Visiting this cozy restaurant after refurbishment and it looks great. Beer garden and new decking amazing for summer. Food is delicious and quite wide range of beers, ales and ciders. It’s a shame that Staropramen beer was taken off but there is still plenty to choose. There are all flavours of AU vodka. Staff is friendly and place is very clean and tidy. Will definitely recommend and we sure visit again soon

We saw the White Swan as we were passing by and stopped on the off chance they had space for us which thankfully they did. It was nice to see a pub doing something different for a change from the normal. The menu was different and fairly priced. We tried different foods like Artichoke which we never had before and it was very tasty. All in all a 10 out of 10. The staff were very helpful also.

Great highly recommended. We have been several time for the Tapas each time very good. Some of the choices do go off the menu I beleave due to demand on the night. Nice atmosphere and pleasant staff worth a visit.

A lovely village pub nestled in the heart of Ockbrook. Looks very pretty and inviting with lamps warmth and delicious food. The Sunday roast is lovely. Service was very good and friendly. A while back they had entertainment like quizzes readings etc
Highly recommend 🤩🦢

The food quality is very good. It’s not a proper Spanish tapas restaurant but you get the feeling specially if you’re craving for that kind of food as we were. The service was a bit weird. We didn’t feel welcomed from the start and whenever we wanted to order something extra we were told that might not Be possible because they were expecting to be full after 1900. Bear in mind that this was 1830 and we got there at 1800 and we had booked the table on the previous day for 1800 and we’re told to book any time we wanted as there was plenty of availability. The girl ended up bringing the menu but we just didn’t feel welcomed to order more. At the end we were charged more because they didn’t care looking into what was ordered. It’s not for the 3 pound extra but the principle of it… won’t be back for sure and it’s a shame because the food is very well prepared and the chef knows his business. I hope this review is taken by the pub management as a constructive criticism and everyone else has a better experience than we had.

Went on a Sunday with six other family members.
Did go for the tapas, but because of the demand over the weekend, there wasn't so much choice.
But still a good selection.
Sunday roasts are big, even the children's size.
Some nice ale's and larger on tap.
Friendly staff, not long to wait for meals.
Good size outdoor garden, and play area.
Been many times before and will go again.

Visited with friends for the tapas. Choice, quantity and quality was decent for the price. No cutlery provided though and no napkins either. Just a selection of small forks with the dishes which weren't suitable for all the food types to be honest.

Booked for Sunday lunch, upon arrival was told someone was sitting at our table and we'd have to wait then it was decided we could sit at another table, a staff member was sent to clear the table for us, tutting and rolling her eyes at the inconvenience, she cleared the table but neglected to wipe it.
My wife asked about the vegetarian option to be told there wasn't one so asked if the kitchen could do a Sunday lunch but just without the meat and a veggie gravy, then was told they deep fry the roasties but couldn't say what they were cooked in so she opted for the vegetable soup with roll and butter and a portion of halloumi with chilli jam.
The soup was served, no roll or butter, asked for some salt & pepper and for the roll with butter, waited, waited, waited, then my Sunday roast was served, no sauces were offered, then they brought the halloumi, no cutlery to eat it with, still waiting for the salt & pepper and a piece of bread, the end bit of a loaf which was dry on one side, still no butter, asked AGAIN for the salt & pepper which finally came in the form of those little sachets, they were damp!
The soup was Heinz vegetable soup from a tin, the bread was dry, no butter! The halloumi with chilli jam was ok. The service was appalling.
Overall the experience was awful, we were not made to feel welcome at all especially compared to the service given to the table beside us! Will never be returning, shocking the way we were treated, so much for a nice meal out 🙄
