Swan Hotel

Radcot, Bampton, OX18 2SX

Ye Olde Swan is situated in a stunning location aside the River Thames at Radcot Bridge, originally an old packhorse bridge on the main wool export route from Northampton to Southampton.

The bridge, which claims to be the oldest crossing of the Thames was built around 1200. Ye Olde Swan has been a stopping off point for weary shepherds and travellers for hundreds of years to enjoy fine ales and good food. Nothing has changed, though the sheep have long since disappeared.

In the summer our large river frontage garden is an ideal place to watch the river cruisers and canal boats drift past. We have sixty moorings so an ideal place to park the boat and enjoy our hospitality. We can also offer camping and if that doesn’t quite do it for you, we will shortly be offering Glamping packages.
So whether your floating down the Thames, walking the Thames, or crossing the Thames and very occasionally we have people swimming the Thames, do pop in and enjoy our pub and its surroundings.
