Blue Scrumpy left this review about The Swan Inn

The Swan is situated on the edge of Ulverston on the main road out of the town and was probably the third best of the ten pubs I visited in the town on Thursday evening.

There's a good ale range here. 7 different ales were on for my visit - Fell Tinderbox IPA, Acorn Gorlovka, Mallinson's Centennial, Hawkshead Windermere Pale & Mosaic, Rudgate Jorvik Blonde & Timothy Taylor Landlord.

The landlord and customers were all friendly.

This is a detached free-house pub, in the GBG, with a beer garden at the rear. The pub is Victorian, but has a touch of the Georgian too. It is in white render, with black paintwork around the unsympathetically restored windows and on the cornerstones. There is a pilastered doorway and a front gable with finial. It looks tidy, as it does inside. The interior now has a single open plan room (the former rooms being ripped out), which is part partitioned to make a dart area. The place is generally in cream and white, with some blue carpet and some wood flooring. There are a few mixed pictures and a bottle collection, as well as an old kitchen range. There was no food. The TV wasn't on and no music. The service was friendly and a mixed clientele - busy, but mainly local it seemed. Beer; usual tap stuff with Saltaire Raspberry Blonde and Bavarian Black (decent); Yate's Bitter and Landlord's Choice; Hawkeshead Brodie, Lakeland Gold, Windermere Pale and Cumbrian 5 Hop and a Phoenix White Tornado. A great pub, with quality beer. I could stay here all day.

The Swan is situated away from the middle of Ulverston on the eastern side of it.
This is a decent looking pub from the outside and once inside it was also quite nice witha very comfortable carpeted room,when we went in this pub it was a Hartleys tied house and there were three real ales on the bar we had a drink of Hartleys bitter and this was a very nice drink the other beers were Hartleys mild and XB.
