Dance Venues

This year we have five venues for our dancing and all of them will be visited by our giant Jack In The Green and his entourage during the day.

The Swan Hotel: (D4 on map) As well as their indoor bars they will have an outdoor bar in their car park overlooking the dancing and a pagan arts and crafts fair – a must see. The Swan has the character and charm of an old country inn with a popular bar and rather uniquely, a Thai Restaurant, with authentic Thai food all freshly prepared by their Thai Chefs, which is served alongside a more traditional Pub Classics menu. Menu here.

The Weaving Shed: (D2 on map) They have a fabulous position overlooking the town bridge with indoor and outdoor seating. The owners, Richard and Natasha Synan, have established themselves as one of the town’s most popular coffee and eating places. Brunch menu here.

Lamb Yard: (D3 on map) A labyrinth of shops based in and around converted mill buildings in the heart of the town. Dancing will be by the Secret Garden Coffee Shop (the best cakes in town?) and outside Pablo’s Bistro where they serve expertly prepared and delicious Spanish meat, fish, vegetarian and vegan tapas. Menu here. 

Timbrell’s Yard: (D5 on map) is behind St Margaret’s Hall and its outside seating overlooks the river. They are a proper pub with the heart of a ‘local’, stocking regional craft beers, West Country ciders and carefully chosen wines. Dog friendly. They serve snacks straight from the kitchen, or you can tuck into the full restaurant menu. Menu here.

Westbury Gardens: (D1 on map) Overlooking the river and where you’ll find our Welcome Tent selling programmes and commemorative badges, the children’s funfair, the Community Groups’ market, a fast food stall and of course a cider and beer tent provided by Iford Cider
