We’ve got everything you need from a country pub near you.
Originally a cottage with a blacksmiths shop next door, The Swan began life as an “ale house” in 1842, consisting of a sitting room, parlour and bar area (men only). Its owner, John Whitfield Thompson, sold it to Newcastle Breweries in 1897 where the site was demolished and then re-built as the present “Swan Inn”. It was opened up again on Christmas Eve 1899 by Mr George Reay (landlord) as a beer house.
Our menus are full of hearty favourites and country pub classics, as well as our seasonal spring dishes, and we’ll be ready with a well-stocked bar, including cask ales, fine wines and British gin to suit very taste - which will taste all the better when enjoyed either in our beautiful gardens or by our crackling log fires.
We look forward to welcoming you!
