Swan Essex

26 Bank St

Swan Essex

The Swan is situated in the centre of Braintree on the Market Square so is in a very prominent position. Braintree itself is a market town with a population of 42,000 and the demographics especially in the local villages are good. Braintree has the nearby massive freeport shopping area and is also on the A120 which links direct to Stansted Airport just 30 minutes away. There is a multiplex cinema a bowling alley and various restaurants and shops within the freeport. Braintree has two main market areas that link throughout the town, which are run twice weekly, on a Wednesday and a Saturday.

They are based outside the town hall in market square, and also run along Bank Street and the High Street. The High Street is mainly a pedestrianised area, which allows only buses to commute through the town.

The stated ingoing figures are correct at point of advertising. Please be aware there may be additional costs.

About the Pub – Swan Essex

The Swan has a large central bar with seating areas all around, there are separated areas behind the main bar which one houses a pool table but may be more suitable for guests eating. There is a large patio garden and a commercial catering kitchen which was refurbished little over two years ago and is compliant. There is also council permission for two tables to the front of the pub which will help the pub promote daytime trade.


The pub trades as drinks led only though we believe there is a strong market for a daytime food offer considering the number of visitors to the town. There is entertainment at weekends and more locals led throughout the week. We are proposing a refurbishment for the Swan so the  business can move more to a premium level. We are looking for an operator that can maximize the potential here rather than how the pub currently trades.
