The Swan

The Swan

It's difficult to not wander into The Swan. It looks out onto both iterations of Hammersmith's tube stations, with big welcoming doors to lure you inside.

This distinctive pub was built as a hotel in the final days of the Victorian era, but has a history stretching back much further as a coaching inn on the road west out of London.

There's no shortage of space inside, with a half dozen sections and small rooms, plus a first-floor dining room. With its numerous mosaics and moulded paneling, there's a real arts-and-crafts feel about the interior, which would have appealed to nearby resident William Morris, had he lived to see the pub's reopening in its current, grand form.

This is a Nicholson's pub, which increasingly means a handsome range of beers and a comprehensive range of pub classics on the food menu. A good, solid, reliable pub, right in the centre of Hammersmith, though a bit too handy for the stations.
