Some History for you :)
The earliest record of the building is from the ledger book c1300 as a property owned by one John King. By 1584 the property was known as "Kings" and included a brewhouse and yards. By 1635 it became known as the Swan.
Although the property was extended in the 19th century with the addition of the East & West wings, some of the original beams are still to be seen.
Ye Olde Swan is a good example of the increase in property values. It was mortgaged for £400 in 1781, sold for £750 in 1830 and for £1,850 in 1895. (in 1789 it was let for £10 per year).
