user reviews of the White Swan, Oldbury

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

The interior is fairly traditional (I couldn't see any hint of Wetherspoons). Between us we tried all three real ales and although two were excellent the Hobgoblin was merely good. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The big disappointment was the food. Those who had the carvery reckoned it OK for �2.50 but would rather have paid more for more and better. I ordered the 8oz sirloin, medium rare. The first to arrive looked like sandwich steak that had been poached in water. It was replaced without any fuss but the second, although showing signs of red juices, still looked like (and had the texture of) sandwich steak. Fairly good for a couple of pints but we will certainly not be eating there again.

Strange combination of faux-trad exterior and modern, Weatherspoons interior.

90s dance music when we visited Saturday night, plus fancy dress Beer Bus crowd that resembled a rowdy school trip!

�2 for a decent pint of Banks's Dark Mild.

This is a large pub, modern exterior that tries to echo the traditional look, with new Banks's etched windows and a brick facade. I

nside, whilst the bar serving area itself looks quite traditional, the pub decor is modern. It has two rooms, a dining lounge and an open plan bar/lounge, with high stools, some white leather seating (unstained as yet), sofas, brown and red (at last a different colour), red and white plain walls and a mix of carpet and wood flooring. There was a pool table, Sky TV, with the fishing channel on! and subdued music. Service was friendly and the clientele small, but mixed.

Beer; usual stuff, with Banks's MILD, Pedigree and Jennings Cocker-Hoop on handpull, with Banks's Dark MILD on keg, which was very good.

I am not a modern decor fan, but this place was ok to me and the beer choice, with the Dark MILD, as a regular, was good. With the Waggon near enough next door, i will be back in here
