At the opposite side of the church to the Rutland Arms (and close to Spa Lane Vaults), the White Swan is owned by the Raw brewing company. They have about 12 casks, six keg taps and around 60 bottles, with Raw Mucky Duck and - incongruously - Abbot Ale being their only two regulars. The rest are guests and there was a good choice when I was there. The place has been given a very nice makeover so it feels spacious and modern. Itís arranged with a dining area at the front and an area for more casual drinking by the bar. My only slight criticism (and itís not important) is that the barman, although very friendly and chatty, didnít seem to know the first thing about the local beer scene or, indeed, about what he was serving, but you canít always have everything.

A very decent revamp of an old existing pub by Raw Brewery, surprisingly there are not so many of their own beers available, but quite an extensive range of guests. Itís a little modern and slick inside for some tastes but still comfortable enough. Not a great deal of beer talk from the girls on the bar. It is certainly worth a visit and is one of three really good pubs in Chesterfield.

Visited on 7th March 2014. A short walk from the Railway station and on the edge of town. A good start to a weekend with a decent selection of Raw beers and other guests, mainly from the locality. Nice conversion but does feel a bit clinical hence the ambiance down a point. Definitely a highlight and a great addition to the Chesterfield "scene"

Very good range across cask, keg, and a suprisingly well stocked fridge. One surprise is that for a Raw Brewery pub they donít have that much Raw beers, putting more emphasis on guest cask ales. Without doubt worth a visit when in Chesterfield.

Easily the best pub in Chesterfield. Decent range of ales on cask(about 10), many from local breweries. A few craft kegs also, seen beers from Arbor, Magic Rock and Kernal on tap. Fairly large selection of craft bottled beers from UK, Europe and the US. Smart modern comfortable interior. Reasonable prices considering the central location. If visiting Chesterfield this place is a must.

good lineup of Raw beers and a good if sometimes uninspiring range of cask guests, usually at least one decent beer on keg. Prices good compared to other pubs in town, and pretty reasonable for keg too. The (extensive) bottle selection does seem rather expensive, though I havenít bought any so havenít included them in value rating!

Very impressive Raw Brewing outlet in the shadow of the famous twisted spire. Stylish and comfortable interior with great views. Good range of local and guest hand pulls and a few interesting kegs. Few bars rival it's bottle range either. Worth a trip to the town just to visit.
