I took four friends to celebrate one of their birthdays. None of us had been there before. We found the whole experience a delight. We had their Midsummer Nights Dream Afternoon Tea with a Love Potion Coctail. Everything was wonderful. Restaurant ambience, views staff, I could not fault it.

A theatre menu is served prior to all performances at The Globe, whilst the set Sunday menu includes a range of traditional roasts alongside modern British options. Afternoon tea is served daily from 12-3.

The Swan Bar offers all-day dining, from breakfasts, through to lunch, evening meals and cocktails. Focusing on homemade British classics, the menu features fish and chips, sharing boards and indulgent puddings, and is joined by a drinks list which includes local ales, interesting wines and unique cocktails.

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

    Excellent location, beautiful view, great service. The chicken sandwich roll and the scones were a little dry though.

    Very nice experience, good food and very well served. Beutiful view of Thames River.

  • (((** 17 May 2017 by CV from London

    On arrival the greeting was fairly brusque especially when i enquired if we could delay and come back in half an hour we were informed that thats fine as long as we only wanted to have the Tea experience for 1.5 hrs rather than the designated 2 hrs ...

    We had booked the afternoon tea with free flowing prosecco and to be honest it wasn't very "free flowing" ...clearly they plan for maximum of a bottle between 2 people rather than as much as you "require" but the service from the waiter was certainly cheerful and hard to fault ... it was made however clear when it was time to leave after the maximum 2 hour period had passed ... so in essence very nice apart from the feeling you were on a conveyor belt (even thought the restaurant was almost empty when we had to leave )

    Our afternoon tea was excellent. The staff were friendly and helpful, the food, especially the savoury items, was great, and the setting was brilliant with views over the Thames. There was a peaceful atmosphere and we never felt rushed.

    Lovely surroundings. The food was good traditional British fare.

  • ((((( 11 April 2017 by Jill Jones from Beckenham

    The afternoon tea was excellent. Savouries were a really nice change from just sandwiches. The scones were a bit too large but still tasty
    The cakes and little dessert were amazing. We had a love potion cocktail which was lovely. Nice view of the river. Service very good.
