Situated next to the bus garage, the Swan is probably one of the most unwelcoming pubs that I have come across. The exterior is at best tatty and run down. Peeling paintwork, rotting wood and cracked windows greet the visitor and it is difficult to make out the interior through the half frosted windows. If you do feel brave enough to venture inside you will find the pub surprisingly light and airy with plain cream walls and dark patterned ceiling but the bar is unsightly with a plain ugly low canopy and the overall décor is bland and boring. Don't expect an oasis of Ales – standard kegs prevail. The drug warning notices says something about the potential customer base and most people only seem to be there to play on the 2 pool tables or hang around the doorway on their mobiles. The music will inevitably be pounding dub reggae from the large speakers. The fact that it doesn't even get busy on Spurs match days despite being the first pub on the walk from the tube to the ground suggests that this place is a bit out of bounds to all but the regulars.
