SquareMeal Review of The Dean Swift

From a ground floor boozing area complete with big screen sports and board games to an upstairs dining room, this pub near Tower Bridge takes every aspect of its food and drink seriously. Around 10 beers can be found on tap at anytime, including many a London-brewed or lesser-seen ale, and a short but sound wine list isn’t too shabby either. Sunday roasts are the pinnacle of its food offering, with hefty slabs of carefully sourced beef, lamb, pork and chicken slow-cooked each week and served with generous sides. At other times, steaks, burgers and fish and chips form the bulk of a short menu of pub classics. This is a gastro establishment that’s kept firmly in touch with its pub roots.
