15th-c building with a lovely old bar, real ales, a fine wine list, excellent food and acres of gardens and grounds; exceptional bedrooms

The unchanging and tranquil little bar in this ancient inn is just the place to head for if a pint and a chat is what you're after. Here, you'll find stools at the wooden counter, Brakspears Oxford Gold, North Cotswold Windrush Ale and Wychwood Hobgoblin on handpump, 15 good wines by the glass from a fine list, 13 whiskies and quite a choice of teas and coffees. Leading off are several attractive low-beamed rooms with big log fires in huge fireplaces, comfortable armchairs, sofas, dining chairs and antique tables, rugs on bare boards or ancient flagstones, antiques, prints, lots of horsebrasses, bed-warming pans, swords, hunting horns and even a suit of armour; also, fresh flowers and board games. There are seats and tables under big parasols on the attractive terrace and they have fishing rights to a mile of the River Windrush, as well as tennis courts, boules and croquet. The bedrooms have plenty of character and some are positively luxurious.

What the licensee says

Expect fresh local ingredients crafted into hearty dishes at the Old Swan; this is the perfect place to enjoy a pie and a pint by the fireside, or a salad on the terrace in the summer. The menu is seasonal and the food is simple, hearty and flavoursome with delicious items available all day. The Old Swan's dining rooms and bars are a myriad of beamed, cosy quarters with roaring log fires and rugged flag-stone floors. There are a choice of dining rooms depending on your numbers, occasion and preference or enjoy the outdoor terrace and picturesque gardens throughout the summer months. Dogs are permitted, with their owners, into the bar area only of the Old Swan where a snack menu is on offer •SPECIAL OFFERS: Visit the website: https://www.oldswanminstermill.co.uk/dining-drinking/food-drink-offers
