Went to this Pub on a Sunday night and we are so bummed we didn't get there sooner! We went for dinner, the food was good and the staff friendly. The beer was served traditionally and they had a great variety. The wine was a bit steep, ~8 pounds for a 250mL glass. But coming from Italy were 8 Euro... More

This pub has the enormous benefit of attracting those fresh from a Marble Arch visit. It has barely any competition given The Tyburn has now shut. Historically, it has a lot to offer, added to by a great dining area but the staff are insufficiently well versed to do the place justice. Take note and don't depend on the captive... More

Good fish and chips! Near Hyde Park and Lancaster Gate tube. Very good service and a nice terrace near the Corus hotel.

Working in London, The Swan was perfectly placed between the job and our hotel. Great service, decent beer and excellent food, which must be why it's always busy! Oliver's Island Golden Ale is the business.

Lovely pub with large bar area and spacious outdoor seating with TV screens showing sports inside and out. Good burgers as well as a large selection of drinks on tap and bottled. Recommended.

Been here many times. Will definitely be back. Love the staff, the food, the feeling of liveliness you get when here and the location, just outside the park. Can easily be reached via Lancaster Gate tube station. Will be back again!

Visited for a beer or four with friends. Sat outside on a busy Saturday afternoon. The London Pride was excellently kept and was like nectar. The food, in particular the fish and chips was beautifully cooked and we'll presented. The staff are excellent here and the tables were kept clear of used glasses etc. In all a very well run...

We were looking for somewhere to eat for our last night in Bayswater and wanted simple good honest pub food. The Swan fitted the bill. As a Fuller's pub there was a good range of real ale's available. However, we shared a bottle of New Zealand Marlborough with our meal, going for the pie options, I having the veggie meal.... More
