The Swan at Great Shefford
Christmas 2019

Bookings are now been taken for meals and events over the festive period. Further details we be added here very soon. In the mean time, please contact us for reservations and enquiries.


This traditional pub, situated in the centre of Great Shefford and now under new management, has been stylishly rearranged to make it the perfect place to find a cosy corner and take time out whilst enjoying some of our chef’s seasonal dishes, steaks or pizzas washed down with a great selection of wines, spirits, ales and lagers.

Inside you will find roaring log fires, big smiles, an elegant dining room and armchairs to while away the afternoon or evening.

During the summer why not come and enjoy an al fresco drink or dinner overlooking the pristine River Lambourn at the heart of the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

So, whether it be a special celebration, a mid-week drink, or an impromptu dinner we are happy to help you arrange the perfect occasion, just give us a call and speak to one of the team.

The Swan offers delicious pub classics and true country fare that gives more than a nod to the seasons and the local farms and producers that provide our ingredients. They even stock gluten free beer.

Whether you eat in the bar or in our wonderfully appointed restaurant area you’ll have the choice of traditional British pub favourites or classic à la carte dishes taking inspiration from around the world.

The Swan is dedicated to creating a great atmosphere for a quick drink, a game of pool, a session with your friends, a satisfying bar snack or an exquisite three-course meal.
