Hosting your friends in style

How many of us have experienced it recently – missing a much anticipated get together with friends; battling with the indecision of whether to cancel or postpone an event and worrying about the possible implications of gathering with friends and family.  It’s kind of taken the fun out of things and whilst some of us have cracked on with virtual parties with a determind stiff upper lip, there really is no replacement for seeing people in real life.

So, how do you mark those special moments in life, in these new times of social distancing?   As a well-known and popular venue for parties and events, we’ve taken a long hard look at how we can create the same memorable events whilst hosting your friends and family in style and safety.


space to roam

The Aviary event space at The Swan was designed to accommodate wedding receptions and celebrations of up to 200 guests, which gives you an indication of the room proportions and the sense of space now that maximum capacities for social events have been reduced.  Innovative partitioning enables The Aviary to be configured into different sized rooms for private dining and parties, all with inspiring views of the river.


take the party outside

We’re fresh air enthusiasts and will do everything we can to be outdoors; step onto the terrace and cross the bridge onto our vast riverside lawns, created to provide a memorable backdrop for entertaining.  Why not make an entrance and arrive at your party by boat?


Coppa Club

Oh, the joy of having someone else do the cooking & pour the wine!  All you need to do is decide what type of menu you prefer and we’ll do the rest.  If you’re a regular at Coppa Club, you’ll be familiar with the European menu of fresh salads, grilled mains and hand stretched sourdough pizzas.  For private parties, this menu is extended to include all manner of culinary delights, or we can also roll out the most impressive BBQ and get grilling.


let us entertain you

Many may be breathing a huge sigh of relief that dancing is off limits for now, but for those who like live music to get the party started, we have trusted partners who can provide a little ambiance without breaking into a nightclub vibe.  Steph Willis has played at several Coppa Club launches and many weddings and knows just how to create the right mood.



How do you keep that party feeling going?  All the planning and anticipation and often some of the best parties pass in a bit of a blur.  We love the morning-after-the-night-before chats over a lazy brunch with friends and at The Swan you have the added advantage of a bracing riverside walk or yoga class to blow the cobwebs away.


talk to us

Our Events Team have bags of experience in creating memorable celebrations, from private dinners to birthday parties, engagements to anniversaries.  We have adapted our own unique style of riverside entertaining to welcome you back to doing what you love with the people that mean the most to you.  We are keeping a close eye on government guidelines around people gathering together and offering flexible terms for added reassurance, should plans have to change.

Latest update from the Swan

Open for business

The Swan Streatley is very much open for business and we have been delighted by the number of people choosing to spend their staycations by the river with us so far this year.

Thank you to our guests & visitors, our teams & suppliers for getting behind the new health & safety procedures with a smile and continuing to make the hotel a fun, relaxed and great place to be.

Keeping you safe

As we enter a new phase of Government legislation, we want to reassure you of our continued commitment to keeping you safe during your visit and also outline what the latest changes mean for you when you visit us. For full and up to date information, please visit gov.uk/coronavirus

10pm curfew in the restaurant

Coppa Club bar & restaurant will be closed from the 10pm Curfew, at which point non-residents will need to make their way home, and hotel guests retire to their room. Hotel guests can order wine, beer and bar snacks to collect and enjoy in their room. Whether you are planning brunch, lunch or dinner, we suggest going online to book your table at Coppa.

Cafe open to all

The hotel café is open to everyone, 7 days a week from 8am-6pm. As well as tea, coffee & alcoholic drinks, you can also order Coppa Club takeaway to eat in the bar or garden during these hours.

Gym open as usual

The Gym remains open as usual 6:00am to 10:00pm every day. Outside classes are exempt from the rule of six as we can maintain social distancing and indoor workouts benefit from filtered air conditioning, spacious layout, booked time slots and increased cleaning.

Wear a face covering in public areas & register your details

When you visit us, please wear your face covering in all public areas and also be aware that everyone is required to register their details with the new NHS Test & Trace app. This is easily done using the QR codes available throughout the hotel and Coppa Club.

Weddings for up to 15, meetings for up to 30

Although our partying may have been curtailed for a while, we are still hosting small weddings for up to 15, meetings for up to 30 and private dining for up to six. Our large riverside event space, with doors out on to the terrace and filtered air-conditioning lends itself perfectly to socially distanced, private events (and dare we say it – Christmas gatherings!) and you are in safe hands with our team. So, if you are looking for a change of scene and somewhere to catch up with friends or colleagues, speak to us about what’s possible.

Autumn & Winter breaks are always a winner in the countryside with the changing colours and opportunities to get into the great outdoors and we are pleased to be able to offer you a warm, comfortable place to relax and unwind.
