About the Pub

A bit more interesting than the regular Wetherspoon's shop conversion, the White Swan was created from disused council /union offices in 2000. It backs onto Swan Yard, the remaining part of a much larger yard belonging to the Old White Swan, demolished in the 1960s, which stood next to the post office, separated from Club Union House by the railway station. This is possibly the best place to drink at the top end of Upper Street and you certainly will not find a better range of beers at better prices anywhere in N1. The tasteful Art Deco interior reminds one of a 1930s cinema, including elaborate banisters, panelling and mirrors, with split levels and an upper gallery floor too. There is an ever-changing range of British real ales, usually at least seven at one time, cider usually comes from Weston's. Regular mini beer festivals and cheap food to boot! Well worth a visit - a real community pub, which is a rarity for the area. Tube, overground - Highbury and Islington.
