A double fronted brick exterior hides a modern pub / restaurant internally. Presumably formerly separate bars, internally it is now one wooden floored space with a large bar area to the front and right of the central bar with lots of comfy sofa seating and then a separate dining area section to the left.
What looks like some original old beams remain to give some character, but this is largely a modern bar / restaurant hiding in a traditional pub skin.
Two banks of chrome drinks dispensers are lined up on a modern stainless steel bar top, but there are three Ale handpumps sitting in the middle of these and Fullers London Pride and Rebellion IPA were available for my visit with what looked like an Adnams Bitter pump clip reversed.
Clean, comfortable place for a drink, but if it is a more traditional pub experience you are after , then the Eagle on the opposite side of the High Street is more aligned to this.

This historic pub dates back to 1686 and it is believed that the two cottages originally next door were also an inn.
In 1928 Edward Tyrwhitt Drake was forced to sell some of his property in Amersham which included the Swan Inn. Harriet Day, a local benefactress whose family had kept the Swan Inn for a number of years built a block of almshouses nearby.

Guests will be able to browse a new menu which includes a wide variety of freshly prepared classic pub dishes such as Slow Cooked Shoulder of Lamb, daily fresh fish dishes and Homemade Pie of the Day. There is also a separate lunch menu offering freshly made sandwiches and salads, perfect if you’re just nipping in for a quick bite.
FOOD SERVED: Fresh modern British
