Closure date not known, but the pub was listed in the 1935-1953 Eye licensing records and didn't appear in the 1962-67 records, so must have closed in the interim.
It reportedly stood "next to the Queen's Head". The 1886 OS map shows an unidentified pub almost directly opposite it; we're assuming this was the Black Swan for now.
