The bistro is a really good place to be. Wood burning stove in the winter and the option of a very pretty garden in the summer. Very polite and helpful staff and a good changing menu.More

Visit The Swan at least twice a year, never disappointed. The Brasserie is more relaxed than the main restaurant, if you want somewhere to eat with excellent food, and service without visiting the main restaurant. Never leave disappointed, food always as you would expect.More

Description
The Swan has an outstanding reputation for fine food and wine, it prides itself in serving the very best of modern British cuisine. We offer a variety of different dining options; from the informal Brasserie and historic Old Bar to al fresco dining in the garden, or fine dining in the elegant AA two Rosette Gallery Restaurant, the choice is yours. The Swan's menus are made using fresh, locally sourced seasonal ingredients and their popularity needs no further endorsement than the impeccable feedback received throughout the year.
