The Swan is a beautifully kept early 17th century Cotswold inn, situated on the village green in Southrop, an idyllic village in the heart of the Leach Valley. This quintessential English village pub comes complete with a pretty restaurant, a separate bar, open fireplaces, a skittle alley, a private room and accommodation in the beautifully appointed cottages on the Southrop Manor Estate.
The Swan is at the heart of Southrop’s village community, with locals regularly competing in skittle matches and enjoying a drink in the buzzy bar, especially at the weekends.
We will happily welcome dogs in the Bar area only.
We look forward to welcoming you.

Friday 29th April 2011 - The Wedding of HRH Prince William and Kate Middleton
To mark the Royal Wedding, we hosted a village street party. The road around the village green was closed and tables and chairs set up in the road. Around 200 villagers and many of our customers from further afield came to join the party.
The Swan at Southrop is a partner to Thyme at Southrop Manor which is situated in the beautifully restored Manor barns just 100 meters from the Swan. They provide the following:
