• WELCOME

    Hearty food, warm welcome; a true English pub

    COUNTRYSIDE ALLIANCE 'RURAL OSCARS' PUB OF THE YEAR UK

  • ABOUT US

    Peter & Emma

    Landlords

    We have lived Enford for the last 14 years - The Swan was our first port of call after moving in! When faced with the move nearer to work in Hampshire, we struggled with the idea of leaving our beautiful village behind.

    Luckily Pete's experience in a busy pub and many years as a Head Chef stood us in good stead when The Swan came up!

    Emma still works in Hampshire but can often be found behind the bar or upstairs doing the paperwork!

    Digger & Pickle

    The noisy ones

    Digger and Pickle are the pub's resident noisy duo and, during opening hours, can often be heard thundering down the hallway corridor upstairs or giving a friendly bark to the other dogs that visit The Swan.

    They're very friendly and give great hugs but will soon lead you to the treats tin that's behind the bar! When they are allowed down at the end of a shift, they can be found watching the windows carefully to welcome any visitors!

    The Swan

    Our community hub

    The Swan has stood for over 350 years in our little village of Enford which sits on the River Avon, just 7 miles north of Stonehenge.  It has seen many changes in this time as the village has grown from a small farming community to a popular home for locals and commuters alike.  When you visit us, we take pleasure in sharing this heritage with you.  The photos and postcards you'll see in the pub are copies of ones loaned to us by villagers who have lived in and around Enford for many years or from keen collectors of local history memorabilia.  Some even date back to the late 1800s. 

     

    As the villagers watched their local bakery, garage, post office and shop disappear over time, they were deterined to keep the pub as the village's last remaining amenity.  In fact, the building is still owned by a small group of villagers who are as passionate as we are about our unique public house. 

     

    This is where you find The Swan today.  At the heart of its community.  We serve locals not just from Enford but from the surrounding hamlets of Coombe, Compton and East Chisenbury as well as the larger villages such as Netheravon, Upavon and Durrington.  

     

    Our Grade II listed building has historic significance and is in a conservation area which runs through our pretty village to the south and north.  Swans nest just across the road and are often seen with their cygnets from Enford bridge which links the village to the main A345.  The National Cycle Network also runs directly through Enford and we back onto Salisbury Plain which is a popular walking spot, especially with Pickle & Digger!  We are popular with cyclists, walkers and tourists as well as villagers who all blend together to create a special atmosphere unique to The Swan. 

  • FOOD

    All our food is home made and, wherever possible, locally sourced.

    We work closely with Jack & Charlie at Walter Rose Butchers in Devizes and veg supplier Kenyons, to get the very best available as well as other small producers who believe in the same things we do.

    Lunches

    A light bite or something more substantial

    Proper sandwiches, homemade soup and magnificent omelettes!

     

    Our lunch menu combines our 'Swan favourites' menu of pub classics with a lighter selection of homemade sandwiches, soups and omelettes which can be customised (yes, we even have gluten free bread!)

     

    Download a SAMPLE lunch menu here

     

    Dinner

    Can't be bothered to cook or want to catch up with friends?

    Homemade without the hassle of washing up!

     

    We have a good selection of warm and cold starters to share or keep all to yourself as well as a 'Swan favourites' board full of pub classics which are all homemade by Pete, Frank & George in our kitchen. Lasagne (meat & veggie), sausages made to our own recipe, chilli, salmon goujons or fresh fishcakes and more as well as our own infamous 'Swan's burger' with as much cheese and bacon as you can manage! In addition to this, we have a good range of additional main meals which reflect seasonal availability; game, fish freshly caught or a proper pie handmade by us as well as the choice of the best steaks we can find.

    Pudding

    Someone told me we have a separate stomach for pudding

    It's a good job!

     

    Puddings are all homemade and change frequently. Favourites are Frank's Sticky toffee pudding, Pete's lemon meringue tart and of course, our homemade crumble which varies from traditional rhubarb and custard to sticky toffee apple and everything in between - with homemade custard of course! Our ice creams are all from local supplier Marshfields and you can round off your meal with coffee, specially blended and purchased in partnership with The Food Gallery, Marlborough.

