About the Pub

Barristers Bar is a separate bar at the rear of the Swan Hotel, which is a Grade II listed building dating from 1845, though no longer offering accommodation. The wood-paneled interior of the bar has been retained and tastefully decorated to successfully recreate a traditional pub atmosphere. A heated courtyard with tables is used as a smoking area and through which the shared toilets with The Swan are accessed. Early in the the week and during the day Barristers has the relaxed atmosphere of a local. A lone TV usually has sports news on in the background. In the evenings, especially at weekends, the atmosphere is livelier, boosted by karaoke nights and by customers from the neighbouring Swan nightclub. Opening hours are “late” so can vary but often last until well past sunrise! It is a popular venue for those in the town centre that enjoy quality well-kept real ale. The range of cask beers varies, with 4 to 6 during the week and 8 at weekends. Disabled toilet facilities are available. See website for details of listing - and
