Looking for a pub in Cockermouth for a Sunday afternoon to watch the football whilst on holiday. Cracking friendly local pub with local ales at cheap prices and 2 large screen tv's with sport. Loved it and Liverpool beat Arsenal 4-0.

This is a brilliant local pub serving a good range of fine real ales. The beers are mostly Jenning's with a variety of guest ales. It has an extremely friendly atmosphere, with a great landlord and staff. It doesn't serve food which means you can...More

We visited the Swan a couple of times whilst in Cockermouth. This is friendly local in residential area away from the town centre. Good choice of cask ales and great for sports fans.

A locals pub which was busy with chatter . TV with football in corner well attended by locals but not pervasive through the bar. 5 or more different beers giving variety. Could see this being one of the last bars to close in Cockermouth

Great, local, traditional pub. Packed to the brim when we first visited, but lovely atmosphere. Don't expect large TV screens or loud music - just good ales, good vibes, and a good night!
