Bradford on Avon’s oldest pub reopens after week-long makeover


One of the oldest licensed pubs in Bradford on Avon has reopened following a week-long makeover of its restaurant and bar.

The Swan Hotel dates back to the mid-1700s, while the building itself has been on the Church Street site since the 1500s and closed this month for the first time in 10 years.

The 12-bedroom hotel and pub business was taken over five years ago by new owners and has now unveiled its new-look Thai-inspired restaurant and pub.

The hotel has also increased the number of Thai chefs in its workforce to four.

The interiors now pay homage to the building’s history, with old photographs and memorabilia from its past, supported by archive materials from the Wiltshire & Swindon History Centre in Chippenham, Ex Libris Books in The Shambles and Bradford on Avon Museum.

James Sullivan-Tailyour, spokesman for the Swan Hotel, said: “We have decorated the walls with old photographs, documents and other memorabilia.