     

    Download a SAMPLE pudding menu here. These change every 3 weeks.

     

    Roasts on Sundays

    Simply legendary

    Why cook when you can go out?

     

    We think there's nothing better than relaxing in a pub with a cold drink and huge roast in the company of family, friends or just on your own, particularly when the fire is roaring and it's cold outside!

     

    We usually have at least 2 roast meats; beef and pork but are also known to have venison or partridge or chicken depending on our local supply. Of course, you can't have pork without crunchy crackling and you can't have beef without yorkshire puds - Pete's a Yorkshire man through and through so knows how to do them well!

  • DRINK

    We've got it all; a proper pint, great wine and everything in between!

     

    We held our inaugural beer festival 'Swanfest' in August 2015 and showcased 20 local beers; in 2016 we showcased 25, from a range of our usual suppliers as well as new ones for you to all test out - the most popular are now stocked in the Swan and we're planning 2018's already!

     

    You can even try them out with our new 'beer flights' - have a third of a pint of 3 different beers all for the price of 1!

     

    To top it off, we've just been awarded the Cask Marque seal of approval for the 2nd year in a row and CAMRA's LocAle award for stocking local beers.

    STONEHENGE ALES

    Brewed less than 2 miles away in Netheravon, Stig, Anne-Marie and their team have brought great Danish brewing techniques to this old brewery and they're our most popular by far.

    Heelstone is our best seller - a deep amber bitter with hints of blackcurrant at 4.3% APV.

    Great Bustard is on at the moment though which gives Heelstone a run for it's money!

    SHED ALES

    Brewed in Pewsey in Gordon's shed (properly of course!), Shed ales are always popular and change with each barrel.

     

    Gord & Sam have opened their own micro pub in Pewsey - an exciting venture! Visit them at www.theshedalehouse.co.uk

    THREE DAGGERS

    We put the 3Daggers Ale on as a trial back in February 2015 and haven't been able to take it off the bar since! It's an easy, amber drink at 4.1%ABV and, it's brewed locally in Edington which is a bonus! Our locals have gone to great lengths to ensure we never run out, even fetching a barrel of it for us direct from the brewery over a bank holiday after drinking us dry the night before!! We regularly stock the 'Daggers Ale' but have been know to try their specialist 'Festival Ale' at 4.2% and 'Daggers edge' at 4.7%.

    KINGSTONE PRESS

    We added to our cider range back in 2016 with Kingstone Press Classic Apple and Kingstone Press Berries - both are extra chilled and super delicious with just enough sparkle.

    If you prefer something a bit more traditional, Thatchers Gold, a classic, is also on tap.

    RAMSBURY BREWERY

    This is a special one! Not only do we get beer from here, we also buy our customer's favourite vodka - homemade on the Ramsbury estate, and now, their new gin too! We love the folks at Ramsbury because they're always onto the next big thing. The vodka is so smooth and the gin so tasty, you'd be forgiven for forgetting about their beer (although that's great too!)

    TWISTED BREWERY

    This fantastic micro-brewery, under the White Horse at Westbury in Wiltshire, was a chance entry onto our Swanfest list in 2015 and we haven't looked back. Goucho (4.6% ABV), a ruby ale, is our favourite but we are spoilt for choice! The team at Twisted produce great session ales and we love their beer badges too!

    PLAIN ALES

    You can't be in the beer world and ignore the might of Plain Ales. Their Inncognito has won almost every award going and when we put on our favourites; Innocence & Innspiration, they fly out! Plus, they're really local; Sutton Veny in the middle of Salisbury Plains. Bonus!

    WINEUTOPIA

    Our partnership with WineUtopia began after Emma paid a visit to their Stockbridge shop in the search of Test Valley Gin.

    Their wine range is amazing and we work closely with Richard, their on-trade manager, to make sure we have the best selection of wines available. We've also added to our port range as this is a popular favourite and we are very proud to stock wine from Danbury Vineyard which is less than 30 miles from our pub. You can try their lovely crisp white or a sparkling English wine knowing that it's so local you can get there in 20 minutes.

