Earlier this month, Cheshire Coaching inn The Swan in Tarporley, has reopened its doors with a fresh new look “sympathetic” to its 16th Century roots.
The pub owners, 16 Hospitality has celebrated the building’s original features, such as the open log-burning fire and exposed beams. Modern touches have been incorporated, with a contemporary colour palette, glass display and stunning images taken by local photographer, Helen Baly.
The menu has also received an overhaul, featuring grills and hearty hotpots packed full of flavour and taste, reminiscent of its coaching inn roots. Going back to basics, this new menu celebrates the “essential requirement” any diner needs for an enjoyable meal – taste. Favourites include one pot chicken, slow-cooked oxtail casserole and grilled peach and arugula Salad.
In addition to the restaurant and bar facilities, The Swan also boasts 16 guest rooms.
Edward Barlow, founder of 16 Hospitality, said: “We strive to provide guests with a bolthole where everyone feels welcome, whatever their age, stage or requirements, and consistently provide them with great food and service.
“This renovation has given us the opportunity to better service our wide range of guests and the new food options have been selected for their focus on taste and quality ingredients.”
