This traditional country inn has charm in abundance. Although they have only been running the pub since July 2013, proprietors Richard and Michiel have already mastered the balance of traditional and contemporary elements that makes pub dining a joy. The Swan also has six en-suite rooms, along with a new function room for events and private dining. Already The Swan has won a Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor and scores of 9 out of ten in its reviews on

In the main bar, a log fire ensures patrons are kept cosy and warm while they sip their pints. In the kitchen, head chef Dean Collins, working alongside Michiel, creates dishes that comfort and tantalise in equal measure. The warm mackerel salad starter was a delight, and was followed by a main of seasonal pheasant presented three ways and served with a rich jus - my companion proclaimed that the dish was 'autumn on a plate.' My beetroot risotto with apple and whipped goat's cheese was an unusual rendition of a classic dish and one of the best I've ever tasted.

The wine list is confident and accessible, with wines offered by the glass or bottle. We had the house white, which was crisp and refreshing. Most of the ingredients used are either produced or sourced locally, and include buffalo milk ice creams from Laverstock Park Farm, fresh fish from Brixham in Devon, and local ales from Hook Norton Brewery
