Square Meal Review of The Swan Inn ?

Ambitiously refurbished and re-launched as a self-proclaimed gastropub, The Swan is a pretty 19th-century inn perched alongside the tiny river Lambourn. Sit on the terrace by the water’s edge with a pint of locally brewed Butt’s ale and a plate of mixed antipasti or a Barkham Blue ploughman’s with homemade chutney and pickled onions. Inside, puffy banquettes line a red-bricked dining room that blends rustic tones with touches of luxury – a theme continued on the plate. A salad of salmon, beetroot and potato is enlivened with lemongrass and ginger dressing, pheasant is cooked two ways, and locally sourced steaks are served with impressively stacked chucky chips and a grilled tomato. Alternatively, drop by for a plate of sarnies with coleslaw and crisps. Service is down to earth and friendly, and the wine list aims for value rather than ostentation.
