The Swan at Southrop
Locally distinct brews, wines and non-alcoholic drinks lead to an interesting drinks menu, with wines available by the glass, carafe or bottle and the house wine on tap. Our seasonal table menu ensures a country pub feel which has a good choice of simple, rustic dishes as well as your pub classic dishes.
The Swan at Southrop is complete with traditional bar, low-ceilinged restaurant and further tables in a spacious garden room which opens to 2 courtyards. Sofas, open fires and a snug for more intimate dining create a charmingly rustic setting.
In idyllic Gloucestershire, The Swan is a quintessential English village pub on the Southrop Manor Estate.

Good atmosphere which is why we have returned several times with an imaginative menu and good food and service
This being a local pub to us we eat here on many occasions and never disappoints. The food is excellent and the staff are very friendly. I would definitely recommend.
Coming from Scotland this was what we 'Northerners' saw as the quintessential Cotswold pub. Great atmosphere, excellent food and nice people. The men had the roast beef and the ladies the ploughmans. Would come back. Deffo
Poor slow service, no atmosphere or ambiance in the new dining area, too sterile, whilst 2 of us were eating starters ( 2 did not order starters ) their mains came sane time. Sadly two guests could not join us ( our fault) but no suggestion or offer to move us to a smaller more suitable table where we could actually speak to each other instead of a huge, round, impractical table. A very disappointing evening at what used to be a very special place for us .
Outstanding quality food, with great flavours. The service was superb, charming and knowledgeable staff
We were made very welcome. Unfortunately after we had ordered there was a problem with their gas, so our meal became rather protracted....however we were kept up to date with the progress in the kitchen, and were quite happy to enjoy our drinks and the lovely log fire.
When the food arrived it was delicious, with wonderful use of seasonal produce. Staff were very attentive, and to our surprise 25% was taken off our bill for the delay, which we hadn’t minded at all.
A lovely setting, good service with excellent food, the roast beef was delicious together with the roast potatoes, Yorkshire pud and a great selection of vegetables, one of the best in the area. Thank you!
Delicious lunch sitting cosily by one of two open fires. The hake was perfectly cooked and the whole dish divine!
One of the best Sunday Roast's I have had! The pork was melt in your mouth....the roasties were super crunchy even though they were swimming in fabulous gravy! Starter of a scotch egg was perfect! Service was a bit fast although polite. Will return!!
Not really a local pub anymore, more a dinning room extension to the Thyme Empire. Try the pubs in Eastleach or Coln if you want more of a local experience, instead of a London bistro style at The Swan in the Cotswolds.
Wonderful lunch! Hyde is also very pretty so definitely worth visiting the pub and having a quick look around.
Great food, delightful setting, good service. We're lucky enough to have this as our 'local' – although it would be well worth a trip if we were further afield.
Poor service , cold food cold plates and only average quality food. Pity as used to be good
Came for my brother’s birthday after a countryside walk with my dog. Food was excellent and service was impeccable - we brought in a homemade cake that they very kindly brought out after food with candles on!
We had a lovely sunday lunch, sat by the fire in the cosy main part of the pub
We had a child and a baby with us and both were well catered for - great kids menu and friendly staff
The wine and food was delicious - particularly the starters and the sticky toffee pudding
Fabulous family lunch at the Swan. Yummy food, great service and good friendly atmosphere. Would definitely go again and would like to visit some of the other Thyme properties.
Always great, reliable and friendly.... really worth a visit!
Great meal in a lovelly place with really good staff!
Really lovely food but thought the hake dish needed more seasoning and we both felt that the portions of the starters and main were a bit small (4 bits of ravioli). The staff were lovely, friendly and helpful
I would recommend to someone that was already going to be staying at Thyme Hotel. However the Sunday Lunch was not the best, in particular the vegetables were just cooked in a bizarre manor and had an overpowering taste that ruined the natural flavours.
Best thing we ordered was the Scotch Egg to start. Fish cakes were also pretty good, but I feel there is room for improvement on the main attraction for Sunday Lunch.
Other than that, staff were incredibly nice, the pub itself is lovely and the service was great.
Nice country pub part of the Thyme group. The food was overall very good, however the sticky toffee pudding was a little dry. I think my expectations were higher due to it being part of thyme but overall it was a nice country pub with good food.
Love the fact there is a wonderful specific vegan menu. Food excellent, wine excellent and they bend over backwards to make your mean special. This was especially noteworth as one of my party is someone who always wants to 'tweak' the menu!
This is great food well executed and with good options for vegetarians too. The cheese portions were a bit mean but otherwise generous portions.
A comfortable and warming pub with very welcoming staff. The food was lovely and not rushed at all. First visit here in a few years and will definitely return. Thank you for a extremely pleasant evening.
Good food and very enjoyable evening
Had the most fabulous birthday dinner. Had drinks in Thyme then walked down to Swan. Food couldn’t be better. My husband (whose birthday it was) said it was the best bernaise sauce he had ever had!
The food was exceptional and great service too.
We will definitely return very soon.
Thanks for a great evening
Excellent food with a diverse menu. Charming and not too crowded.
Fantastic food and excellent service. Restaurant was very quiet but it was a Monday afternoon. We will return.
Really enjoyed our meal, lovely ambience, friendly staff. We went for a birthday celebration, this is my second visit and I introduced the pub to some friends. we all had a great evening thank you
The Swan is a lovely country pub with excellent food and gracious hosts. We had tricky dietary issues and they handled them really well. I can recommend this place for gluten free options. The menu was varied and we could happily have chosen almost everything on the menu. Highly recommended.
The fresh ingredients freshly cooked were to dye for.
The waiting was pretty long but when the food came it was a bless.
our mains were stuffed pepper and char grilled minute. Delicious!
All excellent but service was a bit slow. Fortunately we were not in a hurry.
Lovely meal and friendly service. Would recommend.
We arrived on time and were shown to our table but then had to wait 10 mins before we were able to order water and bread. We then waited another 10mins before we got the water and the waitress told us at that point that they were very busy and there would be a wait for our food so we placed our food orders then. One table of 2 came in after us and actually had their main course and dessert before our starters arrived an hour after we sat down. The food was also mediocre.
Bearing in mind the reviews showed this to have a red M we were surprised that they were not able to cope with a 3/4 full restaurant and that the standard of the food was below par.
Excellent menu choice and staff were knowledgable about the food and wine.
Great Cotswold pub. Will definitely be back.
Fab food and atmosphere ss always
And very friendly staff
It was ok - the chicken pie had filo pastry - it is very dark
Chicken pie was pastry and air, distinct lack of chicken. At what point does a pub (for yes it is a pub) introduce a service charge, what’s the rationale, what makes it different from every other pub, if it’s a restaurant then just call it that, London bad habits in the Cotswolds - not justified.
A chicken pie becomes £20 with th service charge - stop kidding yourselves.
We waited for 1 hour for the starter to arrive. The starter was good however the moment we finished eating the starter the plates were whipped away and the main course placed on the table. We had the chicken and bacon pie to share. The accompanying vegetables cold and undercooked. All in all a very disappointing evening and we will not be returning.
Waiting staff were courteous and pleasant clearly not there problem. The manager did reduce our bill but this did not compensate us for a spoilt evening.
