Shame to abandon the White Swan name as it was well known in the town. Ale was good quality although the smell of the malt from the brewery part was a bit overpowering for me. Didn't eat but food i saw looked good.

Knew this place when it was briefly a Wetherspoon, now it's part of the Brewhouse & Kitchen chain. The brewing equipment is near the entrance, and is not behind glass as with other brewpubs, which is nice. The smell of beer brewing wafts through the pub. Four casks on offer - all brewed on the premises, plus some kegs which I didn't look at. Does food. Breakfast for £5, and meals appear to start around the £8 mark. Nice ambiance with lots of wood and little knick knacks. I like the place, and the beers, while nothing special, were enjoyable. Worth looking into if you're in the area. Is it better than when it was a Wetherspoon? Hard to say. The prices have gone up. The only cask beers are those brewed in the pub, but it's also a positive that it brews its own beers, so that's a swings and roundabouts thing. Both are chains. The building is as attractive as it was before. I think it has an edge as something you might recommend to people, but is perhaps less flexible and less family friendly.

Nice place. Part of the Brewhouse & Kitchen (crap name) chain. The beers are brewed in house and are rather good. Remember to look at the pub's magnificent exterior.

Seems the word has got around. Really busy when we went last Sunday afternoon. The beers brewed on the premises are superb.
