Celebrate UK Coffee Week at the Swan, Shakespeare’s Globe

Regular readers will know how much SEEN loves Bankside. Museums, restaurants and great views abound next to the river. Swan, Shakespeare’s Globe is nestled in the heart of Southwark, home to some of the UK’s best coffee roasters and producers. Where better to celebrate UK Coffee Week?

Swan’s own coffee comes from the very highly regarded Extract Coffee and is the perfect breakfast accompaniment, whether you’re hosting an elegant morning meeting or a long and leisurely brunch affair. Swan’s picturesque dining rooms boast panoramic cityscape views and are the perfect places to enjoy a cup of coffee alongside a selection of tantalising breakfast dishes from Swan’s esteemed Executive Chef Allan Pickett, such Swan’s signature Breakfast Brioche Bun (Cumberland sausage, maple-cured streaky bacon, Legbar fried egg), Swan’s Homemade Muesli (ancient grains, seeds, dried cranberries and apricots, coconut or Greek yoghurt, berry compote) or a Green Machine smoothie.

A short walk from London Bridge and Blackfriars stations, Swan, Shakespeare’s Globe features a large open plan bar downstairs, and restaurant upstairs, furnished throughout in an elegantly simple and comfortable style. The venue showcases the best of classic British dishes, with a contemporary twist.
