We visited this lovely pub for dinner with friends. It was busy with locals and visitors. The bar staff were welcoming, as was the chap that took our food orders. The menu was varied, and reasonably priced, and our meals were delicious. Highly recommend this...More

This is a lovely locals pub, with good beer, cider, wine etc and very nice food. It’s dog friendly in the bar, but not allowed in eating area, so if want to eat with dog get there early or reserve a table.

Tucked away from the seafront is the Swan, great little pub with character, good selection of Young's ales which remind me of growing up in Wandsworth and a friendly welcome. Good simple offer for lunches and evening meals especially the crab sandwiches. Overall recommended.
