The White Swan is a homely pub and dining room on Fetter Lane, close to Chancery Lane underground station. Comprised of a ground floor main room, an intimate mezzanine and a first floor dining room, this is a chic venue offering a lovely spread of food and drink.

Take one look at the menu and you'll realise they're pretty serious about their food here. Mouth-watering options like Cumbrian veal, pan-fried duck breast and sautéed monkfish with glazed Old Spot pork belly are on the agenda for lunch or dinner.

There's an array of European wines, draught beers and cocktails on hand too if you're just looking for some liquid refreshment.

Hire packages are extensive; hire the mezzanine for a smaller standing gathering of up to 20, host an impressive sit-down meal for up to 52 in the dining room or go all out and book the whole venue out if there's something really special on the cards.

This venue serves British, Pub Food, Gastro and Fine Dining food.

A word from the chef:
The White Swan's varied and interesting menu gives you the chance to try something new. The Seared 55 day aged Shorthorn beef would be a good place to start, before making your way on to some Peterhead cod, clams, leeks, sea shore vegetables and finishing with Pistachio artic roll, marinated peaches, raspberries. Bon appétit!

The White Swan Review - London Pub and Restaurant Review

The White Swan Review - London Pub and Restaurant Review

The gastropub is a concept that could only have originated in Britain: instead of chucking away failing pubs across the country and replacing them with something radically different, let’s utilise what we have and make it so much better. And...

We had a wonderful night having hired the White Swan for a joint 40th. The service was outstanding- coats collected from people as they arrived, glasses topped up, empties cleared promptly, all arrangements checked and tweaked when needed. Food was tasty. Lovely ambience. I would highly recommend. Thank you to the whole team who made our night special. visited The White Swan on 25 Mar 2017

Superb Venue with excellent service of food and drink. Food was an amazing quality and perfect quantity for the size of the group. Very friendly and helpful staff. Only problem was not being able to play own music. visited The White Swan on 03 Feb 2017

We held our party last night at The Swan and it was great. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming right from the initial booking of the venue to the finish. Food was delicious and went down well with my colleagues. Ellie was brilliant, really friendly and happy to answer all my questions. The bar staff were really friendly and knowledgeable too about whiskies and were on hand if we needed anything. Highly recommend The White Swan and will definitely go back. visited The White Swan on 25 Jan 2017

We all thoroughly enjoyed our team Christmas lunch at the White Swan, the food was excellent and the service was first class - thank you for a lovely dining experience. visited The White Swan on 21 Dec 2016

The food was good, and for three courses that part of the meal seemed reasonable value. By contrast the wine seemed rather expensive, with the cheapest bottle at £30. The service was good, and apart from the slightly dated decor in the White Swan it was a pleasant place for a work Christmas lunch. The restaurant made an effort to accommodate our vegan colleague, however, unfortunately the dessert option wasn't vegan so she couldn't eat that. visited The White Swan on 21 Dec 2016

Arrival was good, served our prosecco very promptly and all in the party agreed it was very nice! Food came quickly although there was a rather long wait between courses and I had to prompt for both the main and desserts. The food was excellent, as was the wine. On the hole very much enjoyed it and would certainly recommended The White Swan! visited The White Swan on 15 Dec 2016

We had a great drinks party at the White Swan. The mezzanine area was perfect for a small group of 15-20 people (though a little warm!). Thanks team! visited The White Swan on 01 Dec 2016

Really enjoyed the experience and the staff were great. It was very interesting to note that the large majority of the diners were not vegetarians and perhaps you should consider more of these non meat nights (I'm was one of those meat eaters at the event)! Compared to my visit to Vanilla Black earlier in the week I much more enjoyed the food at Live Life on the Veg. The only issue, the petit fours - these were very poor and we, like most diners, left them on the table. visited The White Swan on 21 Oct 2016

We had the perfect wedding reception at the White Swan last Saturday. The food was incredible, the service was brilliant and all the staff were helpful and extremely professional. We had an amazing time. I would highly recommend the White Swan.

I recently hosted an Hen Party/Bridal Shower at The White Swan and it was the perfect event. The kitchen accommodated my food requests, including serving an afternoon tea for 40 hens even though it's not on their normal menu! We had champagne, afternoon tea and games on in the first floor dining room, which looked beautiful. The front of house team made sure that everyone was really well looked after and the food was delicious. Followed by an evening party in the pub downstairs, with music and dancing, trays of shots and entertainment! I couldn't have asked for more from the a venue. I wouldn't hesitate to book again in the future!

Great food and service, highly recommended, lunch times can be busy but strongly would suggest booking a table if you can. The evenings are generally good for a few pints.

Went here for an after work event and had an amazing time. We had a small area booked and Adam looked after our group throughout the night. The mini burgers were so yummy!
