Inclusivity, Diversity, and Sustainability Policy

At the Black Swan Inn, we are committed to fostering an inclusive, diverse, and sustainable environment that welcomes everyone, regardless of their background, identity, or beliefs. Our core values reflect our dedication to creating a space that celebrates differences, promotes equity, and contributes positively to our community and the environment.

Inclusivity and Diversity:

Welcoming Environment: We embrace individuals of all races, ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations, ages, abilities, and backgrounds. Our establishment is a safe haven where everyone can feel valued and respected.

Equal Treatment: We ensure that every guest and staff member is treated with dignity and fairness. Discrimination and harassment of any form will not be tolerated.

Cultural Appreciation: We celebrate a diverse range of cultures through our menu offerings, special events, and decorations. This allows our guests to experience various culinary traditions and customs.


Local Sourcing: We prioritise sourcing ingredients from local farmers and suppliers to support our community and reduce our carbon footprint.

Reducing Waste: We implement practices to minimise waste, such as composting, recycling, and using eco-friendly packaging.

Energy Efficiency: We strive to conserve energy by employing energy-efficient appliances, lighting, and heating/cooling systems throughout our premises.

Menu Innovation: Our menu is designed to make the most of seasonal ingredients, reducing the need for extensive transportation and preserving the natural flavors of the produce.

Water Conservation: We are dedicated to reducing water consumption through efficient water management systems and raising awareness about its importance.

Community Engagement:

Local Partnerships: We collaborate with local organisations, charities, and initiatives that work towards social and environmental betterment.

Educational Initiatives: We host events, workshops, and talks related to inclusivity, diversity, and sustainability to engage and educate our patrons and staff.

Supporting Employees: We provide our staff with a supportive and inclusive work environment, offering fair wages, training, and opportunities for growth.

Continuous Improvement:

We recognise that building a more inclusive, diverse, and sustainable establishment is an ongoing journey. We are committed to regularly reviewing and updating our policies and practices to ensure that we remain aligned with our values and the evolving needs of our community and environment.

Thank you for being a part of our commitment to a better, more inclusive world.
