I am here every other fortnight for a lunch and am greeted very friendly every time. The food is solid and the service is nice and uncomplicated.

Cider is good and well kept. The service is fine. The prices are a bit pricey for food. The spiral staircase to the toilets are nothing short of dangerous. Thankfully the Owner was not there as watching him verbally abuse his excellent bar staff on my last visit caused me to walk out - after paying of course.

I and my wife decided to give this place a second chance yesterday. Like last time around, when asking to see the drink list you are told that it does not exist, leaving them free to invent their own prices when you pay. And they will. Asked the waitress for the price before we ordered, had 2 drinks each, and upon paying were presented with totally different prices. When pointing this out they told us we were wrong and increased the price even more.

First time around, about one year ago, we were served Kilkenny gone sour. One of the regulars asking to try it agreed that it was not fresh at all. The young girls behind the counter, however, couldn't find anything wrong with it. Just paid up and left.

Service is not great. Staff seems uninspired, sitting in a group behind the counter most of the time. You have to struggle to get their attention. Waitress also got our order wrong. The few other guests there, both times, seemed to be sexpats having a drink before heading to nearby Soi Cowboy.

Cannot recommend the black Swan to anyone. Will never return.

Great Atmosphere and now has Scrumpy Cider available. We use this as a convenient meeting place whenever we have to catch up with friends or vsitors. Usually planning to have a drink and move on we usually stay and indulge ourselves with huge burgers because the whole feeling is genuine and homey.
