Description: We are a friendly run family pub. Where a warm welcome awaits you every time. You can sit outside on the patio or sit over looking the river Severn . Enjoying a nice ice cold drink or have a meal, looking out for the kingfishers or the otters. In the winter, you can enjoy a meal inside feeling the warmth of our log burner. Or just enjoy a drink. Soaking up the friendly atmosphere. Sit at the bar and have a nice chat with our friendly locals. We are a dog friendly pub. There are water bowls outside, for our four legged friends. We also serve a variety of teas, coffees, lattes, fruit teas, hot chocolate etc. There is a special board, which is changed throughout the year. With a large selection of vegetarian options.

My husband ate fish and chips, which he declared was excellent. The fish was white, and the batter crispy and was excellent value for money. My burger was huge and very tasty. There was a specials board with a good selection too.

Went to the Black Swan on a recommendation and found it to be friendly and welcoming. Beautiful location, a relaxed atmosphere and great food. We shared two lite bites and chips finished off with a delicious lemon sponge.

We visited the swan during our stay at Coalport youth hostel. After a long day walking we stopped in the evening for dinner. This is a great pub. The beer is good and the menu sounded good so we went for two courses. The starters were fantastic, good portions, well presented and better than standard pub food. Chilli beef, kofte and jack spratts were especially good.
For mains I went for the black swan burger and it was huge! A big old burger with a stack of chorizo, chicken breast and cheese. It was awesome. Both courses came to around £16. We were all pleasantly full.
Added to all this the pub had a relaxed atmosphere and the staff were friendly and welcoming, stopping to chat with us.
Best pub along the river!

There are ploughman's and then there are ploughman's that someone has put a bit of thought into. We were staying locally and had been recommended to the Black Swan. It was our last night and it was very humid. However we needed something to eat and headed out. On our way there we met a " local lady Louise" who showed us a short cut-a big thank you. When we arrived we got some drinks and found a table- very friendly staff. We had a look at the menu lots of tempting meals. However I just could not face anything hot. We decided to have the ploughman's one cheese and one ham so we could have a bit of each. Lovely presentation and plenty of it and I particularly liked the pickle dish across the middle. A very good idea keeping the pickle separate in case someone didn't like a particular pickle ( not us! ). Great salad , warm roll, great price, great place. Would definitely recommend.
