A historical Cheshire inn has reopened its doors following significant refurbishment, with an updated menu and brand new Josper fire oven.
The Swan, in Taporley, has benefited from huge investment from its owners 16 Hospitality and also boasts a new look that highlights its 16th century roots,
The new interior celebrates the building’s original features, such as the open log-burning fire and exposed beams, while modern touches have also been incorporated, with a contemporary colour palette, glass displays and images taken by local photographer, Helen Baly.
The radical menu overhaul sees a host of new grills from the Josper indoor barbeque, and “hearty hotpots packed full of flavour and taste.”
Stuart Norman, development chef for The Swan, explained: “The exciting addition of our new indoor barbeque offers diners a range of quality meats to choose from, infusing them with an authentic, smoked taste.
“Customers can expect their plate to be full of fresh, quality ingredients, unhampered by any fuss or frills. We can’t wait for guests to sample the new dishes and hopefully impress them with our take on great pub food.”
Edward Barlow, founder of 16 Hospitality, who currently own five pubs across Cheshire and Anglesey, described his excitement about the new development.
He stated: “We strive to provide guests with a bolthole where everyone feels welcome, whatever their age, stage or requirements, and consistently provide them with great food and service.
“This renovation has given us the opportunity to better service our wide range of guests and the new food options have been selected for their focus on taste and quality ingredients.
“It is part of our strategy to continuously develop our sites and services, with plans to expand our portfolio in the North West in the very near future – watch this space!”
