Oggwyn Great left this review about Cygnets

Bit of a strange one this , for a start it looks nothing like a pub , a single storey building which looks like a 1950s pre-fab terraced bungalow with a few bits tagged on and painted in a dusky pink colour.
Once inside its a large single room with a long bar running along most of the rear , its roughly divided into dining and drinking areas with a dart board in the drinking area .
Given the pubs exterior you would not expect to see a large selection of ancient wooden beams and supports but there are many in here , possibly meaning this was once an old barn or similar .
Usual keg taps and a couple of handpulls with a rotating selection of mostly national beers , my Marstons EPA was decent enough as was the service .
Food has a good local reputation .
