The Black Swan

A newly refurbished pub with a great community atmosphere which holds free-admission live music nights featuring local bands, as well as Irish music nights, discos, and traditional ceili music. The venue is small but has good sound and a terrific lighting rig.

Location and Transport

11 Crown Street

The Black Swan is easy to find, at the bottom end of Crown Street at the junction with St Mary's Road. Crown Street is off the Cowley Road, directly opposite Tesco. There are plenty of buses along the Cowley Road, and it is about five minutes walk from Iffley Road, and ten minutes walk from The Plain. Nearest public parking is the Union Street Pay and Display car park, behind Tesco.


The pub is all on one level and is fully accessible.
