Nestling in the downs at the edge of the county of Berkshire is the historic village of Kingsclere. The Swan Hotel, which resides in the heart of the village, has been a bustling inn for over 400 years. Here, all the traditions of true innkeeping are still alive and well. The interior is comfortable and atmospheric, with a low-ceilinged beamed bar area and a huge fireplace which hosts a roaring log fire in the winter. Beyond this is the charming dining area, with its rug-clad wooden flooring, open brickwork and ancient dark beams.

Superb beers and great-value quality wines are central to The Swan's traditional ethos. There are always four hand-pumped cask ales, at least one of which is from a local brewer. The pub has appeared in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide for a remarkable 20 years - a sure testament to its dedication to quality ale. To accompany your pint, there is a daily menu available, written on large chalkboards. The food is wholesome and traditional, with a firm focus on quality, locally sourced produce. Hearty steaks are matched with homemade sauces, and fresh fish features strongly; the local catch from the Channel ports is cooked simply to allow the sublime, natural taste of the fish to shine through. Mixed game pie is a popular seasonal choice, and The Swan is also renowned for its homemade half-pound ground steak burger served with Stilton or mature Cheddar cheese, fresh salad and chunky fries - this is a favourite which is unlikely to be removed from the menu any time soon.

The lunchtime menu is simpler and a little lighter, with classics such as baked ham, eggs and chips and whitebait salad with crusty bread. The Swan Hotel offers nine individually styled, charming en-suite rooms with modern facilities. An overnight stay includes a freshly cooked traditional breakfast, or smoked haddock and poached eggs if you feel like something a bit different. With good company, great beer, lovely rooms and fresh food, The Swan is a true country inn which is sure to be around for another 400 years.
