The White Swan is for those who treasure serene streets, birdsong mornings, impeccable service, and the grace of New World Tradition. Today the tavern operates as a bed and breakfast, offering accommodations and afternoon tea, as well as amenities for small conferences, weddings, and receptions. Just as it was described in the 18th century, the White Swan remains “a comfortable… Public House… with every attention given to render comfort and pleasure to such as favor it with their patronage.”
