It’s taken a while to get round to visit this one but finally made it this week when doing a small crawl south of Tower Bridge and finished up spending most of the evening in here.
This reinvented upmarket craft and cask ale house has been well described by previous reviewers but it is quite impressive how many good beers they manage to cram into the small corner bar area. The four ale pumps had Roosters Weakender, Bedlam Brewery Benchmark,Five Points Brewing Railway Porter and Belleville Valley Blanche for our visit and although we didn’t try any the 10 keg pumps, these had a varied selection of decent craft offerings from the likes of Cronx, ELB, Five Points and Belleville. And then there were a lot more choice contained in cans and bottles in the fridges behind the bar.
A real Brucey bonus for our visit was that Belleville are the brewer of the month for the pub and they were in on our evening going around offering free tasters of their core beers. So we got free tasters of their Blonde and Pale Ales on top of decent pints from Bedlam and Five points..
I certainly won’t leave it so long to pay a return visit to here.

Good bar in the 'modern beer style'. Popped in eight-ish on a Monday night and a good mix of regulars and visitors. The Redemption on cask was spot on, and the lad behind the bar knew his stuff. The keg selection was a bit underwhelming, but plenty of good London bottles to get stuck into. Food looked snacky and nice. Not cheap but where is round these parts. 8/10

Good choice of breweries from around the country and the beer has always been in great condition when I've been in. The staff have always been friendly and knowledgeable too. I think I'll be paying a visit more often when I'm in the area.

A good alternative to the chain coffee places when ambling around the Dickensian streets of the Shad Thames area, this was the venue for a works' Christmas lunch and the food and service were superb - I especially enjoyed my turkey. Downstairs, it hovers between excellence and averageness but the ale selection is good, albeit more of the fizzy, microbrew variety than traditional English ale. Prices aren't cheap as you would expect for how the neighbourhood has changed.

very disappointed with our recent visit, the staff were very slow and very rude, two beers came to over £11.
the main problem came when we were ignored at the bar for 5 minutes in a pretty empty pub. then the unfriendly bar staff charged us extra for an alternative beer when realising they didnt have another barrel available. this was after sitting around for ten minutes, it would have been ok if she was friendly about it, rather than hostile.
inside the pub there was no atmosphere.

The nearby Drafthouse and Anchor Tap pubs are a lot more friendly and better value for money

I wouldn't recommend the Dean Swift at all.
