A pub we’ve gained: The Swan reopens!

I find through my Panoramio gallery that a pub I feared was lost for good – The Swan, up on the Pelsall Road – has since reopened. After initially restarting with an interim management a few weeks ago, this comfy, welcoming hostelry is now in the very capable hands of Lynne & Vic, who previously ran the George and Dragon in Clayhanger, where they developed a great reputation.

All are welcome for a selection of ales and spirits in a warm, welcoming family atmosphere, so I’m sure all you readers will join with me in wishing Lynne and Vic well in their new enterprise. I look forward to a second review on PubBlog, as I’m sure that Stymaster won’t leave a new prospect unsampled for long!

See you there…

  • Well, I’ve not done any revisit posts on pubblog, but I have been back to The Swan since the temporary manager was there, and it’s a very pleasant pub for sure- but the George & Dragon was too a few years ago.

    Our last visit was, in fact, last weekend, where we went to the Railway and the Fingerpost in Pelsall, then The Swan & The Shoulder of Mutton. I’m pleased to report it was a good experience!

    Fancy a pint in there one time? The beer is pretty good.

    […] Personally, I think this is an excellent proposal. The Hussey has been a landmark for decades, and it would be sad to see it decay to rubble like MacWarreners or so many other lost local pubs. The proposed extensions and facelift seem sympathetic and in keeping with the general character of what is a lovely building. This pub has always – even in the good times – seemed to be dozing, to never have reached it’s full potential. Let us hope, that with decent management, good beer and food, that this lost hostelry can thrive again. Brownhills is getting desperately short of good boozers these days, with the nearby Swan closed again. […]

    […] far as I can tell, this is the second time The Swan has been rescued, and I wish Jane & Geoff all the best. It’s a lovely little pub with a proud history and […]
