So since my last visit in 2017, I decided to pop back into the Swan and get some food as it was again another lovely day.

The Food…

I was happy to see that basically, you can get practically anything! and I really mean that. The menu has a vast choice, so you will always find something you like.

Main Course

Chicken Burger & Chips £7.75

This was a nice burger and excellent value for money as there were two chicken burgers between the buns.

The chips were nice and many of them as you see, but I needed to add some salt (this is more a personal taste thing)

Tonight I was walking around this area of the West End, and I decided to pop in here and have a beer and a burger.

Looking Around

On entering it instantly hits you that this is more a pub/bar, but they do have a section through the back where you have booths to eat.

Since I am getting into the craft beer scene, I spotted a few names I recognised so I was going to try a beer I’ve not had before.

As I was shown to my table I had a look at some of the food everyone else was having, and ohhhh they also do really nice looking Hot Dogs.

Main

Southern Fire Burd £10.95

IMG_7562
Crispy chicken, bacon, cheese & buffalo sauce

On arrival, this looked very good, and a good sized portion.

First I tried the chips…

These were nice and fresh and had a good taste but a little salt was needed but that’s more a personal preference.

Now the burger…

mmm, the chicken was nice and crispy but had a tender centre, the sauce and cheese and bacon just added to the flavour.

This was a nice chicken burger!!

A really nice first visit, with some good food and a good selection of craft beers.

I will definitely be going back here, as I HAVE to try the hot dogs!!!!

If you like chicken burgers check out this place!

The description sounded mega good, so I had to order this!

On arrival, this is a big boy, so it was time to take a bite!…..well let’s just say my mouth wasn’t big enough so I had to resort to a knife and fork.

This was very good, full of flavours with every mouthful and just so good!
