    Lovely afternoon tea at The Swan after a play at The Globe, excellent views of the Thames overlooking St Paul’s. Nice to have a choice of a Classsic or Gentleman’s afternoon tea which has more savoury items.

    We had an amazing experience eating a proper afternoon tea with a great view and fantastic service! The food and tea was delicious. We had our 1-year-old with us and the staff catered to our every need so we felt we didn’t disturb any other guests but still were able to enjoy ourselves fully. Way more than we could’ve ever asked for! Anyone looking for an afternoon tea in London should definitely choose The Swan!

    Well situated overlooking the river and St Paul’s, linked with Shakespeare’s Globe. Smart casual modern but modest with some elegance. Good attentive staff, timely service. Food was “fine” - not a very descriptive word but actually both of us thought that hit the mark. Portions are not big and set menu was obviously limited, but cooked well, good presentation and balance.However it lacked flavour or any hint of real taste. I put salt and pepper on mine which I never do. Hence “fine”
