The Black Swan looks like a nice English pub, and that’s mostly what it is. It’s big, they serve a lot of food, and they even have an English flag hanging by the door. But they also play good music, show sports on TV, and serve food very late at night. So you’ll find a good crowd here most nights. There’s a bar up front and dining room in the back, and you can eat in either space. But if you just want to grab a beer, sit up front. You can watch sports on TV up there.
