This is a relatively basic pub among Mill Road's famous real ale houses. I popped in on a Monday night, attracted by the traditional Irish session, which seems to be a weekly event. The beer was pretty good if pricey and the free music wonderful, but a smile would have been welcome.

This pub, located on Mill Road in Cambridge is a really nice pub, It doesn't give the cosiness feel like other pubs in Cambridge can offer (see my reviews of the Free Press and Devonshire Arms) but it is a nice pub. It is also open until late on a Friday and Saturday night, certainly until 2am.

Went for a drink with friends. The staff were friendly and the beer was nice. The atmosphere is good and there is a good outside area. The White Swan is good to watch live sport at.

I have been to the White Swan in Stow Cum Quy a couple of times now. On each visit I have very much enjoyed it. I have found the service to be very friendly and their Sunday lunch is very good. I went also went to their Beer festival last night, which put on extremely well. An enjoyable night was... More

The food is very good. Solid pub grub. Beer ok but keep away from the Green King rubbish. Most staff are friendly but mad Fellow Irish bar tender with bipolar issues makes customers feel uncomfortable. Enjoyed sport occasions especially watching Irish rugby and most sports. Irish barman causes issues which is not conducive to a good pub atmosphere. He needs... More

We walk past another pub to get to the Swan. Great people, great staff and excellent food, well worth the walk!!! As for the taps in the ladies, they are a lovely modern design, really not that hard to work out ;-))

This place is a great, genuine Irish pub. It's run by a lovely Cork man by the name of Philly, with Irish music played live on Monday nights, with the Gaelic games shown regularly and with genuine Irish people frequenting it. In addition you'll get the best pint of Guiness in Cambridge [FACT!] and if you order the Irish stew...... More
