If you try and imagine the most beautiful English Country Pub you could do no better than The Swan at Swinbrook. Two miles east of Burford by a bridge on the River Windrush rest this ancient pub. Attached to the Mill Cottage with the river running through it and right by the most picturesque of Cotswold cricket pitches you could not find a more genuine and timeless location.

The imaginative pub food has gained an extremely good reputation locally - it is a good balance between traditional and modern English cuisine.
