Review on The White Swan

Situated in the very heart of historical Stratford-upon-Avon, the White Swan occupies an impeccably preserved building dating back to the fifteenth century, making the hotel the oldest surviving inn and one of the oldest buildings in the town. The Grade II listed building underwent a £3 million restoration project when it was completely renovated and modernised, whilst ensuring that it maintained its unique heritage. The restaurant displays all its charms with low beams, opens fires and candlelit bare wooden furniture.

Carefully sourced ingredients from local and sustainable sources put on a good show in the kitchen, witness pan roast pigeon breast, lentils, black pudding and Scotch quail's egg or pan roast scallops, cauliflower chutney, crispy wild rice and spicy squid amongst the starters. Main courses usher in duck breast, potato and confit duck leg terrine, tangerines, beetroots, carrots and orange granola or for fish lovers there's pan fried Monkfish, poached duck egg, Cod brandade, caramelised onions, courgettes and spinach puree. To finish with something sweet choose dark chocolate and Grand Marnier fondant, orange ice cream and hazelnuts or maybe pistachio tart with textures of rhubarb. Winner of the Master Cellarman award, the pub serves an excellent selection of wines and Cask Marque approved ales.

The White Swan has forty-one stylish appointed rooms should you wish to extend your stay and explore the many attractions the area has to offer.
