The Swan at Nibley has something on offer most days

The Swan is part of a trio of popular and well supported pubs and restaurants north of Bristol - the other two sites being The Bell Inn at Old Sodbury and Sodbury Steakhouse in Chipping Sodbury.

And they certainly like their deals at The Swan, which is a short hop from Yate. Apart from Mondays, when the pub is closed all day, there seems to be something tempting for customers all week.

On Tuesdays, it’s a steak deal - two 8oz rumps or 10oz gammon for £30 - and on ‘Wine Club Wednesdays’ there’s 33% off wines usually served by the bottle.

Visit on Thursday and it’s a free drink when you order one of the homemade pies and turn up on Friday and you can have two cocktails for £12 or two glasses of Prosecco for £8.

Throw into the mix a fixed price lunch menu (one course for £12.95, two courses £17.95 and three courses £22.95) weekdays and Saturdays until 2pm.

Dishes on that menu include honey-glazed Wiltshire ham, fried egg and chips; beer battered cod, peas and chips or lasagne al forno.

If you're looking for something a little lighter for lunch, there are baguettes and sandwiches (from £7.50) and jacket potatoes (also from £7.50).

There’s also a full a la carte menu including Ruby & White butchery steaks, burgers and specials like ‘The Nibley Chicken’ with mushroom, bacon and tarragon sauce, curly kale, honey-glazed carrots and sautéed new potatoes.

The Sunday roasts (priced from £14.95-£21.95) are so popular you need to book weeks in advance. 

With all this talk of food, it’s almost easy to forget The Swan is still technically a pub rather than a restaurant and although there isn’t much in the way of passing trade for drinkers, there are a couple of stools at the bar and comfortable sofas next to the wood burner for those who simply want a quick drink.

And the beer is well kept, too. My pint of Wadworth 6X was in great condition - crystal clear and fresh from the barrel - but then at £5.20 it should be.

The Swan, Badminton Road, Nibley, BS37 5JF.
