I understand that this pub is under new management/ownership quite recently, we had it recommended to us so thought we would give it a try. We do eat out regularly and always look for good pubs, serving homecooked food at a decent price. This pub meets all three criteria without a doubt. The evening menu is not huge in variation... More

On a recent visit to the U.K. to visit friends who live in the U.K., they took us on a drive around to see the scenery around their home, touring Chesterfield. We ended up stopping for a pint at the Black Swan, a very friendly local pub - this was before their expansion an the restaurant upstairs. The pub was... More

No longer serves food and staff are rude and ignorant! When ordering drinks I couldn't understand the woman behind bar so I asked her to repeat herself. When I still couldn't understand her she rudely accused me of being drunk! I have never been so insulted. Someone working in the service industry should not be talking to customers like this....

Although the pub is still open, it no longer serves food. Pub is currently by a management company. Still a good place to go for a drink. Friendly atmosphere and reasonably priced drinks.

A group of 6 of us recently ate at the Black Swan. The food was fantastic, atmosphere great, service excellent and the price was very impressive. Without a doubt, I will be returning. I personally preferred this place to the Crispin and Poets Corner. I would definitely recommend a visit if you are wanting pub food. The food that evening... More
