|Wonderful period interior with a range of fascinating features.|
I found the ales well-kept and the evening atmosphere very lively. After escaping from the warren of the nearby Paragon Hotel it was a truly welcome find.
It's just about not too far to walk for a curry afterwards either.

|Another pub which I have only ever visited on a football trip when it was absolutely rammed (in fact a couple of our lads left as it was so busy). This was my first visit on a normal day and what a treat. The Bankss Bitter was on good form and they have a nice little range of ales (from the Marstons portfolio). What I not noticed before was just how soptless this pub is - the floor tiles were bright and shiny the pumps were gleaming and the woodwork and fittings were immaculate. I had a good chat with the landlady as it was quiet and she was very friendly and chatty and I left after a couple of beers feeling very refreshed and cheerful as this is a super pub which does everything right in my book - and that's why it gets so busy!!|

|Traditional pub with impressive interior and a friendly welcome. I enjoyed a pint of Banks's Mild on my visit.|

|We called on Saturday and enjoyed well-kept Banks' Bitter and Jennings' Cocker Hoop efficiently served by professional bar staff. We left with no complaints to visit the nearby Anchor which is my preferred of the two pubs, mainly for the greater ale selection. But we would certainly call again when in the area.|

|i visited the swan on wed 23rd feb. i bought a pint of banks's mild which i have been drinking for over 20 years.|
the beer was turning to the vinegar stage. the landlady refused to swop it for another pint(i had one sip). she also refused to try it as apparently she doesn't like mild. strange but true. when i questioned her decision she offered me a half in replacement. i turned her down. the camra rep standing next to me wouldn't comment.
shame because the pub is immaculate, beautiful in fact.
but if a landlady doesn't like beer and can't change a pint when its obviously off the cleaners and maintanance wages count for nothing.
i had to take a pint back years ago...but that was changed so isn't worth mentioning.
i've never reviewed on one of these things before and probably won't again but i was quite frankly and rightly brassed off wot!