  • OUR SUPPLIERS

    We believe in serving the best food that comes from the best ingredients we can find and, where possible, this being local. We're learning all the time and always on the lookout for a new supplier to provide us with something that's local and that extends beyond the food too. As we've been updating the pub and giving the building that little bit of love that it has needed for so long, we sought out some of the best local business people and trades.

    Food

    No pub is a proper pub anymore without a good food offer and we are extremely loyal to our suppliers, many of whom have worked with Pete over the past 15 years. We've also really enjoyed finding out what suppliers are local to us and making sure we support them too.

    Drink

    Without decent beer (that's well kept of course) and a range of wines and soft drinks to suit all palates and pockets. you can find our suppliers listed by clicking above.

    Building bits

    Living and working in a grade II listed building requires a good deal of dedication, pennies and being completely honest with yourself about your limits. Find out who we've worked with to restore our beautiful old pub.

    The wall in the photo opposite became damp after we lined the chimney and when our cob man took it back to brick, we discovered an original beam, hidden cubby hole and part of the original foundations!  Needless to say, we've restored them so that you can have a sneaky peek at the old building as well as traditional cob and lime mortar plaster. 

    Our other partners

    From the decorations around the fireplace to the framed pictures, printing, Swanfest partners and many more. 

  • OUR SUPPLIERS ~ FOOD

    Delicious, home-made, home-cooked food is what we're all about (and good beer of course).

    Walter Rose & Sons - Butcher

    We've teamed up with award winning Devizes based butchers and just love working with Charlie, Jack and the team to provide you with the best meat we can source. We love the fact that the beef, pork, chicken and anything else from them can be sourced directly back to the farm the animals were reared on and this helps us provide great quality time after time.

     

    Kenyons - Fruit & vegetables

    Niki, Steve and Jason work the longest hours we know to provide us and lots of local businesses with the best fruit and veg. Niki will often pop a few extras of something in our order which will later turn up on the menu as something exciting. They're based in Andover and deliver to other restaurants, pubs and greengrocers.

     

    James Waight- meat - as local as you can get!

    When James, our local farmer, approached us about stocking some of his pork and beef, we jumped at the chance but our local venison also comes from him too and he lives and farms in Enford.

     

    Hunts - dry goods

    All of our core ingredients such as flours, herbs as well the crisps and peanuts for the bar come from this Dorset based, family grown foods supplier. Pete has worked with Hunt's for many years and trusts their high quality and prompt service.

     

    Fjordlings smokehouse

    This tiny company, steeped in tradition, have just moved from Fordingbridge to Romsey and supply us with delicious smoked trout, chicken and duck for our salads and some of our starters.

  • OUR SUPPLIERS ~ DRINKS

    Where would we be without good beer and a range of good wines and soft drinks?

    Stonehenge Ales - 1 mile away!

    Stig and his small team produce our most popular cask ale by hand less than a mile away. Based at the mill in Netheravon, we sell around 140 pints of this beautiful beer each week. You can even arrange for a brewery tour of your own.

    www.stonehengeales.co.uk

     

    Shed Ales - 6 miles away

    Gord and Sam are the most important people in Pewsey we think! They brew 'Shed Ales' in their purpose built shed and have even opened their own micro-pub in Pewsey. Our favourites are 'Shed some light' and the very special, very rare, Blackberry Porter. 2015 was their most successful year yet with several CAMRA awards for their home produced craft ales.

    www.theshedalehouse.com

     

    Three Daggers - 13 miles away

    One of our customers recommended the three daggers brewery to us and we put it on as a trial over a year ago - we haven't been able to take it off since! A classic amber ale is always on tap and you can arrange for an evening in their brewery as well as a shop in their on site, award-winning farm shop.

    www.threedaggers.co.uk

     

    Marstons - all over the place!

    We have worked closely with David and the team at Marstons since moving into The Swan and they have been first class at giving us a helping hand and guiding our ale choices. We love Marstons because although they own many of the smaller brewers, Ringwood, Jennings, Banks etc, they have allowed these smaller brewers to retain their own characters. Our lagers, cider and some beers come from them.

