ummm its a chef and brewer, so if you've ever been in one, you been in them all. dull as dishwater. plus, boil in a bag food and the blandest of beer selections. but its clean and the building is quite pretty, and next to a canal, but also next to the main road into uxbridge, so its pretty in one direction, horrid in the other. service has always been very good, and due to the proximity of office blocks opposite, its rarely empty and void of atmosphere.

review in one word: "meh."

I visited this pub the weekend before last, after a walk along the canal. They claimed to have four ales on, but in fact upon entering the pub I immediately discovered that two were off; the remaining taps were serving unimaginative and hackneyed brands of bitter.

When I tried to order a lager from the drinkable end of the spectrum (Kronenbourg I seem to remember none of your quality Czech and Bavarian beers here) I was told that all other beers were off apart from Fosters. Wow. If you can actually legally describe your self as a pub when selling nothing but Fosters, then there is clearly something wrong with the Trade Descriptions Act.

Slightly more than half of the pub was decked out for diners, making it difficult to find a seat as so few tables remained available despite the pub not being full. Outside, despite the pleasant canalside location, the beer garden is bizarrely set back from the canal, and the space alongside it set aside for car parking instead. This is a quite remarkable own goal; using the lovely canalside space as a car park, and putting the beer garden at the back next to the main road. You really have to wonder which planet these people are on.

Many people will have their own feeling about geographical and spatial criteria, and consequently whether Uxbridge counts as being inside of London or not. If you decide the former, then the Swan and Bottle is a strong contender for the title of the worst pub in London.

Does this mean you will finally now stay away? Because by the sounds of it you just love to complain? 'never will I go back' Maybe next time you be but more active and walk into town. The place is best avoided by constant complainers! I've been to the pub many a time mostly when the weather allows it an never have I had a problem. So please let this be your last bit of input. Your boring!

We moored up outside the swan and bottle,and after the new management change,this place has gone down hill terribly,the last two visits this year have been a disaster,but as we moored up rather late and couldnt muster the energy to walk into town,so we had no choice but to use the pub,staff were outside smoking,good start,then when we came in our table was sticky and had food on it,the real ale wasnt too bad so we had high hopes,but then came the food,oh my god,the odd cold item maybe a small mistake but this was foul beyond belief,food cold,some coming out of order,just when you though it could not get any worse,guess what it has,THIS PUB MUST BE AVOIDED AT ALL COSTS!

Came in yesterday to try and avoid all the awful Jubilee hype and was treated to fine service from a young ish girl. The food came out promptly. In which I was served one of the specials in which I did struggle to finish! But I succeded as it was too good to waste. I has the Beef and Stilton farmhouse loaf. I recommend anyone passing by to try it! Overal the waiting team were kept busy but we were shown that we were always being considered and looked after. So overall I would say none of the recent comments give the place justice. I have been coming for a fair few times for 2-3 years so I knew of the recent manager change. But as fair as I can see the staff are all doing their jobs very well and service was great.

On another note the pubs beer garden is wonderful and I will enjoy coming back when the weather is more consistent
