Bucking Fastard left this review about Black Swan in Hand

A modern sports bar but with a name that harks back to previous pubs in this area,I went here on the back of the 2020 GBG Entry.It has a large interior with lots of room for vertical drinking along with large banquettes in the front windows and in a substantial side section.There is a large beer terrace out at the rear.
Lots of flatscreens show sport,the muzak was loud and had a deep base but can no doubt be turned to 11 at peak times .The 4 handpumps on the rear bar were offering Doom Bar,Mansfield Cask and Jennings Head Point (decent nick) and all ale £2 with care taken about conditioning and topping up.On a beer scoring basis I can see why this was chosen for the GBG ,but it wasn't an exceptional ale choice nor a comfortable pub to drink in.Friendly service however.
