All-day café bar near Tate Modern

A short stroll from the hustle and bustle of Borough Market, and an even shorter one from the Tate Modern art gallery, Swan’s bar is at the cultural heart of Bankside. And for theatre-goers looking for a pre-show tipple or snack, our bar at the Globe is the obvious choice.

Huge windows offer spectacular views of the Thames and St Paul’s Cathedral, and you will be assured of a warm welcome, a heady drinks menu and crowd-pleasing British bar food.

Classic British dishes, small plates and puddings

Food is our passion, all day, every day, and our informal café bar menu is centred around traditional British classics, updated. Tuck into Curious Brew battered fish and chips or beetroot burgers with smashed avocado. Snack on small plates of portobello mushroom croquettes, Welsh rarebit and Scotch eggs. Our puddings are indulgent and moreish, and perfect for sharing with someone special and the ideal accompaniment to a glass or two of wine.
