About us:

Richard Haddon & Michiel Verkoren, deciding to take a break from careers in the theatre, re-opened this 17th Century Coaching Inn in July 2013.

Michiel, a fully qualified chef, worked alongside our Head Chef - Dean Collins.

They completed extensive renovation and development works including the creation of a new function room that was opened by The Prime Minister; The Rt. Hon. David Cameron on Saturday February 8th 2014, who stayed for lunch with his entire family.

During their time running the Swan, they have received numerous superb reviews on Tripadvisor and in the local press including The Oxford Times & Oxford Mail, Food & Drink Guide and Cotswold Life .

“ The Swan Inn is a proper cosy local, serving a decent pint of real ale and tasty, affordable, comforting pub food. Service is warm, welcoming and attentive. Richard and Michiel are such a dynamic team that I do not think there is danger of a swansong for this pub anytime soon.”

Oxford Mail

“ This traditional country inn has charm in abundance. Although they have only been running the pub since July 2013, proprietors Richard and Michiel have already mastered the balance of traditional and contemporary elements that makes pub dining a joy.”
