Had a Greek salad that didn't impress much but you wouldn't go here for the food but for the great atmosphere, nice staff and excellent live music. Has a true English pub vibe to it. The man singing had a wonderful voice and chose great songs for everyone to sing along too. Highly recommended pub!

Went here yesterday and the pub is cool place to have a few drinks and food. The service was of reasonable quality. I ordered the fish & chips which was very nice. Was highly impressed and the fish wasnt very oily.

We wanted something close to our hotel & The Swan was recommended to us.... It is a lovely, laid back pub. You find your own seat & order from the bar. The food was Super!!! Great chicken mushroom pie with wonderful fresh cooked seasonal vegetables. The fish & chips was true British fare!!! We will eat here again!!!! Charming pub!!!

Fabulous little pub, I reserved an area in here for 27 of us on a Friday night and the staff were amazing, very reasonable for London and the drinks not too badly priced either, £12-£15 for a bottle of wine aint that bad

After a flight from Dublin and a long walk around Hyde Park, we were ready for dinner and spotted The Swan. I had no trouble ordering the fish and chips, and this was excellent. But the order takers seemed perplexed by my wife's request for a gluten-free menu. Eventually, after a long errand to the kitchen, one of the servers... More
