Who We Are

Our 8 bedroomed 18th century coaching Inn and restaurant is open every day of the year and combines original flair with exposed steel beams, open fire, cosy nooks and crannies and pretty garden.

We offer everything from great local ales, inspiring à la carte menu, hearty Sunday lunch  to individually planned weddings and events for up to 70 people.

We are conveniently situated in the rural and peaceful market town of Crewkerne, just a few minutes south off the A303 in Somerset.

We are very much a locals’ pub, welcoming familiar faces into our watering hole to sit, chat, eat and drink in these beautiful surroundings. Equally we love to see new faces who might be visiting this beautiful county – looking for their own ‘escape to the country’.

The area is superb for walks across the fields or along the World Heritage Site of the Jurassic Coast. The town hosts many antique shops and auction houses, too. So as a lunch stopover, or overnight stay en-route to Devon and Cornwall, or a destination in itself, The Crooked Swan is the perfect spot.

More than Fine Dining

Pub food

The meals you love, but with the time and attention that turns this menu up to eleven. Browse the menu to whet your palate.

Locally sourced

We all know that fresh is best, but that’s just one reason why we buy locally. We know our suppliers by name, have visited their farms, and their teams come here to eat and drink. It’s a community thing.

Seasonal Menus

We aim to source responsibly. Part of that means eating with the seasons. Fresh fruit and veg in summer, wild mushrooms in autumn, and warm soups in winter.


We cater for functions in the restaurant, and in our huge function room (opens in 2020). Drop us a line with your requirements.

Our History

Brothers Ollie and Jules Campbell, and Jules’s wife Ariane bought the Swan Hotel in July 2017. 

At the time it was not in a happy way, and their mission over the last 2 years has been to restore the rather ugly duckling to the beautiful Swan it always wanted to be.

Not quite back to normal..

We’re going to try things out for a few weeks so we can learn quickly how best to serve as many as possible as safely as possible.  

  • No more than 6 people per table.
  • We may introduce time limits, especially when it’s busy, to reduce exposure and to ensure everyone gets a turn.
