Set over 2 floors, Swan is located at the iconic Shakespeare’s Globe with stunning views of the Thames and St Paul’s. Open all day, this beautiful bar and restaurant serves hearty, modern British food alongside afternoon tea.

Served throughout the day, the Swan menu showcases locally sourced British produce and changes seasonally. 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.

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.

    I have been here for an office Christmas meal and now with family for a celebratory meal. This is a lovely restaurant with fantastic views of the London skyline. Wait staff are attentive and friendly and the food is good - portions initially look on the small side, but they are actually just the right size for you to eat without feeling stuffed and uncomfortable. We ordered a Beef Wellington which was more well done than medium/medium well but it still tasted very good. We were only given a wine list, I'm sure cocktails are also available, but a full drinks menu was not supplied at the table as a matter of course. All in all a great dining experience, I hope to be back again.

    A wonderful afternoon tea experience. We were sat by a window as requested , the setting couldn't have been better looking onto the Thames and St.Pauls. The staff were polite and friendly and we were not rushed in anyway. There was loads to eat; interesting flavours too...we came away with our scones as we were so full. A great end to the day for our 40 year college reunion. Thank you.

    Great location, lots of tables in the windows for great views, lovely menu, standard price for this location and quality.
    Only one quibble-adding discretionary 12.5% tip to the card reader without asking - that makes it compulsory not discretionary!!

    Absolutely beautiful Midsummer Nights Dream afternoon tea! The best afternoon tea I have had in London.

    The food was delicious and the portions were huge.

    The setting was lovely and the staff could not have been more attentive- particular thanks go to the Irish waiter.

    Cannot recommend highly enough.

    Despite pushing our reservation back a half hour we arrived a further 15 min late. They seated us, thankfully, but was told we had only an hour to eat before they needed that table to be free. Whilst the staff was pleasant enough, there were certainly bitchy undertones and glares from the management. We ate as quickly as possible and enjoyed the food. The children's ice cream was horribly effected by freezer burn, but we didn't complain as we were on eggshells as it was! However,our server spent an awfully long amount of time chatting away with his fellow staff members and we were not asked if our meal was suitable not thanked when we left completely on time. Moral of the story? Don't dare to be late to your reservation!! Great food but very average staff attitude.
