The Garden Room Restaurant

Herefordshire, the Brecon Beacons and the Welsh Marches are all known for their wonderful produce. The Head Chef has created new modern, local menus, including seasonal Welsh dishes using produce from local suppliers. The Menus offer classic dishes, that are well executed, whilst our Garden Room Restaurant offers a truly luxurious experience in classical surroundings. 

The kitchen team take pride in everything that they produce, and hope that our diners have a memorable experience.  Guests are free to choose between dining in The Garden Room, The 1812 Bar or The Market Bar.  

The hotel aim to use as many local suppliers as possible, and indeed most of them are based just a short distance from The Swan. If you would like to take a taste of Hay home with you, they would be only too delighted to show you around their shops, farms and outlets.

Location & Local Attractions

"Hay-on-Wye is famous for one thing – books. It's a bibliophile's paradise. There are millions of them, and they are everywhere. The castle's a book shop, the cinema's a book shop, the fire station's a book shop - even the alleyways are book shops. And, if you're lucky enough to visit in May you'll catch the annual Hay Festival of Literature."

Hay-on-Wye is a quaint little town nestled right on the border of Wales and England, making it the perfect gateway and base to explore the rest of Wales. The town boasts a magnificent 12th century castle, quirky boutiques and a plethora of unique book shops to discover and explore during your time here. 

More adventurous visitors can attempt to walk up Hay Bluff and the Twmpa, a full day's hike to complete both that will result in unparalleled views of the surrounding landscapes of both Wales and England. Hopefully you will be able to organise your visit during one of the many festivals that take place here, as the town specialises in celebrations of literature, arts and film. If you're planning a stay with us anytime soon, we've put together a few interesting facts about the town so you can brush up on your local knowledge before the holiday!

The Swan also work in partnership with The Activity People  to provide a range of fun and exciting things to do when you stay with the Swan.  If you want to try archery, canoeing, horse riding, fishing and clay pigeon shooting do let us know as these will need to be booked in advance.
