Swan, Shakespeare’s Globe Ratings and Reviews
Booked a table before going to theatre. Got in early so had a drink in the bar...welcomed by a pleasant person, had coffee then a glass of wine before our table was ready. Served by very efficient staff who had been well trained . The pre theatre menu had enough choice, and was well cooked and served. The view is second to none. All in all would definitely recommend the Swan.
We have eaten at The Swan many times and the first time I visited was for my birthday celebration two years ago when we had the private room. Since then our friends have eaten there and taken their friends there. My husband uses it for business and its just the perfect atmosphere with great staff. The food is always of good quality and taste and never fails to impress. I took my brother and his wife there who were visiting from Germany and they had the Sunday lunch which was very impressive, they could not finish it. We had the quail and cod main courses which were very tasty. We had a lovely round table by the window overlooking St Pauls which never fails to captivate us and as the sun went down and the evening lights lit up the water it was magical. Always on our to go list and will remain so. Cannot recommend this restaurant and location highly enough.
As we were going to The Sam Wanamaker theatre this was the ideal venue for a pre theatre dinner.The food we had was excellent but there was not much choice for the main course.
The service was good and waiters were pleasant.We would definitely go there again if we were going to the theatre there.
Booked the River View menu for myself and three friends after we had been to an exhibition at the Tate Modern.
We arrived a bit early but the staff were very accommodating and found us a table straight away. All three courses were delicious and well presented, the glass of English sparkling wine included in the price was also very nice.
Nothing to fault; great location, good service and really tasty food which was excellent value at £24.50 for three courses and a glass of fizz. Recommended!
We spent a wonderful New Year's Eve together with our friends at the Swan. We were a party of eight and had a separate room. The seating was just perfect. We had a stunning view over the Thames. The staff was lovely and very kind, the food was delicious. Very recommendable!
Had the pre theatre menu. Food was excellent and well presented by exceptionally pleasant staff. Great view over the river to St Paul's. Service was paced just right for pre theatre, neither too fast or too slow. Made visit to the Globe much more relaxing. Will definitely go again.
Went for a pre-Christmas dinner with the family and really enjoyed the whole experience. After the friendly welcome we were show to our table in the restaurant with lovely river views. Our waiter was great and made really good recommendations and was always there when needed. A good menu with lots of choice and the food was excellent and everyone at the table was happy. Prices were reasonable too. All round very happy with our choice and I will certainly return when I am in the area.
Afternoon tea for our party of 6 was a huge success. Half the party did the midsummers tea and the others had the gentlemens tea. The table was packed with tea and treats. It was delicious and I will definitely be recommending this to others. The view was amazing and the ambiance was very nice. Price was very reasonable too.
We had booked a table for the pre-theatre menu and from our arrival the welcome and service was second to none.
We were sat by the window with a beautiful view of the river and St Paul’s. The Restaurant had the perfect atmosphere - buzzing, but not too loud that you couldn’t hear yourself think.
We had the vegetarian and the fish options and the food was cooked to perfection, exquisitely presented and delighted the tastebuds.
I would certainly recommend The Swan to anyone and hope to return there soon.
We really enjoyed our lunch and it was hard to choose from the delicious sounding menu. The red mullet starter was well cooked, and the salt marsh lamb had exceptional flavour. We ate upstairs in the restaurant, which has a lovely atmosphere and a beautiful view of the river, but is acoustically challenging when full of animated diners. Service was well-timed and friendly. As we have come to expect from the Swan/Globe venues, every detail is perfectly orchestrated.
We came for the afternoon tea, I had the Gentleman's Afternoon Tea which was absolutely massive! It had a good selection of salmon pate, beef slider, fish finger sandwich, croque monsieur and a cheese scone. The quality was impeccable and the overall service was good.
I would definitely come back here again!
We had been in there for a birthday celebration. We had been welcomed warmly by the receptionist whom gave us a lovely table by the window. The food was really good and the set menu was really good and tasty. The service was a bit slow in certain moment but overall good. We will come back
