Komakino . left this review about The Swan

Outside the old centre of Winslow, this corner pub has some '30s trappings in some of the internal light wood panelling which appear original and may have been a two-roomer in a previous life. However, that's probably where any interest ends as it's a tired old beast with the main bar area being a rectangular room entered from Buckingham Road with the bar facing. There's some banquette seating to the left within a bay window: an area partially hidden by a wide column. A few tables and chairs in the main bar area and a raised area far right which has two small circular tables with intricate iron legs and leather-upholstered chairs, which stand out from the rest of the decor, although the peeling wallpaper here carries on the overriding feeling of disinterest. Surprisingly, there were two ales on - Burton Bitter and Lancaster Bomber. Unsurprisingly, my pint of the Burton was on the iffy side, even though good value at £3.10 it was. The prevailing air of apathy here makes one wonder how long such an attitude can survive in the current climate.
