Been coming here on and off for years-definitely not the place it was. Food is overpriced and faddy-not a decent steak or burger to be had anymore. Specials also uninspiring and overpriced.

Bar prices have risen astonishingly, and judging by the fact that on Saturday nights the place is hardly bulging with people and on Sundays which a few years ago were quite busy but now are flat clearly the clientele have finally started to look elsewhere.

Scrap the silly, pretentious menu-put on a reasonable 'session' bitter and a lager and people might start returning. Serving chips with a burger out of an old tin-really!!!!

It's a nice enough place, but losing its way, doubtless due to the brewery food policy but surely if that's the case then the 'specials' could be adapted accordingly-a big potential market is being lost here!!

It is a shame, that the far superior, pre-hall and woehouse, THE GRAPES, was neglected and demolished by owners; was real pub, Black Swan, is not a local or a real pub, is a business model to sell food, with irritating piped music, constantly on, as a bonus, The bar service was polite and efficient, but the h and w refusal to allow choice of real ale, other than their own brands, is very backward and shortsighted.

Previously the James King, but I'm old enough to remember its original guise as the Black Swan. That was the roughest spit-and-sawdust place imaginable, I was served with a bottle of brown ale which the landlord picked off the shelf and blew an inch-thick layer of dust off !
We had some nice meals there when it first became the James King, and I would imagine that that would be more of the standard now. But it was still difficult to break the old habit of wiping my feet on the way out !

A terrible place to eat! The food is almost certainly microwaved & tasted extremely bland. The staff are rude & very arrogant & the atmosphere in general is like one would expect within Hades!
Never again will I set foot in such a place. Awful!
