The Swan is one of the better pubs in Buxton, traditional in look, with a number of small rooms and a strangely large amount of nautical paraphernalia. The crowd is slightly older but they seem friendly enough and there are a couple of decent ales on tap. Sky Sports is played on the TV, but it doesn't seem to be particularly intrusive. Perhaps not the pub for a lively Friday night, the Swan holds its own very well and is worth a popping in for a couple of pints.
