Olive Magazine

Food and Travel Magazine

" A honey-hued Cotswolds darling near Chipping Norton, this 16th-century coaching inn steals the show for its modern take on pub grub... It only opened in May, but we predict big things for this eight-room bolthole. "

Evening Standard

" The food is undoubtedly the main event at The Swan. Obviously hugely popular with the locals, the restaurant was buzzing on a Friday evening. "

SheerLuxe

" Country Creatures has overhauled The Swan’s dishes and redecorated everything from the beer garden to the bedrooms. The inn’s traditional Cotswolds honey stone exterior and wooden beamed interiors have been given a new lease of life via eclectic wallpapers, bright textiles and smatterings of modern art. We especially liked the on-trend forest green accents, which extend from the banquette seating through to the bold patterned wallpaper in the dining room. "
