Rowberrow is an ex-mining village, and The Swan has been created from 3 knocked-through miners cottages, overlooking the heather strewn beauty of Beacon Batch. The pub has been around since the late 1700's, and started life as a cider house – 2 Thatchers cider brands are still on sale!, but the real draw of The Swan is the food.
We are working increasingly closely with a fantastic advocate for local business, the people doing a fine job encouraging and promoting our county, namely Visit Somerset who, with the least government assistance of any 'Visit' site, are doing great things to help put God's Country front and centre where it should be, including promoting great local companies and events! Butcombe Brewery, Thatcher's Cider, Yeo Valley, Glastonbury ... Let's be proud to buy local and support Somerset. www.visitsomerset.co.uk
