The Swan Brasserie

Celebrating our British heritage with a few European infusions. They like to rave about all things local where they can, with a wealth of seasonal ingredients available right here in The Cotswolds. Trout in particular is the speciality, locally caught in the village of Bibury in the very river that flows through the garden.

The menus showcase a few classics you will love, especially on the afternoon tea menu; it wouldn't be quintessentially British without one of chef's freshly baked fruit scones topped with lashings of clotted cream and strawberry jam. The Chef has also added a generous portion of his own culinary creations, which paired with some lovely wine from the fantastic choice stored in our magnificent wine wall; you're in for a treat. Come and dine, whether it's breakfast, lunch or dinner, we have something to satisfy your taste buds throughout the day at The Swan.

Bar & Courtyard

The bar at The Swan is very much like your traditional country bar next door. But with a few contemporary twists; forming the unique experience you will remember them for. There are plenty of cosy armchairs to sink into of course, and a big open log fire as well; making it a great place to sit back and read the morning papers over coffee. The dimmed lights from the antler chandeliers set a mood that is both warm and intimate. Relax indoors or out. We have a lovely terrace with some of the best seats in the house – the perfect place to retreat to during the summer months. Let our friendly staff help you by serving some sumptuous food and drink from our seasonal menus – served all day, every day so you don't need to worry about moving. Just sit back and relax.

Super location in Bibury but beds could be much better

Anon, stayed: August 2019

Location in Bibury is excellent, a quintessential Cotswold village with loads of charm. Nice room and excellent bathroom, let down by the uncomfortable and very squeaky bed.

Delightful hotel in a charming location.

Margaret, Hertfordshire, stayed: August 2019

I stayed at the Swan at Bibury with my husband for two nights as we needed a short relaxing break.
It was just the ticket - picturesque, comfortable and lovely staff. I felt we got a good deal through off peak luxury for a hotel of that calibre. We enjoyed wandering around the hotel gardens, and the rest of Bibury, and visited the trout farm a stone s throw away.
I would like to give a special mention to the lovely lady with blonde hair who served us at breakfast both mornings and was so warm and chatty. It makes such a difference to the ambience of a hotel to have staff like that.

Excellent

Hazel S, Worcestershire, stayed: June 2019

I booked 2 night break at Swan as a treat for my husband's recent 'milestone' birthday as he did mention few months ago how much he'd like to visit Bibury, so took his comments on board. It was a little more than we would normally pay, but it was worth every penny. From check in to check out, we felt most welcome. all the staff were lovely and did everything possible to make our stay perfect. Room was clean, spacious and very pretty, loved the little extras included. We dined in restaurant, food was excellent and service was exceptional. Bibury is a beautiful village. We will be back.

Really lovely staff.

Cherry, Hertfordshire, stayed: June 2019

We had lots of lovely smiles when we arrived, and the receptionist was so helpful. I had upgraded our room to a four poster, but when I saw the size of bed, it was too small, as my husband was just getting over a cancer operation.and we needed a larger bed.. The staff were obliging, and found us a king size bed, although the room was not nearly as nice as the Swan room, we settled for a larger bed. .The restaurant was okay, but I think it was a Bistro place? I was thinking of nice white linen table clothes, but unfortunately, no! At a 4 star hotel, you usually have a smart dining room for guests. I have to say the food was good, but the breakfasts were to die for. Amazing, the best ever. My daughter had her honeymoon at this hotel, and comes back most years as they love it.

Short break

BJ, West Sussex, stayed: June 2019

We thought the room was on the small side. Checking in and out was awkward as they initially couldn t find our reservation and they were looking at the wrong sheet. Checking out they charged us for a meal which was included in our deal so good that we checked it carefully. We were charged rather a lot for tips but didn t change it.

Jennifer, West Sussex, stayed: May 2019

A lovely, relaxing break in picturesque scenery. We had lovely long walks with our dog, ate delicious food (the fresh trout from the farm across the road is a must!) and enjoyed intimate, unhurried evenings over excellent wines in the courtyard. Couldn't ask for more!

Romantic return visit

EH, Norfolk, stayed: May 2019

Our one night stay was our second visit to this hotel, the last time being nearly 53 years ago on the occasion of our wedding. We were welcomed by charming and extremely helpful staff who wanted to make this stay as memorable as our first. The accommodation was delightful and the evening meal was superb. Additionally the breakfast was sumptuous and offered a huge choice. While it is not a cheap hotel to stay at we would recommend taking advantage of all that The Swan has to offer and hope we may get the chance to stay there again.
