The Swan Hotel

Owned and run by Adnams, The Swan dates from the 1600s, but there’s been brewing on site here for at least 670 years.

The Adnams brewery was established in 1872, at the same time as The Swan was purchased by brothers Ernest and George Adnams.

Over 600 years of brewing history means that The Swan is steeped in beer – not literally! – but you’ll find references to brewing and distilling throughout the hotel.

The Still Room
This elegant restaurant takes its name from our craft distillery, and you’ll find that the Copper House Distillery has influenced the design with features such as the stunning copper-topped bar showcasing our award-winning spirits. The Still Room has an air of grandeur and calm.

Tap Room
With oak floors and artefacts galore, the Tap Room is steeped in Adnams heritage and is a great place for a light bite or a long lunch. It’s a contemporary pub with a stylish showcase of Adnams beers.

Afternoon Tea
Treat yourself to our decadent afternoon tea. Enjoy three tiers of delights: a selection of sandwiches, buttermilk scones with clotted cream and jam and a tempting variety of pastries and cakes. Make it extra indulgent with a glass of Adnams Champagne or an Adnams Copper House G&T.

To give us time to prepare your delicate cakes, scones and pastries we will need 24 hours notice of your booking please.
