WELCOME TO A VERY UNIQUE PUB

A very warm welcome to The Swan in Clewer, Windsor and a winner of a Great British Pub Award in 2020. This enchanting 18th century pub is now owned by the local community and has just recently re-opened after being refurbished. It's unique - within its walls it is also home to a school and will in the future boast a B&B and dining facilities. See what we have achieved via our Annual Reviews.

A PLACE FOR EDUCATION

The Green Room School's Graduate and Sixth Year programmes are a huge part of what the community are investing in. The aim is to provide students with opportunities so they can move on to further education, employment or their own business ventures. This makes The Swan unique in the UK.

A Place Soaked in History

A PLACE SOAKED IN HISTORY

The Swan always been more than just a watering hole for thirsty locals. Situated on Mill Lane within the Clewer Village area of Windsor, it's a leisurely 20 minute walk from Windsor Castle. The Swan dates from the 18th century, and during its long history has served as a coaching inn and courthouse. It's also been known variously as The Swan Inn and The Swan Hotel too.

A Place Connected with the Church ... Literally?

Our local church, St Andrews

A PLACE CONNECTED WITH THE CHURCH ... LITERALLY?

According to local folklore, there is a tunnel linking The Swan to the local church of St Andrews. There is a debris filled hole within the pub which is claimed to be the entrance. Whether this is true, or one of the Victorian pranks common in Windsor, is unclear. Around the 1870s, the coroner held inquests and post mortems at The Swan for those that had drowned in the nearby Thames. It is said that the last journey of those unfortunate souls was through the tunnel to the church.

A Place for Exercise and Sport

A PLACE FOR EXCERCISE AND SPORT

Being close to the Thames Path for walkers, exciting cycle routes throughout Windsor and closeby, and the Royal Windsor Racecourse means that this community hub is never too far from the action.

A PLACE THAT IS OURS

The local community have bought this gorgeous 18th century pub and have started renovating it. So far we've completed The Bar, The School House and The Coach House. Further phases will address The Kitchen, The B&B and The Stables. Our vision is to restore The Swan as a local pub, a real community hub and as a social enterprise assisting young people with additional needs. The renovation work required is being funded by the local community and through charitable donations and awards.
