The Loddon Swan
We’re a modern pub with an authentic country feel and a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
We offer great food, a fantastic selection of ales and lagers and lots more besides…
The Swan in Loddon, has had a long history as a pub back to when it was opened by a Mr. Tricker as a coaching house in the 18th century.
In February 2012, it re-opened its doors under new management after extensive renovation and interior design.
Local business partners Andrew Freeland and Justin Fenwick bought the property last year bringing on board experienced general manager Kiri Coker and head chef Alan Leech to bring the Loddon pub back to life.
Despite its modernisation and attractive interior design The Swan will keep an authentic country pub feel with a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
The kitchen will provide a seasonal menu of top-end British pub favourites made from fresh, locally sourced ingredients. Dishes range from light bites to family Sunday roasts. Behind the bar the pumps are flowing with traditional local ales whilst offering a varied wine list. Afternoon tea will also be available.
The design of the pub has made the most of the great space available with a cosy, relaxed bar area as well as two dining areas, a beer garden and soon to be opened function room.
The Swan is situated on Loddon’s main street, a designated conservation area with a picturesque view of the Holy Trinity Church, which dates from 1490. It is minutes walk from the River Chet, a popular tourist destination due to its rich wildlife, stunning scenery and boat moorings.
General manager Kiri Coker brings with her 24 years of experience in the industry and has worked in a wide range of establishments from traditional country pubs, to city wine bars, to Brighton gastropubs. She is an independent pub manager who also runs her own catering company.
Kiri said of the opening, “So much planning and preparation has gone into the renovation of The Swan. Loddon is a beautiful, historical town with a strong sense of community, we wanted the pub to fit into that feeling whilst also offering something new for the locals and tourists alike.”
