**EVENING MEAL 3 COURSE £12.00**
This 17th Century coaching inn is situated at the top of the historic town of Wotton-Under-Edge, close to a free public car park (free for the first 23 hours) and next to the Town Hall. The Swan has a wealth of charm and character, enhanced by original features including beamed ceilings and exposed walls plus three open fires and traditional furniture.
We have eight traditional well-equipped bedrooms, six are ensuite, two of the rooms have shared facilities.Two of the rooms have a linking door that can be made into a family suite.
The Swan Hotel dates from the 17th century and for a long time was a busy coaching inn. It was from here that the horse drawn coaches ferried travellers to and from Charfield train station. The Swan was frequented by commercial travellers and others connected with the various mills and factories in the area.
Until the mid-18th century, the Hotel was joined by a covered bridge at first floor level to a house on the opposite side of Market Street, entering the Swan where the two dummy windows are to the right of the door way. Up until well into the 19th century The Swan Hotel, along with The Star and The Crown, were the venues for the Mayor and Aldermen`s annual feast. These dignitaries processed along Market Street from the court to enjoy their feast.
In the mid 1970s, the Swan Hotel was extended along Market Street as part of the rebuilding of this side of the street. The scheme won an architectural heritage award.
An advertisement in 1907 called the Swan ‘one of the best and most comfortable in the district, with passengers met from every train calling at Charfield station on the Midland Railway.’
Many celebrities have stayed in the hotel whilst filming in the area David Niven, Vincent Price, Dick Emery, Wendy Craig, Rex Harrison (when he was filming Dr Doolittle) and Jean Alexander (Hilda Ogden). When the BBC were recording an episode of the radio programme ‘Any Questions’ at the Blue Coat School in Wotton Under Edge in the 1970s, David Jacobs and his guests Margaret Thatcher and Sheila Hancock enjoyed a meal in the Swan.
The Two Ronnies also ate at the Swan when they were recording their ‘Two Old Men’ sketch at Berkeley Castle.
The Swan once held regular dances and the Roger Pearce Trio was resident at the hotel for thirty years.
In closing, we still attract famous faces, this year saw novelist J.K Rowling (best known as the author of the Harry Potter fantasy series) enjoy a relaxing break with us here at The Swan.
PLEASE NOTE: Hotel can offer a transfer service, please enquire for more details and prices.
