Visited in januar 2012 on our pre-winter-ale-pubcrawl..
Pat, you will love this place :-)
Loud music, skeletons, bones and scary stickers is the main deco here ( and it was not Halloween... )
8 casks, good variation, and 1 cider. In it´s own way very cosy..

An odd grungy pub with nine taps, three of which were off. The Swan Inn is in one of the scruffy side streets of the city centre that look deserted during the day but seem to come alive at night. The wrinkled old punk in black leather and studs who was smoking by the door when we went in pretty much set the scene. It’s a bit dingy inside, basic and fairly plain apart from the grotesque skulls and other gruesome motifs tattooed on the walls over each pair of lamps. Heavy metal music was emanating from an old fashioned juke box but it wasn’t too intrusive. We nicknamed it “the Patrik pub” after our good friend oh6gdx – he would love it.
