Our policy is not to book out all of our tables in advance.
We know that sometimes drinks are best drunk on a whim.
We have a beautiful beer garden (some sections of which are heated and covered) none of which can be pre-booked.
When we're busy we struggle to answer the phone. If you contact us through email or facebook we will get back to you ASAP. 
We are still taking normal bookings during the festive period but if you would like to book for Christmas please email us at info@theswaninnlewes.co.uk so we can confirm your booking and organise a preorder with you! Deposits will be required for all Christmas bookings and a cover charge of 10% will be charged for tables of over 8 guests.
