Hidden in the Windrush Valley is the idyllic village of Swinbrook which appears not to have changed for centuries. Enchantingly lost in time. The Swan Inn is 3 miles from Burford.
Our menu is seasonal with an emphasis on fresh, organic and local ingredients.
We source game from local estates and our fish is delivered daily from Cornwall. The vegetables are grown locally in the Vale of Evesham and the cheeses are all British. The beef (Aberdeen Angus) is supplied by Archie's uncle who farms nearby.
Our aim is to provide delicious well cooked food using quality local ingredients. So whether it is a heart-warming stew in winter, fresh mussels in summer, Sunday roast or beetroot risotto with coriander pesto for vegetarians, we hope to provide something for everyone.
This year we were awarded the County Dining Pub of the Year 2009 by The Good Pub Guide which we are thrilled about.
