The Swan, Hammersmith

Went in there last night for the first time - looks initially to be an decent choice but the quality was woeful.

First pint was Aussie IPA (Morrisey & Fox) was poorly conditioned and extremely bland. Second pint was Midnight Bell from Leeds - decent condition but slightly vinegary - not quite enough to send back.

Third and final pint was Landlord which was just like drinking water. Not off but just didn't taste as it should - what are they doing to their beers?

We gave up and went next door to the Spoons where we got an excellent pint of Westerham Target - two pints for less than 4 so you've saving money too.

In their blurb Nicholsons say "You'd be hard pushed to find a finer real ale pub in Hammersmith London, or even in West Kensington, Barons Court and Fulham. In fact, we believe The Swan is unrivalled in its choice of quality cask-conditioned beers". If all their beers are like this then let's hope they're unrivalled...

Lowlander, Covent Garden

The selection of bottled beers is getting worse - Holland is poorly represented which is criminal given the plethora of decent beers to be found over there (Molen, Prael, Ij, etc). They may as well just call this a Belgian bar.

Food has always been good - just a shame about the beer choice...

The Albion, Bethnal Green

A nice pub except for the beer - on our recent visit the Pitfield Organic was like vinegar - lots of people turned their noses up at it yet no attempt was made to take it off - it seems they would sell it regardless. A real shame...
