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!

    My partner and I had an early valentine's day meal booked for the white swan, and we were not disappointed. Most of the food was absolutely brilliant, and I really appreciate the use of local ingredients and game meat used in the game terrine and venison sausages! My only complaint was that the broccoli and blue cheese soup was more like water than a soup, which was a shame. Dessert option were fantastic, and our cheesecake and crumble were out of this world We would love to return! 4/5****

    Excellent pub; great beer and superlative food. I had the sea bream and my partner had venison sausages. Followed by cheesecake (shared). We both agreed that these were among the best pub meals we have ever had. We are staying in the area for a week and this place is a great find.

    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.

    Lovely building, it was decorated beautifully for Christmas. Parking is limited but we managed to find a spot up the road. The people behind the bar were welcoming and made an effort to put Christmas decorations on our table as we had the festive menu. We were let down by our food unfortunately. I had the Brie wedges for starter which were nice but very simple and i felt were no better than ones you could buy from the supermarket. My partner had the spiced cranberry chicken wings. The sauce was very sour and because of the amount of sauce he struggled to eat them because you couldn’t pick them up and cutting the meat off of the bone was difficult. For main we both had the turkey roast. Meat and pigs in blankets were lovely!! Veg was very hard.only just cooked and roast potatoes weren’t crispy. Could have had more gravy too, red cabbage was really nice though. We felt the food let this place down as service was good overall. There was a lady training and I felt she should have been shadowing as she wasn’t sure what to ask us and when asked if I wanted a starter and I’d given my order she was already walking away before my partner could order his. We would return to try the normal menu because that looked really lovely.

    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.

    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!
