The Swan, Bampton, Devon

This award winning pub right next to the church is the oldest in Bampton and it's not surprising it has so many accolades as the food is excellent. There's a huge focus on ingredients that are both local and seasonal and they pride themselves on their attentive service. Go for a drink and some friendly chit-chat, or book a table for dinner if you're staying nearby; choose from mouth watering mains like 28 day dry aged fillet steak, Oakford Farm pork belly, Whole baked bream, and Steak, ale, kidney & suet pudding. If there's a big group of you, you can book a private room upstairs that seats 20.
