Cockermouth landlord Joe spreads his wings to take on the Swan

A well-known Cockermouth landlord is turning back the clock with his new pub.

TWO PUBS: Cockermouth landlord Joe Fagan, who runs the Bush Inn on Main Street, will also run the Swan Inn on Kirkgate

Joe Fagan, 61, who already runs the town’s Bush Inn on Main Street, is also taking on the Swan on Kirkgate – which he plans to run like a tradtional 1950s inn.

He said: “There will be no jukeboxes or gaming machines. I am going back to basics.

“I like to keep things simple and all I want to do at the Swan is to make it a good honest local.

“It is a cracking pub with the right products in the right part of town.

“It simply needs a bit of tender loving care.

“With the range of locally brewed Jennings beer, I’m confident I can bring the Swan successfully into the 21st century.

“Far too many pubs have closed in this town and by bringing my style of simplicity to the Swan I think I’ve got another success story.”

Mr Fagan took over the Bush in 2009 and this year is a finalist in the Marstons community pub of the year competition.
