The White Swan Wighill is changing! Recently taken over by Wesley and Emma Chamberlain, the plan for this beautiful pub is to bring it back to its former glory as a gastropub (don’t worry this just means it will be a destination for serious eaters). Not forgetting those who enjoy a decent pint of course. The original taproom has been restored. With a roaring fire, a comfortable sofa and real ales. We still welcome cyclists and walkers with a brew and a slice of home baked cake, so please drop in and get warmed up anytime as our opening hours have been extended too!
“Our vision for the pub is simple. Good, seasonal food, cooked to a high standard and enjoyed in relaxed surroundings. We want to bring back the traditional English country pub that’s the hub of the village”.
With this in mind a bartering system has been put in place. Produce for Beer!
If you are an allotment owner, fisherman, shooter or forager, bring in your surplus produce and swap it for a free pint or two!
“We are passionate about food, efficient service and community spirit and look forward to meeting you all”.
A bit about the chef
Wesley has been cooking for 17 years, beginning his training at the academy of culinary arts in Bournemouth. He has worked in high profile restaurants such as Ransoms Dock in London and Upstairs at the Grill in Chester. He has been head chef for seven years and more recently made it to the final three candidates for a position at River Cottage. He has a great passion for the job and is looking forward to becoming the landlord of his own pub, which has been his ambition for many years.
