The Swan at Radcot
Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
Radcot-on-Thames, Bampton, OX18 2SX
It’s hard to imagine a more idyllic spot for a pub than The Swan Hotel’s setting on the banks of the River Thames. You can’t beat it for summer’s lunch or a late evening’s pint, as the sun slowly sets over green grass and tranquil water. The Swan Hotel makes spectacular use of its setting, having transformed a small island on the river into a campsite, and with a range of moorings available to the boats traversing the Thames. You can even stay overnight in one such boat, thanks to anew partnership which sees a six-berth canal boat moored on the pub’s shoreline. The riverside location is not the pub’s only asset. Lovingly run and steeped in history, the interior is rich in charm and comfort, complemented by the obliging staff. Offering a range of traditional pub fare that is well cooked and artfully presented, The Swan makes an ideal location for a relaxed evening out, and dinner and drinks can be enjoyed at a wholly reasonable price. The atmosphere is refreshingly unpretentious and friendly. Live music and a number of events held throughout the year make this an excellent venue to visit all year around. Make it a stop on your next Oxfordshire outing, and you’ll quickly see why so many come here. You might even fi nd us at the bar, sipping a cask ale.
