Found along Covent Garden's narrow New Row, The White Swan boasts a historic bar on the ground floor, and an upstairs dining room serving hearty dishes. Along with all the British pub favourites, the White Swan is a specialist in fish dishes, so go for the tempura battered soft shell crab or the seafood thermidor for something a little different to the typical pub grub.

Ate here last night - my significant other and I both ordered pies - her's was chicken & chorizo and mine was beef and mushroom. They were both excellent and I would actually recommend coming back here again.
My only complaint is that the service is a bit slow - it took a while to be waited upon. But again, the food was excellent so that overcame the other issue.
