Five star in every way apart from bar seating, an update to a more comfortable seating arrangement would add so much to the experience, comfortable seating would make people stay longer. BARRYSCARD ( retired innkeeper)

The staff were excellent, one of our party of four had a coughing fit (not Covid) and the staff looked after him with a great deal of care especially the male member of staff who waited by the toilet to ensure he was o/k. The care and consideration shown to him was well beyond what you would expect, I cant thank them enough. And the food excellent as always, lovely meal and good service. Only suggestion is please keep the outside door closed it did get chilly when left open. Dave Lattimore

We went intending to try the tapas but very engaging waitress informed us of 2 for 1 paella offer so tried that instead. So impressed we will be going back for tapas. On top of that when just about to leave happened to mention it was our wedding anniversary and were offered complimentary glass of cava. Excellent all round.

All the staff were very friendly, big smiles and cheery attitude. Food was, as always, very tasty and lovely and hot. Only thing I didn’t like was sitting in the fireplace seating, it’s a bit too dark for my taste. Thought of asking to move but it was getting busy.

First time here and we really enjoyed our meal out. The children weren't keen on the menu and opted for pizza and lasagne while my husband and I had a selection of hot tapas. The food was really good and delicious. Customer service was very good as well.

All very good. Obviously due to few people the ambience was not as usual but not due to the Swan, just lack of people. Food as usual very good but I feel too much black pudding in different tapas but this could be because I do not like it so too many things I was not able to eat

Its a bit cold in the bar area where we were sat.. The calamari needs a sauce as its very dry.. usually garlic dip is thinner and works well Service was excellent. Gf menu great for my pescatarian friend. We will be back.

In the light of all the guidance we felt that the table behind us was too close although they were not there for long. Two main courses came considerably after the first 2 making the meal disjointed. We asked for a large salad to share and were told that salad came with the main courses - it was however rather small for 4 people. The staff were lovely - although struggling to talk with the type of masks they had on and battling with the tablets - resorting to a notepad in the end. Overall it was good, but not AS good as Shipston.

We normally go to the Shipston site but as it was fully booked, opted to try Kineton. Food was superb as always but this pub atmosphere just doesn’t compare! Too noisy and and surroundings don’t complement the food.
