Quinno _ left this review about Ye Olde Swiss Cottage

Well it certainly looks like a Swiss Chalet which is a reason to visit in itself. Sited directly opposite the Tube station (exit 3), it suffers by having been enveloped by a huge and constantly busy traffic junction so approach is through a subway. A large, light wood, sodium-lit and gently worn interior lies within, with sone homely/twee touches but I always like a carpet, armchairs and curtains combo though surely there’s a missed opportunity to follow the exterior theme a bit more. Apparently there’s an upstairs room and a members bar but both appeared to be out-of-bounds on my visit. Cask OBB available here, though I plumped Oatmeal Stout. I quite enjoyed my half hour here, though my companion took against it. 6.5

A bizarre pub which resembles a Swiss chalet situated on what essentially amounts to a huge traffic island flanked by four lanes of traffic *on each side*. To add to the charm, it's accessed by Swiss Cottage tube subway.

Once, back in the late 1980s I was refused entry as I wasn't wearing a tie! That demand certainly wouldn't be made today and having visited recently, I certainly can't see any reason to return.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Ye Olde Swiss Cottage

A truly improbable landmark, with no need to provide a description of what the place looks like. The interior is all light wood-panelling, with a two-part bar and a side lounge. Separate lounge and gallery upstairs (not visited). Large patio area on three sides. As a Sam Smiths house, only OBB (£2.90) available on handpump. Very handy for the eponymous tube station.
