The Swan at Salford has opened its doors again and given a warm welcome back to guests who have been celebrating being able to get back to the pub.
The pub has re-opened its garden for eating and drinking outside, offering a new menu for spring with a choice of seasonal dishes for lunch and dinner and everything in between. There are also new arrivals on the drinks list including cocktails, gins and soft drinks, with plenty of options to toast being back at the pub.
The entire team at The Swan has thrown themselves into getting the pub ship-shape for opening after the long months of lockdown and is thrilled to be able to have groups of up to six people from any number of households, or groups of two households, outside.
The Swan’s General Manager Lianne Sargent is on hand to welcome guests back to the pub and ensure everyone is safe when they visit. She said:
“We have been working really hard to be ready for the big day when we could finally open our doors again and we are so happy to see that day! We all missed being able to do what we love the most – looking after our guests and serving them plenty of the good stuff.
“The changes we have made at the pub mean we can do that and do it really well, whatever the weather. We’ve created the ideal setting for people to celebrate getting back together again, whether it’s meeting their mates for a drink or having coffee or cocktails, coming for Sunday lunch at the pub or making a Saturday night out special. Come and see us soon.”
In front of the pub is a spacious stretch tent with plenty of spots for sitting and enjoying morning coffee or a sundowner, with stylish wooden tables and rattan chairs piled with comfy cushions and fleecy throws.
At night it glows under warm white festoon lights with lanterns and wood-burning chimineas making an ideal setting for a candle-lit dinner.
As well as being able to order food and drink from one of the team, you can also get your glass topped up and have something tasty to eat by ordering on your mobile. Look out for the cards in the pub which explain it all.
The Swan is now taking bookings outdoors for groups of up to six, or up to two households and is open Monday to Sunday from 12pm to 11pm. The pub serves food Monday to Saturday from 12pm to 9pm and on Sunday from 12pm to 8pm.
The Swan is at 2 Wavendon Road, Salford, Milton Keynes, MK17 8BD. Tel: 01908 281008.
