    Pub
    Pleasant, old-fashioned venue with good food at reasonable prices (hence lots of business lunchers to be spotted). Lots of interior nooks and crannies supplemented by a heated & covered all-year-round courtyard, popular (and leafy, Mediterranean-feeling, and uncovered) in summer. The 'cottage' at the end of the garden is available for hire for meetings etc. The landlord is as welcoming as ever, and this is definitely a traditional pub with a traditional landlord - one of the most traditional you will possibly find, in fact. They serve pub food including pies and Sunday roasts - it's a pub that serves food, not a gastropub. You can even take a walk through the pub on Google Street View!

    Situated alongside the attractive Windrush River and very much at the heart of the local village community in Swinbrook, The Swan has a rich history associated with it. The Inn is owned by the Dowager Duchess of Devonshire’s estate, the last of Mitford sisters, and – along with the neighbouring cottage – forms the residual part of the estate inherited by the family at the beginning of the nineteenth century. Photographs around the pub celebrate the connections to the Mitfords and village life.
