Lovely ambience with fantastic view over the river. Excellent range of choice. Plaice was beautiful. Extremely helpful and attentive service. Not cheap, but good value for such a pleasant experience

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.

In celebration of Shakespeare 400 and Emma Rice’s staging of A Midsummer Night’s Dream at The Globe Theatre, Swan has launched A Midsummer Night’s Dream afternoon tea. Available daily, the tea includes a collection of sweet and savoury treats, many of which are inspired by the characters and foods from the play. A savoury take on afternoon tea is also offered, in the form of the specially designed 'Gentleman’s Tea'.

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.
