SquareMeal Review of The Swan at Southrop

Bronze Award

Set in a 17th-century village inn, The Swan has a simple motto: ‘home grown, homemade’. Thus, seasonal produce inspires the menu, with ingredients coming fresh from the Southrop Manor Estate’s farm every day. The restaurant is a jumble of open fires, exposed wooden beams and cosy corners, providing a snug and homely atmosphere. Yet despite the pub’s distinctly British attire, its oft-changing menu has an Italian and international outlook. To start, braised rabbit ragu with hand-cut pappardelle was rich in flavour and generously meaty. ‘Asian-style’ sprouting broccoli salad with sesame, cashews and nam jim sauce was a refreshing assembly, offering just enough of a spicy kick. The kitchen’s strength lies in its baked goods, where freshly made breads and desserts such as the rhubarb puff pastry tart are highlights. To accompany the food, a small but refined wine list features a solid selection of Old and New World options. In all, a quintessential, and delightful, countryside experience.

Outstanding meal – clearly one of the classiest places to eat in Cotswolds. A place that knows about food and how to serve it.

The starter of broad bean and pancetta with goats cheese was very bland., the beans hard and the cheese hardly melted. The chicken caeser salad with chicken wings was sickly and the parmesan crisps were burnt. The fresh fish sat on a bed of vegetables and was smothered in olive oil, and that was all you could taste. A very hushed atmosphere, you felt everyone was listening to your conversation. This restaurant came highly recommended, but felt very let down by the overall experience. A nice setting, but not worth the drive.
