I’m always surprised by just how small this pub is when I come in here.

A quick pint in passing. The usual crowd of smart suits and well-filled wallets on the pavement outside.

The pub is found in City, Central London, EC3V 1LY.

The Swan has been present since at least 1866 and was rebuilt in its present form in 1898. Very much a market pub through its history, although it is today frequented more by those who play the financial markets than those who trade or shop at adjacent Leadenhall Market. There is a very small, stand-up, ground floor bar and a more spacious first floor bar (formerly called the ‘Sherry Bar’).

We have visited this pub twice, seen 6 different beers and tried 2 of them.
