The White Swan has stood on the village green since the 1600’s and is in the final stages of a complete refurbishment. Being closed since 2018, the community was disheartened to learn that their local pub would be closing.

In early 2021, the community came together to get The White Swan reopened, involving the whole village. They have worked together to purchase, rebuild and bring The White Swan back to life. Reopening in May 2022, we want to bring you the best. Our drinks poured with perfection, our menu made unique, seasonal and made with passion. Everything sourced locally. We’re proud to serve you local goodness.

Dog Rules: Dogs only in bar area and beer garden, please leave note when booking that you require a dog friendly table!

    Family invited us over to this lovely community pub- and we were all impressed! Quaint characterful - yet modern, it was sympathetically renovated . The White Swan's been in Gressenhall for over 500 years but in 2019 to save its future as the last remaining pub in the village it was purchased by the community. Over 6000 hours of volunteer work has created a beautiful village pub. Food is fresh and local. We had a buffet of mini fish, chicken and bowls of chips: was very nice, not greasy, was hot, moist, crispy and tasty. Generous portions. Bowls olives and cheese yum! I've been informed there was a good range of beers, many regional. Orchard Pig cider on tap (not local!) was pleasantly bubbly- medium dry/sweet, 4.3% Suitable for vegans and gluten free. Lovely community pub supporting local community with friendly staff. Fab place we'd go again.

    Superb village community pub. Beautiful from the outside, now an asset to the green with an interesting interior, clean and modern but still retains the character of a village pub. Food was superb (we all had Hunters Chicken with desserts). The service at lunchtime was fabulous - the lady at the bar made us feel like old friends and was attentive but not intrusive. We loved our visit here and hopefully will go again soon.

    Our experience at The White Swan will definitely be a talking point with friends and family. The food was beautifully presented, the portions generous and the chef is definitely doing something right as the meal was absolutely delicious. We’d like to give a special mention to Tilly who was just amazing as she done everything possible to make sure that we had a lovely evening. Nothing was too much trouble and her positive and friendly approach was truly refreshing. We will definitely be returning in the very near future.

    A lovely village pub providing excellent food in a welcoming atmosphere. Superb choice of large portions of freshly cooked food (with allergens detailed on the extensive menu.) Friendly staff, great decor, dogs welcome. A great experience. We will definitely go back. Highly recommend the fish and chips.

    Came across this pub by chance when exploring the local area. Lots of dog water bowls around, and I was welcomed into the bar. My hoomans had an amazing lunch, and the pork belly bites they let me try were delicious! I’d recommend this pub to anyone or any dog, it was pawsome!
