“Great place for lunch”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

Popped in for a spot of lunch - great choice on the menu and very reasonable prices. I had the peppered chicken served with chips and salad, my husband had the Aussie pizza. Both dishes were lovely, the pizza was huge - big enough for 2 to share. Very busy but service fast and staff friendly.

“You don't have to drink Guinness”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

At least 4 craft ales on tap, extensive bottled beer menu, people who care about their beer. We drank here a few times; food was good value and of a decent quality. There were lo-key music sessions and a weekly chess club. Good local in a great town.

“*Food* Craft Beers*Friendly*Relaxing* Vibrant*Quirky*”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

A MUST VISIT: Family friendly, parties, food, craft beers, beer garden, the friendliest staff you could meet. In Two Weeks:
EXCELLENT FOOD: Plenty on the menu offering tasty meals at affordable prices.I had vegetarian pizza, very tasty with lots of toppings sitting in the sun. Had spicy chicken wings another day, finger licking good. The owner Dale did a barbecue to give nibbles to the customers on another visit, nice peppery sausages.
MUSIC: 21 OUTS played on the Rooftop http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DDh8f1E6Zuc&feature=share&list=UUdNzuiVabPvR_7KbUpFsuMA
Salsa night with 'Ocho Punto G' From Barcelona was fantastic with Salsa dance lessons in the beer garden before the band played. I thought I was in Spain.
BEERS: Dale has a fine selection of 'Craft Beers" and has new brews in regularly to tickle the taste buds. A pot of tea is also no bother and the coffee is lovely.
ATMOSPHERE: Staff are very friendly. The Swagman attracts a lovely eclectic mix of people making it an interesting place to be.

“Great food, craic and staff”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

Went here 3 times in the weekend. Fantastic pub. Enjoyed a few drinks in the sunny beer garden in the day. Went back that night and had great craic listening to a fantastic band, place was hopping and the staff were great. Had a very good pub lunch day after, chowder was exceptional. So overall ticks all the boxes for good food and a great night out.
