Built in 1771 the building was originally warehouses servicing the Trent and Mersey Canal wharf. These were converted into the pub in the mid-19th century. The Swan Inn Stone has a varied history and was finally taken under the wings of the Blundell Family in 1998.
Owners of the John Joules and Sons Company since 1991, the Blundells: Brian and his son Geoff, were the first to re-introduce 3 of the beers, with original recipes brewed under license into the town since the close of the brewery in the 1970’s.
Now found as a regular feature amongst a compliment of 9 cask ales OLD PRIORY recreated in 1992 remains as popular today as it has ever been.
We don’t serve food as such, we find it allows us to concentrate on the quality of our real cask ales, although a selection of fresh baps are available through the week, accompanied by ‘Staffordshire Pork’ Pies.
The Swan Inn Stone supports local and national live music & entertainment. Take a look in the Gig Guide to find out what’s on. It’s not all ‘covers’ bands, we have a large selection of original artists and some comedians on the books. Look out for some classic and heavy rock on Thursdays Rock Night.
As the last remaining true free house in Stone, The Swan Inn is a shining beacon for real ale lovers across the nation, many of whom book a week’s holiday in July to fully enjoy our annual Beer Festival.
