The Bear and Swan pub in Chew Magna, near Bristol

Opening Times:

The Bear and Swan is now open from breakfast  to dinner time, every day of the week (9.00am - 12 midnight)

The Bear and Swan

A traditional 18th century pub, The Bear and Swan offers a country retreat just minutes from Bristol on the way to Bristol Airport. Our restaurant is well known to walkers and escapees from the city and features an ever changing specials board and a la carte menus. There's a great range of ciders, lagers and beers and a carefully chosen wine list. We recently acquired this pub from Fullers and our experienced manager, Morley has made the move from The Old House at Home to bring the OHH touch to an already thriving pub. We officially  took over the management of the Bear and Swan on May 20th 2013.

Restaurant Review from Mark Taylor at the Crumbs Magazine

Pan-fried duck breast with roast beetroot, baby carrots, garlic, fresh broad beans and peas.The Bear and Swan recently had a great write up in the popular Bath and Bristol Crumbs Magazine. Mark Taylor, restaurant critic, gave us a glowing review saying,

"With such a multiple choice menu, whittling it down wasn’t easy but the Britain’s Got Talent-style yeses eventually went to pan-fried scallops with lemon risotto, rocket and Parmesan (£8.50), followed by pan-fried duck breast with roast beetroot, baby carrots, garlic, fresh broad beans and peas (£15.50). They were both faultless."
