About Our Pub
The Old Swan Uppers is perfectly located just a short walk from the Thames and Cookham train station. With great pub food, a fantastic tapas menu and good value yet exceptionally quality wines, this is the perfect pub for lunchtime walks and relaxing evening meals.
Swan Upping is the annual census of the swan population on stretches of the Thames in the counties of Middlesex, Surrey, Buckinghamshire, Berkshire and Oxfordshire. This historic ceremony dates from the twelfth century, when the Crown claimed ownership of all mute swans.
We have a roaring open fire and low beamed ceilings with a lovely homely feeling throughout. With local ales, a long wine list and ice cold beer the bar upholds a lively, friendly feeling. The menu choices are extensive and with the only tapas menu in Cookham, you will have a truly unique meal with us!
Michelin trained Head chef Ben Haywood has put together a great selection of modern tapas and traditional pub dishes with something to please everyone. Sunday roasts are always a must in this stunning Cookham pub with a choice of roast rib of beef or Crispy locally farmed pork belly. Chef Haywood sources all his suppliers and products from the local area, to the best cheeses from Berkshire.
The swan uppers team look forward to welcoming you to come and try our beautiful countryside pub.
