We always have event nights lined up, they give Tom a break from the norm, a chance to use other ingredients that he loves to cook with.
The video at the bottom will show you what our tasting evenings are all about.
4th October – Game night
Game is wild, natural, free range and at this time of year it’s in abundance.
Part of Toms cooking ethos is to use seasonal produce so 'Game Night’ gives Tom the opportunity to showcase a different game animal for each of the 5 courses he will produce (apart from desert that would just be weird).
If game’s your thing or you’re curious to try game then this night is unmissable.
Price £55 / head plus an optional wine flight £25 / head
18th October – 5 course Autumn Tasting
The nights are drawing in, the leaves are falling, Autumn is a great season, just the smell in the air is enough to wet your appetite.
The produce available to Tom is wholesome and earthy and rich.
The White Swan will have the log fires roaring, it will be toastie warm and cosy.
You can expect the dishes Tom produces to be wholesome, earthy and rich as well as tasty, sumptuous and comforting.
Price £45 / head plus an optional wine flight £25 / head

29th November – A night with Guy Cliffe – He’s bringing his best!
We always start the Christmas period off with Guy doing a night. Not only is he a well known wine buff based in the North West of England, he’s also a very nice chap and is great at explaining how and why it tastes like it does.
This year, Guy has moved to a new agency which is great as it opens up a whole new portfolio of wines.
We’ve given him the a copy of the menu and literally told him to bring his best selection so we’re excited and can’t wait to sample great food, great wine and also experience the 4th dimension when the two come together so perfectly it blows your mind.
Price £85 / head including wine with each course
£55 / head for the driver in your party
