    Awesome Time!
    I had an absolute blast here. It’s a guaranteed fun time and cheap! I ended up losing my wallet, which was devastating at the time. However, it was quickly found by the owner without anything missing, who very kindly came in on her day off to get it back to me! Even if my wallet was permanently lost I would still keep coming back because it was such good fun!

    Highly recommend The Swan for a truly London experience!
    My wife and I recently stopped into The Swan on holiday in London. The pub is situated well, near Hyde Park and Oxford Street and close to our accommodation near Bayswater Station. We had breakfast, and are both with special needs, namely gluten-free and vegetarian. We really enjoyed our experience here! The pub is beautiful, staff is friendly, lovely decor, and fresh flowers, we could not have enjoyed it more. Highly recommend The Swan!

    Peace and quiet away from the city crowds. Great food and good beer…..
    We ended up eating at The Swan twice almost by accident. The first time we ate lunch after getting fed up of the crowds in the city. Walking back to our hotel from the Tube we passed this pub. We took a chance, went in and sat down. There’s a good choice of beers at the bar. The porter went down too well. We both chose steak from the lunch menu. Both were cooked well and came with chips, mushroom, and salad. Neither of us had anything to moan about. The next morning we’d already decided to have breakfast at The Swan as the breakfast we’d had the day before at our hotel didn’t even reach the level of average - it was bad. However, breakfast at The Swan was a different story, From the menu we both chose the full English. You get a real plate full of quality food. - bacon, sausage, beans, black pudding, grilled tomatoes, hash browns, mushrooms and your choice of eggs and toast. It was spot on. The guys working in the pub for both of our meals were very friendly and polite without being intrusive. This is a busy pub in what we thought is an area of small hotels and private houses/ flats. It’s a lovely place of peace and quiet away from the city crowds. We wouldn’t hesitate to tell anyone to pay a visit…….

    Loved this pub- food , service, and location
    We had dinner there during the week, and liked it enough to do the Sunday roast. Loved all the meals. The pork with crackling was terrific. Enjoy Hyde park across the street then have a nice supper. We did the park Sunday morning then roast. A great morning. Staff is very nice and the food was great. Book a table if you want to do the roast.

    Great pub need to focus on some of the little things more!
    Stayed at Corus, popped over for Sunday lunch and a pint. Lovely overall but Sunday lunch short on apple sauce and very mean with cracking! The pub is a little pricey but that’s London prices. Ideally located by Hyde Park.

    Historic roadhouse pub delivers tasty food and good service!
    The Swan delivers again! We discovered The Swan on our first time in London over 10 years ago. Now we find ourselves dining there every time we find ourselves in London since it is walkable from our hotel. On this trip, we enjoyed a tasty dinner on a quiet Monday evening on our first day out. Nice to know we can depend on good food and good service here!

Bouncers are thugs. Wind people up and drag them down alley. Beating then till they bleed. Someone stole my round and they did nothing.

Visually appealing food but the taste was a bit lackluster. I had the fish and chips of which I could eat maybe half. It was a tremendous and bit greasy portion. I was seated on a bench at a long table between 2 loud groups- my penance for dining alone on a business trip. Atmosphere overall was quite loud.
