A funky sense of formality

Our 16th century pub in the honey-stone village of Ascott-under-Wychwood is a stylish mix of rural chic and professional service.

With wooden beams and floor, eye-catching art, and what The Daily Telegraph calls, ‘a slightly funky sense of formality’.

There’s a very attractive private dining room down a winding corridor that seats up to 20. Meanwhile, outside you’ll find an delightful terrace garden with a wisteria-clad pergola. In short, the Swan offers all the character you hope to find in the heart of the Cotswolds.

Christmas At The Swan

Join us for Christmas Day or your annual festive get-together.

We’re serving our two or three-course Christmas Party menu from 30th November and we have a four-course festive extravaganza planned for the big day itself.

Book in the restaurant, or reserve your own private space in our 24-seat private dining room, The Nest.

Our food has an artisanal ethos with the very best of locally sourced ingredients from trusted Cotswolds farmers.

There’s an imaginative menu, featuring delights like our signature burger with toffee apple sauce and blue cheese, sharing plates like flambée tart, or Shorthorn beef, and classics with a twist such as sea bream with roasted peppers. Just make sure you leave room for desserts as tempting as Pimm’s Poached Peaches, or Jaffa Cake Chocolate Pudding.

It’s a great big, newly updated, spanking bloody excellent Cotswolds pub, I mean that as about the biggest compliment I can muster.

How many pubs-with-rooms also come with a sommelier? Not many, but then everything takes a surprising turn in this attractive former coaching inn.

The food is undoubtedly the main event at The Swan. Obviously hugely popular with the locals, the restaurant was buzzing on a Friday evening.
