A lively town pub popular with Brewood's younger generation. There were two ales on draft, both in very good condition. As many dogs as humans seemed to be present. Very much a local atmosphere, though we were clearly welcome. No food was being served, though we weren't sure if that was just that evening. I'd be very happy to come back for a few beers next time I'm passing.

Much hard detail below which I'll aim not to repeat.
The Swan appears to be the place to gather in Brewood for an evening drink judging by how busy it was when we visited on Thursday evening. By 7.30 all the seats in the main bar had been taken and we slipped into the quieter, but no less comfortable, room to the left. By the time we departed at around 10 there was standing room only.
The Swan stands on the corner of the market square, opposite The Lion, and is an imposing and traditional coaching inn. Inside is comfortable and atmospheric, helped by being busy on our visit. Despite this we never had to wait any time for a drink as the young, attractive and friendly barmaids were very efficient at spotting those waiting around the crowded bar.
Beers: Regulars are: Wye Valley HPA, Directors, Theakstons Black Bull and Deuchars IPA with the two guests on our visit being Tribute and the excellent Salopian Hop Twister. It's a pretty dull line up of regulars that and with a number of quality breweries locally could be significantly improved but maybe the incumbents appeal to the locals.
I'd certainly head back to The Swan if in Brewood but it would be with happier heart if the regular beer line up were improved.

A wonderfully traditional old coaching inn with a nesting of small rooms,all carpeted and an unusual three sided L shaped bar around which the friendly locals gather.Ale Monster has picked out the salient points,I was impressed by the efficient service from the two young barmaids,despite the pub being busy.There is no muzak,machines,flatscreens,just the hubbub of conversation in comfortable surroundings.
The six handpumps have four regular beers in Theakstons Black Bull,CW Directors,Deuchards IPA and Wye Valley HPA while the guests on our trip were St Austell Tribute and Salopian Hop Twister (top condition,£2.80 great value).The collection of old pump clips attest to some great selections for the guests and quite rightly it features in the 2014 GBG.
This would be my first choice in Brewood,it ticks all the right boxes and would have scored a nine if only the regular ales were a little more adventurous.It's a very fine pub indeed.
