user reviews of the Famous Swan of Lee, Lee

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

The newest incarnation of this pub is The New Rambles, or perhaps just Rambles. It has been renovated nicely (except for the toilets). It has only just opened.
Went in there on Friday night (DJ night) and there were only a few customers. Less than 5. I really hope it picks up and stays open, because it's a nice place, in a good location (for me at least!). I can't comment on the beer because I had wine, but the wine list was good and reasonable price.
They have big TV screens and football was on, but the volume was off and they were playing relaxing background music.
The staff was nice and friendly.
My low rating is just based on how quiet is was, therefore it didn't have much of an atmosphere. Oh and the toilets aren't nice.

Closed a few months ago. Another rubbish lee High Road pub. Good riddance.

This was shut for around 6 months and has now reopened in early March 2012.
The previous landlord said it would never make any money and he was right.
I went in there 2 weeks ago and its still a dump. There was one bloke in there on a Saturday night and the atmosphere is dull.
Should be closed and demolished to be honest.

This is a very basic boozer with a standard draught selection and Oranjeboom available. There is a pool table and a dartboard in the bar area and I also spotted another pool table in the back room that looked like it had been done up for some kind of party.

I thought that the governor was nice enough as were the locals who were glued to the racing on Sky during my weekday afternoon visit.

I wouldn’t go out of my way to drink here again, but I feel that the rather low rating is a little harsh.

Unfortunately has been recussitated. I guess you could look on the bright side and say that it sucks in the Chavs and keeps them out of the few other reasonable pubs in the area.

Re-opens this week. Seems they closed it down for a week or two to tackle a rodent infestation. Don't think I'll be rushing in there.

Didn't realise any pubs like this still existed. And that's not a bad thing, either!

Cheap, honest, good jukebox, good beer. It's doing the simple things well that makes this pub a cut above the rest nearby.

Im good mates with the owner, this pubs top draw... takes ya back to the old days with everybody avin a good old sing song on a friday night, whilst people get up on the popular karaoke, live entertainment every weekend, football on the tv, showing all the top games, friendly bar staff, pool tables, nice bit of space so you can stand and ave a chat with your mates... a nice cold pint, and if ya on the pull, definately the best pub for pulling birds in leegreen. Well worth a friday night out just to test the water.... quality atmosphere, only thing is though its full of leegreen locals, so dont come in there givin it large or you might end up gettin knocked on a penny !!! so behave and enjoy it people !!
