“Little known gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

Regular visitors to The Swan pub will no doubt already be aware that there is a gallery upstairs, but it may come as a surprise to everyone else. The gallery offers a good sized space for artists wishing to display their work and they currently host a different exhibition every month. I attended the opening night of local photographer Eden Nicholson's first solo exhibition; Fluxus, and was impressed with the quality of the mostly local work as well as the innovative display. There was a great buzzing atmosphere in the gallery itself as well as great music and frivolity in the bar downstairs where the folk club were enjoying live music. The staff were helpful and accommodating and everyone i spoke to had nothing but praise for both the gallery and the pub.

“Best Pub Around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013 via mobile

The swan is a wonderful pub in the heart of Horndon. Always hosting many a good night of entertainment, pub quiz, curry nights, bands, outdoor music events in the summer which are generally packed and of course the sunday night folk club.
The staff are very welcoming and friendly and always look after thier guests. Good food and drink at a great price. This is the best pub in the world.

“THE SWAN & THE STAFF HAVE BECOME AN ADDICTION.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

My husband & I was invited to the swan one evening in July. By a friend. It happened to be a Thursday, it was a fabulous evening. With a meal and desert for ONLY £6. We were made to feel like family. The pub has a superb atmosphere and now have become addicted. Great night out to chill and chat to friends, without music blasting.
