This quaint and quiet 17th-century thatched country pub is located near the river Ouse, and is in a delightful village. The Swan's extensive and varied menu includes a few pub stand-bys, such as ploughman's platters and sandwiches, but predominantly features home-cooked fare using fresh local ingredients, especially fish and game, and is supplemented by good daily blackboard specials.
Choices include chilli-braised mushrooms on a bed of noodles for starters, venison in red wine, and unusual Oriental dishes such as teriyaki beef. There are also vegetarian options. Puddings include St Clement's sponge and apple pie.
Future plans for the large garden include a pets' corner and a children's play area.
