Functions and Events at The Swan

Our upstairs function room is available to hire for almost any private or business event, day and night, seven days a week.

The Swan Thornbury - function room

It is licensed for up to 100 people with its own dance floor and is ideal for weddings, christenings, birthdays, anniversaries, and sadly wakes, as well as meetings and training sessions.

The room is extremely versatile and can be laid out for parties, or formally in boardroom style or theatre style. Seating is available for up to 60 people.

There's free Wi-Fi, a projector and screen, and copying facilities.

The room is self-contained, with its own bar, overlooking the beer garden.

Your event can be wholly or partly organised by us, including discos, decorations and celebration cakes.

For children's parties, we offer a small bouncy castle, and can organise an entertainer or traditional party games. We'll even organise tea and party bags!

Catering

In-house, we can provide all food and drink required for your event: tea and coffee, breakfasts, lunches and evening meals.

Do you need catering in your place of work? We can prepare and deliver buffets to the local area, at a time that suits you.

The Swan Thornbury - buffet

We have prices to suit all budgets, from £5 per head for a basic buffet, and £10 for a fork buffet. Just tell us what you'd like!

For children's parties, choose from a traditional party tea or burger and chips.

Skittle Alley

As well as keeping six skittle teams busy, the skittle alley is available to host events such as fairs and fetes.

Landlady Sandra is considering organising a table top sale at weekends and local charities could benefit from the proceeds. Please contact Sandra to discuss your ideas!

A sense of history...

The Swan Thornbury - swinging sign

The Swan in Thornbury is a beautiful listed building, which was the first original coach house in the town.

It was fully refurbished in September 2011, but still retains many of its original features and is definitely a ‘traditional local’.

Towards the back of the building we have the original flagstones where the horses were tied to the coach house. This area is Grade I listed, as is the front of the building, including the old windows where the coachmen were served. Come and have a look!
