The Racehorse

In 1964 Harry Strangward bought the old Black Swan as a closed pub. He then renovated it and re-opened it, based around his hobby of horse racing. He had had several winning horses, his favourite of which was ‘Little Rapide’, whose head collar hangs in our restaurant to this day.

Over the years, his 19 seat pub/restaurant has expanded and developed into a 100 seat restaurant / pub / coffee house with bed and breakfast.

Gordon has been the proud and hardworking owner since 1994.
