Review on Brasserie at The Swan Hotel
Built on the site of an old monastic college, this Grade-II listed coaching inn is an enduring fixture of the Stafford scene and stands right in the heart of the town. Exposed beams, panelling and stone fireplaces still add some colour to the interior, which now includes two bars and a coffee shop as well as the highly rated, split-level Brasserie with its timber frame and stylish contemporary fittings.
Deli boards of cheese, charcuterie and antipasti are ideal for grazing; otherwise pick from the modern eclectic menu. Starters of confit duck leg with chorizo and borlotti beans or Staffordshire oatcakes with wild mushrooms could give way to Ghurkha chicken curry, Scottish salmon with fennel confit and celeriac purée or slow-braised lamb shank. Also check out the Black Rock Grill menu, which revolves around Staffordshire steaks cooked on hot rocks at the table.
Express lunches and attractively priced weekday dinners are added attractions for the local crowd. The hotel also boasts a stunning new 'eco-garden'.
