Steve C left this review about The Swan

The Swan is a pub of two halves with a small comfortable and quiet bar with fireplace to the left and larger bar to the right that was busy with an after-work local crowd during a recent Friday visit. There is a dartboard to the right rear just before a door to the pool room. There are at least two televisions and Sky Sports is advertised. These were off during my visit in favour of some background music. Live music is held here on Fridays and Saturdays and there is a DJ from 16:00 on Sundays. Tuesday is open mic night; the pool table is free on Wednesdays and there is a weekly quiz on Thursdays.
The bars support a standard keg range and there are nine hand pumps across the two bars. Timothy Taylors Boltmaker, Ruddles County and Fullers London Pride were available from both bars. The third bank of three hand pumps in the quieter bar was unused. The plethora of old pump clips around both top bars is evidence that there is a rotating cask ale range. The only food I noted as being advertised was the homemade beef stew for £5.50. I would be surprised if this was the only available hot food.
I found this to be a decent local boozer that I would return to visit.

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

Difficult to tell how old this recently reopened pub is since the dark red brickwork and tile hanging has been a local building style for a very long time. Anyway, the etched glass is old enough to feature Smoking Room on one window, but the three rooms around the main counter have been partially opened out at some stage (although the central section with the dartboard is devoid of furniture and there are only a few benches around the rear pool table). However, there is also another smaller, tapered bar around the side with more seating. Doom Bar and Pride available from two of the three handpumps, but Exmoor Christmas Ale (£3.80) was also being dispensed directly from a cask on the counter.

David Collett left this review about Swan Inn

After getting a good soaking walking from the station to find this pub, I was disappointed to be told that it no longer serves any cask ale. I chose a bottled beer from Sharp's (a red IPA with a nautical name I can't remember) which was okay and drank it quickly while looking at all the beer mats adorning the walls and ceilings representing cask ales that they have served in the past. Friendly barmaid otherwise the rating would have been lower.
