Now it's summer it's time to kick back and make the most of those long lazy days and the sunshine.
While the sun's out and the breeze is balmy, there's no better place to spend it than in a glorious pub garden enjoying a perfect pint or a pitcher of Pimm's.
But where to go if you fancy getting out of town or simply want take in something new this season? Make a bee-line for The Swan in Salford where you can raise a glass to the sunny season right now, and do it in style.
The pub's got one of the most beautiful gardens for miles around and at the moment it's looking its sunniest best, with plenty of spots to sit and soak up some rays or linger in the shade.
There are comfy sofas to sink into and fairy lights to light up the summer sky at night.
Settle in and peruse the new summer menu while you ponder what to drink. The pub's got an all-new list of sharing cocktails which come in refreshing 1.6 litre pitchers - the ideal way to settle into a lazy afternoon in the garden.
There's Elderflower Fizz, combining St-Germain elderflower liqueur, strawberries and Prosecco for an English seasonal winner; Reyka Berry Collins mixing Reyka vodka with Chambord, berries and soda for a slightly sweet summer cooler, and of course classic Pimm's.
As well as an all-new, all-day menu for summer that's packed with the season's produce.
Ready to give you a warm welcome whenever you visit is The Swan's new manager, Alex Callinan, a familiar face already from when she was number two at the pub.
After a stint at sister pub The Black Horse in Woburn, Alex has stepped up to be number one and already has her feet firmly under the table, making sure everyone has a good time.
The Swan has some special events planned for the summer including a Wimbledon Finals Party on Sunday (July 16) when you can bask in the sunshine and enjoy the excitement of another grand slam men's final and some fantastic British fare.
Sip on Hattingley Valley’s English Fizz or a glass or two of Pimm's and eat your fill of fresh strawberries and cream.
