Desert Island Jukebox!

Came in on a chilly January evening. The place was empty but we didn’t mind as we had the bar to ourselves! Drinks on draft and bottled were great and the bar staff were lovely.


Great Pub

I stumbled upon the pub via their chalk board sign. Once inside I was served straight away by friendly bar staff. The choice of beers was good and it seemed I was there just before the lunch time rush.




Great place to debrief after the Globe

We visited the Globe and watch a productions. The White Swan offered us good beer and a great patio from which to people watch.
