The Swan in Loddon, has had a long history as a pub back to when it was opened by a Mr. Tricker as a coaching house in the 18th century. In February 2012, it re-opened its doors under new management after extensive renovation.
Local business partners Andrew Freeland and Justin Fenwick bought the property in 2012 to bring the Loddon pub back to life. A large amount of investment and love has gone into modernising both the interior and exterior. Making for a warm and attractive place to eat and drink all with great produce and friendly service.
The ethos behind The Swan is to keep an authentic country pub feel with a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The kitchen provides a seasonal menu of top-end British pub favourites made from fresh, locally sourced produce. Dishes range from light bites to family Sunday roasts. Behind the bar the pumps are flowing with traditional local ales whilst offering a varied wine list.
The design of the pub has made the most of the great space available with a cosy, relaxed bar area as well as four dining areas including the bar, a new restaurant, beer garden and events room. The Swan is situated on Loddon's main street, a designated conservation area with a scenic view of the Holy Trinity Church, which dates from 1490. It is a minutes’ walk from the River Chet, a popular tourist destination due to its rich wildlife, stunning scenery and boat moorings.
Andrew said of the opening, "So much planning and preparation has gone into the renovation of The Swan. Loddon is a beautiful, historical town with a strong sense of community, we wanted the pub to fit into that feeling whilst also offering something new for the locals and tourists alike."
