About the Pub

Set in a quiet street off the main shopping area, the Coach & Horses provides a peaceful haven. In summer. the frontage is ablaze with its magnificent floral displays. Victorian in style, the pub has a wood-panelled bar, a small side snug area and a large restaurant/lounge.

The pub dates back to the early 19th century, it was expanded into the neighboring building in the 1980s by noted former landlord Roger Goodall (who was immortalised by Salopian Brewery in the 1990s when they produced a limited edition bottle conditioned beer called Goodalls Gold (see picture)).

On the opposite corner used to be another pub up until 1820, the Swan, from which the street (Swan Hill) got it's name. (Trivia note: former leader of Mott the Hoople, Ian Hunter, wrote a song on a 1990s solo album called '23a Swan Hill', a nearby address, inspired by his early life in the town.) The Coach was a very early entry in the Good Beer Guide (GBG) in 1975. Detail was sparse in those days but it was described as a "friendly pub in the centre of town" and Bass/Worthington Bitter and Mild were said to be available. A classic pub, unsurprisingly perhaps it has been a constant presence in the GBG for over 20 years now.

Keep an eye open for Happy Hours!

Please note that last entry is 11pm (10.30pm Sunday).
