The Swan is steeped with character and old fashioned charm and was the first original coach house in Thornbury. In fact, there is only 1 other building that was built prior to The Swan, which is Thornbury Castle, the back wall dates back to 1659 and most of the building are grade listed 1 and 2.
We have raised a whopping total of £87,027.73 for various local charities through our fundraising events up to mid-April 2017 and it’s our goal to continue helping the community of Thornbury and to reach a target of £100,000 by the end of 2017.
The Swan has been awarded the Regional Community Pub of the year for Bristol / surrounding area and South West Wales - we have won £5,000 to put towards a Community Based charity. During 2014, The Swan won the Gold Award in the Thornbury In Bloom for the array of colour and its arrangements of flowers. This was recently acknowledged again and in 2016 we won in Thornbury bloom, the Chairman’s 25th anniversary award for the community work we have done and still doing as well as the Gold Award for our Gardens.
The Swan also won a silver award in March 2015 for its Fairtrade hot drinks and being an active supporter of Fairtrade. Most recently, we have added to these awards by winning the 2017 Fairtrade Coffee Silver Award and been accredited the Guinness of quality accreditation.
