This pub is a grade II listed building and the listing description is as follows: “Public House. 1901 by F Miller. Red brick and stone, slate roof. Free Jacobean style. Sited on the prominent angle with King Street. 4 storeys with attics. Ground storey of red and black granite. 3 storey oriel bay on angle. 4 unequal bays to ground storey, with chamfered angle under oriel. Mosaic-ornamented gables, and some cut brick. Interior with some surviving original features.”

The pub also has an interior recognised by CAMRA as being of local importance and it retains quite a few original features, including a flamboyant arcade, a fine staircase, stained glass windows and a moulded ceiling. The rear room is a gem with its wooden and marble fire surround and good quality wall paneling. Back in the main room, note also the Eric Ravilious prints in one corner, a nice touch from the more recent past.

The Swan features on the The Twelve Days of Christmas: Evening Crawl of Hammersmith, West Kensington and West Brompton on 12 December 2018.
