The Swan can be summed up in a few words; it's an excellent modern, real ale pub in the centre of Cheltenham. A local CAMRA pub of the year a couple of years running, it's proof that you don't need a rough-hewn, spit-and-sawdust, grubby environment in which to serve authentic real ale - The Swan is most definitely none of these. It's a bright, modern environment, shoehorned into an old building, serving three decent (Cask Marque) ales on the hand pumps, a couple of ciders and plenty of other booze besides. There's a giant TV screen for the sport, a covered courtyard, providing even more space of the pub and beer garden out the back. There are loads of events on to entertain the regulars - a quiz night every Monday, live music and student nights to name but a few. It was the wrong time of day for us to eat, so we didn't, but the food looked OK and it was decently priced. Even though it was busy, the service was pretty quick, friendly and patient. With the added bonus it's just enough off the beaten track for it not to be found by the majority of punters (we were there during the Festival), the Swan is an excellent place for a post-race pint. Whether you're celebrating a big win (fat chance) or contemplating your losses, watching the match with your mates or joining in the quiz, we're pretty sure you'll leave the Swan with a smile on your face.
