About our venue

The Swan is the oldest building in the rural village of Heddon on the Wall. Set in a great location we have views overlooking the Tyne Valley to the Pennines about 30 miles away - on a clear day. The stone building dates back to 1780 and we celebrated its hundredth year as a pub in December 2005. Furbished to a high standard, we combine modern and traditional, effortlessly. Light and airy with comfortable modern furniture, there is a sumptuous feel. Our feature wine wall is situated behind the carvery and is available daily along with an extensive table menu. All our food is freshly prepared and meat used is UK reared. To accompany your meal our wine menu has an excellent selection from around the world. Fairtrade freshly brewed coffee and Ringtons tea is always served. A working blacksmiths was previously positioned where the restaurant stands now. One of the three fireplaces was the forge and there is a large metal wheel dug into the ground outside the restaurant which was the actual mould for forging the cart wheels. The horses used to come in to be shod where the middle window is and the beams are still there. Being two minutes walk from Hadrian's Wall we are a very popular spot for ramblers who drop in for refreshments. We are accessible to all being only 20 minutes drive from Newcastle City Centre with the Metro Centre and Corbridge within easy reach. Make sure you call in soon and enjoy what this friendly, welcoming pub has to offer.
