My daughter and I decided to celebrate our birthdays with a meal in the Black Swan, and we weren't disappointed. For starter I chose the cajun chicken sliders, and for main, the home made beef and ale pie, with chips and veg. Both were very tasy and well presented. My daughter chose the vegetarian options of hummus for starter and roast veg tart for main, and really enjoyed both.

The Black Swan has its own microbrewery, and the Istanbul Pale Ale was absolutely fantastic.

The male toilets are well worth visiting too, with the urinal bowls made out of beer barrels, and beer fonts for sink taps!! Brilliant!!

Very good food and dog friendly. It does get very busy in the evenings so it is advisable to book if you are going to eat.

Good food, good beer, friendly, nice décor. The Gents bog is "different" and worth a visit!
Do try the 3 x 1/3 pint ale sampler.
