Nestled next to Shakespeare's iconic Globe Theatre, Swan at The Globe offers sterling British cuisine and unsurpassed views. Set over two floors, enjoy stunning views of the Thames and St Paul’s.

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. Breakfast is served in the Swan Bar midweek and includes classics such as an Eggs Benedict, which was voted Top 10 in London by the Evening Standard

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.

    The food was delicious, and the service was pleasant, but a bit slow. We arrived at 3:00 for high tea and by 4:15, it was clear hat we should be done. The servers began preparing for dinner, and they were very loud and talkative. I wouldn't mind too much, but when you're paying over £100 for a high tea, part of what you are paying for is the ambiance. We began to feel very unwelcome as if we were infringing on the servers' private time.
    Also, the "bottomless" cup of tea was unimpressive because it tasted like hot water on the first refill of water. Fresh teabags would have been a real plus.

    Loved the view and service... I had Battered Haddock, lovely and my fellow diners said the Steak was gorgeous!!! It was my daughter 18th , we had complimentary drinks and a dessert that was by adding Happy 18th. Really lovely atmosphere especially as so close to the Globe... Thank you x

    We had a lovely Afternoon Tea at the Swan at The Globe. The location is lovely with fantastic views and the Service very attentive. The Afternoon Tea itself was pure delight, very good value for money with huge Scones and a lovely Christmas touch. I will definately recommend the Swan to all my friends.

    I booked a table for my husband and myself for 8pm on a Friday evening. We arrived 20 minutes early but the waitress was happy to seat us straight away. We were given a very nice table with a view of the river. Our meal was delicious, the wine was excellent and our waiter gave us just the right amount of attention. We would certainly recommend this restaurant to any of our friends and family.

    Beautiful elegant setting ... Attentive waiters. Floor manager could learn a little about customer service ... Tapping watch thus instructing his staff to hurry us along right in front of us perhaps not the most hospitable of behaviour.
