Welcome to The Swan, our bustling village pub with 7 en-suite bedrooms and an outstanding kitchen led by executive chef Tom Blake from River Cottage, alongside head chef Sam Sperring-Trendl.

We’re open all day for a quick drink, a snack or a delicious meal. Come and sit in our bar beside a woodburner, watch the world go by at tables out front, dine in the restaurant or alfresco on the terrace – or just enjoy the peace of the garden.

We have completely refurbished The Swan, sympathetically modernising the building and restoring much of the original eighteenth & nineteenth century architecture. Opening as a Beer House in the early 1700s, the property was subsequently enlarged to become ‘The Swan Hotel’ from the mid 1800s with rooms, stables and coaching yard. After many years in the hands of indifferent pub companies, The Swan is now firmly back in business!

The Restaurant

The kitchen is the heart of our pub. Tom Blake and his team produce a River Cottage inspired menu which changes regularly and uses all the best local ingredients. It is simple, unfussy, fresh food at its best.
