I have been in this pub at intervals over over 4 years.

It has changed (for the worse).

On Burns Day this year the standard Haggis, Neeps and Tatties meal was not available - because they were out of tatties! I realise this may reflect as much on the JDW company as on the Swan.

A recent visit started well when I was asked what I wanted even before I had scanned the hand-pumps (very unusual in a JDW pub). After that however I found myself seated near a large group of middle aged regulars. I think they are always there but I have always been seated far enough away (like most JDW pubs it is fairly large). This group was dominated by a loud harridan who, with great restraint, limited the "f word" to once a sentence.

This pub is clearly poorly managed

Leighton Buzzard these days has some excellent pubs and micro pubs. Why go to the Swan? Are you that desperate to save 10p a pint?

Good range of beer and food service was good if you do have to wait I think its down to being cheap and popular with young family's and older generation you will not find your lager louts however they be up the road in lintern tree.

God's Waiting Room.

The amount of bus passes that must be in here could paper the walls. So THIS is where they spend those winter fuel allowances... pots of tea and reheated treats.

Mind out for Grim Reaper in mens' loo. (Making those poor old buggers haul their swollen, weeping bladders up a flight of stairs. Just too cruel!)

i had same problem the other day waiting ages for a pot of tea, but the food was quite nice and it felt safe in there.

Visited this newly refurbished Pub/Hotel, now owned by Wetherspoons , on Wednesday 24 August 2011.
First impressions were good...area was clean,tidy and with plenty of activity, almost all the tables being occupied by diners.
The staff waiting on tables were very quick,pleasant and welcoming...however I can't say the same about the bar staff (All male on the night).
I was left to wait approximately 8-9 minutes whilst 2 of the bar staff talked between themselves and then to fellow members of the local rugby club who had just arrived.
Another lady had been waiting 5-6 minutes to place an order for food!
So, all in all a marked improvement from the old original 'Drinking establishment' but a note to the new 'management'....Train your staff in the finer arts of Customer service!
We are paying to consume food and drink, not listen to their 'Shift times and dates' or their latest 'Conquests'; We are ultimately paying your wages and would like to be treated promptly with courtesy and respect.
