Food at The White Swan

As a small country 'local', we usually offer high quality, home-made dishes, in the evenings Thursdays to Saturdays, and lunchtimes at the weekends.

Pub Classics

Fresh Fish and Chips

Direct Seafoods of Colchester deliver us fresh fish each week, which we deep-fry using home-made beer batter, and serve with chunky triple-cooked chips and mushy peas. Customers often tell us it is the best fish and chips they've ever had.

Premium, Home-pressed Burgers

Our burger mince comes from The Histon Chop Shop and is made from two different cuts of beef to produce a great balance of taste and texture. We press our burgers ourselves, and serve them with mayo, lettuce, beef tomoato, red onion, Jamón serrano ham and the obligatory slice of dill pickle, in a toasted, seeded, organic bap.

‘Genius’ Ciabatta Pizzas

Sliced through the middle, large ciabattas produce a light yet crunchy pizza base, perfect with mozzarella, beef tomato and mature cheddar. The highly acclaimed 'landlord special' seems to be the most popular, particularly with those who like a little heat.

Home-made scones

Sometimes nothing beats a pot of English Breakfast tea with warm, home-made scones, strawberry jam and real Cornish clotted cream. Although the pronunciation of 'scone' and the order in which jam and cream are applied can cause some controversy.
