The Bear and Swan

South Parade, CHEW MAGNA, BS40 8SL

On the main street in the bustling village of Chew Magna, a short hop from Bristol Airport, this early 18th-century pub boasts a warm and friendly atmosphere. Inside, the oak-beamed rooms with scrubbed wooden floors and diverse collection of reclaimed tables, chairs and assorted artefacts all contribute to its charm. Fuller's London Pride and Butcombe Bitter take pride of place at the bar alongside a real Somerset cider and a list of well selected wines. The restaurant has a good choice of fish, game, seafood, meats and vegetarian dishes. You might choose to start with pan-fried scallops, butternut squash, chorizo and pea shoots before moving on to roast duck breast with garlic roasted celeriac, beetroot, carrots, spinach and plum chutney, or wild mushroom risotto. Home-made desserts like passionfruit cheesecake with raspberry sorbet will appeal to a sweet tooth. Look out for the spring into summer beer and cider festivals.
