The Black Swan
Ranked #69 of 154 Nightlife in Bangkok
Attraction details
Reviewed 2 January 2014

We visited this pub a couple of times during a recent trip and found it to be welcoming enough, cool and with a decent selection of drinks.

The service was reasonable and, although we didn't eat here, the food we saw looked very appetizing.

It was a welcome change from the "mall" style of bars found in Bangkok.

Hey it is a pub! Happened into the Black Swan while visiting Bangkok and they had the Formula One race on and offered a number of imported beers. The crowd was predominantly impats or tourists although some appeared to be entertaining the local female talent.

Service was not great but was not terrible. Had a nice chat with another English speaking traveler and that is always a nice break.

Did not eat so can only testify that the beer was cold.

Went there late in the night for a last drink as a nightcap and wind down from a massage.
Upon entering the pub, i suddenly found myself transported to jolly ol England.
The decor of the pub was authentically true right down to the fireplace. If you miss the news back home, daily newspapers are available, and I'm not referring to the Bangkok daily. I had a good read of the days' Sun and Sunday Times, printed off the website.
On tap, Guinness, Kilkenney and Heinekken and Tiger was available on tap. The bar also had an extensive choice of whiskeys.
Next time, I'll try the food.

A diamond in the rough. Great food, large portions and great value. Proper pub grub with all the extras. Also do a mean cup of scald (tea)

I had visited Terminal 21 and was wandering around the various tailor shops opposite and walked into this bar late afternoon. The staff were not attentive and the place seemed to be a haunt of local lost causes... I did not drink and ordered a diet coke and tried the sausage meal and was underwhelmed.. maybe I was not in the mood to enjoy a place like this - although it looked inviting from outside.
