Description: The Old Swan in Kensington is a historic London Pub. We've played host to illustrious personage such as Christopher Wren, William III and Queen Mary. It has been a public house since records began. We're proud to say our menu is packed with Great British pub food classics, including iconic dishes like our hand-battered fish and chips, pie and mash and succulent burgers. Our drinks include a great range of real ales and an extensive wine list. Our cask ales range has some of the best in British beers, including IPA & Abbot. We also have Sky and BT Sport. The team at the Old Swan look forward to welcoming you soon at this fantastic traditional pub in Kensington.

Nothing better than visit a pub with traditional English food and cold beer in this hot weather. We had some lovely sharing platters, which was absolutely delicious and we drawn it down with perfectly cooled beer. Great time over here.

Hey martuska! Thank you for your kind words and this wonderful review!
Not much can beat the combination of our sharing platters and our beers even on a rainy day but next time try the dirty fries as well , will not disappoint ;)

All the best and we can't wait to see you again, have a great day.

The Old Swan team :)

Delicious Steak & Ale Pie with triple-cooked chips and seasoned greens. The size of the pie surprised me as I believed it was going to be small and it was much larger than I thought. Excellent choice. Server was attentive and very helpful. Inexpensive too !! I will certainly return.
