Review on The Swan at Tetsworth

Forty showrooms stuffed with antiques under one roof attract hordes of visitors to this listed Elizabethan coaching inn, which is one of those handsome ancient buildings that looks remarkably youthful for its age. Browse around the exhibits or read the papers before moving into the wood-floored restaurant, where classy food is served amid period paintings and yet more antiques (some for sale).

There's nothing antiquated about the food, which centres on big-flavoured, good-looking dishes in the modern European vein, based on wisely selected raw materials. Open with home-smoked duck and spiced carrot salad or ballotine of organic Orkney salmon with wasabi cream and a salmon skin 'biscuit' before considering crispy pig's trotter with langoustines and broccoli purée or roast fillet of Oxfordshire beef with borlotti bean cassoulet, stuffed courgette flower and beetroot jus. Desserts might feature passion fruit soufflé or warm greengage tart with hazelnut frangipane, and the wine list runs to 50 keenly priced bins.
