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.

    Overall it was great. Really enjoyed the tea and gentleman's platter. Burger, fish sanwich and ham & cheese were my favorites. I took my parents who alos loved all the food.

    The Midsummer Night's Dream afternoon tea was lovely, delicious and reasonably priced. I especially loved the Midsummer inspired china with illustrations of the characters and quotes from the play.
    However we've had to wait a long time to get our food - I'm assuming they only had to assemble pre-made sandwiches, scones and desserts, but we've had to wait over 30 minutes for that, and no one came to check in on us to reassure that the food is coming.
    We were sat by the window with a lovely view of the South Bank, but I didn't like the fact that the tables were placed really close to each other so I felt like we had little private space to enjoy the meal.

    Wonderful afternoon tea, with a lovely variety of savouries , warm scones and delicious dainty sweet treats all served up with a good selection of teas. There was service with a smile in a beautiful setting. I really like the refurbished restaurant which offers such a variety of seating arrangements.

    Our booking through the website had not been received. The reception manager kindly said that we would get a restaurant table within 30 minutes. We were eventually seated in the restaurant an hour after our booking. Our first course arrived 40 minutes later. Thereafter the Sundat lunch was delicious and well presented. At the end of the excellent meal we received a 25% discount in recognition of poor service. We maintained a positive outlook and eventually enjoyed a delicious time.

    A bit chaotic chips didn't arrive and one of the fish dishes was undercooked. Waitress did her best!

    We decided to go early and they were accommodating. We had a nice table by the window. The food was OK. Well presented but lacking as much flavor as we'd expect. Prices were fair although the wines tended to be rather expensive by the bottle.
