The Swan Inn
Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
Situated on the main road through Moreton-in-Marsh, The Swan Inn provides a welcoming break for travellers and is an attractive spot for a cosy pub dinner. The genial atmosphere created by the friendly owners has turned the pub into a local hotspot, with regularly scheduled special events and a reasonably priced tasty carvery on Sunday. Over the weekend, the bar is licensed until 1am – ideal if you’re celebrating a special occasion in the 50-seat function room.
The inn is split into two areas: an intimate dining room and a larger bar area offering a great selection of ales, beers and drinks, as well as a pool table. There is also a skittles alley, and nine en-suite rooms to accommodate those staying for more than just a meal.
The menu presents simple, classic pub food all freshly prepared on-site with local ingredients, and is supported by a good wine list, too. I decided on creamy garlic mushrooms on toast with a crisp, fresh salad to start, and rare sirloin steak with hot peppercorn sauce and beautifully crunchy onion rings for my main course. My partner took note of our waiter’s recommendation and went for the delicious pâté to start, followed by a rich and perfectly seasoned steak and ale pie with fresh vegetables. The pudding selection included a sticky jam pudding with custard and wonderful homemade apple crumble, which provided an indulgent finale.
