user reviews of the Swan, Westgate

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

It was a nice bright late April Saturday afternoon so I decided to have half a pint. Master Brew and Old Speckled Hen was on offer (A freehouse) - This is a strangely divided pub as there is a pool room, darts room, saloon and private bar with a large restaurant area via a walk through some passages. The green and black tartan carpet flooring is quite attractive and the decor is the usual red velour, dark stained wood. Two flatscreen TVs, although these are not loud. Some of the decor does look tired but for some this can be part of the charm of a seaside pub. This pub is located directly on the gentle seafront of Westgate and one of three pubs in Westgate (Nott Castle and Bake and Ale House (NEW!!)) The ale was standard fair, not so keen on MasterBrew - the service was friendly - the clientele was okay too.

The outside pub boards state in large lettering, families welcome, but once inside you see large printed notices stating by law children aren't allowed in the room with the bar, and also another one that says children until 14 aren't allowed to use the pool table. On a sunday afternoon we visited just for a drink and some crisps, told we couldn't sit in the bar room with our child, and were directed into the pool room which was full with other people watching the football game. There was nowhere nearby to put our drink, and it all felt an inconvenience. My advice would be to avoid if you have a family. They really need to remove the families welcome sign from the outside of this pub.

large freehouse. decor dated, the masterbrew I sampled was pleasant enough. Food was basic pub fodder; fish and chips though wasn't great. Agree about the friendly service.

Fabulous food, next to a secluded seaside beach. Many old features. Large screens, Real ale, and very friendly service.
