Grade II listed and centuries old, a tremendous sense of history emanates from every part of The White Swan. Yet after extensive yet careful renovations in 2012, now seamlessly blends the old with the new. Leaded windows, oak beams and four poster beds are juxtaposed with the latest modern conveniences, such as iPod docks, media hubs and Sky TV.  

Shakespearean quotes fit comfortably with commissioned art from local Stratford artists. Diners can enjoy a little piece of classic England with an Afternoon Tea or opt for a meal that mixes traditional English cuisine with tastes from around the world. Or how about sampling from The White Swan's range of iconic, award-winning real ales?
