Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Old Swan

Attractive old pub with half-timbered front and side elevations to the main building, with a plainer extension set perpendicularly at the back. Retains a relatively unspoilt interior featuring a very traditional bar at the front and a more comfortable lounge at the back of the central servery. An unusual feature of the former is the peripheral bench seating at the fireplace end which has a big gap between the horizontal and vertical padded elements, so goodness knows what gets lost down the back of that! There is also a dining room of to one side, but it's not clear whether this is in regular use. Not much doing on the beer front, with just Banks's Amber and Mild (£2.85, although this is was in good shape) available from the various handpumps on different parts of the counter. However, it's an interesting place and still worth a visit if in the area.

The Old Swan is a nice looking black and white pub.
Once inside i went into the bar which is at the the front of the pub,this was a decent sized room which is oblong in shape with the bar facing,the seating was comfy bench type and chairs,there was a TV on which was showing motor racing.
There is a smaller square shaped lounge to the rear which looked very smart,there is also a small room to the front right.
The pub is a Banks's tied house,there were three real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Banks's Mild which went down very well,the other beers were Banks's Bitter and Marstons EPA.
This is a proper old school pub that i quite enjoyed having a drink in.
