A good atmosphere in this pub, although the staff are not the cheery typical country pub staff. Friendly enough although not overly interactive. Simple english style pub meals, a little pricey for the quality though. Reasonable range of drinks, only one cider on tap and limited beers on tap. Probably a nice place for a cheeky pint in summer whilst... More

While visiting London we walked thru Hyde park and came into Bays water rd. Being near lunchtime we espied the Swan thru the roadworks and thought we'd give it try. What please the surprise awaited us when we entered. No noisy music or flashing lights just a nice atmosphere and congenial staff. There were six in our group and we... More

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...
