Dean Swift

Dean Swift

An estate agent might describe the Dean Swift as light, airy and bijou, which generally means small. But though it might not be London’s largest pub, there’s plenty here to attract the committed beer drinker. Beers on offer change regularly, but you might reasonably expect to find Dark Star, Windsor and Eton, The Kernel (whose brewery is a hop, skip and jump from here) – indeed, all of British brewing’s most interesting new faces. That, and the pub is situated in an area rich with London beer history: Courage was founded two minutes away.
