The Swan, Salford
The Swan Salford is an attractive Edwardian pub in a lovely village setting, 10 minutes from central Milton Keynes and just 1 mile from junction 13 of the M1. It’s perfect for a drink after work and as somewhere to meet, eat and drink with friends. The Swan combines top quality pub food with modern brasserie dishes. We serve food all day. Drink quality draught beers, ale on hand pump plus a carefully chosen wine list with quality variety value. Meetings & private dining available.
The Peach Family
Our aim is to make our pubs great places, full of character, great individual places to eat, drink & sleep; a place for local people, businesses, families and tourists to meet and call their own. Every pub is unique, individually designed to suit their town or village, and respecting each pub’s history.
Peach is not a chain, it’s a group of like-minded enthusiasts. If you like one of our places, you’re almost bound to like the others. Click here to find them!
We will never be the biggest pub company; we’re out for perfection on a small scale, fuelled by passion for good food and drink and a keen interest in protecting the environment.
Our Buckinghamshire gastropub is open every day from 10am with hot food available all day. We take huge pride in serving the best ingredients we can find, from ethical producers, freshly prepared by our chefs. Whether you pop in for a pint, a business lunch or a special dinner, we promise you a friendly welcome. All day long.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
Frazer, and the Team
Frazer felt that despite graduating Law at Oxford, hospitality was where his heart was, so he proceeded to work in all the top places in the city, and was well known and respected as one of the very best operators in town. Having learnt his craft, it wasn’t long before he took the leap and opened his own quality food pub, which he took from nothing to a hugely successful business which thrived for eight years, retaining a full head of hair throughout. It was here that his food knowledge excelled further, and he and the Head Chef blamed their success on their English/French creations, not forgetting, of course, Frazer’s infectious enthusiasm and natural charm. On selling up, he flirted with a few different ideas before deciding that he wanted to find somewhere he could bring his passion for the city and love of the country together, and of course, The Swan was the perfect place to do it. We’re extremely glad his love of the great British pub wins over his other passion, diving in the Maldives, and his commitment to The Swan means he’s here for the long haul. You might like a pint, but he’s pretty good with a cocktail shaker too, so whatever your tipple, we hope you’ll come along and say hi to him soon.
Simon Harris, Head Chef
Simon’s inspiration for being a chef was seeing his Dad cook Sunday lunch and the family sitting round the table tucking in. Being able to make people happy through food just seemed right. So he went to Bedford College to get his whites whilst working at The Bedford Swan hotel learning the ropes. Hungry to learn more, Simon cooked at Brasserie Blanc in Milton Keynes, soaking up all he could from Monsieur Blanc’s classically trained brigade. With the move back to The Bedford Swan a year later, Simon’s love affair with two classic Bedfordshire venues began in earnest. He spent the first part rising through the ranks at The Swan, taking the food to Rosette standard in a short time, before getting a new lease of life as sous chef at the fabulous Flitwick Manor Hotel. Simon was at the forefront of a successful team cooking fantastic quality cuisine for every occasion, from bespoke weddings to charity fundraisers and intimate dinners. Back in Bedford a couple of years later, Simon did a stint at The Swan before returning to Flitwick Manor to be their head chef. With all this amazing experience under his belt, our Swan’s going to fly.
