Very nice pub - lively, friendly, decent beer (bit steep, as people mention,) music turned down pleasantly low.
BUT- the food is a shocker. Unless we were unlucky, be afraid, and stick to the drinks in this otherwise very nice pub.

On my latest UK pub tour I visited over 150 pubs, nearly 100 in London alone. My liver is holding up well, thanks for asking. I mention this in relation to the Old Swan because the pint of Pride I had there on 24 July 2014 at 3.20pm cost four pounds forty five pence, which was to that point the dearest pint I had sipped by a good 25p. For a bog standard pub in an admittedly nice area this is taking the biscuit. The pint by the way was quite fine and the service was OK.

Ok, not the most exciting pub in west london. But you can usually get a nice seat, the service is prompt and the lager is well kept. You are well away from the screaming masses and the pushy elbows and not a trendy in sight. Bit of a find really.

Beer was OK, reasonable choice and in good condition. Not much character, but nothing to complain about.

Not a remarkable pub by any means. It's quite inoffensive but also quite soulless and without much of an atmosphere. We left after a drink as there was nothing about the place which makes you want to stay, so can't speak for the food, but can imagine it's of the same standard as the pub, which is well below average.
