Will Larter left this review about The Swan

This is a popular village local - so popular in fact that I was unable to get to the bar. It's quite a short section of bar in a sort of lobby on entering, with a further small bar, even more hatch-like, just around the corner to the right. The pub occupies quite a long building, but my guess would be that this was originally several cottages that have been knocked through. There were three hand pumps that I could see, with Timothy Taylor Landlord, Tetleys Cask and Moorhouses Pendle Witch, plus three others that I couldn't see because of bar hangers - hey, it's their pub, so I'm not complaining. Beers were served through autovac with a tight sparkler, which I used to approve of back in the day when Tetleys was bitter, and Landlord too. But nowadays both beers are a shadow of their former selves in my opinion - and it's not my taste buds losing their function, as other beers are still bitter. I had a half of Landlord here, and it was as bland as they come; in good condition, but lacking in taste.

Pleasant pub, opened out and slightly modernised but retaining a snug behind the bar and a nice and very effective range. There are some roadside tables at the front, and a decked area to the back by the fair-sized car park up a sharp slope. A warm welcome and exceptional service from the barman (or possibly landlord), who despite being alone volunteered to bring our drinks over and kept us supplied with food and drink. A good range of beers included several Yorkshire brews and some from further afield, and were all in very good condition (Cask Marque listing). the traditional pub food was equally good. I would be happy to return.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Swan

A large three roomed pub with a small lobby entrance and central bar and a snug over in the left hand corner. Six ales were chalked up a board at the bar, so we went for the Wharfedale Dark Mild and Moorhouses Pride of Pendle.
The young barmaid was friendly and chatty and gave us the history of this former coaching house, inviting us to look at some of the pub's features as she was lighting an original cask iron range in the back lounge area. This lounge area had the original flag stone floor, a section of a carved oak beam and the original old locks and hinges on some of the doors. A decent traditional pub this one, where you could spend some time supping.
