upstairs at the swans



Are you a chef who wants to try something new and exciting? Why not hire out our kitchen and function room for the evening to host your own Pop-up Kitchen to make some money, or just a private invite-only Supper Club with friends and family? Please contact us via with your ideas if this sounds like something you would like to try. 

 Additionally, if you hire the function room for a party and want to have food, you're always welcome to bring a selection of buffet food with you, but for a small fee, you can hire the kitchen if you want to cook for your guests (or if one of them wants to cook for you!). Also, if you would like to pre-order your alcohol before the occasion, just let us know when you make your booking and we can add your list to the orders and you can have your booze at a slightly cheaper price. E-mail us at or phone us on 01373452009.



To reserve the use of the upstairs please fill in the form opposite and we will get back to you to confirm your booking.

The Three Swans bookings policy:

We do not charge for hiring our beautiful upstairs room, but we do ask that some rules are followed so that we are able to continue to do this for everyone.


  • Any chairs and tables you wish to move will be carefully moved, and returned to their original places at the end of the evening, to the best of your ability.

  • Any rubbish/left-over food will be put in the bins provided, and removed, by the establishment.

  • Any decorations will be taken down and taken away with you, or the establishment will discard of them.

  • Any children under the age of 18 attending the function must not approach the bar at any time, must be upstairs only by 7pm, accompanied to the downstairs facilities by an adult after 7pm, and must have left the establishment by 9pm.

  • Any well-behaved dogs are welcome but must be kept on a lead, and on Fridays and Saturdays they must be taken home by 8pm.

  • Any damages/breakages must be reported to a member of staff and may incur a charge.

  • Any music being played (recorded or live) must be kept at a reasonable volume and finish by 11:30pm (10pm Sundays). We advise customers to bring their own ipod/phone and speakers.

  • Everyone attending the function must have vacated the establishment by midnight (11pm on Sunday).


If you would like to hire out the kitchen, it will cost £50 for full-use, and £20 for part-use, to be paid either in advance or on the date of your event. If you wish to discuss this further, please do not hesitate to ask.

If you have any other queries concerning your booking or the venue in general, please feel free to email us at or phone us on 01373 452009.
