The Swan at Tetsworth
Muddy says: Excellent Normandy cuisine and service in an eclectically stylish dining room. Romantic for couples, a treat with friends, wasted on small children!
One of my favourite restaurants in the whole of Bucks & Oxon, The Swan at Tetsworth, attached to (but run separately from) the antiques centre of the same name, offers Normandy cuisine in stunning surroundings – think high ceilings, chandliers and pretty mirrors.
The food is excellent – I have no qualms in recommending it at all – but to me the main ingredient to The Swan’s success is owner/maitre d’ Antoin – proudly French, exuberantly passionate about food and charming and charismatic without slipping into slimy or fawning. Worth noting that there’s a small courtyard outside but this is really a restaurant for indoor dining and though kids would be welcome, the menu might be wasted on the young!
