all staff to be very helpful&chatty.The pub itself is lovely very old and lots of character,and also very clean. So not sure what Sharon from Belfast is talking about,along with the carpets in toilets?as no carpets from what I remember in toilet cubicles!? Maybe she had one to many WINES!! Overall lovely traditional pub and would highly recommend.
“Lovely Pub in a lovely area”
My family and I have visited this pub a number of times over the last year or so and I must say since it was taken over by new people last autumn it has improved no end. A lot of the food is now home cooked and you can really tell the difference. Also little things like log fires and fresh flowers make the atmosphere very welcoming and the staff are always friendly. It's easy to get to and there's plenty of parking so I have recommended The Swan to lots of friends when they are visiting the Forest.
“Fantastic food and service”
We had our daughters wedding at this venue and oh my goodness it was fantastic . The food was outstanding and the service was brilliant . We had a sit down 3 course meal for 80 people and I could not find fault with anything . Highly highly recommend this Inn.
“Lovely Sunday lunch”
Visited The Swan for the first time and had a very enjoyable experience. Staff were friendly and the food was freshly cooked and delicious with good sized portions. We'll definitely be going back for seconds!!
“Perfect :)”
After a long walk round the wet forest last Wednesday we headed for The Swan for an early dinner,we got there about 4.30 p.m. so it was quiet and we were able to sit by the roaring fire. The girl behind the bar was very friendly and welcoming.We were pleased to see that the full menu is served all day. And the pub is child & dog friendly. We had starters & mains which all came out quickly and were hot & tasty. I had the steak & ale pie,which I am dubious about ordering as sometimes the steak is tough, but this was perfect. My youngest son had chicken nuggets from the kids menu and these were chunks of chicken in a nice batter not processed nuggets that you get in some places. I would definately eat here again (and I am fussy!) and will be returning on our next visit to the new forest and would highly recommend.Add testimonial text here...
