The Swan in Clewer Opened its doors for business on Saturday 20th July 2019.
The Swan in Clewer which has been closed for three years opened its doors for its first drink on Saturday 20th July.
The local community came together to purchase and renovate this historical 18th century pub for the benefit of the community. The pub was made an asset of community value and purchased by local residents.
After 501 days since its purchase the pub opened in a limited form thanks to the hard work of local volunteers working together with their financial partners.
Work is not yet complete but the temporary bar is open daily, serving local beer and snacks in what will be a fantastic local community venue.
Guests will see the pub progress to its finished state over the course of the next month.
The remaining buildings on the site will be developed over the coming months with mixed community and business use that will support the management committee’s stated objectives.
The objective are to be Community focused and sustainable. The pub will not provide parking as the are encouraging cycling to the pub.
The opening was well supported by the community and residents alike and will be a central part of the Clewer Village Community for years to come.
The pub was opened by the Windsor Town Crier Chris Brown and Windsor and Eton Brewery and the beer was delivered by their Shire Horses and Dray.
