The Old Swan


It's great to be back open again...we are currently open and serving food outside on the following days.  To book your table please call Phil on 07976 885351 or contact us.
If you would like to pop down for a drink a phone call in advance is advised if the weather is not great - we have limited tables under the marquee but plenty in the garden if the weather is good.
April brings with it all kinds of weather...even with a little heating we must have sides open on the marquee, so we would advise bringing a blanket just in case to keep the chill off.  We will be taking bookings from 1pm through until late afternoon.  At the moment we are not taking bookings for evening meals as the chilly April nights may be a little too much to make trade viable.  
For hardy souls we will be offering takeaways Friday and Saturday evening which you are more than welcome to enjoy in our marquee with a beer or glass of wine.  We will close at 9pm on Friday and Saturday.
Friday & Saturday - book between 1pm and 6pm.
Sunday Lunch - book between 12pm and 4pm.
Our online booking system will be live the meantime please contact us or call Phil on 07976 885351 to book your table.  We will endeavour to have a selection of fresh fish but do please feel free to request your fish of choice and we will have it waiting for you.
We'll be here to welcome you with open arms, a friendly face and our usual great food.  Once again we can't wait!  See you very soon, Phil, Clare and the whole team here x

Phil & Clare Hale welcome you... their beautiful 17th century coaching inn.
The historic freehouse is full of rustic beams and character creating a cosy, relaxing and welcoming environment.  Look closely and you will often find their cocker spaniel Tessie snuggled up by the stunning real log open fire!
