Nestled next to Shakespeare's iconic Globe Theatre, Swan at The Globe offers sterling British cuisine and unsurpassed views of London's skyline and the River Thames. Sink into a plush tan leather bench in the trendy dining room, where pretty vintage design is mixed with edgy industrial features.

Served throughout the day, The Swan menu offers a mix of refined British favourites and adventurous house recipes, including brunch, afternoon tea and one of the City's best Sunday roasts. Filled with hearty and wholesome flavours, enjoy favourites like roast pork belly with black pudding and mushroom sauce. A mouth-watering Sunday roast menu offers corn fed chicken with stuffing and bread sauce, and rump of beef with horseradish sauce. Alongside real ales and fine wines from The Swan London bar, heady Bard-inspired cocktail mixes are made using premium ingredients.

An irresistible draw for hungry theatregoers, Swan at The Globe South Bank offers a nostalgic afternoon tea. Served atop cutesy china, guests can sample fresh sandwiches with classic British fillings, dainty cakes and fine teas.

Offering glorious British eclecticism and perfectly complementing the theatrical buzz of the next-door Globe theatre, Swan at The Globe restaurant is a 10-minute walk from London Bridge Station.

    Wonderful afternoon tea and fabulous service. We were delayed by traffic and were half an hour late, but I found our table waiting for us just fine. The waiter was helpful in recommending the right amount of food, were very polite with our children and didn't rush us. The tea was delicious, best scones with clotted cream that I have ever had. Would recommend this to anyone looking for a lovely afternoon tea.

    Absolutely gorgeous .... Meet up with all school friends and we stayed at the Swan for 6 hours. Staff couldn't do enough for us and we didn't finish the lovely food there was so much of it.
