Serving simple, delicious and seasonal dishes, reserve your table now and look forward to fabulous food with one of London's most stunning views. 

The Swan Bar is open daily with an all-day menu that features snacks, salads and classic British dishes alongside local artisan gins, interesting wines, craft beers and seasonal cocktails. At the weekends you can also enjoy a hearty brunch. 

Meanwhile, the second floor Swan restaurant is open Monday-Sunday with a new autumnal a la carte menu and a theatrical 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' themed afternoon tea, which is served on bespoke crockery and takes inspiration from Shakespeare's great romantic comedy. On Sundays, an excellent Sunday Roast with all the trimmings is served, alongside naughty puddings. 

With two private dining rooms and two private event spaces, Swan at the Globe is also the perfect venue for private and corporate events including birthday dinners and anniversary celebrations, meetings, parties, cocktail and canape receptions, gala dinners and charitable fundraisers. They are also fully licensed for weddings.
