The Swan at Lamport (Lamport, Northampton) Reviews
Newest Review: ... were up to the mark, that wouldn't matter. But sadly the food is too inconsistent to justify the cost. You can go in and order the same dish three times in a row and get three very different meals. It's not at all unusual for them to substitute elements of the dish for other things and forget to mention it. So for example if you ordered a dish that was supposed to contain asparagus, don't be too surprised to find the chef swapped it for broccoli and didn't mention it. A couple of times I've ordered a dish because one particular component was a favourite and then found it wasn't actually present in the delivered meal. That lack of attent... more

As new arrivals in northamptonshire my husband and i are visiting many local eateries, last friday we decided to have lunch at the swan at lamport accompanied by our young daughter. On entering the premises we were met by a lady who had to check whether we could be accomodated I thought it this rather odd as there were only two tables occupied in the whole place. When we were seated we were asked what we wanted to drink, but there was no mention of what my daughter would be having to drink and we were made to feel very unwelcome. We therefore decided to leave as we were definitely not going to pay for the privilege of being made to feel so uncomfortable. We instead ate at our local The Spencer Arms in chapel brampton where the staff are infinitely more hospitable and the food consistently good.

Terrible food, fish under cooked with tiny portions.Whole experience painful with the final entertainment them explaining they could not take card payment and had not been able to do so for days.To be fair the staff were nice and clearly embarressed about how poor the experience was.Very pricey too £72 for two with drinks and a dessert. A pub grub experience with restaurant pricing.

The Swan at Lamport is our most local up-market restaurant but we've hardly been there for the past couple of years because every time we decide to give it 'one more chance' we come away feeling really let down. It ought to be a fantastic restaurant and elements of it are indeed outstanding; the trouble is that they never seem to be able to pull everything together at any one time. The location is great - well obviously it's just up the road so we're biased about that. They have a fantastic position on the top of the hill opposite Lamport Hall (the local stately home) with views for miles across the hillside. Often you'll park up and find a field full of sheep ...

A delightful, modern restaurant and bar. I had previously visited The Swan when it was more of a pub, but after a tasteful and much needed re-furb I was pleasantly surprised. I found the staff to be well dressed and well mannered and the food to be very well presented and very tasty. My friends and I had a delighful trip and ended the extended lunch with anti-pasti and further drinks in the bar. I have since returned with my husband and children and we would definately recommend ... Read the complete review