     

    Swallo

    This Somerset soft drinks company are our go-to for our Coke, Lemonade and Diet Coke. Super reliable and great tasting, they keep us going all year round.

     

    WineUtopia

    Don't be misled by their shop in Stockbridge, WineUtopia may be small but they are perfectly formed! Based only 40 miles from us, they source wine from around the globe, ensuring we get to hear about new things first and always have a great selection in stock. We were so impressed by Richard's knowledge and clear passion to get even a non-drinker drinking that we went with them and formed a whole new wine menu. Being that their shop is in Stockbridge, they work closely with Danebury Vineyards and we proudly stock English wines made only 30 miles away.

    www.wineutopia.co.uk

     

    Nectar

    We used to buy our soft drinks and spirits from a range of suppliers far away but found that Nectar's growth in this market was only bettered by the fact that they are so local to us. We are a small business and we love local so why not support them and they support us?! Although we stock soft drinks from all over the place, they all come through a local firm. Can't beat that!

     

     

  • OUR BUILDING PARTNERS

    Who knew that there would be so much to do on an old building. Not quite Grand Designs but certainly a labour of love! We are so grateful to all the people who have been so patient with us as we've learnt new things about restoring a beautiful old building.

    TurnItRound - Property maintenance

    Emma's dad Richard has been, at times, the only ray of sunshine when we've had burst pipes and damp walls. They are no more as he has worked his wonderful magic on the building as well as the back and front gardens, drains, gutters, plumbing, painting, get the picture? It takes a very special someone to be able to turn their hand to all these jobs which are immediate as well as having an eye on the longer term needs of an old building.

    www.turnitround.co.uk

     

    Adam Nash - Master thatcher

    Adam and his team came to us in August 2014 when our thatch leaked very badly. They stopped other jobs and prioritised the pub as the roof wouldn't make it through the winter and by the end of November, we had the most beautiful, newly thatched roof. It was a pleasure watching it be transformed as well as being educated in this incredible trade. Truly a master craftsman.

    www.adamnashthatcher.co.uk

     

    Bits & Pieces - DIY store

    You know those old fashioned stores that sell a bit of everything you need and if not, can get hold of it in a jiffy AND they deliver AND they're only in Durrington!! From screws to Christmas trees, Paul has it all in his shop (and his daughter Jemma works for us too!)

    01980 655552

     

    RGV Engineering - plumbing, heating and electrical engineers

    A really local business only 1 mile away have helped us through the colder months by installing a brand new boiler and sorting our very ancient heating system.

    www.rgvengineering.co.uk

     

    Juan & Stuart Rolfe - Painter Decorators

    Our angels in painting aprons! Juan and Stuart had worked with Emma at her school and were the first people to give us a ray of hope when we moved in. They work through the night to make miracles happen and transformed the pub from a dark old building into a beautiful, Farrow & Ball green country pub!

     

    Semral Gladwin - Upholstery

    Sam has worked her magic to reinvigorate our tired furniture and it's now covered in beautiful cognac leather and Moon & Son tweed.

     

    PJ Wilshire builders

    This Upavon based 3-man-band of Pete, Martin and Colin were our saviours in 2015 and rebuilt our massive, retaining wall in the back garden in double quick time so that we, and our customers, could enjoy the summer out there.

     

    JK Carpets - Durrington

    For a small shop, they have an amazing choice of floors and have helped to make our upstairs feel like a home again. Jason & Kevin are just the best carpet fitters who get it all done in a jiffy - even our tricky stairs that everyone else said 'couldn't be done'.

    http://www.jkcarpetsandflooringltd.co.uk

     

    Tree Technique

    If you knew the pub or village of old, you'd know that some massive Leylandii had taken up residence outside the pub and overgrown the telegraph pole, the water meter and half of the car park. Lee and his team sorted this for us and now the village has sight of our beautiful roof and the car park has gained an extra space! And they're local - based in Amesbury.

    www.treetechnique.com

     

    Wiltshire hurdles - Market Lavington

    By removing the huge trees near the car park, not only was blue sky revealed but also our gas bottles, oil tank and various other, unsightly bits that keep the pub functioning. Bill and Debbie handbuilt our beautiful hazel hurdle fencing that runs over the edge of the car park and restores the pub to it's former pretty outlook. Plus gives our neighbours a nicer view!

    www.wiltshurdles.co.uk

     

  • OTHER SUPPLIERS

    If we've missed anyone out - we're sorry! Please let us know.  

