About White Swan

Built in 1787 the White Swan has seen many changes as a public house but has always maintained its friendly and warm atmosphere.
If you are looking for a light bite, business lunch or something more formal, the White Swan can accommodate – or just pop in for a drink and choose from an extensive list of wines, spirits, lagers and cask ales or whisky's.

Please use our online booking form - If the online reservation system is showing no availability please give us a call as we will always do everything we can to accommodate you (even though the computer says no we can sometimes say yes!).

Please note we will try our upmost to reserve your requested area but occassionally we may have to move you to another area if tables do not become available.

At present we are limiting tables to a maximum of 6 due to government regulations

Whilst manby tables are only reserved for dining we are allocating several tables that can be reserved for drinking as well. Along with this we will always have some tables that can not be reserved but are on a first come first seated or ad hoc basis.

Children are allowed in the evening although they have to remain seated at their tables.
The bar area is restricted to over 18’s after 6.30

Please let us know if you require a high chair or space for a buggy when making a booking and we will try to find you a suitable table. Unfortunately we are only small and some of our tables do not have enough space next to them for extras and so we need to be told beforehand.

Finally bookings are made for 2 hours but if you wish to stay longer if you can request beforehand we can will do our upmost to accomodate you.

Front of house staff could have been a bit friendlier / more welcoming. Table staff were lovely. Great to sit outside in the garden which was nice and quiet.

Great to be back at the White Swan. Socially distanced tables and open doors and windows made it all feel safe and the staff went out of their way to make us welcome. Food (especially the salt and pepper squid) was excellent. Thank you.

Not only is The White Swan in a lovely location, the service is incredible. We were served by the most engaging and very beautiful girls. Nothing was too much. Making our visit memorable. The menu is just what pub food should be...fresh and delicious. I have been quite a few times recently and I am never disappointed. Thank you to all the staff who were in attendance on Thursday the 18th.
