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.
