The Swan Inn, Lechlade, Gloucestershire   Leave a comment

The Swan is contained in a gorgeous building with care taken to preserve the architectural integrity and a friendly host and a tie to an awesome microbrewery over in Coleshill (the Old Forge).  Everything seems to be done right to make this a welcoming local and yet the atmosphere reeks of middle class smugness.  I don’t get it, as I really want to feel comfortable in the place but something just doesn’t seem right.

I was happy with my beer, and it was a good price.  The four tables of yuppies near the open fire each had a well-behaved dog but I guess the problem was largely that the four well-behaved dogs each was surrounded by tables full of yuppies.  Worth a visit for the building and maybe I just hit it on an off-cycle…I’d return for the Old Forge ales, at least.
