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.
