This is a lovely locals pub, with good beer, cider, wine etc and very nice food. It’s dog friendly in the bar, but not allowed in eating area, so if want to eat with dog get there early or reserve a table.

Tucked away from the seafront is the Swan, great little pub with character, good selection of Young's ales which remind me of growing up in Wandsworth and a friendly welcome. Good simple offer for lunches and evening meals especially the crab sandwiches. Overall recommended.
