Really good food in a beautiful setting. Faultless service
The place is beautiful and excellent service, the staff were very friendly but the food let it down! We had fish n chips with untasty mushy peas! The fish was not crispy and chips were over cooked!! Sad cus the place is lovely!
Good riverside view. Food choice limited but salmon starter and fish and chips were good.
Another excellent lunch here - good food, lovely being out on the shaded terrace with the river running alongside. Very attentive service. Really love this place!
Easy parking out the front too.
Lovely setting by the river, the staff were really helpful and friendly. The food was very good but there could be a bit more choice for vegetarians and vegans. Really lovely time and very relaxing. Thank you
the service wasn't the best. We ordered a few drinks and waited 20 minutes for those. The food arrived and was nice. We ordered a second lot of drinks and waited 35 minutes before asking where our drinks were, the young girl didn't put the drinks through. I asked for the bill and it took 30 seconds for that to come out. Its a shame the service was like this as the pub is very nice.
Very good food and service
Fish and Chips shouldn't be a problem, but the Batter was not crisp and the chips soggy.
Beer good .
It was sunny and it was Friday and we eat outdoors.
Lovely dinner slightly spoilt by the Karahi dish which was sadly underspiced. My wife's pork dish had more spice than the "curry". Superb service was the highlight
Our 1st visit here with my wife & her sister (July 2021) since the re-opening. 1st impressions were very good. Nice looking pub, friendly bar staff, lovely location.
We visited on a Monday lunchtime, had to pre-book a table as we were still under COVID restrictions.
- Lovely setting by the river.
- Friendly staff.
- Reasonable menu prices.
- Despite pre-booking had to wait 10-15 mins for drinks.
- Had to ask to place food order after about 40 mins.
- Then told food “would be a while”. If they’d told us that before we would’ve ordered nibbles.
- Eventually food arrived (after asking where it was) after about 1hr 30mins, so we booked a table for 1pm, arrived about 12:50, actually ate about 2:20!
- Food was tasty but poor presentation, e.g. my burger was literally just a burger same with fish & chips & my wife’s rabbit pasta looked nice but fairly tasteless.
- To add insult to injury a couple seated behind us who arrived after we did were served way before us & actually paid & left while we were still eating.
I understand sometimes you’re unlucky & it’s unexpectedly busy but currently everyone has to pre-book so presumably they knew how many people would be there & what time.
Overall would I go back? Yes, sometimes things don’t go as planned but if we had a similar experience wouldn’t return.
On arrival we were welcomed by all the staff in a manner which you would expect and they were above that, my wife and I had Sunday lunch which was fantastic the food was very well presented and tasted very nice indeed.
We will definitely be back and we shall definitely recommend The Great Shefford to all our friends.
Thank you all again for a lovely lunch.
Regards john and Jean watts
Very nice table indoors overlooking River, prompt friendly service, no lengthy delays before food was served, food very good quality and quantity, an excellent lunchtime choice of venue
Food was excellent staff very attentive will certainly return for another eat out
I'm gluten free so struggle to eat out. But I had the amazing fish and chips. My husband had the roast beef dinner. We will be going back.
Excellent food and service, and a very enjoyable evening, as ever.
Good service but maybe a little more choice on the lunch menu. Food was nice
Good food and wine at affordable prices. The staff were excellent and attentive.
I used to live in village as a child back in the 70's when it was the Swan (shame the names changed) but its been very beautifully renovated inside and out. I brought my son with me and had a lovely meal and we would both definitely return, we'll done
Good quality food and service both presented in a lovely pub with great decor!
Fantastic food and service. My kids loved the entire evening also. Highly recommended.
Good food and great location. An enjoyable experience
River table was lovely, but a pity the car park is so close.
I had a chicken pie, and spinach - all excellent, beautifully presented. What more does one want for a Wednesday lunch? Thank you.
A wonderful relaxed lunch sitting beside the river in the fabulous warm weather. The asparagus soup and the seafood curry were particular highlights.
This is the best meal I have had in a long time. I’m just so sorry I live so far away as in Buckinghamshire.
The service was incredible and the layout of the pub is amazing.
I had been before when it was the White Swan.
The setting is one of the best and there is plenty of parking.
Cannot praise it highly enough
Peaceful, good food and lovely place to sit and ponder a few hours
Friendly welcome on arrival. We sat in doors at the rear near the river. Very pleasant surroundings. Menu has a good choice and the meal I had was very tasty and well presented. I will certainly be returning
Great meal as usual. My wife was really pleased with the fish and chips. Will be back soon.
We love the Great Shefford, the food is always excellent and their professional approach to covid really put our minds at rest. This weekend we are outside under their lovely new awnings which we spotted were all automatic and had integrated heaters, no expense spared! The outside tables are nicely separated so we felt we had lots of room around us next to the river.
A warm welcome; attentive, friendly and efficient staff; well-kept beer; delicious food (roast lamb/nut roast/fish and chips); overall a really great experience!
The food was fine but to have to wait over an hour and a half from the time of ordering to receiving our meals was too long even under current restrictions.
Lovely food in a delightful riverside setting - we are so lucky to have this as our local!
Excellent lunch by the river outside
As usual we enjoyed our meal at the Great Shefford. Perfect service with a smile.
Would recommend the great Shefford anytime excellent service, superb food, whole atmosphere and decor outstanding. Will definitely be using the pub more often.
The dinner was ok; I’ve had better there before; the lamb was disappointing and one carrot and parsnip seems a bit tight.
Couldn’t be more complimentary.....I held a business lunch there and I was really impressed so will be back soon.
As always great service great good great atmosphere
First time back to this pub since renovations & new owners - and WOW, it is fantastic! Looks amazing inside & outside terrace overlooking river is beautiful. Wonderful food & service, will definitely be back!!! Very reasonably priced too.
First time inside this year! We had booked for outside but Georgi called and said I have moved you into the private dining area! Fantastic service everyone pleased to be warm and very well fed. New menu was a hit and as always we were very well looked after by the team
The food was excellent and the service was also very good. We had a great lunch.
