The traditional pub bar, with its roaring fire and oak beams, sit together within the 12th Century architecture of this local boozer. The sociable beer garden is open all year round.

A blackboard menu offers traditional pub food as well as daily specials, whilst the bar serves an impressive selection of local guest ales from a variety of brewers. The Old Swan Inn is the hub of the local community. A dining room area offers a 40 seater relaxed, comfortable environment, complete with cosy wood burner to welcome drinkers and diners alike.

The Swan’s kitchen is closed 2.30-5pm Monday to Friday.  We’re open fully at the weekends with last orders for food on Sunday at 5pm.
