Some really well kept & interesting ales. Liking the happy hour prices and Sunday deal for ales.

Gets packed at the weekend but seems to be very well controlled - definitely the most popular late night venue in the town.

Shame about the yard - it could be really lovely but seems to be just for smokers. Hide the bins, get some more furniture and cut down the massive tree that all the pigeons sit in and shit in your pint!

Overall though it's a nice place and the staff are friendly and knowledgeable. Repeat business - definitely.

Have been here quite a bit recently and noticed they're offering a good little selection of real ales and the odd cider which appear to change often.
Good pub for a night out; live bands play fairly often or you can have a bop in the disco upstairs which also has a little bar.
I like the fact I can buy a good pint in here after the decent pubs in Wantage have closed on a Friday or Saturday night.

Visited on a Saturday afternoon, pretty quiet, but I think that the Grand National was on the telly in the back. Decent pint of Best Mates Vicars daughter served pleasantly in good condition. The Juke Box was a bit loud with only a couple of others in the bar but I enjoyed the pub in a rugged sort of way. I'd go back when I'm next in Wantage.

Duke Box is spelt with a "J". Indeed the Lochness Monster has left a vacant milk churn.

Occasionally has some interesting real ale.

Cocktails are their speciality.

Don't get too giddy in the Swan or you may have to deal with the rather large Landlord.

Well run pub, give it a try.
