The Swan Gressenhall

Pubs are the beating hearts of our communities and rural heritage. They play a key role in keeping our villages and towns vibrant. The White Swan ceased trading over two years ago and then the world went through a tumultuous pandemic. Despite all the hardship, barriers and roadblocks, I am pleased to say that The White Swan in Gressenhall is back open for business. Hard work and determination has always been at the forefront of this community pub.

That is why I was delighted to visit The Swan this past Friday. I was honoured to see first-hand how the community had made this into a premier destination for an evening drink and a nice meal out. I was also delighted to see that this pub has no bounds with the new stone baked oven, which will make for a nice little touch this winter.

So much hard work has been done by all the volunteers, and it makes me very proud to have been involved in such a great project. Well done to all  the team #SaveTheSwan, this truly is a country pub with a community spirit.
