The Swan is a relaxed traditional pub and eatery in the heart of Cheltenham. Great for sociable dinners and drinks with friends, lazy weekend days and lively evenings, light bites, family meals and superb Sunday roasts.

We are delighted to bring you the absolute best of our county and neighbours.

Local craft and traditional brewers, mixologists and distilleries. We have craft beer from Cheltenham, ale from Stroud and Bristol, cider that is local and never from concentrate, just real juicy apples grown close to home. Our spirits are local too, and with wine from Europe we are committed to reducing our food miles where possible & supporting our fellow local businesses. Our chefs are proud to use local award-winning food producers, prepping and cooking all our dishes in-house to showcase the best the Cotswolds have to offer.

Awarded a ‘single use’ plastic free pub certificate, we also compost our waste, use renewable energy providers and recycle wherever possible, even our corks go to a local nursery to be made into crafts!
