José Pizarro The Swan Inn, Claygate

A typical English pub in Claygate with a menu that serves delicious Spanish classics from much-loved Spanish chef José Pizarro. And there are also boutique bedrooms, for those who fancy staying the night!

Weekend Escapes

José Pizarro’s first gastropub, The Swan Inn is a modern pub with boutique rooms, found opposite a pretty green between Esher and Claygate.

It’s a stylish gastropub and restaurant with bright interiors – think natural woods, leather upholstery and neutral colours on the walls with some lovely Spanish touches – and this is a pub for locals just as much as it’s a restaurant with rooms.

Food is in the classic José style – delicious Spanish classics using the best Spanish ingredients alongside locally sourced produce. There’s a strong emphasis on cooking seasonally.

There’s a lovely garden terrace, and on weekends during the summer the barbecues are fired up for a true taste fo grilled tapas classics alfresco. In the winter, you can cosy up next to the log fireplace or the garden firepit.

There’s also a private dining room that can accommodate up to 20 guests for parties, special occasions or meetings with sharing set menus from £25 per person (for groups of 10 or more) which are served in the middle of the table.

Thirsty? There is a wide selection of British real ales, draught beers, big gin and tonics with a wonderful collection of Spanish and European wines.

And for those can’t tear themselves away – you can extend their stay can and book a night in The Swan Inn rooms. The cosy boutique, en-suite rooms are found in the converted barn next door to the pub. With beautifully fitted rooms and breakfast included.
