Ah, a warm, cosy welcoming pub with a vast selection of real ales, presided over by a jovial landlord and his mildly flirtatious wife. Good company, comfortable and with a secure atmosphere... Ah hang on I was thinking of somewhere else - this is an average chain pub with average beer and when I visited it a couple of months ago had an unpleasant smell of raw sewage in the seating area.

The best pub on our short trip around some of Brentwoods pubs. yes, the beer was just the very common Greene king IPA, but the pub was friendly enough and the besr of an everage bunch.

As mentioned by others on this site, this was once a smashing pub with everything going for it. It is now the worst pub I have had the displeasure to visit in Brentwood. Truly abominable. My recommendation ? Give it as wide a berth as you possibly can. Not even worth using as a shortcut through to the back of the High Street !

was a brilliant proper pub with an excellent selection of ales, lager & good bar snacks all being served by happy staff.Pub games & music with a mixture of random seating...then it was refitted and became a normal 'lager' pub..just like all the others on the high st...just ok now

This was one of the best pubs in Brentwood, however, it is now rather disappointing. The Swan was the point of call for my pals and I in Brentwood as well as many BT colleagues. It had a proper pub atmosphere a good range of beer; both ales and lagers along with pleasant staff.
There are no longer any guest ales, and while some of the staff do their best, when I was there they were being guided by an over officious supervisor who was abrupt and was more concerned with dealing with silly issues than customer service.
The Swan has become, like many chain pubs, style over substance.
I'm going to try The Victoria as mentioned by a previous post.
