About us

Completely refurbished in the last couple of years, The Alderton Swan offers a warm welcome to locals and visitors alike.

Thanks to an eclectic mix of cultures and global experiences, our simple aim is to offer guests an extensive range of drinks, the freshest & most delicious food, combined with a delightful choice of quality wines, all in the setting of our charming grade two listed building.  In spring, summer & autumn, we are open seven days a week and warmly welcome not only our supportive local residents, but the many cyclists, walkers and holidaymakers who visit the area. The tranquil courtyard is perfect for alfresco dining.

We’re dog-friendly and there are some lovely walks in the surrounding area – details of which can be found here. For the more adventurous, bamboo bikes are available for hire!

There are regular events every month – please check the events page for details.
