Our hotel was in Bayswater so The Swan was very convenient. The food was very good and the service attentive. Good value for the price.

I visited this pub several times as I was visiting London and staying nearby. Excellent food and atmosphere, but on two occasions I sat in the upstairs bar (inside not on the balcony) and saw mice running around the tables - this was also witnessed by the barmaid who said she had been shocked at first but had become used to them! On the second and last occasion I sat upstairs for a meal it was not only the mice running around but I was attacked by fleas which bit my ankles considerably. This pub needs cleansing.

We enjoyed dinner and a beer on the top deck. Although overlooking a busy Bayswater Street, the Hyde park gate is in sight too. Bartender was very friendly and helpful with beer selection. The food was authentic, tasty and hearty after a long day of exhausting sightseeing.

One of the best pubs in town? Possibly.

ALWAYS great atmosphere, with a nice crowd mix between close-by offices and hotels workers plus tourists staying close to it, passing by or visiting Hyde Park.

Super friendly staff and great food (if you like burguers, do yourself a favor and ask for the mighty-good "The Gov’nor Burger").

A favorite for life.

During my London trip I visited The Swan a few times, lovely place, nice people, friendly staff. Fish and chips is good, the salads are pricey for what you get. Overall, it was a very nice experience.
They have a big terrace in front, opposite Hyde Park. A balcony/terrace upstairs with view at the park.
