Also listed as being at Chantry Croft.
Closed 1982; it was a Greene King pub at the time of its closure.
Now converted into flats.
It is well documented**** that the 1667 "Great Fire of Haverhill", which destroyed much of the town, started in an inn called the Swan. It is thought the 17th century building was on a different site, near or on the High Street.
In Mar 1981 edition of Last Orders*** it was reported that Graham Attwater and his wife Christine were here offering 3 GK beers on handpump. A "basic no frills pub."
In Apr/May 1982 edition of Last Orders*** it was reported that this GK pub was closed until further notice with no evidence of renovations having started to the White Swan as yet.
