The Swan Celebrates Outstanding Cheshire Produce at Annual Food & Drink Festival



Throughout the weekend of 15th-17th July, visitors and locals to The Swan in Tarporley are being welcomed an open-air food and drink festival, celebrating some of the best produce from across Cheshire and the British Isles.

Held annually, The Swan’s Food & Drink Festival boasts an impressive range of beers, ales and ciders from national brands, artisan breweries and pub favourites, with up to 15 different varieties to choose from, as well as a fantastic range of wines and cocktails.

As well as the traditional summer beer festival, The Swan will be hosting food stalls from a number of the pub’s suppliers on Saturday 16th. As guests sip on the wide variety of drinks on offer, they will be invited to sample everything from cheeses and patê to oysters and ice cream. Carefully selected by the pub’s team of hospitality experts, the produce on offer showcases some of the best available from Cheshire suppliers as well as across the UK.

There will also be the ever-popular barbecue menu, prepared by The Swan’s talented team of chefs, and live music from local band, A Box Full of Spark, to entertain guests well into the evening. Kids will also be kept busy with a bouncy castle, face painting and an ice cream stall throughout the day.

General Manager, Tyrone Fitzgerald, said:

“This is the fourth year that The Swan has held its annual food and drink festival, and each year it grows bigger and more popular. This year, we are very pleased to be extending the traditional beer festival to include a fantastic range of food for guests to sample on the Saturday, as they enjoy live music and the kids are kept entertained with family-friendly fun.

“I think events like these are something that the community needs and our aim is to provide a great weekend of events to our customers, with entertainment throughout, family-friendly activities, and quality local and British produce.”

“This will be my first beer festival at The Swan and I am very much looking forward to experiencing the fantastic atmosphere that keeps people coming back year on year.”