    We couldn't have done it without these very special little (and big) businesses and continue to use them and any others to bring all of our customers a great English pub experience. 

    These Fair Hands - Hampshire

    Emma spotted Paul from These Fair Hnds at a craft show and loved his work instantly so we commissioned him to create our beer bats (see the photos on the drinks page of our website. We love them and so do our visitors as it means they can try three beers at once! www.thesefairhands.co.uk

     

    Unstuck design - Salisbury

    We knew the moment we stepped into the design studio tucked away into the little barn in Upper Woodford that we would love working with Unstuck and we haven't been disappointed. James and his team (including the brilliant Paul and Bexi) have listened to what we want and come up with things that totally reflect us and our style. www.unstuckdesign.co.uk

     

    Garden Inn - Stockbridge

    So, a little further out than normal but the lovely ladies at the Garden Inn help Emma to get the flowers for the pub spot on.

    www.garden-inn.co.uk

     

    Karin's flowers - Durrington

    Many of you comment on our beautiful wreaths which hang from both our front doors each season. Inspired by images collected on Pinterest, Emma approached Karin and asked her to create her own take on these collective images. They're beautiful and last for months.

    www.karinsflowers.co.uk

     

    Original Glory - Framers in Devizes

    Although a tiny shop front, this is an aladdin's cave of Farrow and Ball paints plus frames and mounts for pictures. We've used them on several occasions and are always pleased with the result.

    www.originalglory.co.uk

     

    Barbara Leatham Photography

    99% of the photos on our website are Barbara's. Her patience, energy and ability to see things from all kinds of angles and think of things we'd never considered are second to none. Highly recommended.

    Best of British - it's official

    Voted Countryside Alliance British Pub Champion 2017

    It's all about community, great beer and good food

     

    This award is really special to us as it celebrates all that is good rurally and that's what we're passionate about. We are committed to using local suppliers, listening to the needs of our community and trying hard to accommodate what they want from our rural setting. We were overwhelmed when we were nominated and got through to win the regional South West finals but had no idea that we'd be crowned British Champion of these 'Rural Oscars'. This award goes much further than just Pete and Emma, it's the whole community and all the people who've worked so hard for us since we began here in July 2014 - thank you to one and all!

    We will simply continue doing what we do best and welcoming one and all, trying not to say no to new ideas and keep putting the countryside and community and the heart of it all.  

    Easy wind and downy flake

    Snow has found our village and looks set to stay for a while

    We've been waiting for a snow photo of the pub for 4 years and finally, we have it! This one was taken on Thurs 1 March at about 5pm when the light was fading but the cosiness of the pub shone as the beacon of light in the village. We're open throughout the snow and even having a new floor laid in the bar area but beers, wines and a bit of a laughter await those who dare to brave the snow.

    Brand new kitchen!

    Our old kitchen was dragged into the 21st Century!

    We've been in the pub for 3 and a half years and the kitchen was beginning to show it's age - the team were using just 3 hobs (you probably have more at home) and an oven that only worked on one side and the top shelf. The grill had seen better days too BUT, October 2017 saw the dawn of a brand new kitchen.

    An old cupboard was knocked out to create one long prep space (With 3 full time chefs, we also needed more space), a new Rationale oven installed (at extortionate cost but Pete assures us it's worth it!), a new 6 burner oven replaced our tired old one and new cladding on the wall and non-slip flooring topped it all off.

    We regularly cook for almost 100 people a day and Christmas 2017 saw us smash all of our previous records for people served. We host parties of 20-40 people for various functions and the new kitchen means we can food to you quicker and more consistently.

