The Swan Information


Set in the beautiful historic small town of Bampton situated on the Devon and Somerset border. This is an area well known for its hunting, fishing, shooting and is very popular with ramblers and cyclists. The Exmoor National Park is only six miles away and the beautiful beaches of north and south Devon is a 40 minute drive. The Swan being the oldest pub in Bampton was originally lodgings to accommodate the masons and other craftsmen who were hired to enlarge the church in 1450, which is just behind the pub and can be seen from our back terrace.The pub has recently been renovated to a high standard with a solid oak bar giving it a contemporary yet traditional feel, which has the original fireplace and bread oven dating back to 1450. The atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming. Serving traditional pub food, fine wines and real ales all at affordable prices.On Sundays you can order a roast of local meat from the farms, or something from the menu. We have well kept real ale on the hand pumps with two guest ales and a keen selection of wines from around the world to suit all tastes. We have a passion for the use of local produce and creates some real pub classics such as sausages and mash, cod and chips, pies, grilled rump steak and simple baguettes with a great choice of sweets to tempt. We have two comfortable double rooms and a twin room for bed and breakfast. All are en-suite with flat screen televisions, Wi-fi, dab radios, USB sockets, and tea and coffee facilities.
