Bar at The Swan


Located in Rowberrow on the edge of the Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, The Swan is a 17th century Grade II-listed pub and inn, brimming with history and a cosy, welcoming vibe.

The team take pride in the menus at The Swan, using only the finest locally sourced produce and ingredients to create delicious seasonal dishes and hearty pub classics.

Behind the bar you’ll find an extensive selection of wine and cocktails and a cracking range of award-winning beer from Butcombe Brewery (located just a few miles away in Wrington). Beer also features throughout the menus and daily specials – like the Butcombe Gold beer-battered fish and chips – and the team are always on hand to recommend the perfect beer pairing with your food.

With several vegetarian and vegan options on the menus and gluten-free options available on request, the kitchen can cater for most dietary requirements. There is also a delicious children’s menu.

Located just 7 miles from Bristol airport and 15 miles from Bristol Temple Meads train station, The Swan is the perfect stop-off when exploring Bristol, Somerset, and the world-class walking, cycling and dog-walking opportunities in and around the Mendips. Other local attractions include Cheddar Gorge, Wookey Hole Caves and Longleat safari park.
