See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

This welcoming local catering for all ages was formerly called the Railway as it is located opposite the site of the former Callington railway station. The present name is a corruption of 'swinging tree', a type of bar used with horses to pull carts etc, and examples hang from the ceiling. Food obviously plays an important part in the pub's business - most of the tables are pre-laid up for meals - but there are plenty of bar stools as well for drinkers. The single, nicely decorated U-shaped bar room lends itself as lounge, eating area and games room; there is a pool table and TV set, and the locals play euchre and darts; the pub also supports a cricket team. There is also an adjoining conservatory in which to eat and drink, and a pleasant garden with covered outdoor patio for smokers. Live entertainment appears at weekends; at other times there is piped musak which some might find a little intrusive. There is disabled access, but no disabled facilities are available.
