The standard of cooking at The White Swan is truly exceptional. Head chef Chris Leaper and his incredibly talented team craft outstanding dishes that have earned The White Swan a place in The Michelin Guide for 2019. Combining fine cuisine with a warm country pub ambience, it’s the ideal setting for anyone who appreciates great food without the stuffiness usually associated with such a fine establishment.

We savoured an amuse-bouche of deep-fried haggis with olive bread and sundried tomato butter before moving on to starters. The seasonal menu boasts an inviting selection of flavoursome dishes, and I opted to start with barbecued sardines accompanied by heirloom tomatoes, sourdough and burrata, while my companion plumped for crispy pig’s head with Oxford Blue and a Waldorf salad. To follow, my pheasant breast with pancetta, Bramley apple and celeriac was beautifully tender and flavoursome. My companion was equally thrilled with his venison Wellington accompanied by woodland mushrooms, parsnips and Madeira jus. Sweet and buttery tarte Tatin and a refreshingly light lemon parfait completed this superb meal. Each dish was as exceptional as the last – the talented kitchen brigade creates a harmony of delicious flavours on every plate.

The team also hosts wine tasting evenings, and for true epicureans, the Friday and Saturday night Chef’s Table is not to be missed.
