The White Swan is a traditional sandstone pub situated on the village square in Pleasley. The village has historic links to industry with ironworks, the Pleasley Colliery and an old water mill all situated nearby. The pub itself is in a central location close to the River Meden and its weir. The village has one other pub and amenities such as a post office, pharmacy, take away and village shop. Pleasley is situated conveniently close to the A617 which links Mansfield to Chesterfield, less than four miles from Mansfield and ten miles from Chesterfield, and is on the main bus link between the two towns. The village has a population of about 2,200 and the nearby market town of Mansfield has 100,000.
On entering the pub through the main door, you are greeted with a centralised horseshoe bar. On the left is a good sized games area with pool table and some seating. On the right of the bar is a large lounge with a mixture of fixed and loose seating. Both areas have their own toilets. There is also a good sized function room on the first floor which is accessed from the lobby at the back of the pub. There is a small gallery food preparation area towards the rear of the pub serving hot food. Externally there is a small grassed area and drinking patio which is situated at the rear of the pub including a smoking shelter, and there is also parking for up to five cars on the right of the pub.
The White Swan focuses on offering a great variety of ales, draught products, wines and spirts and benefits from a good group of local customers throughout the week. The pub does offer a small hot food menu where there is an opportunity to increase trade by expanding the food offer. Both pool and darts teams play from the pub and televised sport is also shown. The White Swan would suit a licensee with flair to promote good retail standards, develop the food offer and embrace the televised sport ensuring all the popular football, rugby and cricket matches are shown.
The domestic accommodation consists of three bedrooms, a lounge, kitchen and bathroom all in good order which are accessed through a private entrance inside the pub.
