Quinno _ left this review about The Black Swan

Attractive street corner GK locals pub. Been knocked-through which results in a wonky layout but not displeasing. Pub carpet, white walls and grey wainscot, it didn’t feel too bad as a place to drink. No ale available so half a Guinness was my choice, which I only got after an ordering fiasco (“don’t worry, she’s a bit thick” said a local loudly enough for the hapless barmaid to overhear). There’s worse in Abingdon, I suppose.

As mentioned by Old Boots, Morland Original is the only real ale available. This is a good old fashioned drinking pub which does do food but not in the evenings. Shows all live football via foreign channels. It's a tad expensive here for the area (£3.50 for Fosters).

Old Boots left this review about The Black Swan

An old looking exterior but much modernised inside, it's a long thin pub with a long counter down the back wall. Apart from a few traces of an old pub it's a bog standard town pub with the usual screens, machines and pool table. The tiled fireplace is possibly original and quite nice but beige painted ceiling beams perhaps less so. I think there's a beer garden but I didn't check as I sampled yet more indifferent Morland's Original, the only beer on the three pulls.
