The Swan is a 17th century former coaching inn in the small rural village lying in the north downs just of the a34 between Didcot and Chieveley.

Most pubs in East Ilsley existed to serve the sheep breeders and traders who crowded into the village for its famous fortnightly sheep fairs.

East Ilsley’s sheep fairs, granted by charter during the reign of Henry III, were second only to Smithfield in size.

The record was 80,000 sheep penned in a single day.
