Welcome to The Elm Tree
Lorraine and her team welcome you to our traditional free house in Swanwick.
The Elm Tree Inn Swanwick offers a warm welcome and great pub food in traditional surroundings.
Sunday Lunches, the incredible Tuesdays Steak Nights, Birthdays, Family and Celebration Parties, Funerals, and Company events can all be accommodated in our restaurant. A special buffet choice is available at set prices.
Only stopping for a drink? Then stop by our Lounge Bar or the Public Bar or even the large, well protected Garden with its attractive flower borders and seating area provide a comfortable setting for drier and warmer days. Pets are welcome in the Public Bar only.
With fewer Free Houses available, The Elm Tree still retains those welcome words. As such, a variety of superb beers, both Cask and Keg are available. On offer are Prize-winning beers such as ‘Flowerpots’ ‘Goodens Gold’ and the ever popular ‘Doom Bar’ together with the latest finds such as ‘Goose IPA’ and the new “Maltsmiths” and lagers such as Fosters, and Peroni. Our cask ales are sourced from local breweries, including The Flower Pots in Cheriton. The Elm Tree has also recently been recommended for inclusion into the “Good Beer Guide”.
Cider drinkers are not forgotten, either, with the lesser-known but very tasty offering of Thatchers Gold and Strongbow Cloudy Apple, as well as a selection of Old Mout bottled fruit ciders.
During the year The Elm Tree also celebrates some national events including Valentines Day, Mothering Sunday and Bank Holiday Weekends. We also provide ‘Beer-Fests’ during the year. For all the upcoming events keep an eye on the Special Events Page to ensure you don’t miss out.

Monday lunchtime 12noon to 2pm.

The Elm Tree serves a wide variety of ales, bitters and lagers and being free of ties, prides itself by being able to support local breweries. Lorraine’s experience in the pub trade means she is very knowledgeable and suggestions for good ales to try would be greatly received. The Cellar at the Elm Tree is, of course, very well maintained, with all beers stored at the correct temperature, CAMRA (the Campaign for Real Ale) gave its Goddens Gold 10/10.

What our customer say
Delicious Sunday Lunch
On a very wet and windy Sunday we popped in hoping they could squeeze us in and even though they were really busy we got a table! The service was fantastic from start to finish! The food was hot and was served really quickly. We had 2 roast dinners and a mac and cheese followed by apple pie to share and all were delicious! Would definitely recommend this cute little pub!
Steak Night is Great
We visited on a Tuesday for my birthday not realizing it was Steak night. We chose the steaks and had an excellent meal for two including a bottle of Merlot for only £19.95. A really great evening.
