For our Somerset pub of the week this week we have travelled to the village of Winscombe in the beautiful Mendips for a real country getaway.
Not far from Cheddar, Weston-super-Mare, Bath or Bristol, it is a lovely pub with great walks nearby, a real destination place to go with the family – and the dog.
The Swan Inn is in a stunning Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the heart of the Mendips, so why not leave plenty of time for a walk before a nice hearty lunch in this lovely Butcombe run country pub?

Located in Rowberrow, Winscombe, on the edge of the Mendip Hills, The Swan is a 17th century Grade II-listed pub and inn, brimming with history and a cosy, welcoming vibe.
A haven for locals, walkers, cyclists and visitors, the recent addition of five stunning boutique bedrooms above the pub, and a further four dog friendly rooms in its converted barns (one accessible), makes The Swan the ideal spot for a rural retreat, family break or staycation.
The landlords are passionate about great food and drink, with an all day menu focused on seasonal local produce, delicious pub classics, flatbread pizza fresh from the oven, and plenty of award-winning Butcombe beer on the taps.

In the warmer months the large beer garden is ideal for al fresco dining, or soaking up some sunshine over a few pints.
Located just seven miles from Bristol Airport and 15 miles from Bristol Temple Meads train station, The Swan is the perfect base for exploring Bristol, Somerset, and the world class walking, cycling and dog walking opportunities in and around the Mendips. Other local attractions include Cheddar Gorge, Wookey Hole Caves, Glastonbury Tor and Ashton Gate Stadium.
