Real Ale Ray left this review about The Swan

A good traditional Black Country ales pub, with a varied selection of ales across 11 handpumps, plus four ciders. The interior had a fairly compact and central bar area as you entered, with banquette seting along the front windows and an open fire along the opposite wall, which was lit on our Monday afternoon visit. The lounge area then narrowed and continued along the right hand side of the building.
The pub had a good atmosphere on our visit and a group of retired locals were having good banter sitting opposite the bar. They were also helpful with the No 8 bus timetable and told us to forget the bus and have another few pints. We went for the Salopian Echoes of Symmetry and the Salopian Golden Thread, which were in good shape.

Good selection of ales on today. We had to take the Milestone Azacca Gold back as it was at the end of the barrel, but exchanged no problem. The Yorkshire Heart Platinum EPA and Battledown Original were fine.

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

Black Country Ales pub doing a roaring trade on a Wednesday evening, with a charity quiz night in full swing (and the compere bellowing out the questions and answers without the benefit of any amplification). Partly opened-out at some stage to leave a staple-shaped main bar and a further bar / seating / dining area off to one side at the back. Traditional furniture and decor, with some tiled panels on the lower parts of most walls. Features a very impressive selection of up to 11 real ales and six ciders in a wide variety of styles from various banks of handpumps scattered about the counter. Went from the Salopian Sixth Mass (£3.20), but would have happily gone for almost anything on offer.
