A Sound pub, with half a dozen London beers I've never encountered, and a decent draught cider (Aspall's). Admittedly just sampled the small plate chicken wings (very tasty), but saw a lot of the speciality-of-the-house fish and chips go out, and very good they looked. Staff prompt and friendly, decor and ambience very pleasant.

Ordered some burgers that took over half an hour to arrive. They vere almost decent. Not bad but not good either. Quite taste less. Bad service, totally inattentive. The staff just didn´t cared about any customers. Go there for a pint but not to have a meal.

A flying visit staying at the Thistle Bloomsbury and this pub is just around the corner. The food is hearty and filling with portions which will not let you down. The selection of pies caught my eye and I proceeded to take on the chicken and mushroom monster. As far as pub food goes it was good quality and delivered... More

We were heading towards Euston station and found this pub down a small alley. Very pleasant bar staff and a great menu. I think this is part of the Greene King franchise which is very nice. Food was fabulous and the wagyu beef burger amazing.

The Swan has a lot going for it. Nice pub grub menu, a good range of beers, Malt Whiskies, Gins and Rums and very good service. Has a mix of tourists and locals and reasonable prices.

We went in to try to get a meal at dinner time. Very crowded at the bar. Dining tables at the back, but very uninviting. Small tables, uncomfortable chairs, very noisy and not at all pleasant. We chose to go elsewhere.

Two seniors, staying at the Bloomsbury Thistle hotel on Southampton Row by chance took the small alley way beside the hotel, and found this delightful warm and welcoming pub. A very courteous welcome, and not only a very good explanation of the cask beers on offer, but the invitation to sample as well. Also on offer were a range of... More
