I love coming here at lunchtime whether it's to have a cool drink on a hot summer day on the green or sampling their great dishes for lunch. As its small you may have to book as it gets busy very quickly.

We ate here a few weeks ago on the spur of the moment and called ahead and fortunately they had a table available. When we arrived the pub was pretty full and we were shown to a table in the restaurant section of the pub. We had 3 courses and I have to say that all the food was excellent... More

Fantastic location and great food, but disappointed in other areas. As other people have mentioned, the toilets are terrible. My wife said the ladies was freezing, whilst the gents needs overhaul. Inside the pub is nice enough but we actually kept our coats on for quite a while; as it was chilly and the fire was lit, but nearly out.... More

We ate in here again recently and were very impressed with the food, the service was impeccable and the staff, as always, very friendly. My only bone of contension is the ladies toilets which need a complete overhawl and apparently the gents are the same :(

Last visited very many years ago and it hadn't changed one bit. Warm atmosphere with a log fire when we arrived at 8pm but later in the evening it went very, very cold with no radiators on and the fire wasn't attended to and eventually died. Two girls in our party of four were very cold towards the end of... More

Enjoyed a walk to the Swan on the Green yesterday and had a lovely Sunday roast - the best I've ever had at a restaurant. We sat next to the fire and my husband enjoyed their ale. The staff were very friendly and the prices were very reasonable considering how good the food was. Compliments to the chef!

I was given this pub / restaurant by a good friend and he remains so after a great lunch we all had. Lovely location in West Peckham and a must for the summer. Started with an excellent Smoked Pigeon and Pancetta tartlet which was heavenly with my daughter having the well cooked scallops. Mains were slow roasted Pheasant with bacon... More
