About us

The Brickmakers, Swanmore is owned and run by Koren and Gareth Blake, who took over in April 2011. Having worked in catering and hospitality management for the past 20 years they decided to take the leap and branch out on their own – they saw the pub and loved it instantly.

Once moved in they embarked on making the pub their own and to make it a warm home from home environment that would draw people back, time and again.

Koren and Gareth's’ vision was to keep the pub a good drinking pub, with an excellent restaurant – serving top quality, free-range food, locally produced when possible. To offer top notch service with attention to detail, waitress service where nothing is too much trouble.

Being a country pub it is unique in the area as it stays open for food all day. “With Gareth being the head chef and myself running front of house we feel we are achieving what we set out to do” says Koren, “Our staff are friendly and helpful, and customer service is of the utmost importance to us”.

Love this pub! Always a great welcome and our hound is always made a fuss of, with pots of dog biscuits being delivered to the table. Lovely just for a drink, or to eat. Food is excellent and service is spot-on. Family-friendly, but also good for couples with candles on every table and a very relaxed atmosphere. Enjoyed a lovely long lunch today with an old friend and nothing was too much trouble.

Phoned for a table for 2 & was advised that an early table might be advisable as there were a lot of large tables for Xmas dinners after 7pm. Very welcoming on our arrival by hostess and seated quickly and drinks orders taken while we browsed the menu. We had 3 courses each and all were served quickly, piping hot and very tasty. Great atmosphere and decor, staff very polite & attentive.

Lunch with friends. Lovely pub and friendly staff. Stand out was Ruby. Food good but served a little bit cold hence the 4 stars on food. Good selection of beers etc. Heating could be better. Really cold on arrival.
