Swan in the Rushes
At the heart of the Loughborough real ale scene
The Swan in the Rushes has been part of the Castle Rock family for over 25 years, before this it was known as the Charnwood public house. The place was closed and seemingly unwanted before the company saw its potential, gave it a new name and re-opened the doors to a thirsty public. The pub has remained an integral part of the Loughborough real ale drinking scene ever since, offering a wide range of ten cask ales at any one time, one of which is always a mild, plus 5 traditional ciders – the Swan regularly stocks the newest brewery to the area: Charnwood.
In addition to its real ale pedigree The Swan in the Rushes also offers over 30 single malt whiskies.
The pub has a traditional include bar area, with jukebox and quiz machine, a quiet lounge with national and local newspapers available daily and also a dining/family room and after a bar renovation in late 2014, the Swan now offers a dynamic range of world and craft beer. Other areas include a heated smoking area and car park for customers.
In October 2013 the Hop Loft was opened on the first floor, which is a multi-purpose function room fitted with a world beer bar. The Hop Loft boasts an outside terrace, free Wi-Fi, optional staffed bar, plasma screen and spacious and airy seating space – making it perfect for a variety of events and celebrations.
