Our menu changes frequently as we use local seasonal produce. We try to keep the website copy up to date but availability of some dishes may change day to day.

On busy days, we occasionally need to stop offering bar food to 'walk in' customers for a short period to allow the kitchen to catch up with orders.


Christmas at The Henny Swan

With log fires, a 'chocolate-box' setting, beautiful decorations, and a warm welcome, we have plenty to offer for the festive season.

On The Water

Visiting us by Water

You can visit us by canoe, kayak etc. Please 'park' your boat in the garden so the decking areas remain clear.

Boat Launching - Please read carefully:

Parking space has become an issue, please don't rely on launching here as parking preference will be given to patrons who remain on the premises. Our overflow car park is locked until the pub opens.

Subject to available parking, launching/return is generally permitted Monday to Friday from 10:30am. Over the weekend, launching is available once the pub opens (11:30 Saturday, 12:00 Sunday). The riverside garden closes at dusk so you must be back by then.

Please come and see us before launching any craft. There is a £5 charge per person to launch that can be redeemed at full value on purchases at the bar on the date issued.

Things change from time to time, so please check here regularly.

At peak times (especially when the weather is good) we struggle to deal with the number of booking enquiries we receive and may not be able to get back to you that day, so please contact us well in advance if you can. Please leave as many details as possible so we can assist you more quickly

Good to know
