About Great Chart

The village of Great Chart has been in existence for more than 1,200 years and is first mentioned in a document dating back to AD 762. At this time, it was operating the first recorded mechanical water mill in Britain.

Great Chart is often seen as the perfect place to visit if you want all the benefits of a rural location, but still want to be able to enjoy close connections to the wider area, great pubs, and amenities.

Pop along to the Swan & Dog pub and explore Great Chart for yourself!

Great Chart’s Pub, The Swan & Dog

As the oldest pub in Great Chart, we have become a historical hub for the community. Our street is a conservation area, with the majority of properties here being listed buildings - including our timber-framed, 16th-century building here at The Swan & Dog.

Previously known as The Swan Inn, our pub was renamed as a tribute to a previous long-standing pub in our village called The Black Dog. We are now The Swan & Dog; a lovely Ashford pub serving splendid food and drink and maintaining a historic presence.
