Swan and Three Cygnets

Elvet Bridge Durham DH1 3AG 0191 384 0242

We say

The "Swan and Three”, as this perennially popular pub is known, attracts hordes of students and locals alike – mainly for its cheap ale but also its grand riverside location. It's a Sam Smith’s pub, so choices are limited to the brewery – but they do have plenty of lagers, bitters and ales, and even a fruit beer. With a pleasant site overlooking the river, and an outdoor terrace, it’s the perfect summertime hangout.
