A picture of Olde Swan Brewery


One of the older brewpubs still in existence, it is believed to have opened in the 1830s, although the pub building dates from the 1860s. By the mid-20th Century, it was in the hands of the Pardoe family and stayed so until the mid-1980s famously being run by Ma Pardoe, a name by which the pub and brewery became affectionately known. Following her death, it was owned by a number of parties, including Tom Hoskins Brewery PLC and Wiltshire Brewery, with brewing ceasing in 1993. Ownership of the pub was then passed around various companies until it landed in the hands of Punch Taverns. Following a major refurbishment, the brewery reopened on 3rd February 2001. Although much of the brewing equipment has been renewed, the 7BBL plant is still in the original layout and plans exist to convert it back to coal power.

The links we provide cover all areas possibilities: Ceremonial Counties which are the counties for which a Lord-Lieutenant has been appointed, Historic Counties (and their allied county boroughs) which represent the position before the 1974 re-organisation and Local Authority which represents the third tear District level.
