Charity of the Month

In October 2015 our charity of the month is Thornbury and District Museum. Landlady Sandra says "I would like to thank everyone who has helped us raise £391 for the Thornbury Broncos in September. This month we are aiming for £300 - I don't know if we will do it, but we can only try - so everyone for just a £ and a few hours of your time you can help a worth while organisation in Thornbury...".

The Swan Pub in Thornbury raised over £325 for Bandanas for Brain Tumour Support. The photo shows from left to right: Jo Ebbs, Jonathan Organ, Jackie Longman, Gary Lee (as Mr Hippo), Patrycja Kupniewska, Jemma Iles and Suzie Moon.

Please join us on any Wednesday at 8.45pm to enjoy a fun quiz with your friends whilst helping to raise funds.

It's just a pound to enter and there are teams of a maximum of five.

However if you only have one or two of you then don't worry, as there are always our resident quiz people happy to have additional people in their team.

We also hold many other events such as raffles, and all proceeds go to the charity of the month.

Functions and Events at The Swan

Book party in 2015 and get free room hire, room decoration including balloons, and a competitive price on all buffets.

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!

Skittle Alley

The Swan Thornbury

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


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.

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.

Community Toilets

With few public toilet facilities in Thornbury, particularly in the evenings, The Swan has joined a Town Council partnership to provide clean, safe and accessible toilets in convenient locations in the town centre.

It means anyone can use The Swan's toilet facilities during normal opening hours, with no obligation to buy food or drink.