    It was certainly worth the wait!

    50 years of Barrel emptying!

    Sheriff, our lovely local reaches an important milestone

    Every pub has a group of locals that really make the pub special. We are no different.

     

    Sheriff (really called Dave) has been drinking in The Swan for 50 years - na incredible milestone. He is our 'go to' for all things Swan and Enford related and has seen the pub go through good times and bad. He remembers the old fireplace, helping to clear out the garden, the old staircase that went up through the middle of the pub to the upstairs, the various landlords and comings and goings. He is a walking talking Enford encyclopaedia! Chances are, if you come into the pub on a Friday or Saturday evening or a Sunday lunchtime, you'll meet Sheriff and, although he keeps himself to himself and is (relatively) well behaved (!) he'll have a laugh and point out the good beers to try.

    Wiltshire Life - BEST PUB OF THE YEAR!!

    Awarded in March 2017

    We are so honoured to have been voted Wiltshire Life's Pub of the Year 2017. Who would have thought that it could ever be us?! We absolutely love Wiltshire, are very proud to call it home and very proud to serve Wiltshire food to both our local customers and those who visit us from farther afield. The award is a great recognition of all that we do but also of our customer's passion for all things Wiltshire too and their unrelenting enthusiasm for the pub and village life. We are very, very lucky in this day and age to have such a fabulous staff and be a popular pub - the statistics of pubs closing every week are staggering and we're delighted to be battling against this. Thank you!

    Conker competition!

    Who said conkers were for children?!

    Some boys just never really grow up!

     

    Each month our fireplace is redecorated to reflect the season or events. On spying the conkers on the fireplace for autumn, these naughty chaps from the First Thursday Club couldn't resist and were soon skewering holes in them, stealing laces from their shoes and playing conkers. Hume had even brought conkers from home (I wonder if his sons spotted them missing?!).

    Simon emerged victorious in the inaugural competition in 2016 but Johnnie won in 2017 so it's all up for grabs in the autumn of 2018! We did spy the cheating though - stealing them from the fireplace once they're baked nice and hard is not really fair is it?!!!

    Stocking Local Ales ALL the time

    Keeping it local is so important

    It was fantastic to receive CAMRA recognition for our pursuit of fine ales recently. The LocAle award means that we permanently stock locally brewed cask ales all supplied by breweries within 30 miles of our pub. We always have something from our most local brewery on tap: Stonehenge Ales (www.stonehengeales.co.uk) and then take from a huge range;

    • Three Daggers at Edington  www.threedaggers.co.uk

    Specialist + scaffold =super cob!

    Our beautiful building needed a bit of 21st century help

    It's amazing what you find when you scratch the surface

     

    Our beautiful building (OK, not looking so lovely in this photo!) needed a new coat! The main part of the pub dates from the 16th century and was made from brick, flint, lime mortar and cob but over the years, has been repainted with modern plastic based paints and taken a bit of a beating. We have worked with Nick Buxcey, cob and lime specialist, to restore the outside of the building to it's former glory. He and his son Harry, have spent many painstaking hours scraping paint from the back and front of the building and are now re-coating with natural lime products and repairing chunks of the damaged wall.

    During the process, we have discovered an old clay pipe, a coin from 1771 buried in the mortar of a later extension of the pub and the original fire insurance plaque from the 1770s!

  • PEDAL POWER

    The beautiful village of Enford in the heart of Salisbury Plains is a great stopping off point for cyclists of all abilities.

    Whether you're cycling from along the next hamlet along our back road or on a mammoth journey, you'll find a warm welcome with us.

    We even have our own cycling group - The Enford Flyers who love exploring our area.

    LONDON TO LAND'S END

    Okay, not for the amateur cyclist perhaps but a brilliant way to see the South of England.

    Refill station

    Our local MP, Claire Perry, asked us if we'd consider being part of the 'refill' app network and of course, we said yes!

    You can fill your water bottles here for free from our cold, filtered tap water which is not only great for walkers and cyclists but more importantly, for the environment as we do away with plastic disposable bottles. Just ask at the bar and we'll happily oblige!
