The Swire Inn is known for their pub-style food and delicious craft cocktails. 

The Swire Inn, Middletown Ohio

Find delicious pub-type food for lunch and dinner at The Swire Inn. You can always expect a welcoming atmosphere, flavorful eats and refreshing drinks. This Middletown restaurant prides itself in their house specialties; from mouthwatering pot roast to hearty flatbreads, there is something for everyone. Located in a beautiful historic building, its quaint setting features original hardwood floors, exposed brick and outdoor patio seating. While there is a lot to love, the craft cocktails at The Swire Inn might be at the top of my list; bar manager Logan Smallwood is always creating new delicious combinations. Check out these five favorites! 

1. Charlie + Will Getaway Sidecar

Made with Titos vodka, Cointreau, fresh lime juice, and house made mint simple syrup.

This cocktail is inspired by The Swire Inn's neighbors, Charlie + Will Provisions! This boutique is known for shopping + shenanigans, located right next to the restaurant in the same historic 1800s building. Grab your Getaway Sidecar or a DORA drink, and head to Charlie + Will to shop til' you drop.

2. Rosie Moose Mule

Made with Four Roses bourbon, homemade mint syrup, rose water, fresh lime juice and Crabbie’s ginger beer.

The Rosie Moose Mule is also inspired by another neighboring shop, Rosie Moose Boutique! This gorgeous clothing boutique is located in the same building as Charlie + Will Provisions on the second floor. Offering women's clothing and accessories, Rosie Moose Boutique is just like this cocktail— a classic favorite with a trendy twist!

A simple, fresh strawberry and thyme gin and tonic! Gin not your thing? These flavors also pair deliciously with vodka too!
